With the hope of being able to bypass the traditional commercial aspects of a recording label TRANS>PARENT RADIATION was formed in 2005 as a web-based sub-label of bremsstrahlung recordings. The releases are made available for free download for a period of time and then taken down and released as limited edition CDRs.
We are please to announce our first physical CDR.
Utilizing source material taken from found reel to reel recordings of Icelandic a capella lament songs made in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s 10 sound artists interpret these haunting sounds in their compositions. A CD LP by Akira Rabelais based on this source material can be found at Samadhi Sound. Reworkers include Fennesz, Kit Clayton, Taylor Deupree, Steve Roden, Stephen Mathieu, I8U and others.
The packaging includes a self-latching CD case created from a custom die-cut and the cover is hand stamped. It is a limited edition of 100 and will not be reissued. The CDRs themselves are labeled via the heat transfer process rather than inkjet printing to ensure text durability. The CDRs are silver on both sides. To view packaging click here
