Center Of The Earth
EDITION OF 500
2 x 180gram audiophile LPs housed in tip-on gatefold jackets by Stoughton
Sonic Meditations is proud to present the 2006 heavy drone suite Center of the Earth by Expo '70. This four part suite is presented on deluxe 180 gram audiophile virgin vinyl housed in gatefold tip-on jackets. Mastered for vinyl by Pete Lyman of Infrasonic Sound. Justin Wright's Expo '70 has been gaining momentum over the years, having started with self-released CDr's, Wright has made a name across the globe for Expo '70. Center of the Earth was recorded over 3 days in 2006, released by Wright himself, the album sold over 650 CDr's. Wright also re-released Center of the Earth last year on his start-up label, Sonic Meditations in a edition of 200 cassette tapes, which quickly sold out. Now Wright is issuing this epic drone album on vinyl, the heavily low-end drenched drone suite will sprawl across 2 180 gram LP's. Due to the length of track 3, it will sprall across from side C to D. Expo '70 has releases on Beta-lactum Ring, Dead Pilot, Kill Shaman, Peaant Magik, Sloow Tapes and Reverb Worship, just to name a few...
"Center Of The Earth is the sound of the sky buckling, the galaxy fracturing, of being sucked into some mysterious other universe, a subterranean world beneath our visible existence, murky and turbulent, a darkness impenetrable except for a few swirling swaths of grey light, quickly tangled up in the dark, the endless drift into a black hole, the sound a reverberating whir" - Aquarius Records
"With all the mystique involved in this form of unmusic, cover art and artwork will often be taken as clues to the intent of a work (especially now artisan packaging and cover art is fi rmly a part of the experience of consuming music.) Here Wright suggests some aesthetic link or inspiration from geology or space. But to spend ones time searching for clues to the secret of obscure art would be a waste of time." - Foxy Digitalis
