Artist: LESCALLEET, JASON
Title: Pilgrim
Format: Picture Disc LP/CD
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $36.00
"An audio documentation of this electronics-and-tape artists coming to terms with the death of his father. The LP documents a performance JASON LESCALEET gave after discovering his father had terminal cancer; its floor-rattling flux of abrasive, low tones invokes the purr of a Chevys engine Lescalleets father discusses in a letter reproduced on the record jacket. A snippet of the final conversation he had with his father is buried in a heat-haze of tape hiss and air conditioner hum. The CD further extrapolates on Lescalleets fathers email; its 74 minutes move from dreamlike bell tones, through abraded, metallic hum, escalating into fierce, brutalizing waves of noise which then cut to a recording of Lescalleets daughter singing the Irish folk song "Molly Malone" at her grandfathers request. The book in which the CD is mounted has plenty more text and images. If you arent staggered by The Pilgrim, theres something wrong with you."

Title: Fantasy and Electricity b/w Dictaphone Music/Organ Music
Format: 7"
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Jason Lescalleet has been a monolithic presence in underground culture for nigh on 15 years. Here towers a man who has steadily advanced a music of great focus and originality. A man whose craft is born from that which others pronounce dead. Jason Lescalleet stands at the intersection where musique concrète, power electronics, tape composition and minimalism touch. His is a voice that is heard on the world stage. That is recognized and described. Through his recorded work and in live performance Jason has known the company of such great men as Joe Colley, John Hudak, Phill Niblock and Greg Kelley, to name but few. His art has found publication on such revered imprints as RRR, Erstwhile and his own Glistening Labs. And it is with no small pride that Kye now adds itself to the list. Fantasy and Electricity is Jason at his most forward-facing. A shimmering futuristic stomper pried from the ballrooms of Cologne, whilst Dictophone Music/Organ Music offers two miniature studies, both rich in granular detail. Fantasy and Electricity arrives in one of three sleeve designs each sporting original photography by Jason, in an edition of only 100 copies. For the fortunate few the fantasy is about to become a reality." - KYE.

Title: Much To My Demise
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Kye is proud to present Much To My Demise, the brand new solo LP by Jason Lescalleet. Since establishing himself as a preeminent voice in contemporary electro-acoustic study, Jason Lescalleet has, through his solo work and in collaboration, exploded the notion of what is possible within the realm of tape-based music. His recorded catalog acknowledges a diversity of application, from lo-fi reel-to-reel soundscaping and work for hand-held cassette machines, on through to digital sampling and computer generated composition. Lescalleets live actions further expand his ouevre to include work with video, dance, performance art and multi-media concerns. In recent years Lescalleets work has done much to explore the theme of loss and decay as sound - Another Example Of Parkinsons Law (2001), Ineinandergreifen and Untitled (from Mattresslessness) (2002) and The Pilgrim (2006) all hold the concept of senescence at heart. Much To My Demise carries the motif of decomposition further still. Recorded and constructed solely with analog sources, Much To My Demise showcases the result of a three month process in which pre-recorded reels of tape were transported outdoors, buried in soil and encouraged to corrode. The reels were then excavated, and their resultant signals transferred and edited to form an apparitional triptych of faded gesture and mood. Much To My Demise shows Lescalleet at a new creative peak, crafting a music that is equal parts comforting and haunting, and allowing us access to secret world of sound hidden in plain sight. Expertly mastered at Glistening Labs, Berwick, ME, Much To My Demise arrives in a Lescalleet designed monochromatic reverse board sleeve, with card stock insert, on white vinyl, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.
