Title: Die Hennen Zahne
Format: 3" CD
Label: Die Stadt
Country: Germany
Price: $14.00
"A four track mini CD combining the never released two 10"s Maus (DS57) and Die Hennen Zähne (DS66). Die Hennen Zähne opens with Die Kralle, actually a David Jackman track from his archive recorded in the early 1980s. Next is the title track Die Hennen Zähne, a joyful noise not unlike some of the TNB/Organum material including the sound of broken glass and Tibetan horns, best to be experienced LOUD. Maus is the centre piece of this mini album and typical old school Organum. The album closes with the more quiet and haunting Kazi, a live improvisation featuring collaborators Michael Prime and Emma OBong. Digipack. 600 copies. Total playing time: 18:18 min." - Die Stadt.

Title: Sanctus
Format: CD
Label: Die Stadt
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"The first album in a trilogy of new material, Sanctus represents the new architecture of the Organum sound. Recorded utilizing an implicit graphic score, the album is comprised of four discrete parts, each a variant of the others. These are not parts as in a movement or continuation of the composition, but rather four distinct audio canvases that represent a continuum of the elements at large. Composed in the spirit of the early Organum material, David Jackman has resurrected the droned-based, percussive turbulence of earlier years with a distinct new form of compositional systems. These new systems are scored for grand piano, Hammond organ, tower bell, and gong. While each element retains its distinct acoustic quality, the whole of each piece resonates the art of its totality. The results convey an ecstatic sense of presence, vast expanse, and, ultimately, infinitude." - Die Stadt.

Title: Vacant Lights/Rara Avis
Format: Double CD
Label: Die Stadt
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"Jochen Schwarz / Die Stadt is very delighted to announce the re-release of Vacant Lights one of his all time favourite works by David Jackman, in combination with a second CD comprising of five unreleased or hard to find tracks entitled Rara Avis. David Jackman, active since the late sixties as a member of The Scratch Orchestra and later with many solo works and under the name Organum with changing line-ups, was supported on these recordings by some of the main collaborators during this Organum phase: Dinah Jane Row, Jim ORourke, Eddie Prevost (AMM), Christoph Heemann (H.N.A.S.), Robert Hampson (Main) as players and Steven Stapleton (NWW) and Peter McGhee in the studio. Most of the recordings on these two CDs show the more contemplative side of the Organum sound, the main characteristic being Jackmans playing of various types of bamboo flutes some of which were actually made by David Jackman. Edition of 600 copies in 4panel full color digisleeve." - Die Stadt.

Title: Valentin
Format: 7"
Label: Equation
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"233 numbered copies. Heavy matte picture sleeve plus matching card insert (both full CMYK). First vinyl release by Organum in over 7 years. It is hard to underestimate the importance and significance of Organum. David Jackman (the force behind the project) wishes the audio to speak for itself and prefers not to attempt to describe the contents of this release. However, it is worthy to note that the greatest possible care was made to every aspect of this release -- which was mastered at Prairie Cat Mastering, who provided the most clear and dynamic audio possible. A release worthy of inclusion in the extensive discography of Organum." -Equation

Label: Matchless

Title: Ikon
Format: CD
Label: Robot
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Robot Records (in association with Siren Records, Tokyo) is very pleased to announce the re-release of the Organum Ikon EP in the digital domain. Appearing only for a short time as a small edition cassette on Aeroplane (1987), and then later as a 12" EP (1989) on Christoph Heemanns Dom Bartwuchs label, Ikon proved to be a monumental achievement in the Organum sound. Within the five compositions, Jackman combined self-made woodwind instruments along with vast droning environments to create spacious, haunting landscapes. These melodic undercurrents were paired with voice, percussive streams, and an assortment of textural elements that convey an incredibly eerie yet beautiful sense of space. Remastered and including an alternate mix of the title track, Ikon is an awesome document of one of David Jackmans most important works." - Robot.

Title: Sanctus
Format: CD
Label: Robot
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2006 release. "The first album in a mid-2000s trilogy, followed by Amen (2006) and Omega (2007), Sanctus represents the new architecture of the Organum sound. Recorded utilizing an implicit graphic score, the album comprises four discrete parts, each a variant of the others. These are not parts as in a movement or continuation of the composition, but rather four distinct audio canvases that represent a continuum of the elements at large.

Title: Volume One
Format: CD
Label: Robot
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
“1998 release. The first of two CD anthologies of the Organum/David Jackman back catalog, preceding Volume Two (ROBOT 018CD). The series is not exclusively limited to reissuing early vinyl releases in their entirety, but is rather a "collection" series that also includes alternate mixes as well as previously unreleased material. Remastered for truly maximum fidelity. Volume One includes material culled from the Tower of Silence and In Extremis 12"s (both originally released on L.A.Y.L.A.H. Antirecords in 1985). These pieces easily represent the raw beauty and intensity of the early Organum sound. Also included is Rasa (originally featured on the United Dairies split LP with Nurse with Wound, 1986), which offers a bizarre combination of female voice and dense droning space. This piece has been regarded as the most unusual of all of Jackmans output to date.” - Robot.

Title: Volume Two
Format: CD
Label: Robot
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
“2000 release. The second of two CD anthologies of the Organum/David Jackman back catalog, following Volume One (ROBOT 017CD). The series is not exclusively limited to reissuing early vinyl releases in their entirety, but is rather a "collection" series that also includes alternate mixes as well as previously unreleased material. Meticulously mastered for truly maximum fidelity, Volume Two includes material primarily culled from the In Extremis and Horii sessions (12" titles originally released on L.A.Y.L.A.H. Antirecords, in 1985 and 86 respectively). Track one, "Valley of Worms," includes the complete B-side (album version) of In Extremis, which features Jackmans collaborative work with The New Blockaders. This 20-minute piece is a massive eruption of relentless, burrowing atmospheres that are as often disturbing as they are engaging. Track two, "Horii," is an alternate version (differing from the 12" release) that features Jackmans collaboration with Andrew Chalk. At over 12 minutes, this piece offers a very bizarre mélange of sputtering bowed percussion, homemade woodwinds, and voice. Track three, "Ich Reiste Weit Und Verweilte Fur Einigezeit In Tring," is a previously unreleased work from 1989 that captures many of the (purely acoustic) compositional elements associated with the early L.A.Y.L.A.H. sessions. As with Volume One, these early dynamic compositions easily represent the raw beauty and intensity of the early Organum sound.” - Robot.
