Christina Carter – A Blossom Fell – Many Breaths CD-R 1

‘Sibling’ to the Masque Femine CDR. The microphone is the screen, and the voice is the face. Culmination of the exploration of cinematic acting exclusively through the aural capture point. Once again, lyrics by others transmuted through instantaneous, spontaneous melody. The combination of word and melody into multiple implications and meanings. Short in duration but experientially lengthy. Meant to be savored. Eat this flower slow. As always, hand painted/written covers. Edition of 122.
– C. Carter


We’ve got about 20 of these for distro. $15 US / $18 ROW. Drop a line if you’d like one…

Worlds Experience Orchestra – Beginning of a New Birth LP 6

Worlds Experience Orchestra
Beginning of a New Birth

Just grabbed this a few days ago via the ef(in)sane blog, and had to do a repost here. Ultra rare private press LP that has little available info, but is a serious slice of spirit / free / out / in / group mind. I cut a bit off track two so you can get an idea of this will take you. Amazing, Amazing stuff.
