Body/Dilloway/Head is the debut collaboration between Aaron Dilloway and Body/Head (the duo of Kim Gordon and Bill Nace) that further discombobulates their already-fractious music into abstract noise cut-ups. 

The album is the result of the band handing over previously unreleased studio sessions to Aaron Dilloway for processing and editing. The original raw guitar and voice pieces have been manipulated, looped, pulled through tape-heads and moulded into experimental sound pieces. The atmospheric hum of amp noise ebbs with its own pulse, and builds to gently unnerving peaks, while fragments of vocals and guitar repeat over and over themselves, never quite reaching clarity, but drawing the listener ever further into the sound. 

“One of the things I like most about playing improvised music and especially in Body/Head with Bill is the constantly exhilarating freedom and surprise about what is going to happen at any given moment," says Gordon. "Making this record with Aaron Dilloway, who I have always admired so much, added in another layer of unknown and another way of giving up control. Aaron took our sounds / music as a source and had ‘his way with it’ so to speak, crushing whatever narrative that existed in order to enter into it and making something different than what we would have done as Body/Head.” 

Aaron Dilloway is a solo artist who collaborates ceaselessly, and is a former member of Wolf Eyes; Bill Nace has charted an iconoclastic trajectory as a freewheeling improviser and composer on his own and in group settings; Kim Gordon, best known as a member of Sonic Youth, was always active outside that band during its existence and continues to expand her tireless horizons since its dissolution.
