Recognized as a "stirring, haunting, modern masterpiece" upon it's release in 2002, DECASIA is a symphony of deteriorated nitrate found film footage. (Jonathan Jones, the Guardian) Drawing from a century of film history scoured from archives like the George Eastman House and the Museum of Modern Art, Morrison has assembled a poetic collage of images marked by the swirling silver abstractions created by the decomposing nitrate emulsion. The film's "thunderous and dissonant" score, written by Bang on a Can co-founder Michael Gordon, and performed by the 55-piece basel sinfonietta is presented in 5.1 surround or 2.0 stereo sound. (Dennis Harvey, Variety) the disc includes a bonus film: LIGHT IS CALLING (2004), another collaboration between Morrison and Gordon.
