Illusion of Safety & Z’evs/t LP
Illusion of Safety & Z’ev have had an LP sitting at the plant for almost two years now, with constant delays due to covid, high temperatures, war, and broken machinery… Z’ev is of course, the late great pulley-percussionist and noise artist from the 70s until his death in 2017. Illusion of Safety being the project of Daniel Burke, active since 1983, who has been quietly sitting on this material since 2008. Together the LP is a bouquet of different sounds interweaving into deep drone soundscapes on each side, then delicately dropping you off at the doorstep of incidental field recordings and sidereal instrumentals as each side ends. From Daniel Burke: “All sound by Daniel Burke & Z’EV. A mail collaboration begun in 2008 finalized in 2012. At the conclusion of the Z’EV & Illusion of Safety performance at Enemy in Chicago in 2007, Z’EV approached me to work together on a release. In 2008 he provided me with a number of short recordings (half of which are yet to be used) of acoustic sources which like his live performance sounded very rich and surprisingly electronic. To his source material I structured the album sides adding field recordings, sampling, electro-acoustics, and Eurorack modular synth, before returning to him for additional treatments.” Vinyl Edition Co-released By: Public Eyesore, No Part Of It, Feast Of Hate And Fear, Cipher Productions, Oxidation, Korm Plastics, Drone Records, Personal Archives, Tribe Tapes, Liquid Death Records.
