Before there was Klanggalerie, there was Syntactic, an Austrian label that specialized in extremely limited (but generally high quality) 7" vinyl releases. Most are valuable collectors' items today, such as the records by Organum, CCCC, Main, Muslimgauze, Merzbow, and so on. This little record was produced in 1996 in that most inconvenient format, the compilation 7". That means very short songs by a lot of people, in this case shorter songs by more people than you might want on such a short little record: Thirdorgan, Sons of Silence, Fennesz, Christoph Kurzmann, Werner Mobius, Legion, Aube, King Lear's Convulsions (who?), Aube, The Haters, Scanner, and Makoto Takashima. Edition of just 100 copies. Pay a fortune to ruthless collector mercinaries, or just listen to it here.
