    Dear Friends,
    I apologize for the promotional email, but I thought this community
    might enjoy this max/msp-soaked compilation.
    We're extremely excited to announce the web release of a really
    special LuvSound compilation. This release represents a number of
    firsts for us. It's our first compilation, our first release as a
    democracy of two, and it will be accompanied in a few short weeks by
    our first CDR edition. Luv011 has been exceeding all of our
    expectations splendidly from the start. We have a really stellar
    lineup, with contributions from OPN, Rain Cloud, Mattin, Effacer,
    Tsukimono, Sleeps in Oysters, Cremaster, Gregg Kowalsky, Bryan Teoh,
    Jeph Jerman, Muninn, Nomad Palace, Implex Grace, AllThatFall, Inlets,
    Ingrid, Ryan Francesconi, and Bryan Teoh.
    The entire disc has been loveingly mastered by John McCaig (Effacer)
    at Panic Studios in Washington, and the cover art was carefully
    crafted by Myer Nore and us.
    Today, we've uploaded the online and free version of this compilation,
    featuring a web exclusive track by Bryan Teoh. Thanks to archive.org,
    you can download the comp in three formats: lossless FLAC, forward
    thinking OGG, and ubiquitous MP3.
    In a few weeks, we'll be offering the CDR edition of the compilation.
    This edition will feature beautiful packaging and a lovely poster by
    Justine Reimnitz, an album-only drone track by Bryan Teoh, and a nice
    LuvSound button. We won't be selling it, however. If you would like a
    copy, you have to send us evidence of a contribution you have recently
    made to your local community - artistic or otherwise. Write a book and
    droplift it into your library collection. Host a free noise potluck
    behind city hall. Publish a zine. Sew a shirt and hand it to a
    stranger. Above all: produce. Production is the lever of resistance
    and progress. If you send us a photo of your event, a copy of your
    zine, or a story about what you've done, we'll mail you a copy of the
    compilation as soon as it is released.
    In the meantime, please download, have a listen, burn, share, and discuss.
    Your pals,
    Erik and Kev

      Thanks Erik! Can't wait to hear the rest of this, but I can assure everybody
      that the Implex Grace track is stellar!
