The Ashes Of Piemonte

“Winter’s Fire” | TRS-029

The Ashes Of Piemonte, “Winter’s Fire”, is a seamlessly collaborative effort between Wil Bolton(Cheju), and Lee Anthony Norris(Norken). Working from their respective homes in the UK and Italy the two have woven together a moody, cinematic homage to the historical tragedy known as the Massacre Of Piedmonte. Inspired also by the famous poem by John Milton, “On The Late Massacre In Piedmonte”, this is a spatially atmospheric blend of organic synthy electronics, melancholic field recordings and sampled voiceovers, that suits the somewhat darkly medieval subject matter perfectly. A sensitively rendered soundtrack to a nightmare long gone…

The deluxe version of Winter’s Fire comes in an edition of 100 uniquely handmade copies. Inside each copy is a stamped and printed, 9″ x 15″ heavyweight page from a 100 year old apothecary’s ledger, with all the original hand written prescriptions adhered thereon. Woven into this page in places are twigs. Each page is then tied up with antique string with an attached old, large, brass clothespin.Folded in three and hubbed in the center for the factory pressed disc, each of these pages with it’s printed vintage paper insert comes in a large antiqued envelope. Each envelope is printed, and distressed with Piedmont Pines ash, pastel, and ink… and hand stamped and sealed with blood red sealing wax.

There will be some few copies available in a printed sleeved version, sometime later.

Available in mid March!
