Each 3″ cd comes in a handmade sleeve and contains a statement from the artist…
The Great Blue Heron, such an elegant and majestic creature. Fortunately, they also happen to be indigenous to Michigan- though it’s quite a rare and special event to happen upon one. We are lucky enough to have an area near where we live which is now a protected Rookery for Herons. Watching such a large bird with an impressive wingspan fly overhead almost takes you back to prehistoric times. One realizes how truly unique and precious these creatures are, and how we must make every effort to maintain adequate habitats for them to flourish. With this piece, I tried to capture the scale, elegance and mystery of this magnificent bird. – The Green Kingdom, Shelby Township Michigan, USA

‘Quiet, Please’ is an 80mm CDr release, documenting the degeneration of society’s sonic landscape through location recordings, tape-loops and double bass…
”Quiet, Please deals with the issue of ‘noise’ as a polluting yet ultimately unavoidable element in an acoustic space, through the medium of lo-fi location recording and magnetic tape deterioration. Inspired by R. Murray Schafer’s The Tuning of the World (1977), the composition draws upon the concept of an ever-degrading sonic environment caused by humanity’s technological development. The affliction of noise pollution is something which, in all likelihood, cannot be avoided if society is to continue to progress – noise is therefore inevitable. For Quiet, Please the location setting of a library was chosen for its cultural significance in the issue of noise control. Firstly, the concept of education and learning ties in with the topics surrounding human progress: the process of formal education is fundamental to the technical and social advancements causing this shift from high to low-fidelity soundscape. Secondly, in the case of the recordings made in this piece, the library seems to act as an example of the impossibility of complete noise eradication. The library – which is generally accepted as a quiet place of study – in fact, contains a great deal of noise pollution, which is then amplified by the cultural expectation of ‘silence’…” ~ Ithaca Trio, 2011

‘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’.
