More Info

"The pieces that make up The Eureka Tapes (The Complete Recordings) were all created while Hoor-paar-Kraats Anthony Mangicapra was living in the town of Eureka, California. Indeed, the towns name is apt as they represent a Eurekamoment for Hoor-paar-Kraat as a musical entity; a figurative spilling of the bath waters as Hoor-paar-Kraat found their sound. The hints of alchemical transcendence that peeped through the cracks of previous releases come brazenly into view throughout Eureka Tapes (The Complete Recordings). Music dissolves into explorations of texture, acoustic phenomena and the psyche.
Originally issued as three separate volumes in a variety of hard to find formats (A Whisper in the Sows Ear, a 3 CD; Graduating from Clocks to Watches C55 and Taxonomy of Divine Organisms, a CDr made to accompany, and sold only at, Mangicapras exhibit of paintings, Above & Below), The Eureka Tapes (The Complete Recordings) collects the three original volumes. In addition to the original releases, The Eureka Tapes (The Complete Recordings) also includes Hoor-paar-Kraats side of their split cassette with Last and a previously unreleased recording from the same sessions. Spanning styles and moods like some kind of emotional suspension bridge, Hoor-paar-Kraats music finds itself traveling the same surreal by-ways as Nurse With Wound, irr. app. (ext.), The Hafler Trio and Coils more ritualistic output. Edition of 500." [label info]
