Jubal Brown's never before screened THE BLACKNESS 2005

is highly referential to the traditions of experimental film and experimental music seen through digital video. The Blackness is made entirely of appropriated source processed and transformed into an abstract narrative of meaning and loss and emptiness and desire.

Jason Lescalleet has gradually and painstakingly built a compelling discography over the past decade. He uses reel-to-reel tape decks to explore the textures of low fidelity analog sounds and the natural phenomena of old tape and obsolete technology. He is one of a growing list of master producer/musicians whose skill lies as much in reworking, assembling and mastering the material available as in creating it in the first place.

Praise for Jason Lescalleet's 2CD album SONGS ABOUT NOTHING:

...and The Wire magazine name it #5 in their year-end list of best albums.
