Jessica Curry – Fields Were the Essence (Deluxe)
Available only in a limited fine art edition of 80 copies. Each of these pastoral beauties comes housed in a vintage 3.5” film can. Included in the can is an artified, 3″ mini CD hubbed to the inside of the lid, a set of 4 round hi-res photographic prints of Jessica’s walking locale, copies of her original score for the piece, twigs gathered on her walks, and a mini textual scroll, all nestled on a bed of moss. Each can itself is hand stamped on the outside, covered with photo and credit info, and verbiage hand typed on an antique typewriter. Befitting the music to the extreme!
Handmade numbered foldout card sleeve in a limited run of 100 copies…
‘Home’ is an album which spans more than 2,000 kilometres, two families and a lifetime of experiences.
Darren Harper and Jared Smyth’s collaborative effort examines the spaces they have shaped as husbands, fathers and community members in the two very different towns of Tallahassee, Florida and Nederland, Colorado.
Although the two men have never met, they have produced an album that explores the most intimate corners of their lives.
Through the sounds of tinkling streams, children drumming, warm guitars and crunching ice, the pair have crafted an intensely personal album, which invites us into the parts of the world they have made their own.
This is an album full of warmth, subtlety and power that explores what it means to call somewhere ‘home’.
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!
