insanely effort-oriented release from timo “af ursin” van luijk, consisting of an lp record (covering five new pieces) housed inside an individually hand-made lp sleeve (these are taped together at the seams, again, one-at-a-time) each with a different “vintage” photo glued into the gatefold, signed by timo, with the whole package housed in a “vintage dust jacket” (these look / feel like they’ve been in the smoke-filled attic of a parisian pathe-marconi shop since about 1964) completing the “not from this era” vibe ...
the music is something of a departure for timo ; instead of a suite of drone-oriented string pieces, this appears to be an electro-acoustic construct, utilizing recordings of chamber-music, ghostly vapor-trails of distant voices, and radio / telemetry noises to evoke a feeling akin to “electronic voice phenomena” ...
sure, the edition is a bit of collectro-bait (sic) borrowed from his recent dendoshi “band-mate” raymond dijkstra, but i’ll forgive / forget given that each copy obviously took a hell of a lot of time / effort to produce ...MIMAROGLU
