About this item
Originally released in 1986 under Luis Delgado’s cult imprint El Cometa de Madrid, produced by Luis Delgado (Finnis Africae, Mecánica Popular) and performed by Patricia Escudero, this beautiful record dives into Erik Satie’s compositional work thru an experimental optic.
Entirely recorded on synthesizers, and making heavy use of FX and timbral manipulation, the record's serene and weightless nature are instantly observable from the start, whilst rich harmonic undertones & overtones reveal themselves with further exploration.
-This record was remastered and cut from the original tapes. However, those tapes were highly affected for what is known as the Sticky Shed Syndrome, and were very deteriorated.
Even though that was professionally taken care of, it was a very long process to get a result that exceeded our standards to be pressed. That being said, there are very few parts were you might find an slight change on sound that was impossible to eliminate completely, due to the above mentioned issue.
