Artist: ASTOR
Title: Lina in Nida
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“Mark Harwoods third album under his Astor moniker slips away from the obtuse atmospheres and concrete field recordings of Alcor and Inland (released on Graham Lambkins Kye label in 2012 and 2013 respectively). Lina in Nida sits more in a melodic electronic framework covering a wide range of sonic and emotional states. "The East" initiates proceedings as a proposed anthem for Britain during a potential invasion by ISIS. Things soon move into the uncomfortably claustrophobic "The Landowners," where an oblique narrative by Estonian artist Kris Lemsalu spirals into a blurred fantasy of musical roads, nocturnal wanderings, and entrapment under floorboards. The B-side relocates itself further out as "They Cling to Each Other" hovers over uncharted ketamine lows while "The Sleepwalkers" lurches around a spider-like environment. "Amusement" tackles a cosmic music, but one that hurtles itself far beyond the outer regions of the cosmos, while "5:00am" contains within the greatest sound known to mankind. As a further shift from reason, Lina in Nida is a thrilling expose of intense atmospheres, emotional states, and ecstatic physics. Recorded in a bedroom in Clapton, East London, throughout 2014 and 15. Mastered by Rashad Becker in August 2015. Matte sleeve with artwork by Mark Harwood and design by Maja Larsson. Edition of 400.” - Penultimate Press.

Title: Filtre De Réalité
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"The Filter of Reality is a machine imagined and built by Jacques Brodier - Le Havre, France. Penultimate Press is proud to publish the first ever collection of recordings by this unique French artist, researcher, writer and inventor. Between 3 and 30 MHz, radio waves have the property to travel around the Earth by bouncing on the ionosphere, which acts as an imperfect mirror, wave-agitated under the flux of suns particles. The machine explores this boundless electromagnetic ocean, where all radio broadcasts of Terran civilization mingle their voices with noise and strange signals from other places of the universe. That is how, during its odyssey through short waves, the Filter of Reality receives a wide range of this semantic noise and transposes it, so that it becomes audible for human ears. The noise captured by the antenna feeds into the Filter of Reality bearing the traces of multitudes of languages and of the events encountered. One can hear swimmers riding on huge waves, the voices of distant lands, a crowd of Babel or the archipelago of terrestrial civilisation tearing away from chaos into a reality carved out in the strange dimension of meaning. The Filter of Reality captures and distributes the ceaseless rustling of those spaces on a network of vibrating strings. This is made possible thanks to an optical modulator "played" with light and shade (also invented by Jacques Brodier). What results is a complex musical soundtrack, where the signals weave their own harmonics and rhythms. The artefacts captured and compiled for this release are at once unique, ambitious, foreign and beautiful. This is not just a record. Along with the artwork and essays this is significant snapshot of one mans endless years of research and restless experimentation. It is safe to say this is a release is quite unlike any other. Jacques Brodier Filtre De Réalité was mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs and comes in a limited edition lp of 400 copies adorned with 2 stunning full colour reproductions of Jacques Brodiers paintings and a lavish fold out 4 page insert featuring further images and two essays by Brodier, one in French and one English." - Penultimate Press.

Title: Xhos De Villemahu
Format: Double LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $46.00
"Penultimate Press present the second full length release by the acclaimed French inventor, instrument builder, musician, visual artist, researcher and writer Jacques Brodier. Following up the 2012 release Filtre De Réalité, Xhos De Villemahu expands Brodiers vision tenfold with two LPs worth of inexplicable audio recorded between 2009-2016. Operating from Le Havre, France since the 1970s, Jacques Brodier has created a uniquely personal vision that incorporates music, writings, paintings and drawings. Over the years he has amassed a large amount of material in all of these fields. The music he conjures from his self-built instrument, the Filtre De Réalité (Filter of Reality), harnesses the energies found in shortwave radio, harmonic strings, sensors, sheet metal and rotating glass spheres of sand. The resulting audio shatters time and space with voices of the deep past slamming up against a fantastic present. Frequencies dance in a whirl of frenzied excitement whilst elements of a cosmic science fiction leave a trail of neon lit bewilderment. A vast amount of writings, painting and drawings support the enormous world Brodier has constructed over the years. Xhos De Villemahu is an attempt to capture this substantial and significant world view into a complete package. Xhos De Villemahu arrives as a deluxe double LP in a gloss gatefold sleeve featuring a 32-page A4 booklet of images, essays and texts written by Brodier for the occasion. Utterly unique in vision and scope, Xhos De Villemahu is absolutely an experience unlike any other." - Penultimate Press.

Title: Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage A Richard Demarco
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage Á Richard Demarco is a previously unissued recording by Henning Christiansen from 1971. In 1970, the Richard Demarco Gallery in collaboration with the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf organized the exhibition, Strategy: Get Arts. This celebration of art from Düsseldorf was held at the Edinburgh College of Art during the Edinburgh International Festival. The title of the exhibition was a palindrome created by André Thomkins and featured works by Joseph Beuys, Claus Böhmler, George Brecht, Henning Christiansen, Robert Filliou, Dorothy Iannone, Mauricio Kagel, and Dieter Roth amongst others. Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage Á Richard Demarco was sent to Richard Demarco as a gift following the exhibition. Having returned to Denmark, Christiansen, along with sound technician Peter Sakse, created Strategygetarts, a sound collage incorporating field recordings from urban spaces, supermarkets, a boxing game, etc. The sole "musical" element is a piano motif which repeatedly punctuates the recordings. The first side moves forwards, the flip back. A reverse groove will set you straight. Opus 67 Strategygetarts A Symphony, Hommage Á Richard Demarco comes in a high-gloss sleeve, featuring two original artworks by Henning Christiansen; Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.

"Requiem of Art Fluxorum organum II Opus 50 was first issued in 1973 by Edition Schellmann alongside Schottische Symphonie with Joseph Beuys. This is the authoritative version of one of the greatest works by the late Henning Christiansen (1932-2008), Danish composer and Fluxus artist, presented with the full cooperation with the Henning Christiansen estate. 180-gram LP in spot-varnished sleeve with a four-page high-gloss booklet containing the complete score. Edition of 700." - Penultimate Press.
"In the summer of 1969 we made a collective film The Search on the heath in Jutland, Denmark. Henning Christiansen made on site field recordings for the individual scenes with Peter Sakse as sound master. The music was first time used during the performance at the festival Strategy: Gets Art exhibition organised by Richard Demarco at Edinburgh College of Art, on August 21, 1970 with Joseph Beuys and Henning Christiansen. Henning Christiansen sampled the field recording into the organ music from Eurasienstab. He gave this composition subsequently the title Requiem of Art fluxorum organum II Opus 50. That means a requiem over the role of art in the 1960s." --Ursula Reuter Christiansen, Møn, Denmark, October 20, 2015.

Title: Aurore
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
First vinyl reissue; originally released on CD in 1990 by Touch. "Through them, it is the volume of each word that becomes an “objectsculpture.” The word, the voice, the volume take shape with each other, unveiling a theatre that theatre usually ignores. In the power of voices and semantics, as well as in the severe body/mind combination, inseparable from each other, I find in Aurore a song of the bodies, indispensable to any sound values" - Henri Chopin. “Penultimate Press presents the first release in a three-part series based around the four field-recording-based works made between 1990 and 1994 by the legendary French act Étant Donnés (brothers Eric and Marc Hurtado, born 1959 and 1962 respectively in Rabat, Morocco). Aurore opens the triptych and is made from ambient sounds collected like dew from nature. The gathered sounds were then used as a sound texture for the poems strewn among the field resulting in a single entity of arresting sound and text. Aurore is focused around an alchemical fire/water battle, this water which does not wet the hands. Aurore shares some convulsive movements that establish a link with Étant Donnéss earlier works, for instance that exuding scream, worthy of the one Artaud uttered in his legendary 1947 radio program Pour en finir avec le jugement de Dieu. Eric and Marc Hurtado succeed in achieving what many sages consider to be the very purpose of magical art: to create ones own ritual and, being ones own referent, to become a vibrating point in the cosmos and be receptacle for natural energy, in the heat of the sun in an attempt to merge with the Whole. Aurore comes remastered and repackaged in a high-gloss sleeve with fully printed high-gloss inner sleeve, in a limited edition of 500 copies. It remains an extreme and beautiful sonic journey sitting outside of time.” - Penultimate Press. "Listening to Aurore, our two actors record, undoubtedly owing to the influence of the Mediterranean cradle, single umbilical cord of two great religions, the influence of both Latin and Arab worlds -- Gaelic short and long sounds can sometimes be perceived -- since their dictions are such a synthesis of several origins. Any true sound poetry is shattering, the really oral one is there in space, with the plus of the media machines, of the voices that slip through them, overwhelming them with the splendor of the bodies." - Henri Chopin.

Title: Royaume/Aimant + Aimant -
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“Run horse run Sting bee sting Fly fish fly Burn miracle burn How beautiful your eyes are when they look into the void” --Marc Hurtado. “This is the second of three reissues focusing on the works of Étant Donnés based on field recording and voice. Royaume (originally released on CD by Touch in 1991) is made up of four tracks and is a kind of purifying journey through the four elements that symbolically refers to the light evoked by the color green, an allegory of the grail and of the light-bringing angel. As to the poems, they tend to amount to their essentials, as is the case on the track "Matin," which is both Taoist and surrealistic. Aimant + Aimant - (originally released as a split CD and 10" by Danceteria in 1992) presents itself as a magical alchemical mantra based upon the force of love, the force of life. "Like true buffoons from ultra-world, Ericand Marc Hurtado succeed in achieving what many sages consider to be the very purpose of magical art: to create ones own ritual and , being ones own referent, to become a vibrating point in the cosmos and be a receptacle for natural energy, like those bright patches or that black point recurring in their magical music, real poems-paintings and irremediably aiming , like an insect caught between the circle and the cross, in the heat of the sun in an attempt to merge with the Whole." --Stéphane Duval. “Two pole like two bodies like two hearts like two magnets. The wind, the sea, the breath, the fire. Nothing more than nothing. Everything is in everything.” --Marc Hurtado.

Artist: GERNES, POUL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Penultimate Press is proud to release a unique vinyl of the only known recordings by Danish artist Poul Gernes.

Poul Gernes only ever recorded just under 20 minutes of music. His entire musical production is therefore on this LP. The recording was done on a Tandberg Recorder at Poul Gernes house in the south of Sweden in 1969. He is playing an old harmonium salvaged from a local primary school. The result is an informal quasi­-drone work, which, along with the ambient sounds and domestic interference, comes across as a snapshot of the recording itself, a sonic Polaroid. Poul Gernes (1925­-1996) was one of the central figures in Danish art life during the latter half of the twentieth century. His experimental art holds a firm place on an international level and as one of the founders of the legendary Den Eksperimenterende Kunstskole (The Experimenting Art School) he has exerted considerable influence on a whole generation of artists who make up the Danish post war avant­ garde. His wide-ranging body of work is still a source of inspiration for younger generations of artists in Denmark and abroad. This recording was initiated by John Hunov who was the chairman of Ung Dansk Kunst (Young Danish Art) an association for the presentation and publication of many Danish artists of the period. A series of cassettes were commissioned as a supply on demand service prompting Poul Gernes to instigate a musical work. The recording was done during a prolific period of creativity and lingers in the current spirit of endless possibilities. The combination of an old harmonium and a tape recorder manifests a yet untried option: why not compose music as well? A childs voice, his daughter Ulrikka, is heard making small remarks and pointing out when the needle enters the red. This audial domestic background is too included as an incidental yet natural part of the work as Poul Gernes saw no limit between art and life. Poul Gernes major musical inspirations at the time were J.S. Bach, Terry Riley and Gregorian chant. An alleged encounter with John Cage and close collaborations with, for instance, composer and Fluxus artist Henning Christiansen are likely to have encouraged the musical endeavour. During the 1960s Poul Gernes also made a large number of happenings and performances, together with amongst others Per Kirkeby and Joseph Beuys. Originally issued in a miniscule edition on cassette in 1969 this was re-issued in 1998 as a very limited edition CDR via John Nixons Document Records, Australia. This is the first vinyl issue of these recordings.

Poul Gernes comes as limited edition one sided lp of 400 copies. A beautiful etching of a Gernes painting appears on the b-side and all is packaged in a full colour sleeve retaining the nature of the recording itself. Also includes an insert with a list of Pouls hypothetical track titles." - Penultimate Press. For more information on Poul Gernes: http://www.gernes.dk

Title: Blue-Lit Half Breath
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Matthew P. Hopkinss Blue-Lit Half Breath, his second full-length for Penultimate Press, presents a curious and compelling listen that harnesses his deeply personal and paranoid vision into the ultimate beauty/horror object. Since the mid-2000s Hopkins has distinguished himself as master of multiple musical forms including bent song, freeform concrète, improvised electronics, and techno. Under his own name he has produced a most singular take on abstracted voice, feedback, field recordings, and found sounds. With Blue-Lit Half Breath Hopkins furthers his domestic inquiry into subconscious sounds with a series of vignettes that hover between hissing clunk, atmospheric creep, and improvised piano refrains. Among all this the voice of Hopkins appears throughout as a shadowy narrator delightfully disturbing the sonic play. Blue-Lit Half Breath is a late-night-oil-burning masterpiece that resides within a zone orbiting its own logic. 180-gram LP in glossy sleeve. Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.

Title: Vent
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Matthew P Hopkins has established himself as a formidable presence in the experimental circuit courtesy of a diverse range of projects including Naked on the Vagues debased rock, Half Highs blurred dreams and Four Doors take on techno. Penultimate Press is proud to reissue Hopkins second solo effort originally issued as a micro edition self released cdr. Vent proposes a Frankenstein assemblage of the awry ambience heard on the recently acclaimed Nocturnes lp merged with a more extreme take on the ketamine indie crossover of his earlier outfit, Vincent Over the Sink. Side A features four transcendental propositions bathing in perverse transitions, inhuman vocals and a singular audio perspective where spacious room recordings weave amongst crude studies in direct input. Side B extends the dichotomy of grit and beauty into more spacious planes as the hovering grace of the side long Wobbly Study is interrupted by melodies at the point where melody is visited by sound. Vent is a unique exhumation of sonics and song, the ambient and the uncanny. One which raises an eyebrow to the sky from the scratchy floorboards below." - Penultimate Press.

Artist: HOUR HOUSE
Title: Chiltern
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Conceived while wandering through the iron bark forests and gold fields of country Victoria, Australia, the official debut by Melbournes Hour House offers a musical blueprint marinated in mystery, beauty, sound, and song. Hour House is the duo of Mark Leacy and Sam Kenna, formerly of the Newcastle-based outfit Castings. Chiltern comprises individual tracks folded into two side-long suites in a unique excursion through foreign encounters, warm surrounds, and disorienting comfort. Field recordings, electronics, samples, guitars, voice, and atmospherics all contribute to form a bewitching whole. Many questions are raised: is this a soundtrack to a mental experience or an altered take on a familiar reality? Is the third section based on the sound of a basketball court? Does the fourth form a song? Where do the original Soviet science fiction soundtracks fit into all this? Is this sound or music? Simultaneously ambiguous and accessible, Chiltern is a consciousness-tickling ride unlike any other. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs. Presented in high-gloss sleeve with stunning artwork by Alice Wormald. Includes charcoal-black inner sleeve and deluxe crème insert." - Penultimate Press.

"Rabbit Eclipse is the second full-length recording from the legendary Księżyc, following their self-titled debut from 1996. The Moon never went away. The 2013 Penultimate Press reissue of Księżycs timeless debut (PP 008LP) exposed the band to a large new audience, resulting in a return to live performance and the subsequent development of new material.

2015 repress. "Penultimate Press is proud to re-issue the defining statement by Polish outfit Księżyc (Moon). Księżyc was a project from Poland, active in the 1990s. Members included Agata Harz (vocals), Katarzyna Smoluk (vocals, piano), Robert Niziński (wind instruments, keyboards), Lechosław Polak (accordion, keyboards, synthesizers) and Remigiusz Mazur-Hanaj (lyrics, tapes). The spirit of Księżyc captures early and late music with a medieval sound, rooted experiments of the 20th Century. The alchemy of these constituent parts results in a breathtaking original music, both delicate and sinister. The surreal fairy tale inspired lyrics (written by Remigiusz Mazur-Hanaj) add to the inherent beauty, sadness and madness within. Originally released on 10" vinyl on Obuh records this has been remastered by Piotr Nykiel at Nykiel Audio and cut on 12" allowing for vastly improved sound quality. An elegant reworking of the artwork introduces lyrics including English translations for the first time. Księżyc comes in a beautiful gatefold with printed inner sleeve.

The 100 drawings gathered in Dripping Junk were made over a period of five days during a recent trip to Miami FL. Lambkins eye and pen guide us through a confusion of local observation. We find ourselves transported to the opulent sands of South Beach, the strip malls of Dade County, and the many tourists spots one would expect to engage. Yet Lambkin allows us to view these sites through his own distorted lens. This is not the Miami of common expectation. Lambkin throws us headfirst in to a hallucinogenic netherworld where logic and common sense cower in the shade of the palms. A world where fantasy and reality mix effortlessly and are drank as the cocktail of choice. A world where the skunk ape is king.

"Penultimate Press present the debut recording from French outfit Pancrace. Music for pipe organ Stiehr-Mockers 1848, bird calls, baroque violin, tin whistle, boîtes à bourdons, landscape piano, motorized bow, Standuino Pi synth, microphones, hurgy toys, AM radio, church bells, uilleann pipes, and hulusi. Pancrace is an improvising quintet comprising French, British, and Austrian performers. The members include Prune Bécheau, Arden Day, Julien Desailly, Léo Maurel, and Jan Vysocky. Pancrace is also the name of the church in Dangolsheim Alsace located next to where the instrument inventor Léo Maurel lives. Maurel makes ingeniously designed instruments inspired by the hurdy gurdy. The recording emerged from a disruption of the traditional elements within the church, namely the church organ which was prepared inside out whilst the performers challenged its gregarious authority with an array of constructed and modified instruments. On Pancrace, one can hear many of these shape-shifting instruments and devices being twiddled without quite knowing which are bowed, plucked, hammered, or rubbed. The results are a maelstrom of sound and song which see-saw between the harrowing and the sublime with incredible detail to sonic content. Pancrace instigates proceedings in the confinement of an organ; a cyclops puffing its continuous and raucous breath only to be woken by instruments who, like horseflies, mischievously start tormenting proceedings with microtones and striated polyrhythms. The journey ends four sides later with the language of the birds imposing an unadorned silence on the church. Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.
