Various Artists – The Line Drawings Project
LP + 7″ + Cassette + Portraits
June 20, 2014
I am very proud to present a project that I’ve been involved with for the past 2 years…Line Drawings. A joint venture showcasing the work from a community of musicians, across several mediums and labels. Put best by the artists themselves:
“Line Drawings is our attempt at creating a community of musicians that challenge each other to make deliberate music. Born from a range of frustrations, the line initially served as a divider, separating purposeful music from aimless music.”
Joe Houpert, Josh Mason, Nathan McLaughlin, Cody Yantis
Mary Lattimore, Anne Guthrie, Olli Aarni, Norm Chambers, Chris Koelle, Brad Rose
Mastered by Erich Steiger
Artwork by Chris Koelle
LP on Desire Path Recordings
The artistic refinement of the intentions and methods presented in Alice Sketches. What started as a set of exercises now becomes a fully fleshed out dialog between the four musicians in LP Format. Released in an edition of 325 on black vinyl by Desire Path Recordings.
Cassette on Digitalis Recordings
A cassette of conversations in which Houpert, Mason, McLaughlin, and Yantis consider and respond to musical and philosophical challenges and questions posed by one another. Cassette released in an edition of 50 by Digitalis Recordings.
Five 7″ Records on FET Press/Desire Path Recordings
An effort to highlight the cruciality of collaboration and community. A series of five 7” records, wherein each of the four open this sonic dialog up to additional musicians of their choosing: Olli Aarni, Norm Chambers, Anne Guthrie, Mary Lattimore, Brad Rose, and Chris Koelle. The result is an exciting and varied survey of purposeful sound. A co-release between FET Press & Desire Path Recordings, editions of 150 on black vinyl.
