Possessed was produced to soundtrack the 2018 essay film of the same name by artist collective Metahaven and Rob Schröder. It sees the Hyperdub-affiliated artist touch on drone pieces, as well as works for piano, cello and violin.

Galya Bisengalieva features on the soundtrack playing violin while Oliver Coates contributes cello and other string production to a number of the record's pieces. You can hear a track from Possessed, called 'Hyphae', above.
