Patrick Gleeson - FOUREVERRegular price $30.00
Grammy nominated Patrick Gleeson, 18th Century English literature PHD professor turned Master Synthesist of Apocalypse Now and Herbie Hancock’s legendary Mwandishi septet FOUREVER is a 4 song 33 minute, 33 and 1/3 second album exploring the edge of minimalist jazz in quadraphonic sound.
The 86-copy limited edition version of FOUREVER commemorates Gleeson's 86-years alive and includes quadraphonic vinyl, a career retrospective large-format book co-published by IN-FO.CO called FOREVER Ago and two CDs featuring a catalog of Gleeson’s past work including collaborations with Herbie Hancock, Jim Lang, Bennie Maupin, and the prolific avantgarde visual artist Bruce Conner whose pen & ink drawing adorns the FOUREVER album cover. This version will be signed by Pat, himself.
A cement-encased version with an impression of Gleeson’s handprints will also be available at select Los Angeles retailers. All versions of the release are encoded using dublab’s Quadraphonic Universally Accessible Resource Kit (QUARK). QUARK enables semi-binaural listening via standard 2-channel playback or 4-speaker listening via Involve Audio hardware decoders, vintage Regular Matrix quadraphonic receivers, Dolby Pro-Logic II receivers, or any multi-channel audio interface equipped computer. FOUREVER is immersive via all formats: digital download, streaming (Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube, etc), radio broadcast, vinyl and high-resolution Dolby Atmos (Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon HD). The specially formulated quadraphonic vinyl was pressed and one-step plated at RTI featuring Neotech’s low surface noise, semi-transparent VR900 compound.
