* edition of 77 copies * Atavist is a limited edition handmade record. The record is constructed from wood glue poured over and then dried on top of a master record. Atavist is a unique listening experience where the medium itself directly affects the sound and composition of the record. As a result, Atavist creates an auditory landscape that has been eroded by time. An ancestral recollection discovered in an unremembered closet. A whispered voice emerging from a forlorn past. -Leicht
