about

A behind-the-scenes look at Magical Beautiful when they're not refining their produced records. Cosmic, full group improvisatory pop. Heavy dub rhythms made by samplers & real humans. Sad Bernie Worrell synth-funk. Underwater disco. Arthur Russell as envisaged by King Tubby. Song workshop that functions as finished product.

16 songs in 43 minutes. Originally available on limited-edition cassette as I Hear A New World #10.

Made from Jan2007 - Nov2009 in Chicago at The Shape Shoppe & Hear A New World on computer, tape, multitrackers & field recorders. Engineered by Nick Broste. Produced, mixed & edited by Tyson Torstensen.

*** ALL MUSIC IMPROVISED AND RECORDED LIVE *** except: Chagall's Green has overdubbed synth bass. Rock A While + Horsebreaker + Wings In The Sky were pre-written (but based on improvs and recorded live). Artwork by Chris Schreck. Packaging by Torstensen. Album title by Brian Eno/Peter Schmidt.
