2014 release. Ora Clementi is the pen name of Canadian sound artist and improviser crys cole and Australian performer and composer James Rushford. Crys has previously collaborated with Keith Rowe and Oren Ambarchi while James worked alongside Joe Talia on the highly acclaimed Manhunter LP (Kye, 2013). Penultimate Press presents this duo's hermetic world of sound, song, and speech. Employing farfisa, contact mics, percussion, viola, recordings of James's pet chickens, ocarinas, piano, and miscellaneous junk, Cover you will softer me slides from the sublime to the startling, with individual elements delicately folding and falling among an unnerving tableaux of failed lip readings, haunted hiss, piano motifs, and glistening debris. The unique combination of sound and voice lends itself to an air ripe with mystery and magic as our humble practitioners invoke images of childhood, as, when half asleep, you can hear your parents watching TV in the other room, mumbling moving through walls. Recorded in Melbourne throughout 2013 and 2014 with additional recordings made at No Recording Studio in Essex under the guidance of John Hannon. Cover you will softer me was mixed and mastered by Joe Talia and presents itself in a beautiful full-color sleeve designed by Matthew Revert as a limited edition of 400 copies.

Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
