Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined

    Earlier this year, Transgressive reissued American-Canadian composer and activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s 1986 masterpiece, Keyboard Fantasies, marking the 35th anniversary of its original release. Today, he announces, Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined - a collection of songs from the now legendary album, re-worked and re-imagined by a collection of creative kindred spirits.

    The remix album and reissue of the original work follows the Autumn 2020 release of Glenn’s album, Transmissions: The Music of Beverly Glenn-Copeland. Transmissions was a career-spanning album that includes compositions from his early works including selections from Keyboard Fantasies. It also included both new and archival unreleased tracks and live versions. This collection marked the first new release from Glenn-Copeland since 2004. The New York Times called it a “life-spanning mixtape that moves from the mournful torch songs of his youth to joyously soulful odes to survival.”

      Keyboard Fantasies - 2021 Reissue

        35th anniversary reissue of legendary Canadian/American singer, composer and transgender activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s beloved seminal work.

        An ahead-of-it’s-time synth exploration which somehow combines the essence of new-age minimalism, early Detroit techno and the warmth of traditional songwriting.

        His third album, Keyboard Fantasies was originally self-released on cassette in 1986. Initially over-looked by mainstream media, it caught the ear of a Japanese collector who contacted the artist in 2015 and asked for copies to sell. These sold out instantly and led to more copies being distributed… and multiple offers from record labels.

        Features stunning alternative cover artwork + liner notes by Robyn.

        Only the second time the album has been repressed (and previous repress was very limited), LP edition is housed in a gatefold sleeve with spot gloss to the cover, with printed inner sleeve, 180g black vinyl + download code.

        First time the album has been available on CD. This format is a digi-sleeve with spot gloss to the cover + 8-page booklet.

          Transmissions: The Music Of Beverly Glenn-Copeland

            Throughout a fifty year recording career, legendary singer, composer and transgender activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland's music has defied categorisation and genre, its only consistency being the extraordinary fusion of vision, technology, spirituality and place.

            Now in his mid-70’s, Glenn-Copeland was born into a musical family and studied the classical piano repertoire from ‘cradlehood,’ listening to his father playing the piano four to five hours a day. He moved from his home-town of Philadelphia to study classical music at McGill University, Montreal in 1961 (focussing on the European song repertoire) before he suddenly felt called to write music that would weave influences from the myriad musical cultures he had come to love.

            Newly signed to Transgressive, this career spanning collection of songs includes three previously unreleased tracks; ‘River Dreams’, written last year and released with the album announcement, the live versions of ‘Deep River’+ ‘Colour Of Anyhow’, in addition to studio tracks from his acclaimed masterpiece Keyboard Fantasies + more.

            Beverly Glenn-Copeland

            Keyboard Fantasies

              Invisible City's Brandon Horcura launches his latest reissue venture, the superbly titled Seance Centre, with a re-release of Beverly Glenn-Copeland's "Keyboard Fantasies" with a new carefully reconstructed glasswork design by Alan Briand. Beverly Glenn-Copeland is already known amongst collectors and music heads for two sought-after albums of folky jazz in the key of Joni. But it was this album, originally self-released on cassette in 1986 that blew Brandon's mind. The album, entirely recorded on DX-7 and TR-707, lies somewhere between digital new-age and (accidentally) early Detroit techno experiments. The inimitable style of BGC here is both peaceful and meditative while simultaneously rhythmic and bass heavy. The album was recorded in the northern Canadian town of Huntsville where BGC was living at the time and is a beautiful fusion of personal vision, technology and place. Reissued in absurdly limited quantities by ICE last year, this astonishing LP is the perfect way to kick off Seance Centre.

              STAFF COMMENTS

              Patrick says: Invisible City's Brandon Horcura kicks off his new Seance Centre imprint with a new reissue of Beverly Glenn Copeland's techno-leaning new-age gem with lush new artwork. Buy-on-sight!
