'This Is My Hand' began with a question. What is the value of music? My Brightest Diamond's Shara Worden was working on an audio-visual collaboration, Matthew Barney and Jonathan Belper's six-hour long cine-opera, River of Fundament, set in the automobile factories of latter-day Detroit. In the film, a high school-style marching band is seen in procession through the streets of Motor City and playing in its vast, echoing factory spaces. This struck a chord in Shara, for whom the new album would be a purposeful readdressing of music-making on the most basic, tribal level. Produced by Shara herself and keyboardist Zac Rae, 'This Is My Hand' is a bold chapter in the unfurling My Brightest Diamond story. Its exploration of music and its rhythmic urgency escort Shara's chamber-music aesthetic out of the chamber and back into the dance hall and rock bar.
