bremsstrahlung recordings has undergone a few changes receintly and so we'd like to let you know about our new focus, website and "online-first" label.
We have just overhauled our website and changed our URL address. We are no longer at www.lowercasesound.com but now at www.bremsstrahlung-recordings.org. The site has been completely redesigned, the content has been expanded and we have added an online-first release section.
bremsstrahlung recordings is now a not-for-profit organization focusing on publishing egoless sound. Any profit made goes to help fund the nature sound preservation campaign "one square inch of silence," headed by Gordon Hempton. This is a quest to find one square inch within a national park in which "natural quiet" (absence of man-made sounds) exists. This campaign has already led to greater awareness of sound pollution in parks and caused airlines to redirect flight paths in order to better preserve "natural quiet." As the sole sponsor of this quest we will do what we can to ensure that work of raising awareness on noise pollution in national parks can continue. Currently Gordon is currently looking to conduct an acoustic survey to locate feasible one-inch sites in the ten national parks on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
In the past four years we have watched the proliferation of quality online audio releases from such labels as Stasisfield, CON-V, Thinner/Autoplate and TERM. Our appreciation of these happenings has led to us desiring to share audio in a similar way. Each TRANS>PARENT RADIATION release will be made available for a limited time as high quality (192kbs) downloadable MP3 audio and then later issued as professionally duplicated, silk-screened CDRs with professionally printed handmade packaging. The edition runs will be small (50 � 100), hand numbered, and NOT reissued.
