Artist: BRUSH, LEIF
Title: Stitched Phenomena
Format: Cass
Label: Pentiments
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
Edition of 100. “Leif Brush (b. 1932) is a pioneering sound artist who for over five decades has built something of a vast labyrinth of an artistic presence, in a certain sense having existed on the fringes of the more esoteric strands of early sound practices. During his time as a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the late 60s, Brush explored large scale installations that would often utilize the citys landscape as a platform for steel-strand based sounding constructs. After going on to become a professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth, he began to expand upon his ever-evolving concept of the “terrain instrument”, generally defined as a physical construct situated in nature that would harness the forces and vibrations of the earth in order to generate various types of sonic phenomena, often via the activation of triggers and sensors.

Stitched Phenomena contains the entirety of Brushs 2004 flagship composition “Earth Star Songs”, a 47 minute long “stitching” of sounds and recordings taken from an array of his analog constructs and terrain instruments spanning decades, paired with recordings produced by Jerry Chamkis Kosmophone. The result is an inexhaustibly complex amalgamation of hard-edged terrestrial and tactile phenomena contrasted by cosmically sourced retro-futuristic synth interjections. Prior to now, this piece had only ever existed on the internet in the form of low quality mp3s during the earlier days of netlabels. This issue marks its first ever physical release in proper form, rescued in full quality from its original master tape. In an edition of 100 with updated 2017 cover art by Brush himself.” - Pentiments.

Title: Stitching in Process: Windmixed Data
Format: Double LP
Label: Pentiments
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"Pentiments continues its collaboration with the legendarily enigmatic American sound art pioneer Leif Brush, this time with an extensive double LP release representing the most comprehensive collection of his recorded work to date. In plumbing the depths of his archives, weve unearthed and gathered a great breadth of his decades-long sonic research, spanning from his early work as a grad student to various lecture documents from his eventual tenure at UMD, with many curious stops and experiments in between. “Stitching in Process: Windmixed Data” brings these fragments together with a somewhat new perspective on their trajectory—pieces are reconsidered, refreshed, and given a new sense of continuity, aided additionally by the expert mastering of Giuseppe Ielasi. Most importantly, this release marks the first commercially available compendium of Leifs greater body of work in his 85 years of life, and for those keen on the early exploration of sound and its potentials, it is a revelation that is long overdue. In an edition of 200 with high gloss gatefold sleeve featuring the photo work of Gloria DeFilipps Brush." - Pentiments. Edition of 200 copies.
