***Originally released in 2008. The idea was simple: find contemporary artists influenced (however loosely) by James Joyce's style to finally turn the poems into musical works. The only directive was to not mess with the words! Five years in the making comes this epic 36 artist interpretation of James Joyce's 1907 collection of poems, Chamber Music, charting love from innocence to experience. Curated by James Nicholls from the Virgin Passages and with contributions from major established artists (Mercury Rev, Ed Harcourt, Minus 5, Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth with Text Of Light) and cult players (Jessica Bailiff, Gravenhurst, Mike Watt, Bardo Pond), this represents a sweeping but unified expression of Joyce's early, love-hungry verse. Beautifully packaged double slipcase CD and double gatefold vinyl with artwork by Stephanie Black. Other artists include Monica Queen, War Against Sleep, Venture Lift, HTRK, Califone, Owen Tromans, Airport Studies, Mary Lorson, Willy Mason, Noah John, Ian Kearey, David Hurn & Abigail Hopkins, Coldharbourstores, Lori Scacco, Great Depression, Puerto Muerto, Flying Saucer Attack, Sweet Trip, Gerry Mitchell & Little Sparta, Sphyr, Mountain Men Anonymous, Tenebrous Liar, Green Pajamas, Christian Kiefer, Duke Garwood, Lovetones and Kinski.
