Light is here... and then it wasn't. After many delays with the fabulous Loren Connors and Clint Heidorn debut collaboration, the crystal-clear, one-sided LPs finally arrived. We were ecstatic. Then we played a copy and the record skipped. So we played another -- and then the needle jumped out of the groove. And on and on... each copy of the LP had some type of defect in the first few rotations. The record is being repressed -- which is great, of course -- but it will be another delay before Light is finally complete. The release date has been adjusted to Dec. 2.
Above is a photo of how the finished record will look. The artwork is two pieces of Connors’ art -- a detail of a recontextualized Matisse painting. One piece is transparent plastic, the other paper. Together, the opaque block of 11-inch x 11-inch sheets are intended to be hung in your window so the light can illuminate the hidden colors. A full-color postcard of Connors' full piece is also included.
It will be worth the wait...
