Blanketship: (threeps) g25_002, released may 13th 2003 This 25 track, 63 minute audio documentary by Blanketship is his first full length album on g25productions. The three eps offered in this set were recorded between Sept 2001 and Jan 2002, and distributed through limited edition cassette release only. G25productions is proud to release selections from all three eps on one disc. Blanketship: (blank-et-ship) Weaved through the deep sound of fluttered cassette playbacks, creepy samples, disturbing melodies, quiet passages and infectious arcade funk comes a sound distinctly Blanketship. The first of the three ep's, 'l'homme invisible' (2001), combines the darkness and sparseness of orchestral accompaniments with minimal electro time pieces to create a disturbing and contemporary basket of compositions. Taking a brighter musical turn is the joyous 'captain assure' (2001), done originally on old fostex 4 tracks, these songs flow with an awakening touch of light spirit. Like seeing an old friend who has come back from his travels...densely layered melodies and soft core funk brings the captain in for a port of call. The final ep in the trilogy, 'willow bend' (2002), sets Blanketship back into orbit. Co-produced by phil robert k, the songs breathe a new life of atmosphere and sonic landscape inspired by a retirement complex deep in the rich swamps of Florida. Lush and surreal offerings put a final close to the album but open new doors of experimentation for 'the ship'. We hope this album opens your ears to the haunting yet peaceful world of Blanketship, and leaves you waiting at the dock for his return with new treasures.
