The wintry conditions in the uplands of north east England have provided the ideal environment for the corrosive weathering of 0.9 mm sheet steel. Random and beautiful rust patination has been forming on several hundred folded plates that will become the outer sleeves for the compact disc re-release of Patina Pooling.
Until now the album, originally released by alt.vinyl 13 months ago, has only been available as a limited run double vinyl LP, similarly packaged in rusting metal.
Patina Pooling developed from an extended collaboration between Zoviet France and Fossil Aerosol Mining Project.
More than a remix / exchange project, it has been a real collaboration resulting in an album of exploratory call and response, a mesmeric hybrid of our shared fascination with the residual, both real and metaphorical.
The CD re-release replicates the original LP packaging, includes all of the recordings featured on it and weighs noticeably less than the 2kg of its vinyl counterpart.
