The album features 12-artists including Laurie Spiegel, Lyra Pramuk, Visible Cloaks, and Ryuichi Sakamoto producing 32 second-long compositions, with the album clocking in at exactly 6 minutes 32 seconds.
The project is based around the idea that roughly a third of listeners on digital platforms will skip over a track within the first 30 seconds.
PRSNT is accompanied by text from Shumon Bazar and François J. Bonnet, as well as a collection of photographs.
