SP13 (Lathe Edition) JOZEF VAN WISSEM – Arcana Coelestia OUT OF PRINT
New recordings from this New York based Dutch lutenist. Jozef takes an expiremental approach to an instrument so deeply steeped in tradition; eploying minimalist, classical, conceptual and improvisational methods. He has collaborated with the likes of Keiji Haino, Tetuzi Akiyama, Loren Connors, Smegma, Jim Jarmusch amongst others.
“…A series of unreleased recordings from Wissem that transpose early music settings to realms of psychoactive minimalism via repetition and improvisatory gambits in a way that sounds like an even more Renaissance-focussed Sandy Bull.” – David Keenan, Volcanic Tounge
The Lathe Edition series is a number of lathe-cut 10″ records produced in very restricted runs. Each disc is cut by hand in New York City, packaged in foil stamped tip-on Stoughton sleeves, individually titled and numbered.
