This album was originally released on Digitalis Industries (DIGITALIS LTD113) as a beautiful cassette in an edition of 80 copies, in November 2009
It is an collection of live recordings made at the opening of a sculpture/film installation by my friend Andrew Perry Davis, entitled 'Clan of the Cave Mouse' . Accompanying the sculptures was a 12 minute film by Andrew and Nathan Vollmar and for the opening reception, Drekka performed a series of 12 evolving soundtrack cycles along with the films, culminating in an appearance by the Cave Mouse and a rousing rendition of 'Love is All Around' by The Honeymoon Killers
The theme of the installation dealt with ancestral memory and the recurrence of thoughts within a family down generations, so for the source material to the soundtracks I drew primarily from archival recordings of Bluesanct artists performing material written by Drekka, drawing heavily from projects by Angelica Busque and Mark Trecka recorded as birthday gifts for me . Ideas recurring and evolving (devolving?)
This digital re-release contains the original film by Andrew and Nathan (entitled 'The Cave Mouse', w/ music by Drekka), as well as various images from the original artwork and the installation opening - plus printable artwork files, in case you feel like making your own facsimile copy of the cassette at home
