Going through some old journals from 2009 and 2010, and stumbled upon a few old drawings relating to Notice.
The first is a quick draft of a tape insert design, which more-or-less functions as an early aesthetic framework for what we wanted Notice to look like. Haven’t used “old flowers” for a cover yet, but perhaps one day…
The second documents the sound ingredients for Evan Lindorff-Ellery’s The Tea Merchant and His Atmospheres. Said items and sound sources were set into a crude mixer, with a few no-input patch cables, and the signal went directly to a 2-track tape, and that was the final product. It’s sold out, but can be purchased as a $3 download here.
