    "Warehouse find" copies (i.e. these have been in my closet for the last 7 years!) of 2008 private press release by Che Chen & Robbie Lee. We made 200 or so of these, our first LP after a series of CD-r's on our own Telegraph Harp label (which Robbie has recently resurrected). Pasted on color inkjet print on the front cover. Rubber stamped jacket and labels. Photocopied insert.

    "We were meeting two or three times a week during this time, playing delicate, mostly acoustic improvisations, eking spontaneous folk forms out of free explorations of sound and timbre, the harmonic series, a kind of foraging or shambolic folk minimalism. Our instruments, of which there were a great many, were arcane, exotic, found, broken and occasionally perfectly ordinary. I hadn't started using a reel to reel or even playing violin yet, I don't think, and Robbie's fixation on olde keyboard instruments and block flutes was just starting to go full tilt. We were curious, in both senses of the word and this music still seems equally so..." --c.c.
