K.LEIMER

USELESS EPITOMES

PALACE OF LIGHTS


Format: 2xCDs
Cata No: PoL012019
Barcode: 700261471266
Originally released in 2008, The Useless Lesson and Lesser Epitomes have been revisited, remixed, remastered and expanded with the 40-minute bonus EP
Three Adaptations.
K. Leimer founded Palace Of Lights in 1979. Leimer’s work has also been issued by Autumn, First Terrace, Les Giants, Invisible Inc., Origin Peoples and RVNG
. His early cassette work is included in the critically acclaimed VOD box set
American Cassette Culture and will be included in Cherry Red’s upcoming
Noise Floor series.
Leimer has been actively producing music since the mid 1970s—
his current catalog includes eighteen solo albums plus collaborative
albums with Savant and Marc Barreca. His work is included in the
collection of The British Library.
“Lesser Epitomes provides three short suites of music all composed using a system of chance to give shape to basic musical elements. The listener is then advised to randonly re-order them, creating a vast number of permutations within the set... as brief episodes of grouped strings move past each other with the stately indifference of dancers in a ballroom.” —The Wire
“The opening pieces set the bar remarkably high: ‘To force closed our
eyes’ introduces the album with mournful string patterns that recall
Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3 (aka Symphony of Sorrowful Songs), and
‘Failing need of more,’ a fourteen-minute collaboration by Leimer
and phonographer Anode, billows heavenly like a gargantuan, almost
imperceptibly moving cloud mass. By album’s end, I’m none the
wiser as to how Leimer produced The Useless Lesson but the largely
glorious results speak loudly enough all by themselves.” —Textura
