The final installment from Metavari's original full band line-up.
The "Studies" volumes are a series of compositions scored to collections of field recordings. The recordings are taken by Metavari; cataloguing sounds and experiences from tour. In May 2009, Metavari toured 14 U.S. cities with advanced copies of Be One of Us and Hear No Noise and captured the recordings for this volume. Loosen the Bands was written in the months following and is the first piece in the "Studies" series.
The piece is divided into three breaths – part one titled, "HR1948-1949," part 2, "HR1903," and the final breath, "HR1851-1852."
