verz imprint #VI002 – aural documents #1

The second release on my new label/publishing project verz imprint is now released. aural documents #1: recordings of damaged audio equipment is a ‘sonic document’, made by me with the kind guidance of Jez Riley French. Playing with the idea of field recording and the limits of recording and playback technologies, this release features recordings of broken handheld recorders, and a broken stereo amplifier. Think Seth Cooke’s no-input field recorder or Jez Riley French’s Open Input works.

aural documents #1 is available for free download, or a CD-r that comes with a unique damaged photograph (edition of 10).
