TRS070 will come in only one, extremely lovely and quite limited edition of 50 copies. Each of the 50 copies comes as a sewn 24 page booklet with a unique, modified vintage wallpaper wrap around cover. The hand worked pages are composed of hi res archival prints of 8 original Colin Herrick collages, a couple of which have flip back options…these prints are printed on the back of various antique and distressed papers, such as pages from a rare copy of The Universal Penman, original 160 year old French architectural drawings and others. Interspersed in each are fold open pages from an antique book of appropriately architectural and gothic american glassware, and a vintage strip of portuguese decorative shelf paper. Each booklet is sewn into it’s cover, hand stamped and labelled and held tight with an elastic band. Also inside is a mounted, small black envelope with a hand artified 3” Mini CD-R. And lastly…each copy will come with a 100 year old children’s “Logomachy” alphabet game card tucked into it…the earliest purchasers will get a card with their initial on it!
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 and numbered recycled packaging…

Japan-based musician Jan Linton returns with his first extended-and non Japanese-release for several years, in cooperation with the makers of the Buddha Machine, FM3. Titled “Buddha Machine Music”, it continues the experimental themes and ambient techniques from his collaborations with Leo Abrahams (better known as Eno’s regular guitarist), Richard Barbieri (ex Japan), Beatsystem (Derek Pierce),and his academic work under Dr. Joseph Hyde. Prior to this he released several albums and singles in the avant rock vein, from major and cult labels in Japan.
This mini album takes the sounds from Buddha Machines 1 and 2, and morphs them into complete pieces or songs with surprising results, combining them with some live solos of ethinic instruments such as the Chinese Zhongruan, (or, “Moon Guitar”), played by Linton.
