9. Thymus Gland - Exhibitions

Multi-instrumentalist Jon Natchez has recorded and performed with such bands as Beirut, Okkervil River, and The War on Drugs. Along with film scoring, his solo releases include the dual EP Swaths I and Swaths II (2013).

An often overlooked gland, the thymus, caught Natchez’s attention. He was intrigued to learn that it is the only organ that shrinks—or “involutes”—during one’s lifetime, a fact that inspired both the title and distinctive format of this instrumental, “Thymic Involution.”
