NOTE: i have uncovered some very rare test pressings available of this release. if you are interested, direct message me via the contact link under the contact/help section.
This unique package is a beautiful hand crafted pop-out display style booklet conceived by ACRE collective's Jonathan Canupp(aka Ten and Tracer) and Jason Corder. All the cover artwork was created by Jason Corder using Jared Tarbell's open source flash generative artwork code. Each package is hand made to order by offthesky and of course hand numbered - Takes about an hour to print, cut, glue, and construct each one of these. Due to the personal, conceptual nature of this release, there will be no digital version for sale or distribution ever.
Each CD will contain a different variation of songs created using special generative composition techniques conceived by offthesky - in other words no two cds will ever sound alike! When you purchase a cd, your songs are rendered and burned uniquely after the packaging is constructed. You are the only owner of that iteration of the songs on the record. (also offthesky will delete the .wav file masters making you the sole owner of those song versions).
Printed inside the package is a web address pointing to an "audio gallery" of sorts. Anyone who buys the cd will have access to this gallery and can go there to listen to an array of different variations to get a feel for how each piece is self similar yet different. There will be extended information about the creation process of the songs as well as extras goodies to downloads.
This record has been released with the help of the ACRE collective in Denver Colorado. ACRE is a group of visual artists, musicians, and writers from around the world working together.
And last but not least, if you purchase the "iterate i" EP, you will receive a code/link to download another free EP - informally titled "gift i".
this is a generative piece of music programmed and created for the iterative i offthesky release. each cd sold will contain a different version, or iteration, of this song - therefore no two cds will contain the same version of this song.
there is a link included within the cd artwork that will allow the purchaser of the cd to visit and listen to each and every iteration created. there will only be 50 iterations of this song created.
