Preslav Literary School

Tape music using found sonics, melodic noise and spoken word.

Space time decay

Summer's elastic days are beginning to shorten. For one week only, you can slow time's inevitable decay with this free digital download of Analepsis.

"Enveloping tape collages in the fields of drone and neo-classical... Analepsis gradually builds a shimmering mass of harmonised bass swells and lush ambient signatures from fragments of field recordings and subtle synth infusions. Recommended if you like: Aki Onda, Philip Jeck, Machinefabriek." [Boomkat]

I'll be reconstructing the album from source material at two special shows next week. The first will be a special Berlin solo set to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the cassette tape. The next day I'll play at Space Time Festival in the UK (alongside Venetian Snares, Russell Haswell, Cut Hands, Vindicatrix, Blood Music, Nochexxx and more...). That'll be a special duo set with NZ guitar hero Will Gresson.

Preslav plays Space Time: Convention T

Preslav Literary School will play his first shows in over a year at the Space Time festival at Wysing in the UK. Thrilled to be on a bill with Russell Haswell, Vindicatrix and many others. It'll be a special collaboration show with Will Gresson who I shared a split release with not so long ago. Here's the blurb.

Space Time: Convention T: Saturday 31 August, 12 noon to midnight

"Space Time: Convention T is a mix of live music, sound, spoken word performances, film screenings, artists’ stalls and activities for families that explore how artists and musicians apply hidden systems and structures to their work. The day-long event takes place on three stages across Wysing’s rural site, including the unique and atmospheric Amphis Stage (pictured). Festival artwork by Michael Dean. Confirmed musicians: Russell Haswell, Cut Hands, Vindicatrix, Preslav Literary School, Meta-eX. Live performances by: Keren Cytter with Maria & the Mirrors, Plastique Fantastique, live opera by Edwin Burdis plus special guests."

Now is the winter of our discount content...

This winter, everything digital over at the Preslav Literary Shop is two pounds sterling.

I've sold out of a bunch of physical things, including all tapes and the In Fractals album. Apparently, at the time of writing, there are three copies left of Analepsis still though. Be quick.
