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.
Erik and Kev
