Volume VI | 菜谱第6部音乐合辑
This release marks the last of our collective efforts for the 2016 season. However, it embodies many firsts for Seippelabel as a whole. In conjunction with this compilation’s debut we have arranged our first ever event in California, USA at Oakland.Secret on November 5th as well as the first Seippelabel show in our hometown, New Orleans at the Mudlark Public Theater. Another anticipated addition is the launch of merch featuring original art by Rachel Maves.
On the music end, a delicately curated selection of works from varying experimental and electronic artists have been assembled to span the 5 track collection with album art to match. Persisting with the our theme of promoting and supporting friends and respected fellow artists this compilation connects producers and instrumentalists of different nationalities, genders and geographic locations.
Featured Visual Artist
Seippelabel’s East Coast support and contributions seem to grow with every release. This spotlighted talent resides West of the Blue Ridge Mountains in red brick Richmond, Virginia. Brandon Hurtado, known originally to us for his lush analog tape, field recording and overall attention to space and detail, lends his collage and printmaking work for the featured Volume 6 album cover.
A little excerpt from Brandon himself on this specific piece:
“I set out to explore narrative relationships between two found elements, and create an environment from those relationships. I seek to place the focus on these relationships by using the minimum amount of materials necessary - any more than 2 pieces of paper and I start feeling like things are getting cluttered. Curating these elements from a source based on chance - magazines, newspapers, etc - further turns my focus to how the elements I come across interact and relate with each other.”
Seippelabel is fortunate to announce Brandon’s release of a new track appearing on Volume 7 entitled, “New Spine.” Be on the lookout for Brandon’s ever evolving sound libraries and visual treats at http://tsintsi.virb.com/ or https://bhurtado.bandcamp.com/
