From SP Nexus:
News on AEGEA comes to us today, the anticipated 2-record set of experimental recordings made by WPC in the spring of 2007. A first pressing will be offered in 250 vinyl copies, with each edition hand numbered and annotated by Billy himself; and an expected release date in the next 6-8 weeks. Sales will transact online and be sent via secured shipping, with a few limited copies to be found in-store at Madame Zuzu's Teahouse, Highland Park, Illinois.
The price will be 59.95 $ + appropriate carrying costs to the country of your choice.
From Billy: "As a work, AEGEA is experimental in nature, and comes across as more a soundtrack to some lost foreign film than the kind of music I'm usually associated with. Listening back I quite like how AEGEA goes along, as it has qualities that are both meditative and alien; but not alienating."
Releases dates for 1st & 2nd presses are pre-order dates. 3rd press was sold in-store at Madame ZuZu's. Tracklist may be out of order.
- First press limited, 250 hand-numbered/annotated copies, first 50 on aqua vinyl
- Second press limited, 250 hand-numbered copies, all on red vinyl (#251-500)
- Third & final press on 1x12", 500 copies on pink vinyl (#501-1000), sold at Madame ZuZu's for $32.99. Single-disc version removes "the 2 longer, alternate versions of pieces #3 and #5."
