Paul at Microscopics, a new UK net label, sent word about their first (re)release.
Microscopics is the label of Mat Jarvis, aka “Gas”, who had a cult electronic music hit with his CD Gas 0095, on the EM:T label.
Here’s info from the label on Gas 0095:
This first release on the new Microscopics label has been painstakingly remastered at 32bit/96khz with a luxurious 32db dynamic range, which in these days of hyper-compressed music is pure oxygen.
The album prompted one reviewer to predict ‘ It will be at the forefront of labels offering slot-in brain cards as accessories to the listening experience’, and another to exclaim ‘…will surely go down in history for being as important as the albums of Eno were in the 70s’.
Gas generates shapeshifting melodic soundtracks suggesting a near future of soft technology and extremes of miniaturisation: an imaginary, detailed world of molecular machines, where cybersurgeons crawl inside arteries to effect repairs. Here the flipside of miniaturization is revealed: technology you inhale, the ultimate interface [and the high of the future?]. Breathe deep.
This fan video gives a taste of what to expect with the music on Gas 0095:
The first single from the album, the 10 minute Gas – Microscopic, is available as a free MP3 (below).
The release is available as an instant download. The “ultra hi-fi” version includes the music and a booklet, plus postcard, bookmark and the ultra rare ‘Time Recording Guide to Particle Physics’.
