17-minute EP recording, based on David Jackman source recordings. Z'EV writes: "Long long ago and far far away... holiday season 1999 & I was in London, & my dear friend Barbara took me to dinner at the house of her friend Olivia -- round the corner & down the block & Olivia had invited her friend David Jackman (aka Organum) there also -- and so we met. Fast forward... it's July 2003 & I'm in London again & will be here for a while so I see if I can hook up w/ Mr. Jackman again. Thus begins a search for the man himself -- thanks here to Brainwashed & Robot Records for facilitating this flow of info -- so we meet one Sunday afternoon in the hottest summer London has ever seen at the Crown & Greyhound for a bit of a chat. The next day Mr. Jackman is going into the studio to record some source for a new series of compositions & invites me by. There am I bright & early (but certainly not bushytailed) at 11 am in the morn (just about the middle of the night for me actually). But anyway. During the some breaks in his process we retire to a most delightful garden behind the studio & chit & chat & get around to a major congruence -- ie, our hearing -- or, in fact, our various lacks of it to be precise and go onto getting into details regarding the intricacies of our varying degrees of tinnitus. That was the impetus behind David offering to give me a copy of the session to dirty my hands w/ -- as I did. Anyway -- one treatment led to another & David came by for dinner & I played him some early results & it seems he was enthused. He came by for dinner again & he heard the initial 4 treatments & so began the talks about this actually becoming a collaborative project that would release product." Limited stock.
Ten Catastrophes in the History of the World and of Music

"1991 Dusseldorfer stuff for rivetheads and foundsound fans. Let's see: we have guard dogs, a pack of Canadian timber wolves living at the zoo, a propjet taxiing [my guess is a Fokker 50], ukelele, a bit of sound for everyone.Lufthunger means hunger for air (asphyxia), and the cd is essentially a symphony summarizing 650 million years of extinctions and other catastrophes. Ordovician and Jurassic are two of my favorite tracks, the latter featuring the timber wolves.This is good late-at-night contemplation stuff, a sound texture best explored as a solitary experience in a darkened room. I am at a bit of a loss to come up with comparisons. The first track seems to allude to Ralph Vaughn-Williams London Symphony. On a mood level, it resembles some of the best of Jeff Greinke; however, Jeff rarely uses found sounds. Fans of Sweden's Lustmord might also enjoy Lufthunger. Those of us who love the sounds of airports and railyards will most certainly already own this cd."
