K Leimer RECORDINGS 1977-1980 Vinyl Record
Limited edition of 200. K. Leimer has been an active musician since the 1970s and has released avant-garde and experimental music under his own name on his Palace of Lights label, which he started in 1980 to release his own work and that of other artists and projects such as Marc Barreca, Michael William Gilbert, Anode, and the group Savant, of which he is the founding and leading member. His first two tape recordings, included on this double LP, were released on Robert Carlberg's Anode Productions in 1978 and '79 (Translucent/Memory and Natural History/The Mind and Its Likeness). Both tapes were also distributed via Archie Patterson's Eurock. This set also includes material from the 1983 cassette Installation View. "It's best to consider these recordings as a homage to much admired and deeply loved music of the time; to consider these recordings as the artifacts of lessons being learned during simultaneous attempts at conceiving, writing, voicing, engineering, recording, and mixing something that might at least seem to be music. It's also best to consider that the one card that repeatedly found its way out of the Oblique Strategies deck and into my hands prevented me from erasing almost all of it: Honor thy mistake as a hidden intention." --K. Leimer
