Crikey, it's been a busy one this week! Not only is the P Jørgensen cd
'To' now on sale, but i'm also taking pre-orders on the upcoming Celer
7” 'Mane Blooms'.LP029 – Celer – Mane Blooms 7”
‘Mane Blooms’ is the very first vinyl release by Celer, the husband and
wife duo Will Long and Danielle Baquet-Long
Seen by Celer as an 'outdoor' companion piece to ‘Brittle’, the duo’s
album recently released on Low Point, the music on ‘Mane Blooms’ was
created by multiple layers of cello and piano, which were then processed
and played back at differing speeds. Also contained within the tracks
are field recordings taken whilst Dani rode horses along the Californian
coastline, a weekly pursuit that acted as a form of self-therapy and
With the music composed specifically with the vinyl medium in mind, the
two sides of the record act as a mirror image. For the B side, Celer
approached the music of the first track in reverse, inverting the
structure and musical motifs established within the first piece.
Altering the playback speed of the vinyl brings previously hidden
textures to the fore, providing each of the tracks with a new identity
and a different reflection of memory.
To listen to sound samples and to pre-order a copy, please head to http://www.low-point.com/LP029.html

October 09.Improvements to the Low Point web site;
I've made (what I hope are) a couple of improvements to the Low Point
website. The first is that a Paypal shopping cart is now in operation,
making it a lot easier to make multiple purchases.
It is now also be possible to preview releases in their entirety via
Sound Cloud streaming audio. This is something that I intend to roll-out
for the entire Low Point catalogue (including out of print releases)
within the next couple of months, though the three most recent releases
can be previewed right now.
Feel free to send me other suggestions!Coming Soon on Low Point;
Tim Catlin & Machinefabriek – 'Glisten' cd
Gareth Hardwick – 'Half Light' Business card cdr
Kogumaza – 7” single
Spartak – 'Verona' cd
That's it for now, have a good week!
