Olivia Block played some incredible music for us during her visit to take part in Open Frame:Stockholm back in 2015. Since then we’ve been in discussion about working on an edition together. 132 Ranks, her gorgeous organ masterwork, is the result of these conversations. The piece was composed specifically for the enormous Skinner Organ at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel in Chicago.
Our cassette imprint, A Guide To Saints is also very proud to be releasing two highly focused explorations of singular action.
Vanessa Tomlinson, who very kindly played some critical sections on Wilderness Of Mirrors and Cruel Optimism, delivers her first solo release; The Space Inside. Two incredible works of restraint and detail for concert bass drum and tamtam.
Berlin based Julia Reidy explodes the potentials of guitar with her Beholder edition. A truly personal mediation of timbre, pulse and tonality.
