The Seattle Phonographers Union is a protean collective of sound artists, composers, and recordists who improvise live in real-time with unprocessed field recordings collected around the world. We strive to create compelling juxtapositions of everyday and esoteric sounds: A flock of pigeons may alight near flowing water and distant temple bells while a long wire fence shimmers in the wind.
This disc collects unedited sections culled from our favorite performances spanning 2004 to 2008. Performers include Steve Barsotti, Peter Comley, Katie Gately, Mark Griswold, Doug Haire, Susie Kozawa, Dale Lloyd, Perri Lynch, Rob Millis, Toby Paddock, Heather Perkins, Steve Peters, and Jonathan Way. A co-release with and/OAR and Mimeomeme.
