The second release in the Improvisational Architecture series is available: To the Cooling Tower, Satsop by Christopher DeLaurenti. To the Cooling Tower, Satsop at base, is a field recording made in the tunnels of an abandoned nuclear power plant. It conveys an aural phenomena that one typically experiences on a personal level. Curious, mesmerizing and a bit eerie, DeLaurenti’s interactions structure this phonography as a composition of place.
The CD release is a physical edition of 250. The cover is a letter press replication of a ball point pen drawing Robert Lansden and pressed at Middlepress in Brooklyn. The full size original work instills a sense of vertigo. When translated in letterpress the effect is transferred to the fingertips and synthesized differently. Available from Pogus Productions.
