Risil is a collective of musicians that are all somehow connected to each other in some form or fashion. Risil''s membership includes Guillermo Herren (Prefuse 73/Savath & Savallas), Zach Hill (Hella), Tyondai Braxton (Battles), John McEntire (Tortoise), Alejandra Deheza (School Of Seven Bells), Eva Puyuelo Muns (Savath & Savalas).The project started as a chance for a large number of people to freely collaborate without a set goal for the end result or achieving a certain sound.. This turned into about 50 songs with possibly 5 different versions of each within a year. Therefore, this is the first volume of Risil recordings, they are split into three volumes based on the time each piece was made and the players who worked together the most during each period of open time. Also available in a limited double vinyl pressing of 1000 copies.
