    Michael Tanner-Nine Of Swords-inside of Dusk and Dawn Editions-A Year In The Country

    Nine of Swords was created by using nine tarot cards allocated to nine sonorous, percussive instruments which were played in the order of their drawing from the deck.

    Its method of creation recalls the random cut-up literary techniques of William Burroughs or automatic writing and the resulting work is a 68 minute journey which is a balm to contemporary intensity of input.

    No plug-ins or FX were used in the making of Nine of Swords; the music in the album was guided purely using the (non)choices of the turns of the cards.

     

    Also available as a limited edition Night boxset and Day string bound booklet: see Day #245/365.
