Each copy of this beautiful album will be completely unique from the next including dusty Bartholomew clothbound maps, circa 1880-1940. With each listener being in the possession of a map, treasures are waiting to be unearthed. As such, '5 2 1' takes the listener on a deeply personal journey which mirrors the very subjectivity of music; each and every listener will experience it differently. Life echoes into the music, because the journey is what ultimately matters, the invaluable experiences shaping the record for all of its days to come, and navigation is never a straight forward thing!
A complete / unique vintage (very rare) Bartholomew's clothbound foldout map, 3 x hand stamped three inch CDs housed in coloured seethrough covers, set of three Gerald Leslie prints pressed on luxury 250g gesso card stock, vintage roll-bell bus tickets individually numbered to represent the number of each CD edition. All of the above rests inside stitched / sealed / numbered vintage brown waxed bags with scent. These little beauties really are completely unique 'one off limited editions'.
Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar.
These six tracks were recorded during a week of seclusion in a house deep in the woods of Northern Ontario with portions recorded in a cabin in the Gatineau region of Quebec. The recordings include various sample sources including goats and birds in Switzerland, a choir featuring Kuepfer’s parents, and wolves from the Aspden Valley Wildlife Sanctuary near Rousseau, Ontario.
Omniiq has been composing sounds for over three decades. From the more conventional classical training in the early years to the freedom of sonic experimentation now, the common thread is a passion for creating. Accidental composition. Chance ambiences. (Un)fortunate soundscapes. Ordinary sounds manipulated beyond recognition. Aural abuse. The journey is all important, the destination will look after itself.
Ekca Liena is an alias of Daniel W J Mackenzie which concentrates on the celestial, melancholic and sometimes blissful side of ambient music. Over the range of his enchanting, mainly long-form compostions there is a clear influence from ritual psychedelic, noise, doom, post-rock and at times modern classical arrangement. His discography has seen work on a variety of labels including Dead Pilot, Small Doses and Entropy and with an enormous amount of material currently in the works this list is hoped to expand.
