FAX 041: Sky Thing - "Lisa's Hat" C40

I've never known anyone as interested in sound as John Collins McCormick. From his experiments in acoustics and sound sculpture to his innovations in format with the instructive pamphlet album, "Music for Earplugs", he has always seemed fascinated by resonance and atmosphere, exploring every tone in a sound as simple as a styrofoam cup dragging across the floor. On "Lisa's Hat", we step into a room of intense concentration on our surroundings, every buzz and click adding to a resplendent garden of refuse. Edition of 50.
