I'm entering this new cycle of life, have been on this crazy journey transition for the past 9-12 months. As part of this I need to jump out of a metaphorical plane, and to do so I need to convert some 7" s back into cash-money.
If you want one of these wild little Pale Rabbits artifacts then now is the time, there are only 111 total and it's unlikely they'll be re-pressed. Signed, and made/created to the absolute limit of my abilities, and the limits of the medium. It starts to flake out at the end because its longer than supposed to fit on a record, by design to fit the story arc. An exercise in madness that cost far to much to make sense, but I did it anyway because that's what the music needed, to be on a record. It took years but I did it.
A grimy jazz-noir electronic concept / fucked up fairy-tale that pulses with discordance and bitter piano, booming bottom end meshed with double-bass, that was originally going to be part comicbook set in a dystopian future in a city that has become self-aware. With spoken word narration by an out-there Croatian writer, model, and playboy columnist, based on the storyboard i gave her, written/voiced in sections in the middle of the night while her dog panics at the tone in her voice. The noise and dirt of the track blends with the hiss and crackle of the record till it's fucking alive. This one is alive, and probably/possibly the only truly original piece of music I've ever written.
If you are going buy one then now is the time.
Pale Rabbits side A is a narrative electronic jazz noir concept piece designed to be played off 7" record, using its limitations as strengths. Side B is a piano deconstruction of the Pale Rabbits piece. Side BB works with the idea of a live-to-disc recording of jazz found in a basement many years later.
*note: Only Pale Rabbits (Preview) is recorded from the 7" - and the actual record goes pear-shaped later naturally, other tracks are 'clean' versions for your computer.
