Garden Of Mirrors / Supernatural Lancashire Volume Two


2013 release. Warehouse find. The ongoing Disposable Music library subscription series is a series which pools some of the best emotive, comprehensive, previously unavailable instrumental music from the unmarked archives of experimental artists within the expanding Finders Keepers family and presents it as a series of limited uniformed archival vinyl discs. With unlimited entry to the archives belonging to names like Ciani, Spoerri, Rollin, Epple, Korzynski, and Massey, Disposable Music have taken the best in unadulterated, underexposed and unattached mood music and given these homeless compositions a place, purpose and time to thrive. The archive of Kat Epple in Miami is a well-preserved timeline that documents early analog experimental synth modules and the development of Silicon Valley music technology into the 1980s and beyond. It also includes a wealth of music produced and manufactured with her partner, synthesis, and flautist Bob Stohl. The Garden Of Mirrors is a collection of music made for ethereal planetarium performances and a series of laser shows which earned the duo of Kat and Bob the collective moniker of Emerald Web. These multi-purpose recordings remastered from rare tapes typify the duo's unique ambient sound that would win them a firm fixture in the hearts of a generation of new age devotees and proto-techno enthusiasts who operated and survived outside the parameters of the major music industry that dominated the era. Distributed by mail, during concerts, or in health food and book stores the privately pressed instrumental music of Emerald Web would also make its way in the films of astronomer Carl Sagan and other natural history educational programs. Here you will find a span of sythesizer soundscapes ranging from keyboards, Lyricon wind synths, modular synths, digital sequencers, and organic percussion. Following one of the most requested titles on the first Disposable Music collection Sam Mcloughlin and Alison Cooper's Supernatural Lancashire 2 brings a wide selection of self-made acoustic and electronic instruments to their Northern rehearsal room to blend semi-improvised melody and syncopated mechanical folk -- evoking sonic images of bygone rural industry, religious corruption, hallucinogenic medicines, scenes from classic pastoral UK horror films and cautionary European fakelore. Composing the type of instrumental music that simply does not exist outside of a theatrical or cinematic brief the self-initiated and tightly twisted music of Supernatural Lancashire comes from a genuine creative place which is rarely explored with such beguiling results within the oft blinkered parameters of modern handmade music.
