Throbbing Gristle - Desertshore Installation

"As you may have seen, TG will be presenting an Installation at London's ICA, on June 1-3, 2007 during which they will be recording the initial parts for a new album which is based on their interpretation of Nico's classic Desertshore album, which we hope after final production, to release in 2008.

These six two-hour sessions will be recorded in full on a Soundfield microphone, then a small number pressed onto 12 discs in cd-r format, the size of the edition being based largely on the number of pre-orders received.

The resulting set of 12 cd-rs, housed in a 12 page stamped cd wallet, will be available from this store only - a must for interested parties unable to attend in person, and for all serious collectors of TG Art."

"These recordings were made as a document of TG´s Desertshore Installation. They are presented here unedited, in their original, naked, honest form (other than increasing the level of conversation, and reducing the level of sounds that might blow your speakers).

Everything you hear here, though not necessarily intentional, is part of the creative process. All clicks, hums, buzzes, distortion etc. are an intrinsic part of the listening experience, which you share with the audience on that day."

I guess you've been asked this a million times, but life is no fun when you're a long-time TG fan strapped for cash, so is there a possibility of reporting the Desertshore Installation downloads?

Actually, I didn't know that this was dead again!

I'll get on it...

You're a Blurt person?

St. Anthony 2 February 2014 at 10:51  

Cheers for that! Yes, I have been known to express an enthusiasm for Blurt once or twice. I should have also said how excellent Bleakbliss is ... there's always something completely new to me on it. Fantastic site, it really is.
