"Fawn" is the 5th studio release by queer outsider chamber music group Disemballerina.
It is a concept EP built around theme of human acute stress response, with specific emphasis on the range of different physiological reactions that often occur in conjunction with a harmful or potentially harmful life event. Each piece of music on the recording corresponds to a particular distinctive stress response. The three song titles, "Pancada", "Somnambulist" and "Garnets" individually represent the diverse and extreme survival modes of Fight, Flight and Freeze.
