For TRS045 we are very pleased to bring you this full length album from Middlemarch... aka Dimitris Avramidis/piano and Ross Baker/electronics. A beautiful melange of melodic and atmospheric, pastorally infused and electronically treated and overlaid piano ambiance, that is inspired in part by the novel Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel.
This dreamy moody soundtrack to the lives of those that lived, breathed and conspired in Tudor England, comes packaged in the form of a mounted, original 8” x “10 collage, each in a fold out, stand up sleeve/frame. Each slightly differently sized collage is made from the full page photos of a huge, 80 year old book on early tudor architecture, and is collaged ala Max Ernst with vintage prints of birds, animals, and other slightly surreal elements... they are of course all uniquely stamped/marked/treated with the usually attempted TRS flair! Hanging from the back of the display folder is the factory pressed disc in a collaged envelope, along with a hand printed insert on antique ledger paper. The whole display package comes in a large, hand assembled and ribbon tied envelope made from deluxe, hand block printed wallpaper, by Paper Mills. Extremely evocative!
This deluxe version will be available in an edition of only 85 copies. There is also a beautiful, standard digipak version in an edition of 150 copies.
As usual, the copy you receive may or not be one of the ones pictured! Collages and packaging by Colin Herrick and Maria Chenut...
