CLOSED SYSTEM POTENTIALS

PALACE OF LIGHTS


Format: LP
Cata No: POL03
Barcode: 700261437675
**INSTOCK NOW**Following the RVNG reissues of A Period Of Review
(ranked the #7 reissue of 2014 by The Wire ) and Artificial Dance
(ranked the #2 reissue of 2015 by The Wire ), Closed System Potentials, recorded in 1979 and originally released in 1980, finds its way back to vinyl in a Completely remastered and expanded edition. The LP includes two previously unreleased tracks, and the download card includes an additional two unreleased tracks, all taken from the original Closed System Potentials sessions.
In their review of A Period of Review
,
Pitchfork said, “These pieces most closely evoke the work of Roedelius and Moebius in Cluster: meditative, wistful, lovely, giving off gentle glimmers of light. In trying to think if the closest American corollary for this set, the possibility emerges that Kerry Leimer is one of the lone examples of American kosmische music, that elegant hybrid that falls somewhere between the Velvets-style mesmerism of Can in
the early ’70s and the placid tones of new age music that arose in the next decade. It’s a sound that applies to mid-’70s Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, the second side of Kraftwerk’s Autobahn , and others.”
K. Leimer founded the Palace of Lights label in 1979.
Leimer’s early work was reissued by Autumn and RVNG in
2014 and 2015, and his early cassette work is in the critically
acclaimed Vinyl On Demand box set American Cassette
Culture . He has been actively producing music since the mid
1970s —his current catalog includes 16 still-in-print albums plus
two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca
.
Leimer’s work is included in the collection of The British
Library.
