Three cassettes, 29 artists.

Brooklyn-based collective-label hybrid Cultivated Sound has announced a colossal compilation spread across three cassettes.

Special Interest Group features 29 New York-based and international artists that work in the realms of ambient, electro-acoustic, noise, house and techno and includes tracks from Doc Sleep, Jaclyn Kendall, Gaspar Peralta, Phon.o, Ariel Zetina and many more.

As Cultivated Sound explains, the comp intends to visualize a post-utopian sphere where the musicians collectively narrate their experience of traveling to an imaginary reality. The tracks do so by “experimenting and advancing sound from machines and acoustic instruments, inputting information [and] creating an environment to learn, collaborate, reflect and address ideas to each other”.

The compilation will be available on October 21 both digitally and as a special art edition of 100 bundled cassettes made in collaboration with Pop-Up Art Project, aka PASP. A release party is scheduled to be held at Brooklyn’s Bossa Nova Civic Club on October 26. See more info on that event here.
