New beginnings: proun press

Hello!

Omar Akrouche and I are starting a label called “Proun Press”

Here is a statement about the label:

“Proun press is founded upon the idea of creative construction of form through economic construction of transformed material. Proun is a movement along the stations of creative concreteness but not comprehension or the explanation of life. The path of proun press is pure experienced action.” (excerpts from el lissitzky’s proun manifesto)

”Headlands" by Gianni Andreatta will be available for pre-order on the Proun Press bandcamp tomorrow. The official release will be on 3/1. We will be sharing the album’s first track, “Garfield” alongside a hand-processed super 8 film by Nolan Barry.

More to come! If you use instagram, here is where you can find us there!

“quiet for quiet” by fightmaster is officially out on bandcamp and available on all streaming services.

we are so excited to have this record out!as it has been roughly 3 years in the making, this record means a lot to the three of us. inspired by driving around at night and the way lights look at night, this record moves from fluttering melodies to swelling guitar loops (this record is full of op-1 loops, guitar loops, loads of delay/reverb, and some other synthesizer stuff)! there are a handful of tapes up for grabs on bandcamp, so make sure to act fast before they are gone!

I received the email notification of release, but when I attempt to download, it appears only the pre-order track is available?
