Falling Theater was arranged by Maxim Moston of Antony and the Johnsons and features contributions from several members of the Johnsons, as well as Au Revoir Simone, MGMT, New York Philharmonic, and The Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem. The album reflects the state of America's pre-war movie theaters: both luxurious and decayed. Like the theaters that exist now as something distinctively far from where they began, it presents music that has been “time treated.” Baim designed the album to be both musically seamless and lush as well as offer some unexpected elements and textures similar to the way a faded pair of jeans might have one ripped knee. The album art was shot in Los Angeles’ theater district by Lauren Dukoff, a photographer noted for her portraiture and documentary work of musicians and actors.
