Craig, Ian William

A Turn Of Breath - Extended

Recital Program
2XLP $33.75



Recital here presents the premiere LP by vocalist Ian William Craig (b. 1980, Edmonton). Ian, a trained opera singer,  delivers an elegant balance between theatrical and ambient sentiments. 'A Turn of Breath' combines the essence of a choral LP from Angel Records or Deutsche Grammophon with the spontaneity of experimental home-recording. This collection holds twelve works for voice and 1/4″ tape, recorded from 2011-2013. Voice appears as the Sun’s light through a vast storm; still obscured by tape malfunctions and manipulations. A system of reel to reels is employed, which yields a lovely sort of morphing repetition. Each iteration crumbles as more harmony is placed on top, residual tones spilling off the sides into nothingness. Additional LP holds the 'Short of Breath' EP (a limited CDr included with first pressing in 2014), and the unreleased 'Fresh Breath' collection – culled from the same recording period as 'A Turn of Breath'. Final Edition of 1000 pressed on black wax; housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Ian William Craig.
