about

Released as a limited edition of 100 professionally dubbed cassettes (orange ink on cobalt blue shell) with artwork by Nathan Bowers.

Originally recorded in 2014, the followup to Vorndran's 2012 solo debut, "Cathartic Automation" finally sees a physical release in 2022 after many years of limbo. Impressionistic modular synthesizer soundscapes navigating the tactile territory between feeling and expression.

From Karl:

"The masters for this album were on a computer whose hard drive and backup disk failed. The album sat in limbo for many years while I hoped the masters would turn up someday. Luckily, Chris was able to locate his original masters and re-send them to me in December 2020.

Now you get to hear the album as it was original intended."
