LOW STOCK LEVEL
This is a collection of material recorded after the release of Sign (1993), the last of the Clock DVA releases on the Italian label Contempo. Produced and composed by Adi Newton throughout 1994/1995 in Florence and Milan during a transitional period in the chronology of DVA. Due to circumstantial events, these recordings remained primary bases for later development, intended as an instrumental companion album to Sign, similar in concept to the instrumental album Digital Soundtracks (1992). Newton: "I felt that these recordings although unfinished, represented a point in time that contained a series of emotions and paradigms that these recordings capture. Coming back to them after more than a decade I did not want to try and re-work them, as those ideas and feelings have now developed into something new, and rather than letting them remain in obscurity, it would be more positive to release them in their original form. The drawings reveal the core, the latent intentions of form. These recordings represent some of the darker elements of the NASA/Mercury program, which in recent years has become increasingly more exposed." Included in the booklet is the extended text from Sign that was referenced in the original sleevenotes along with a number of original artworks that are based on conceptual elements contained within the tracks. All tracks composed and produced by Adi Newton. DVD-sized packaging.
