RABELAIS, AKIRA - SPELLEWAUERYNSHERDE (LP)


repress in gold vinyl "A first ever vinyl edition of Spellwauerynsherde, arguably one of the 21st century's most enigmatic and haunting albums, presaging contemporary obsessions with processed vocals in a deeply uncanny manner, enduring to resonate with up-to-the-moment music from Kara-Lis Coverdale to Visionist or John T. Gast as much as the record's distant roots in the seminal works of 12th century German mystic and composer Hildegard von Bingen, and the writings of John Milton, among others. It's quite honestly one of the most beautiful albums we've come across since we opened our doors back in 1998. It was originally issued on CD via David Sylvian's Samadhisound in 2004 and comprises a suite of seven medieval choral pieces which have been sublimated and recomposed via Rabelais' self-built Argeïphontes Lyre software. The result is an album we've returned to repeatedly since its release and we've felt it's always been crying out for a vinyl issue." (label info)
