In 2011, Optic Echo commissioned Fischer and Laderas to create an album together. Seeking to bridge Marcus’ delicate multi-instrumental sonics with Ted’s orchestrated chamber-drone, they started with a number of long-form improvisations and shaped them into the wide-ranging pieces on the album. All sounds have been given space to unfold and blossom in a timeline full of contrasts and quiet moments of beauty. Marcus and Ted's separate and unsynchronized loops evolve and coalesce into transitory patterns that are both breathtaking and imperfect. Within this process of overlapping sounds, larger patterns, or tessellations are revealed to the listener.

Tessellations features cello, lap harp, tuning forks, synthesizers, guitar, percussion and analog and digital processing. Copies are hand numbered in a limited edition of 250, silkscreened on recycled cardboard sleeves, and contain individual high quality download coupon cards including an additional track. Art by Marcus Fisher, mastered by Taylor Deupree at 12k and cut by Rashad at Dubplates & Mastering.
