LISTENING CENTER Cycles/Other Phenomena UK LP GPS/Deep Distance
Limired to 500 Worldwide. Brand new 15 track 2015 Listening Center- Cycles/Other Phenomena white vinyl LP on GPS/Deep Distance DD34. A synth LP!
The second of Mays’ new Deep Distance releases sees a more then welcome airing to the magnificent Listening Center “Cycles/Other Phenomena” LP. Previously released as a cassette only full length on NYC based, Danish music / design collective “This is Care of…” and following 45s on Ghost Box here.
The Listening Center is the alias of drummer and electronic musician David Mason. “Drawing primarily from influences such as the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, lost film/TV soundtracks, and Kosmische Musik, Listening Center presents a patchwork of imagined pasts/futures, in which the listener can make his or her way through an undergrowth of dream-like melodies and electronic sound palettes which have the effect of being at one point reassuring, then unsettling.
Recorded exclusively using analogue synth technology (and the occasional tape manipulation), in live performance and recording, Listening Center keeps an eye and an ear on the spectra of alternative pasts and futures.”
A wonderful LP released as a limited pressing of 300 on white vinyl which will no doubt disappear in rapid fashion. Fabulous stuff, be quick!
