Two new releases available from the in house label Horror Fiction Tapes. Incredibly excited and humbled to be associated with these two artists. Thank you to everyone for their support, I cannot express my appreciation enough. Grab these over on the H/F site.
HF03 Joshua Dumas - Rough MatinalsChicago pianist, musician and filmmaker Joshua Dumas exploring the opportunity, optimism, and anxiety in the moments before sunrise. Romantic modernism. Baroque introspection concealed inside a envelope of densely interpreted keys and stark ambient miasma. Moments that unfold the ears and awaken the mind to both possibilities great and limitations cruel.
Forty five hand assembled copies, professionally dubbed on chrome tape. Inserts duplicated directly on individual pages of a 1964 copy of the novel The Dark Side Of The Earth, by Alfred Bester. Individually numbered and hand stamped liner notes. You may also want to check out Joshua’s incredible new generative music app Chicago Avenue Moon
HF04 øjeRum - sange til døendeRaw hand stitched tape collage from Copenhagen's Paw Grabowski. Hiss and static that become formative composition elements shrouding a downward spiral of strings and patiently delivered vocal in ambiguous tones of white and grey. A ghostly erosion of sanity, the creak of a door left ajar, the scrape of soft metal against old oak floors. Shadows without figures.
Forty five hand assembled copies, professionally dubbed on chrome tape. Inserts duplicated directly on individual pages of a 1983 copy of the novel Channel's Destiny, by Jean Lorrah and Jacqueline Lichtenberg. Individually numbered and hand stamped liner notes.
