“Poet Paolo Javier and Ghost Box recording artist Listening Center collaborate on an exploratory assemblage of clangorous sounds and mysterious fragments of speech. Field recordings of a shadowy Filipino poet are the starting point for a darkened journey through an underworld of language and postcolonial haunting.”
Risograph publication. Fifth title in Flugschriften series. 100 copies only. All copies come with cassette and poster. A handful of posters are also available separately for purchase. (Please inquire.) Designed by Rob Carmichael, SEEN, and printed by Keegan Cooke at Circadian Press.
Contributed a written piece to Delusions of Adequacy, on one of my favorite albums – Luna Africana, by Clara Mondshine (Walter Bachauer). Read it here.
Listening Center contributed a track “Triangular Shift” to this fine compilation from A Year In The Country – a meditation on 1973 as a fault line in the continuum of time. Includes work by Circle/Temple, Sproatly Smith, Keith Seatman, The British Space Group, The Hare And The Moon ft Alaska/Michael Begg, Time Attendant, The Rowan Amber Mill, A Year In The Country and David Colohan.
