Alapastel – Hidden for the Eyes
Each heavyweight custom double sleeve is individually rubber-stamped and numbered by hand in a limited first edition of one hundred and fifty copies for the world. Every package includes a concealed handwritten download code, glass-mastered CD and insert with original artwork by Silvia Bobeková and an individually numbered, handwritten dedication from the artist himself.
Hidden for the Eyes is the exquisite debut album from Slovakian composer Lukáš Bulko recording as Alapastel. This treasure trove of neo-classical grandeur, electro-acoustic production and subtle folk undertones was eight years in the making and clearly signals the arrival of a unique and original new talent. Lukáš speaks with spirited and assured musical voice in an ambitious, pastoral and otherworldly collection, enhanced by the vocal talents of Alex Lukáčová and Marián Hrdina and the sensitive mix and mastering of Adam Dekan.
