As the follow-up to "Memoirs of..." awaits completion, dezhonest has decided to release "On the Eve of Seclusion" (originally intended to be a bonus materials CD) as a prequel that is as relaxed as it is hauntingly climatic.
"On the Eve..." is an instrumental album and an exclusive collection of select dezhonest productions created between 2006 and 2011. This project displays the artist's dexterity in switching between electronic and acoustic instrumentation (as well as occasionally blending the two).
Though each instrumental was constructed at different periods of the artist's life, the consistency of the full work at hand is undeniable. In this work there is much to be witnessed in the crafted potential, experimental blemishes, and devoted growth of dezhonest as a producer and musician.

dezhonest: "One thing this instrumental represents is the observation of a process. A change. A slow and mysterious (but graceful) change like a sunrise or a change of season. A shift that is beautiful but not quite understood... until observed."
[ Written by Desmond J. Briggs ]
Track Name: Call of the Muse (Arise, Arouse)
dezhonest: "This instrumental represents the excitement of trying something new. Something mysterious, something sensuous, something unforgettable, or even all three!"
