For the album, Hassell aimed to ‘paint with sound’, with the production style mirroring the meaning of ‘pentimento’, defined as the “reappearance in a painting of earlier images, forms, or strokes that have been changed and painted over.”
Seeing Through Sound follows the first edition in the Pentimento series in 2018 – Listening to Pictures (Pentimento Volume 1) – as well as Hassell’s reissue of his 1977 debut LP Vernal Equinox in March.
