Cat. No. : LAD011
Love All Day is proud to present a limited double LP reissue of a one of a kind, completely original collection of songs created by two American expatriates living in London in 1980. Recorded in their living room on a Teac tape machine, Synthesis was entirely composed and performed on a mail order Serge synthesizer kit that Planetary Peace (the husband and wife duo of Will & Kalima Sawyer) had built themselves. Originally pressed in a minuscule edition that was mostly given away to friends and colleagues, this brilliant piece of work was almost entirely unknown until Sound Recorder/Record Collector Brett Becker chanced upon one of the only known copies in existence at the yard sale of a former New Age disc jockey in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2014. There’s a very palpable DIY–vibe that runs throughout the album, which gets filtered through a visionary lens where slightly off–kilter devotional folk songs expand into majestic synth excursions that reach for the outer edges of the cosmos. It’s a strange, beguiling collection of songs where two kindred spirits are operating simultaneously on a higher plane, unlike any other ostensibly "new age" album we can think of –especially in the the way that it so embodies such a sense of wonder. Now living in Ha’iku, Hawaii on the island of Maui, they operate an organic farm and have carried on their DIY roots by creating a solar powered studio they built themselves in which they continue to record to this day.
This limited edition LP features a silkscreened jacket, risograph insert and remastered audio by Jae–soo Yi of Sonority Mastering.
