CORY STRAND and SHADOWPIERCER "A DREAM OF DARK AND TERRIBLE THINGS" 2XC40 SET (AOW 433)
The set is split into two parts: the first cassette, "The Dark," is a split cassette, with one track each from both myself and Shadowpiercer. The second cassette, "The Terrible," presents two pieces Dakota and I created together in collaboration. The collaborative tracks are so dense with sound that I can't even tell who did what anymore; Dakota and I traded tracks back and forth, adding parts and manipulating sounds until we both felt the tracks were exactly what they should be.
The collaborative aspect of this release extends to its artwork and design as well. One cassette is designed by Dakota, the other by me. We wanted the work to reflect our individual aesthetics, as well as showcase the similarities in our approaches. The set is then wrapped in an OBI strip that utilizes the psychedelic pattern that links Eraserhead to the world of Twin Peaks. It's a gorgeous set.
An enormous amount of time, work, and collaboration went into the realization of this set. It really is one of the best AOW releases, and I am super proud of it.
Released in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies. Deluxe presentation, with both cassettes having exterior and interior artwork. $25 ppd. in the United States, $38 rest of world.
