[FS07] Bil Vermette – ‘Archives I’ C40
In the late 70s Bil Vermette set out to harness new synth technology and the evolving vocabulary of electronic music to realize his own internal music. Selected from a collection of rediscovered recordings, “Archives I” brings light to the early environments and motifs that would reappear in his private-press LP “Katha Visions” and later self-released works. Through these quiet, late night home studio reflections and short themes for film, join Bil on his long trail to Katha. Pro-dubbed on chrome, edition of 100

[FS08] Panabrite – ‘Seychelles’ C44
Norm Chambers has developed an illustrator’s command over his synthesized aquatic realm. Against an evocatively unfolding backdrop of gestural shadow and crosshatch are cast bright reliefs of melody; cascading tones and filtered white noise dart in and out of the mid-ground. A deep current wends its way past teeming reefs and through purple grottoes, spilling out into the blue-green lagoons of a living Paradise. Pro-dubbed on chrome, edition of 100

[FS09] Brett Naucke – ‘Home By Now’ C31
In an instant Presence wells around you. Naucke (Face Worker, Catholic Tapes) moves deftly through this suite of ambient works, filling the stereo field with dense timbral structures, transcending placid drift through a series of oblique compositional transforms. Resounding polyphony gathers and crests, interrupted by radiophonic counterpoint, reforming, and finally resolving into an alive, dynamic stillness. Pro-dubbed on chrome, edition of 100
