Parallels is the fourth full-length released under Jason Chung's distinctive moniker, Nosaj Thing. Masterfully dimensional, Parallels represents the acclaimed Los Angeles-based electronic producer/composer/performer's most diverse, vital work yet. As such, Chung sees Parallels as representing a kind of redemptive rebirth. The album's compellingly elusive, uncategorizable sonics developed out of what he terms a personal and musical "identity crisis." According to Chung, working with a group of collaborators on Parallels that combined both longtime friends and new creative partners added "new energy which pushed me not to limit myself. Everything felt fresh and alive." The title Parallels in fact evokes the intense, intimate duality Nosaj Thing and his collaborators share.
