Beautiful picture disc LP featuring two full-color reproductions of visual works
by Rick Reed and two new side-long solo compositions. 
 
Reed's fascinating, highly evolved world is represented well by these two
new pieces, each of which offers up the kind of droning intensity and
unsettling beauty that this veteran noisemaker has come to be known for.
Reed's work is very obviously that of an experienced craftsman - one whose
sound is a reverent nod to early electronic music underscored by an
enduring sensibility for atmosphere and ethereality. 
 
Dreamz began life as the soundtrack for a live visual display by filmmaker
Ken Jacobs, which was performed live by Jacobs and Reed at the 2007
New York Film Festival. The record’s flipside, Blue Polz, was also inspired
by the work of a filmmaker (originally conceived as a kind of alternate
soundtrack to a piece by Fred Worden). All of the music was created using
an EMS Synthi A, plus 2 sine wave generators and a shortwave radio. 
 
The artwork comes from two original paintings. Reed has been active in
the visual arts for more than 20 years; his work is utterly abstract, beautifully
enigmatic. These images are the perfect accompaniment to Reed’s
otherworldly audio counterparts. 
 
In addition to his solo work, Rick Reed has participated in a number of
productive collaborations over the years with Keith Rowe, Jgrzinich (in
Frequency Curtain), the Abrasion Ensemble, and SIRSIT. He currently
resides in Austin. 
 
This picture disc LP has been released in an edition of 260 copies.
