"Beautiful picture disc LP featuring two full-color reproductions of visual works by Jim Haynes and two new side-long solo compositions. The ideal companion piece to Jim Haynes' masterful album, Telegraphy by the Sea. 'Eraldus' and 'Eravaldus' are both shadowy concoctions built from agitated objects and amplified spaces (a lighthouse, some high-tension wires driven by wind, a very large pile of sand, etc.). These are subtly manipulated field recordings, rusted to perfection and fine-tuned into scraping and humming machinations. The artwork comes from two corroded photographs, one of which was created especially for this LP. Haynes has worked with this process for almost 15 years and, here, the resulting images are as beautiful and mysterious as the audio is nuanced and evocative. In addition to his solo work, Jim Haynes has participated in a number of fruitful collaborations over the years with Loren Chasse (as Coelacanth), Keith Evans, Steven Stapleton/Nurse With Wound, and irr. app. (ext.)/M.S. Waldron. He currently resides in San Francisco." This picture disc LP has been released in an edition of 260 copies.
