Beyond collecting the Testimonium Songs, the record has a life of its own, with the contributions of stellar musicians David Grubbs, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Michael Zerang, and Jim Baker, additional vocals by Melina Ausikaitis, and musical material not included in the performance. The cover art was made by renowned Chicago artist Jason Lazurus.

Joan of Arc's current core roster-Kinsella, Theo Katsaounis, Melina Ausikaitis, Bobby Burg, and Jeremy Boyle-will DJ the opening-night festivities, and they've also contributed art to the exhibit. Lin Hixson, cofounder of the ensemble Every House Has a Door, chips in the minimalist stage design she produced for Testimonium, a collaborative performance piece she did with Joan of Arc in 2013 (the band's album from the same year, Testimonium Songs, came out of the project). Kinsella supplies pages from The Communist Manifesto he's pockmarked with orange, blue, and pink highlighters. This work in particular is strangely inviting-it's easy to get frustrated by the messy colors, but the coded notes are absorbing.

Sound - 7 Joan of Arc is a predominately indie band known for the odd writing processes it uses. They once recorded an improvised album in two days and another time they wrote a live soundtrack for a movie. This time, the writing process was much more specific and purposeful (supposedly). Over a three-year period, the band composed this album with a Chicago theater troupe. Despite the fact that this album was meticulously written over three years, it still feels like an improvised, jam album.

Perhaps the most tightly performed Joan of Arc material, Testimonium Songs feels less like a proper album and more like a sidebar, deeply aligned with the harsh tones of Reznikoff's bleak poems. The glaring issue that underlies Testimonium Songs is that it was made to accompany a performance piece, and without the visual, the album feels half-formed. Or consider a donation?.

Testimonium Songs, an album that was high concept even for Joan of Arc, was released in 2013. The record was a document of songs written for a live collaboration with experimental theater group Every House Has a Door in the group's production based on poet Charles Reznikoff's Testimony, a translation of courtroom transcripts in cases of workplace negligence in early America
