"Ltd edition 7 inch ep white flexidisc at 33rpm in custom packaging with insert and accompanying free download. this is two sides of audio at 11minutes and a download for a further 18 minutes...a 29 minute 'mini LP' in all...

:zoviet*france: and Fossil Aerosol Mining Project take their collaboration, which resulted in last years Patina Pooling double album release by alt.vinyl, a stage further into the realm of pliable reverberation. Using the near-redundant record format of the 7-inch flexidisc, Flexible Pooling consists of two new tracks that have been devised with the lo-fi quality of the format in mind. The low grade sound fidelity and susceptibility to physical degradation of flexidiscs intentionally becomes an additional layer to the recordings, a surface audio patina analogous to the rusting of the steel sleeves of last years album.

Coded access to the free download of an additional, extended track will be supplied exclusively with the single.

Flexible Pooling will be released by alt.vinyl and Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art this month, in conjunction with the Baltic 39 exhibition, The Curves of the Needle." [label info]


"In 2014, we were blessed with a few copies of the first collaboration between the like-minded alchemists :zoviet*france: and the Fossil Aerosol Mining Projects, which came to us as a double lp, housed in a beefy slab of metal. Those few copies did not take long disappear, and we certainly expect that same fate to fall upon this outing as well. Flexible Pooling is intended to be the material antipode to the heft and durability of that first, with this 7" being a mere flexidisc and housed in a thin paper sleeve, with various printed ephemera gracing the package as well. There's two tracks found on the flexidisc and a download track, making the entire program an honest 30 minutes in length. It's a radioactive blizzard of tape machined errata, countervailed with subcutaneous drones and slippery layers of bedraggled, haptic noise compressed and / or exhumed from the vaults of some deep sea science station collecting data on thermal vents at the ocean floor before it was abandoned. The two entities organically sift through their material, sending various flutters, glissandos, snippets of unknowable dialogue, and electrical malfunctions into accreted and aggregated chorales of raw hypnogogia. Beautiful and eerie, Flexible Pooling represents a perfectly realized sound between two already exceptional authors of the sublime drift. Extremely limited." [Aquarius Rec.]
