bnsd-024 - 2017

Colleen's 2005 album on cassette for the first time, limited to a one-time edition of 100 numbered copies.  Chrome cassette housed in Stumptown Printers packaging using 100% recycled paper. Screenprinted in Portland by The Make House.

"My second album, released in 2005 on The Leaf Label, in which I totally abandoned sampling other people’s records: I recorded my old trusted classical guitar and my newly-acquired instrument collection (cello, zither, music boxes, ukulele, chimes…) in the living-room of my now slightly bigger flat in Paris, except the glass harmonicon on “The Heart Harmonicon” which was recorded by its owner, John Cavanagh, in Glasgow. I am originally a guitar player and the move from samples back to real music instruments was pivotal, as it seemed to open up infinite possibilities. This was also the first album of mine for which Italian artist Iker Spozio created the artwork – a collaboration that goes on to this day." - Colleen
