EVP recordings made in 2009 by Esposito at the onetime home of Duncan in Prospect Heights, Illinois, to which the current resident would not permit entry (though his spouse had previously agreed to it). Heidi Harman, the medium who was present at the encounter, heard Duncan's name specified by the voice. "There Must Be A Way Across This River" represents Duncan’s involvement and processing of the events at his childhood home; "The Abject" is the result of Z’ev dealing with the occurrences in Prospect Heights. 140g vinyl. Double-sided insert. Edition of 500

MICHAEL ESPOSITO / G.X. JUPITTER-LARSEN / MUENNICH

The Wraiths of Flying A

(Firework Edition) CD $16.50

Subdued, quiet, with loops of found sound, hissing, ticking, voice material dropping in and out of the mix. Solos, duets and trios -- spectral voices, other voices that are abused, cut, crushed or stifled, a drone decorated with samples and percussive inserts. Vital Weekly likes to think of it as “a radio play of highly obscured sounds, always looping around.”
