Artist: MCCANN, SEAN
Title: The Capital
Format: LP
Label: Aguirre
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"2011 release. Second vinyl release The Capital by rising drone star Sean McCann. These recordings prove -- once again -- his ability to keep his stretched-out and richly-textured ambient drones right on track. The A-side opens with synth spirals and ecstatic sounds -- theres no going back now. The B-side is full of violin explorations and lo-fi field recordings. This is an amazing effort by one of Earths most promising musicians." -Aguirre.

Artist: MCCANN, SEAN
Title: A Castle Popping/Tub of Green Ink
Format: LP+CDR
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
A collection of recordings from 2013 & 2014. This is the first solo release by Sean since Music for Private Ensemble. A display of six recent pieces, not to be taken as a formal ‘album, but whatever floats your boat!
The first side holds abstract vocal-based work. Recorded in hotel rooms during business trips in Las Vegas and Spain, and later manipulated on a broken reel to reel machine. The second side is serene; featuring a recording of McCanns first formal composition for quartet, Victorian Wind, performed by the Thin Edge New Music Collective. The LP concludes with two works for piano, recorded and edited at home in Pasadena, CA.
Edition of 150 hand-numbered LPs. Supplemental full-length CDr "Tub of Deep Green Ink”" - Recital.

Title: Music For Private Ensemble
Format: LP
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Music For Private Ensemble is Sean McCanns first new solo album since 2011s The Capital. Demonstrating a more serious study of orchestration and timbre than his previous work; it is a big step forward. The four arrangements presented here shy away from the use of synthesizers and effects processing – instead relying on voicing and movement to actuate the albums sentiments. Inspired by the grandiosity of John Adams, the concerned somberness of Gavin Bryars, and the guttural tape work of Fluxus artists.
Private Ensemble was written, recorded, and laboriously edited over the course of 17 months, composed both traditionally as well as through the clustering and organization of improvisations. McCann played violin, viola, cello, flute, piano, glockenspiel, and percussion. He was forced to notate samples of bassoon, french horn, and timpani, as those were not available resources at the time.
Taking multi-tracking to extremes, many of the pieces surpass 100 layers of instruments. However this structural depth does not lead to chaos; no sound on Private Ensemble is unintentional. The objective with the ambitious multi-tracking and precision editing was to achieve the sound of a full orchestra. The only other person appearing on the album is vocalist Kayla Cohen (Itasca), her layered singing is formed into a small choir to help conclude the record.
This album reveals McCanns most refined work to date, indicating the beginning of his transformation into a modern composer.” - Recital.

Title: Pacifics
Format: Book
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Pacifics is my first book. It can and should be read just one page at a time. Like a taste in your mouth, or a smell in your nose – the lines in this poem can bloom your stature. Perhaps once the words wear off, like a perfume dissipating…, you could read another page." -Sean McCann / Recital June 2016.

Artist: MCCANN, SEAN
Title: Ten Impressions for Piano & Strings
Format: LP
Label: Root Strata
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“Realized over a four-year period, Sean McCanns Ten Impressions for Piano & Springs is a document of transition and maturation. Slow-moving cloud forms over corporeal landscapes, these impressions whisper of McCanns decisive lean toward classical and avant-garde musics, culminating in 2013s Music for Private Ensemble, released on his own imprint, Recital. Less a final statement on ambient music, more a meditation on change, discovery and process. LP includes download code.” - Root Strata.
