Opin began life in tumult at the end of an engagement and an abrupt relocation. After a month spent traveling between couches, Landis Wine set up a small recording interface on the bed in the room he was renting that spring. He began to work on songs that were markedly different from those in his band White Laces, songs conceived without consideration of traditional parts and built piece by piece from disparate synths, samples, short instrumental loops and bits of found sound from his environment. This approach also yielded a lyrical frankness that Wine had never attempted before.
