Through the Dread Waste

by Capac

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    The physical form and true embodiment of the concept behind THROUGH THE DREAD WASTE. [Please note this DELUXE COMBUSTIBLE EDITION is NOT a vinyl, we had to list it as such to ensure you receive a digital download immediately upon purchase.]

    You receive a fire log with a brass plate attached. After burning the log, among the ashes you will find your metal plate revealing instructions to access the original constructions of the traditional pieces of music, prior to their deconstruction. Destruction, after all, is a form of creation.

    **PLEASE NOTE**
    We are humbled to have sold out of the first edition on its release day, and due to demand we are producing a second batch, slightly different to the first. The new batch will ship on or around 9th March 2018 as we need to make the new fire logs by hand and wait for the printers to complete the new art prints and booklets.

    Along with your log, you also receive an exclusive A4 art print on heavyweight recycled card stock taken from the album cover art, and a booklet of sheet music and liner notes.

    As an additional bonus all physical copies come complete with an exclusive EP unavailable elsewhere. The bonus EP is a four part rendering of Σήκω Μάνα (Rise, Mother).

    We reiterate, this edition is NOT a vinyl, we had to list it as a vinyl to ensure you receive a digital download immediately upon purchase. (Bandcamp does not have 'Deluxe Combustible Edition' as a release format.)

about

THROUGH THE DREAD WASTE, the second album from electronic collective Capac, comprises ten interpretations of the coldest traditional winter music in the form of dark drone and atmospheric ambience.

The record follows Capac’s 2015 debut album, Sea Freeze, which was released through independent label This Is It Forever, and described by Uncut as “both minimal and monumental”. This latest concept sees the collective delve deeper into the murky depths as they explore the passing of old winter tales across generations. Capac subvert the convention of remembering and recording traditional music, utilising technological advances available in the digital age. Each piece was constructed with minimal instrumentation in Athens, Greece, and subsequently deconstructed in Bristol, UK, using a myriad of digital processing techniques, embodying the tradition of passing on and reinterpreting folk stories.

The album title is taken from Robert Couper’s 1804 poem, Winter Morning. Here three generations of one family recite the verses. We hear a grandfather, two sons, and three grandchildren, and the paralinguistic shifts resulting from socio-economic and geographical changes over time in this work of sound art, the album's centrepiece.
