------------------------------------------------

New release from London composer, Theo Alexander.

'Points of Decay', is an album of deconstructed piano pieces that have been manipulated and re-spliced through a series of tape loops. Each piece makes use of a recording technique that runs a single recording through a seccession of different mediums, to achieve a heavily degraded sound that is unfamiliar to most piano recordings.

As each layer reveals or obscures another, textures are heard that would not otherwise be possible without the experimental studio techniques that drove production and writing respectively.

A major inspiration for album was the portrayal of memory in Samuel Beckett's 'Krapp's Last Tape'. (The same approach to recording is used as a staple of every live set, too. )

The new album is available as a highly limited cassette tape, with download code and insert.

Q: Why is this cassette release more expensive than cassette releases past?

A: A combination of manufacturing and postage increases that are out of our hands, we have resisted rising our prices for the last 6 months but at this stage we have no choice but accept this increase. Please note that all our prices continue to include postage in order to offer the best combined rate.
