More Info

"LTCo presents the debut release, Never Force A Left Handed Child To Use Their Right Hand, by solo artist Andrew Dewar Ainslie, a UK-based composer given to creating atmospheric music from textures, tones and gentle oscillations with a somewhat melancholic or reflective slant. Comprising three songs, Manifesto, Wild Strawberries and the side long title track, this adds up to over 30 minutes of music plus features the late Jhonn Balance on the piece Manifesto, delivering a very rarely heard reading of the Coil manifesto which was itself first broadcast on Hollands VPRO station. The release is set to appear during April 2011 and will be strictly limited to 300 only, with the first 50 also featuring a CDR and a selection of hand numbered/signed additional inserts (the remaining 250 will also randomly include some extras). These are exclusive to the label's mail order wing and can only be ordered directly." [label info]


"Its all semantics of course, but this is announced as 12", mini LP, with three tracks, still spanning around thirty minutes and its the first in a series of six (which is going to include Philippe Petit/Cindytalk, Brian Conniffe, Human Greed, Main and Theme), although I am not sure what ties these together. I never heard of Glass Out, being the project of Andrew Dewar Ainslie. Main sales point here is the reading of the Coil manifesto by Jhonn Balance (from a rarely heard session by VPRO Radio) on the piece 'Manifesto'. Electronic music this is, with slow oscillating beats, melodies and spoken word. Quite gentle music here, slowly evolving and highly atmospheric. I am not sure if this is all done with a bunch of synthesizers (analog or digital), or if there was perhaps some other instrument in play here. But the thoughtful atmospheric pieces of music work pretty well here. Its a pity that its only three pieces since it would be interesting to see what other tricks this guy has up his sleeve."
