"The idea which preoccupies us in this series, is to create sound objects, abstract in their appearance, with musicians who are, in most cases, plastic artists too. The border between music and plastic arts is thinner than ever before. This is what we will try to explore for the time being. On this first volume you will find tracks from Janek Schaeffer, Main:Robert Hampson, Christophe Charles, Stephen Vitiello and Kurt Ralske. Janek Schaeffer is based in London as architect and musician. After his Above Buildings, he worked with Robert Hampson on a project called Comae.
