Parakustiks #1 was conceived as give-away for the subscribers with issue #82 of Bad Alchemy fanzine. Besides offering a representative selection of (nearly) all Karlrecords releases + artists the compilation also features exclusive tracks by Hans Castrup and our friend Phaerentz who has released several critically acclaimed albums so far. Available as free download (donations welcome) and a strictly limited edition CDr.
This is a beautiful album, a mix of field recordings and music blended into a journey around the world. One moment you're on the street weaving between cars and bicycles, then you find yourself in a temple hearing the religous chants, then a small boy is whispering in your ear. An album I frequently return to and a trip worth taking your ears on. James Newcombe
