Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album
Assembled by hand, one copy at a time, in the White Pillar Workshop. A white 5" recordable disc, printed and duplicated via an Imation D20, held securely inside a white cardboard jacket with text labels on the front and back. Contains the full 45-minute FM40P album, in contrast to the digital extract available here.
NOTE: USPS as of January has increased international postage considerably, meaning a 1.5 ounce package (a single CD from our catalog) costs $10.50 to send overseas. This is unfortunate and immensely frustrating for all of us, so we'd like to encourage you to consider multiple-item orders in order to offset the larger postage cost, if you're able to do it, and as always we're willing to work with you on postage as much as we possibly can, where Bandcamp's itemized postage (and not a more accurate weight-based system) is concerned. All international orders will also ship with bonus Bandcamp download codes, chosen by us, to hopefully provide a more measured quantity of music for your financial support.

A flickering light in a smoky room, erratically glowing and fading on a dust-covered console. Readouts in lines and smaller lights convey a silent ramble, the only acknowledgement a small whirr far beneath the control top, a logic gate clicking into place and closing. At this, a careful hand reaches out and adjusts a dial, and almost immediately a cascade of wavering pulses ripples through the smoky haze like a pebble in a pond. An inhalation, a pause, a consideration and then a lateral movement, a slight nudge in another direction - not backwards, or forwards, but sideways. The sound slips and skips and catches itself just barely before tumbling over the edge of some perceived chasm, now reprogrammed and free of fear, built to float instead of fall, an efficient system defined by predeterminations. Dozing eyes peer down on the landscape of writhing oscillators, shuddering operators and hyperventilating amplifiers, like a mythic God raising an eyebrow at the curious dances of pagans, the selflessness of machines, only ever aching for the hands and whims of their makers, now subverted with will and not knowing what to do with themselves.
