Started working on new material and modular patching possibilities for the two day residency at Iklectic Art-Lab the 23rd and 24th of April.
Colin Herrick did an amazing job putting together the covers for “Time Woke Up In Darkness – Excerpts vol 2” just released on Time Released Sound. Take a closer look at the photos we did when unpacking one (out of 65) of the handmade deluxe version.
A really nice review (in Italian) of our new release on Time Released Sound (US) on Music Won’t Save You.
“A practical approach and often ghostly in the outcome, “Woke Up In Time excerpts Darkness Vol 2” is a creative realism, applied to a microcosm of notes and noises, suspended and flickering in a darkness broken down and rebuilt in almost a ‘ time-weighted electro-acoustic joints.” – Raffaello Russo
A two day residency at Iklectic Art-lab is confirmed for April the 23rd and 24th. The residency will mark the release of our new album. Both editions will be available at the concerts.
Our new release on Time Released Sound (US) is now available on bandcamp via Time Released Sound. Also available in the US through Aquarius Records .. two versions! – a super deluxe, limited to just 65 copies, is housed in a collaged, folded spread of vector drawings, with every page drawn on, numbers and letters and symbols are rubbed and scratched into patterns on the various drawings. Each panel is folded into eighths, creating pockets containing a textured insert printed on old educational material, the cd in an envelope, and a numbered tag, all in a square, hand stamped translucent envelope. Then of course, there’s the less limited, less expensive regular version, which comes in a digipak, with a much simplified version of the above described artwork.
Big news .. Time Released Sound has just released Vektormusik “Time Woke Up In Darkness excerpts vol.2“.
The release will come in two versions. The first limited edition version in an edition of just 65 copies comes as a collaged and folded double page spread of vector drawings. Each page has then been extensively modified and uniquely “drawn on” with sheets of vintage Letraset lettering. Abstracted numbers, letters and symbols are rubbed, scratched and scraped into patterns on the drawings in red, white and black. Each panel is then folded into 8ths, creating two pockets containing a textual insert printed on antique educational material, an original fragment of Letraset to rub onto the artwork, or wherever you’d like, yourself, and an envelope with a factory pressed disc and a hanging numbered tag, all within a 6 inch square, outer hand stamped translucent envelope. Graphic design by Colin Herrick (TRS).
Mastered by Wil Bolton.
“Originally composed for a theatrical production, Danish duo Vektormusik unfurl an ethereal, otherworldly sound that is loosely piano based, but for much of the record, the piano disappears beneath a field of static (or never appears at all). Blurred expanses of glitch and squelch are smoothed into softly staticky transmissions, laced with hushed melodies, cricket like chitter, processed guitars, whispered strings, billowy low end thrum, gristled hum, all in a state of near stasis, with buried rhythms looped and softly pulsing, smeared into indistinct, barely there throbs, the surrounding atmosphere a bleary-eared field of gauzy shimmer, shifting easily from mysterious moody murk, to crystalline collage, to crackly, abstract, almost digi-dub, but all of those sounds presented intimately, and sparsely, occasionally building to mini-crescendos, but more often than not, seemingly suspended in some strange, simple soundworld, all of their lowercase sounds woven into a dreamlike web, a sonicscape that manages to be mysterious, cinematic and sublime.” – Andee Connors (Aquarius Records)
A brand new podcast series by the danish music collective Uhrlaut is kicked off today. We did the very first one, a retrospective mix of some of the records we have been spinning lately.
The very end of the mix includes a short dialog between label curator Christian Villum and Kristoffer (Vektormusik) about the selection of tracks and forthcoming plans for Vektormusik. Spoiler alert .. a new release on US label Time Released Sound late March! Stay tuned for more info very soon.
