Words from the label:
Vittelli continues to set out its’ stall with this brilliant LP by Australian sound maker Matthew Philip Hopkins (Vincent Over the Sink / The Bowles / Naked on the Vague / Half High). This is Hopkins’ first solo vinyl outing after a decade of micro-edition cassettes and CDR’s.
Nocturnes was assembled during late night headphone sessions at Hopkins’ Sydney home in late 2013. He employs synth, cassettes, fx pedals, contact mic and random objects to create a hypnotic suite of dramatic and highly evocative works that will appeal to listeners of Nate Young, William Basinski, Rushford & Talia, Andrew Chalk, Giancarlo Toniutti, Ralf Wehowsky et al.
Nocturnes was mastered by Graham Lambkin (Kye / Shadow Ring) and comes in an edition of 300 on grey vinyl with colour sleeve and printed insert featuring texts of ‘listening events’ written and assembled by the artist.
Format: 12" vinyl record. 33rpm.
Year of release: 2014
Label: Vittelli Records (VIT002)
