"Fawn" is the 5th studio release by queer outsider chamber music group Disemballerina.
It is a concept EP built around theme of human acute stress responses, with specific emphasis on the range of different physiological reactions that often occur in conjunction with a harmful or potentially harmful life event. Each piece of music on the recording corresponds to a particular distinctive stress response. The three song titles, "Pancada", "Somnambulist" and "Garnets" individually represent the diverse survival modes of Fight, Flight and Freeze.

Thank Goddess for this wondrous album, which I should have picked up aeons ago. The otherworldly atmosphere this trio weaves is utterly intoxicating and wholly (holy) their own.
Sincerest thanks for putting this and Feminazgul’s other albums in the feed today @Sælzer Bub; your timing was impeccable! MJ
