• annea lockwood Tiger Balm / Amazonia Dreaming / Immersion (LP, £23.95)

    Black Truffle is honoured to present a new issue of Annea Lockwood’s classic 1970 tape piece, unavailable on vinyl for over thirty years. Created while Lockwood was living in the UK, the side-long Tiger Balm is a singular work within the canon of tape music. Breaking entirely with the dynamic language of the musique concrète tradition, Lockwood uses a select palette of mainly unprocessed sonic elements chosen for their mysterious and erotic characteristics opening a space of dream logic and mysterious associations between nature and culture, the ancient and the modern. Tiger Balm is also accompanied by two exquisite unreleased works for percussion and voice, Amazonia Dreaming (1987), performed by Dominic Donato, using unaccompanied snare drum and voice to evoke the nocturnal soundscape of the Amazon rainforest, and Immersion (1998), performed by Donato and Frank Cassara, a slow-moving exploration of gentle beating tones, performed on marimba, tam tams and gong. Presented in a stunning deluxe gatefold sleeve with archival pics and liner notes by Annea Lockwood including the score to Amazonia Dreaming. LP design via Stephen O’Malley. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, Berlin. Tracklisting: A: Tiger Balm B1: Amazonia Dreaming B2: Immersion
