PRE-ORDER Expected release date is 3rd May 2024

An edit-reissue of this gargantuan double cassette released back in 2014 under the Typhonian Highlife moniker, H.R. Giger's Studiolo finds netherworld voyager, Spencer Clark, at a particularly beguiling conjunction of his labyrinthine-esque sound world. With complete disregard for linear timelines and trajectories, H.R. Giger's Studiolo finds both inspiration in the Swiss master's vision and the Cenobite iconography previously explored by Clark on Fourth World Magazine's Pinhead in Fantasia. The CD Head Cenobite picture adorning the cover makes the connection more than apparent. A sprawling, two-and-half hour excursion on the tape version, here properly edited down to the wax container, the first two volumes of H.R. Giger's Studiolo are some of Clark's most mystifying recordings. A baroque odyssey through an hermetic maze of alien voices, warping sound effects, oneiric keyboards and a quasi-orchestral sense of space and dynamics, H.R. Giger's Studiolo feels like an hallucinatory fever dream still unlike everything else, either from before or after. Time doesn't apply here, anyway. Mastered by Rashad Becker. Artwork by Spencer Clark. Gatefold.
