Launched in 2017, for the Dearthstar project Rosenfeld hung a multi-microphone array from the ceiling of Frankfurt’s Portikus gallery. The installation continuously recorded for four weeks, routing its signal through live-processing software to be subsequently replayed through four speakers.

Rosenfeld reworked these recordings to compose the album with bursts of piano darting out of heavily amplified silence.

Deathstar follows Rosenfeld’s collaboraitve LP Vertice with Ben Vida, released in May.
