Directed by Glenn Bach, Double Blind is an improvising ensemble dedicated to remix-based projects and alternative soundtracks. The ensemble features a fluctuating roster of members, often separated by significant geographical distance. Their first project, Wounded Speaker, inspired the formation of MPRNTBL and was the first official release. A flawed recording of a live performance of Wounded Speaker generated an offshoot remix project, Signal Out. Another project, At the Edge of this Forest, features a live recording of alternative soundtracks inspired by the short films of the Brothers Quay.
