For now only as a digital release, but it is finally out! Exquisite Cadaver is a method by which a collection of words, images, or in this case sound is collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed. In February 2010, Bleeemo Music put out a call to experimental noise and sound artists from around the globe to take part in a collaborative journey. With 18 artists on board, from 14 countries, a 10 month recording roster was set and the rest, as they say, is history. One of the magical aspects of this release is hearing, or in some cases not hearing, the artists react to each other. Each artist was only allowed to hear the final 30 seconds of the previous artists contribution before creating their track. The many ways in which the artists here have chosen to respond to each other create many depths to what is essentially one piece of ever evolving music. Includes one Merankorii track.
