s P L e e N C o F F i N - 7 & 7 : VOL. 1
Thresholds of sound and creativity have been unearthed by the Baltimore, Maryland label sPLeeNCoFFiN. 7 & 7 : VOL. 1 brings together four artist working in the sonic noise nexus, a place where transcriptions of the consciousness are perfectly conveyed. The creative mind imprinting momentary passages, thoughts transformed to sounds, here for an instant then retreating away into the cosmic nebula. The unity these artist share is most perplexing, similarities and differences so interwoven together, all describing the same place, just in their own version. Fortunately sPLeeNCoFFiN has recognized this commonality and acted upon it. The label has gone equal distance in preparing and sharing these far sonic reaches with a format equally as delicate to achieve.
This release is housed within vintage seven inch reel to reel cases. Tape reels gone and replaced by two seven inch vinyl records, each side devoted to one of the four selected artist. The cases have been beautifully recovered front and back, with the back side holding format to the original reel to reel box. Inside the front cover is more artwork and beautiful twelve page, seven by seven inch book, with gate folds for each artist. Each vinyl record is also housed in a clear plastic sleeve with screen printed artist and song titles. Before moving on to the sounds, high praise to the artist(s) and designer(s) who put this together. And also advanced gratitude since this is the first of three volumes in this series from the sPLeeNCoFFiN headquarters.
