may 2010 release ; incredible set of underwater soundscapes from field recordist / composer douglas quin, here making his vinyl debut ...

gorgeous both as a sound document (as with all of quins works, im flabbergasted at the complexity in the contained, entirely acoustic sound-worlds) and as a ... tangible document (its really a lovely record ; milky clear vinyl in a decent weight in an embossed sleeve with a whole envelope full of documentation) ...

taiga 11 - douglas quin "fathom" lp

packaged in custom letterpress materials.

douglas quins fathom brings together four extended underwater soundscapestwo each from the arctic and antarctic. the recordings have been gathered over a period of 15 years, capturing an extraordinary palette of sonic voices, events, spaces, and textures. to the human ear, these soundscapes are haunting and otherworldly; yet they are very much of this worldout of earreach. the tracks are minimally edited and are his first field recordings to be archived in vinyl.

included with the release is a sealed envelope containing an insert with specific locations, animals, and other elements heard, giving listeners the option to absorb sound with or without association. the envelope is printed with liner notes and comments from dutch journalist and music critic ren van peer. mastered by james plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin-vinyl, fathom comes packaged in custom letterpressed materials and is presented as a limited edition of 1000.

touch press release...
touch # tone 14
cd - 177 ringtones
99 tracks - 44:58.17

the process of transferring made-to-measure ringtones to your mobile phone is, at present, a fixed casino... chart hits, cod celebrity voices, action heroes, lame keyboard melodies... so the likelihood of hearing one of these on the 07.34 from the suburbs is, at present, remote, although new ranges of mobiles are on hand to promise better things. anticipating this, each of the included has been composed with exactly this eventuality in mind. they are in one way or another intended to be experienced as isolated, personal interventions: low-res loops, creature calls, in low-res environments...

in whichever form you find them here, do sample remodel and employ these humble suggestions... we assume you already agree that the cheap 'cheep cheep' tones of nokia, ericsson and the others leave a lot to be desired. but there is huge commercial possibility here, not least with the fact that these selections have not been motivated by database usage... this is far cooler, and the contributors have responded accordingly... this release shows what is possible and how far behind the phone companies actually are despite their desperation to uncover new ways of selling the next generation of phones to an already saturated market.
