Lau Nau and Matti have worked together for many years on a variety of projects. With this new album, Laura’s exceedingly delicate touch with her quietly twinkling and gently humming electronic treatments blend seamlessly with Matti’s softly echoed repetitions on the piano, leading to an overall feeling of peaceful quiet, and timeless mystery.
As usual at the Time Released Sound label no expense was spared here, and this lovely music comes in three distinct physical versions: Standard 180g LP, Limited edition Deluxe LP and CD.

On the reverse side of each jacket is an assembled collage of sorts, also loosely taped and attached (so be very careful please!), of original hand written papers and diagrams, blueprints, transparencies, schematics, punch cards and artwork designs created by and belonging to Mr. Herrick. These have been somewhat modified by me with hand stamping etc as well. Inside the record jacket comes the 180gm “Icebreaker” colored vinyl in its inner black poly lined sleeve. Attached to each inner sleeve is a colorful hand printed textual picture insert with track titles and credits, and along with the record in the jacket comes a stapled bunch of 3-4 other original technical papers belonging to and written/drawn by my father. Finally…each record jacket is carefully bound with a length of copper electrical wire, and then comes in its own outer poly sleeve.
My father was also a huge lover of music as well as of electronic “signals” in general…I think he would have no doubt appreciated this album greatly! Thanks to Laura and Matti for humoring my sentiments!
As usual no two copies of this version are alike, and the one that you receive may or may not match the copies pictured.
