Each record comes alongside an original acrylic painting by Roberto Opalio (one half of My Cat Is An Alien) on 30x30cm proper canvas, with a unique Polaroid installed on each piece, representing 100 different perspectives of a same subject.
Vol.I features a special Text Of Light's track entitled "033103 Paris", recorded live at Centre Georges Pompidou in DUAL MONO; the LP will be out in early October 2006, while a regular CD re-issue will follow some months later -- contacts & pre-orders here: spaceis@mycatisanalien.com

Here the official press release as introduction to the whole series:
"The Italian space brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, aka My Cat Is An Alien, have set up a new series of split art-LPs on their own Opax Records. The series of collaborations, entitled "Cosmic Debris", will see the space duo alongside artists such as Lee Ranaldo's Text Of Light, Steve Roden, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Loren Connors & his Haunted House band. Each volume will be released in a numbered and signed edition of only 100 copies, and will come out with a proper painting on 12"x12" canvas by Roberto Opalio as sleeves, with the addition of an original Polaroid installed on each piece of art, representing 100 different perspectives of a same subject; each volume's photographic subject will be strictly related to the cosmic imaginary of My Cat Is An Alien."

I'm not sure the artwork will be the same as the LP. The Opalio brothers said they will send be a jpg file of the artwork as soon as the have it so I figured it is different.
Anyway, it is only March and there are 3 TOL releases out there. Lee is spoiling us this year.

Yes the LP version (that is sold out now) Opalio brothers attached the acrylic picture. I think the CD contains just that picture as a digital press for CD format. anyway I have not seen it yet.

sometime I try to figure out what could be considered 'something italian', but it's very hard for me that I'm italian.

thanks!

A Silent Place presents:

TEXT OF LIGHT / MY CAT IS AN ALIEN
"Cosmic Debris, Vol.I" CD




label: A SILENT PLACE - cat.nr.: ASP12 - barcode: 8032644745124


CD re-issue of the first instalment in the new "Cosmic Debris" split ART-LP series set up by Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, aka MY CAT IS AN ALIEN. This Volume I sees the two space brothers from Torino, Italy, alongside Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) and his all-star ensemble TEXT OF LIGHT* (here featuring Alan Licht, Dj Olive, Ulrich Krieger and Tim Barnes). Their track "033103 Paris" has been recorded live at Centre Georges Pompidou in 2003 and mixed in dual mono by Ranaldo & Licht at NYC Echo Canyon studio. MCIAA's piece entitled "Everything falls like cosmic debris" is a conceptual ouverture to the whole series, performed in April 2006 at their secret recording space called Alien Zone, located up the Italian Western Alps.
The five-volumes series "Cosmic Debris" features My Cat Is An Alien alongside Text Of Light, Steve Roden, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Loren Connors & his Haunted House band.
Each CD cover artwork reproduces the full image and details of the acrylic paintings created by Roberto Opalio for each copy of the original vinyl edition on MCIAA's own Opax Records.
*CD comes in a digi-sleeve textured cardboard cover.*

*= TEXT OF LIGHT are: Lee Ranaldo (SONIC YOUTH), Alan Licht, DJ Olive (GREGOR ASCH), Ulrich Krieger (ART ZOYD), Tim Barnes (THE TOWER RECORDINGS).


PRESS QUOTES:
"Roberto and his brother Maurizio are the highly advanced lifeforms crewing the mysterious starship that goes by the name of My Cat Is An Alien (MCIAA), plotting a quixotic course through three millennia of cosmic music, from the celestial drones of the Pythagorean monochord onwards, to land up in the gravity-free realm of the No-mind." (Tony Herrington - The Wire / editor-in-chief & publisher)


"Text of Light was formed in 2001 with the idea to perform improvised music during screenings of films by Stan Brakhage and other American avant-garde filmmakers from the 1950s and '60s. These should not be considered soundtracks for Brakhage's works. Rather, the group uses the films as an element to stimulate improvisation, like an additional player, juxtaposing film and music in a real-time performance mixed-media collage. The result is a new chapter in free improv and mixed media." (Bananafish)

Thanks Moshe...
Does anyone know whether the Text of Light track from Paris 0333103 is the same as the one on that is on "Reel 1", the euro tour CDR from 2005?
I assume it's from the same recording (dual mono), but is it the same edit?

Hi Pokkeherrie, I haven't the split cd with MCIAA guys but I think it's the same recording/editing appeared on 'reel 1'
