Brand new label Cuspeditions shares a track from its debut release by Cologne's Lu Katavist

New label Cuspeditions is premiering a track from its first release by Cologne-based artist Lu Katavist. You can listen to 'Fingerzeugung / The Coagulated Sea' above.

The track, taken from an LP called Inburst, came, like the rest of the release, from impromptu sessions by Katavist, in accordance with the label’s focus upon live improvisations, acousmatics and experimental electronics, but deviated from traditional improvised records. Katavist came at the equipment, not as a master but as a simultaneous listener and creator, to bring about the self-creating sonic landscape of Inburst.

Cuspeditions’ next release CUSP002 featuring Twinkle³ with Sidsel Endresen is due in late September, and a third record with Richard Scott should be available around November. Inburst is out later this month on 140g vinyl and digitally also, with a numbered and signed limited 'art edition' also in the works. Keep track of the label's activity here.
