    Drifting in outerspace, the solar phone is ringing, static transmissions from afar... Please Pick Up...

    For its 7th release, IO SOUND presents nine reworks of Pinkcourtesyphone, the industrialist / ambient face of microsound composer and LINE label director Richard Chartier. On Line 1, twelve acclaimed sound artists from across the planet attend to the lost transmissions of Pinkcourtesyphone, creating a haunting work of interstellar ambiance, spaced-out deep techno, and industrialist IDM. Expect fully immersive audio from our earthly cousins on Raster-Noton, 12k, Dragon’s Eye, and Sandwell District.

    On Line 2, Pinkcourtesyphone joins forces with Kid Congo Powers of The Cramps, The Gun Club, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Kid speaks with just a hint of malice in his voice, torturing the strange disco of diva Amanda Lear: “I am a photograph... I am in colour and softly lit, overexposed and well blown-up”.

    IO SOUND transmits to you a new echo from outer space: an industrialist retouch of haunted techno, industrialist IDM, outerspace ambiance and darkwave house.



    LINE 1: The Pink Hit of Space
    a collection of reworks of Pinkcourtesyphone works from Foley Folly Folio and Elegant & Detached

    6. “here is something… that is nothing” (Yann Novak + Robert Crouch rework)

    LINE 2: Phototrash
    a incredibly loose dark reinterpretation of Amanda Lear’s “I am a photograph” and the sleazy track “Move to Trash” featuring the vocal stylings of fellow Aries Kid Congo Powers (The Cramps, The Gun Club, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and so much more!).

    7. “iamaphotograph” – Pinkcourtesyphone + Kid Congo Powers
    8. “iamaphotograph” (Creepy Autograph mix) – Pinkcourtesyphone + Kid Congo Powers
