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)
