"Tom Recchion's eagerly awaited new LP and his first solo album in six years. Proscenium is a subtle and remarkably controlled collection of atmospheres. The air of mystery, deliberate pacing, the deep tones and unidentified sounds of Recchion's 2006 album Sweetly Doing Nothing have been explored even further here. It's a logical development but the results are unexpected and strikingly original, sounding wholly unfamiliar and yet like no one's but Tom Recchion's. Proscenium's six pieces mostly began life as music for puppeteer Janie Geiser's play Invisible Glass, an adaptation of Poe's William Wilson. The play's intricate beauty and the story's moody confusion have been perfectly mirrored and expanded on by Recchion who used that inspiration as a leaping off point for Proscenium's rich and surprising compositions. Tom Recchion has been a sound and visual artist/composer/art director and graphic designer in California since the 1970s. He is the co-creator of the legendary Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS) and has collaborated with David Toop, Christian Marclay, Oren Ambarchi, Keiji Haino, and Max Eastley, among many others. Proscenium consists of one 180-gram virgin vinyl LP inside a black poly-lined sleeve, plus 7" record, each with five-color labels, housed in a full-color gatefold jacket."
