about

ALCHEMICAL PLAYSCHOOL

Could there be a more satisfying project for The Dots than "Alchemical Playschool?"
The concept was devised by Old friend and collaborator Charles Powne at Soleilmoon Records who became besotted by the sub-continent of India around a decade ago.
In fact he wanted to share his experiences and recorded the environment almost wherever he went.These recordings were made available on the fascinating "Indian Soundscapes" double cd on Soleilmoon.
Even so, he still wanted to go a step further and that's where the Dots' came in.He asked us to provide musical soundscapes ,using his field recordings as a source.
We did our best. All manner of instrumentation came into play- most notably on Part 1 with the circuit bent flower, which was made for EK by a genius friend in San Francisco named Tom Koch (Univac).
It took a few months to make the music, and longer to make the package- a handmade soapstone box which had to be shipped from India- almost impossibly fragile and extremely beautiful.
2,000 were made but it's now long out-of-print, although the more regular reissue is a small delight in it's own right.
No remaster necessary for this one.
