spectral analysis loops : ingenting kollektiva fragments of night shipping now

2 spectral analysis loops for our new release *

finally available, after two years in the making (and three more months in limbo) : ingenting kollektiva's fragments of night, from oiseaux invisibles.

ingenting kollektiva is an homage to the films of ingmar bergman and sven nykvist.

the kollektiva recordings are meditations on the quality of light, sound, and atmosphere, as well as realizations of the various forms of "nothingness" captured by these swedish 2 masters.

christmas of 2009, the kollektiva found themselves surrounded with many recordings from the year 1969, including :

miles davis & teo macero's in a silent way, and bitches brew
john surman's way back when, and how many clouds can you see?, and extrapolation (with john mclauglin)
bert jansch's birthday blues
vashti bunyan's just another diamond day (recorded december 1969)
fairport convention's unhalfbricking
jan garbarek & terje rypdal's esoteric circle
king crimson's in the court of the crimson king
scott walker's scott walker 4
holger czukay's canaxis
(plus many more).

with this in mind, the kollektiva recorded some songs in the lightowlers' barn during a rainstorm, and later added recordings from northern california and los angeles. the editing process then became something similar to macero's work for miles davis.

the recording has been issued as a long play record with a gatefold sleeve and photographs by tarrl lightowler.

thanks so much to taylor deupree for making this such a beautiful recording.

* spectral analysis loops : a collaboration between tarrl lightowler, matthew swiezynski and ingenting kollektiva : a forthcoming cd/dvd by invisible birds with extended versions from fragments of night

(also available from invisible birds is lind, raud, aastaajad, a memory entry coming soon)
