about

Aphelion Editions is ecstatic to at long last present the opening two volumes in what will hopefully be an ongoing series of 'Selected Aphelion Works' compilations.

This 21-track sprawling 2 hour epic has been a long time coming and is the culmination of numerous friendships forged over the years through touring, promoting shows, running the label and attending events, both local and international. It brings together myriad strands from Aphelion's beginnings as an organiser of niche underground concerts in Bristol through to its present focus as a label producing limited runs of cassettes and cd-rs in bespoke hand-crafted packaging.

For me, personally, it's something of a love letter to the network of talented, generous and compassionate people that exists and thrives within the vital musical underground that runs throughout europe, the uk and well beyond, and that has helped and continues to help this label to find and develop its own sense of purpose and identity.

The artwork for this release was created by my talented father, Ian, who made collages out of various old Aphelion gig posters and cassette J-cards from previous releases, to which he added additional textural elements with acrylic paint. These then formed the basis of the images that you see adorning the cassette and CD sleeves/packaging - some used as-is, others further layered up within the computer, toying with ideas of moving back and forth along timelines, converging elements of past, present and perceived future, recycling and recombining to create new forms from old.

My eternal thanks are due to everyone involved for such powerful contributions and for making this what it is.

Here's to another exciting chapter for Aphelion Editions. DIVE IN.

REVIEWS:
--------------
"Aphelion Editions presents the first two instalments in its 'Selected Aphelion Works' compilation series. ‘Selected Aphelion Works Vol. I & II’ - a sly nod to Richard D. James there - sees the Bristol-based label bring together nearly two-dozen cuts of electronic music which ranges from ambient to abrasive noise to sticky, broken beats. Marlo Eggplant and Viridian Ensemble are among the contributing artists." NORMAN RECORDS
www.normanrecords.com/records/184805-various-selected-aphelion-works-vol-i

"...as such this is a loving tribute to that very same underground. Fuck those reviewers... It is an interesting bunch, of which highlights were the post-punk improvisation of Tetkov/Lord, the drum machine improvisation by Brown Ward, the hissy classical music loops by Cheval Scintillantes, Ellen Southern's singing, Silver Stairs Of Ketchikan's guitar strumming, ambient house (well...) by Zoom Around Rainbow, and Adi's found sound in 'Bars'. The overall range is from noise to ambient, with the first seemingly having the upper hand, I would think." FRANS DE WAARD, VITAL WEEKLY 1263
