Jan Jelinek:
Music for Fragments / Music & Birds

Faitiche is delighted to present Jan Jelinek's Music for Fragments / Music & Birds. This Mini-LP is the first of four vinyl compilations that bring together a highly diverse range of Jelinek's works - including commissioned pieces, live recordings, collaborations with other musicians, as well as unreleased material from the past five years.

Temple of Faitiche - USB Kubus

Side A: 
Music for Fragments developed from a collaboration with Canadian choreographer Sylvain Émard. Two excerpts of music composed for the dance piece Fragments – Volume 1 (2010) are presented in revised form on the A side. 

Side B: 
Music & Birds is a commissioned work for the CosmoCaixa science museum in Barcelona, Spain. Using various recordings of birdsong and two oscillators, Jelinek produced a number of rhythmical sketches. The tracks gathered here were recorded during the preparations for a live performance in 2011. 

The series of compilations will culminate in the release of a vinyl collectors box and booklet. The digital release will be no less of a monumental gesture: a limited edition of USB concrete blocks will house the MP3 versions of Jelinek's compilations. It is planned to install the data storage devices – each measuring approximately .125 cubic Meters – to be freely accessible in music shops an other public spaces.  

LP (sleeve with hole, inside/out) / also available: Temple Vinyl Box, includes Faitiche08, 09, 10 & 11. Mastering by Rashad Becker, artwork by Jan Jelinek. Copyright control.
