Artist: EMERALD WEB/SAM MCLOUGHLIN & ALISON COOPER
Title: Garden Of Mirrors / Supernatural Lancashire Volume Two
Format: LP
Label: Disposable Music
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"2013 release. Warehouse find. The ongoing Disposable Music library subscription series is a series which pools some of the best emotive, comprehensive, previously unavailable instrumental music from the unmarked archives of experimental artists within the expanding Finders Keepers family and presents it as a series of limited uniformed archival vinyl discs. With unlimited entry to the archives belonging to names like Ciani, Spoerri, Rollin, Epple, Korzynski, and Massey, Disposable Music have taken the best in unadulterated, underexposed and unattached mood music and given these homeless compositions a place, purpose and time to thrive. The archive of Kat Epple in Miami is a well-preserved timeline that documents early analog experimental synth modules and the development of Silicon Valley music technology into the 1980s and beyond. It also includes a wealth of music produced and manufactured with her partner, synthesis, and flautist Bob Stohl. The Garden Of Mirrors is a collection of music made for ethereal planetarium performances and a series of laser shows which earned the duo of Kat and Bob the collective moniker of Emerald Web. These multi-purpose recordings remastered from rare tapes typify the duos unique ambient sound that would win them a firm fixture in the hearts of a generation of new age devotees and proto-techno enthusiasts who operated and survived outside the parameters of the major music industry that dominated the era. Distributed by mail, during concerts, or in health food and book stores the privately pressed instrumental music of Emerald Web would also make its way in the films of astronomer Carl Sagan and other natural history educational programs. Here you will find a span of sythesizer soundscapes ranging from keyboards, Lyricon wind synths, modular synths, digital sequencers, and organic percussion. Following one of the most requested titles on the first Disposable Music collection Sam Mcloughlin and Alison Coopers Supernatural Lancashire 2 brings a wide selection of self-made acoustic and electronic instruments to their Northern rehearsal room to blend semi-improvised melody and syncopated mechanical folk -- evoking sonic images of bygone rural industry, religious corruption, hallucinogenic medicines, scenes from classic pastoral UK horror films and cautionary European fakelore. Composing the type of instrumental music that simply does not exist outside of a theatrical or cinematic brief the self-initiated and tightly twisted music of Supernatural Lancashire comes from a genuine creative place which is rarely explored with such beguiling results within the oft blinkered parameters of modern handmade music." - Disposable Music.

Artist: SPOERRI/MASSONIX, BRUNO
Title: Hommage Au Fromage / Hollingsville
Format: LP
Label: Disposable Music
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"2013 release. Warehouse find. The ongoing Disposable Music library subscription series is a series which pools some of the best emotive, comprehensive, previously unavailable instrumental music from the unmarked archives of experimental artists within the expanding Finders Keepers family and presents it as a series of limited uniformed archival vinyl discs. With unlimited entry to the archives belonging to names like Ciani, Spoerri, Rollin, Epple, Korzynski, and Massey, Disposable Music have taken the best in unadulterated, underexposed and unattached mood music and given these homeless compositions a place, purpose and time to thrive. Hommage Au Frommage is perhaps one of the best titles to have ever been in a dusty box of a quarter inch tape reel. However, without a crumb of irony the music that appears on this session also ranks highly in Finders Keepers list of archival triumphs. An early 70s conceptual jazz pop album combining dulcimers, harps, a Jews harp and what sounds like a tap dancer instantly earns itself its own protective niche shared only by certain vintage recordings by Vladimir Cosma and The Roundtable -- but when accentuated by a heavy weight back beat and the added information that it was commissioned by the national Swiss Cheese Consortium this record commands further inspection and repeat listens. Starting with all the traits of a moody Morricone or Bruno Nicolai giallo soundtrack and breaking into a healthy cross section of modal jazz, tape manipulation, electronic grinds, Brazilian accordion, and (dare it be said) b-boy break beats, Hommage Au Frommage by Swiss electronic jazz pioneer Bruno Spoerri is a record quite unlike anything else. The music found on Graham Masseys Hollingsville record was originally created for a twelve-part radio series on Resonance 104.4 FM. The series, Hollingsville, was conceived and presented by writer Ken Hollings and would focus each week on a different aspect of mans historical relationship with technology. Informal discussions with a series of specially invited guests were accompanied by custom-built theme tunes by Massey, His approach was intentionally leaning toward the Bakelite and hot valve nostalgia of some forgotten Expo or Worlds Fair. The resulting Hollingsville soundtrack exercises Masseys authentic knowledge of original analog machines in their rawest form and triumphantly draws comparisons with the likes of Henk Badings, Oscar Sala, and Kid Balton from the pre-synth era of electric keyboards and tape manipulation. "Neptune" features Seaming To." - Disposable Music.
