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'.
Pascal Savy returns with further deconstructions and the application of fairly mind bending physics and philosophies to composition (rhizome, phase differentiation and deterritorialization) – namely the use of erosion, decay, control (or lack of), connectivity & heterogeneity, tonal mutations and cross pollination to allow his works to organically grow with lives of their own.
The four tracks within are really rather lovely representations and interpretations of this processing style which include a kit and source list of: A couple of piano samples recorded in a disused Norfolk windmill (hang on… a piano…in a windmill?) plucked and bowed guitar, processed sine waves, FM synth, a self-oscillating analogue filter, a turntable, monome and handheld recorder with found sounds from a French church and Kew Gardens….nice!
Limited edition run of 65 3″ CD-R’s on hand stamped recycled packaging…
Lunar Miasma is the alias of Panos Alexiadis. Passage To The Unknown is a lush synth based trip into the cosmos. Think Tangerine Dream fucked on MDMA soundtracking a NASA mission exploring the outer reaches of the galaxy. Dreamy!
Limited to 100 copies worldwide. 3″ cd-r comes with download code in gorgeous letterpress cardstock…
Piano Vert is an installation piece for three concentric tape loops; 8, 9 and 10 feet long. Three short piano patterns are cut into loops from an extended piece and played back simultaneously with minimal live adjustments. The first in szilárd’s “colourpalette” loop series.

Limited edition of 100 that comes in a numbered handmade sleeve, with an insert containing a personal message from Chisman introducing the EP…
Flaming Pines’s first release for 2012 is a magical new EP by Seth Chrisman called ”Aetherdrift,, Do You Copy”.
Chrisman hails from New Mexico in the USA, but drew heavily on sonic material gathered on a trip to Costa Rica to produce this memorable EP.
Stumbling around after dark armed with a tape recorder and a radio, Chrisman said he returned home inspired by the ”lovely cacophony” produced by the mixture of natural sounds and fragmented AM radio transmisions.
”Aetherdrift” delicately and powerfully conveys both the euphoria and disorientation of travel — the sense of drift and near disembodiment experienced by every traveller as they arrive as a disconnected outsider to a new country.
It is a subtle and sophisticated work which, with its emphasis on geography, travel and connections, is a terrific fit with the preoccupations of the Flaming Pines label, and we are very proud to be associated with it.
