Your Voice In Pieces
Our new Lifelines CD Edition features a glass mastered compact disc on a super heavyweight, matte printed, colour-core card sleeve with accompanying heavyweight, recycled, matte printed four-panel artwork insert, all sealed within a wax paper bag with a resealable two-tone SR27 sticker. Hand assembled with care at Slowcraft Studio this is perhaps our most elegant packaging presentation to date.
Designed by James Murray with Artwork by Grant Gard.
Landtitles arrives on Slowcraft with Your Voice In Pieces, a super soulful collection of minimal electroacoustic music derived from cassette and reel-to-reel loops of synthesizer, organelle, guitar, melodica, dulcimer, piano, contact microphone and field recordings.
These organic, free-flowing sounds were subjected to extensive processing in Argeïphontes Lyre and Reaper, carefully collaged, selectively sequenced and are now warmly commended to the listener alongside the artist’s own arresting analogue photography.
That a work of such serene calm and unhurried focus can blossom from so broad a process and range of sources is testament to the judgement and restraint of composer, photographer and Vancouver Island resident Grant Gard. These are slow sounds for quiet moments, spacious modern melodies with real heart and soul, the perfect soundtrack to stopping the clocks and watching plants grow.
