Woob – Repurpose release details.

UPDATE…..upload is taking forever… over 4 hours and only halfway there I’ll create a new post when its done.

……………….27.5.10 (after 4pm GMT 8am Pacific)

That’s Thursday. So not long to wait.

The Album plus digital booklet will be available on download at Woobsound/Bandcamp and later on iTunes.

As you can see there is also a CD version of the album. This is a hand printed recycled gatefold card case with professionally printed and duplicated CDr plus an 8 page colour booklet.

A very special individually numbered first edition will include a double-sided A3 poster and will be limited to just 25 copies.

Due to circumstances outside of my control all the bits necessary to produce the CD will not be ready until mid July (the images you see are the prototype) Rather than postpone the digital release I thought it best to release that now. For those who want the CD but don’t want to wait, every copy of the CD comes with a digital download – so if you buy the CD now on Thusrsday from Woobsound you can listen straight away whilst spending the time waiting for the CD trying to guess which number you will get.

Mat Jarvis – Gas/High Skies Interview

Mat Jarvis is currently celebrating 15 years since the first release of his seminal album ‘Gas 0095’. In February of this year he released a new E.P, Sounds of Earth under the name ‘High Skies’. I recently got a chance to ask him a few questions about it:

S9: Tell me a bit about the recording process.

MJ: Recording and mixing was done pretty much all in the box (inside the computer), I don’t use many softsynths at the moment, although sometimes I will sample an analog synth or noise and put it in a softsampler. I have a few external effects and old delays and phasers, so some sounds go through four or five generations being sampled and resampled through this old gear to take the edges off, and sometimes become unrecognisable until I finally get the sound I’m after, which was a lot of processing for the percussive bass sound on the track ‘Sounds of Earth’.
