Here it is, Deadheads, the ultimate "Dark Star" is now on vinyl. Deluxe
audiophile pressing cut in Toronto under the watchful ears of John Oswald.
Heavy-duty triple gatefold jacket includes liner-notes by musicologist Rob
Bowman and interviews with Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Robert Hunter, plus six
"time maps" which chart the source concerts of "Dark Star." Music performed by
The Grateful Dead (c) Grateful Dead Productions Inc. & Ice Nine Publishing Inc.
Taken from over 100 performances of "Dark Star" recorded between 1968 and 1993,
original recordings of the Grateful Dead in performance have been processed
using Plunderphonic techniques - built, layered and "folded" to produce one
large, new re-composed "Dark Star."
Plunderphonics is a term coined by composer John Oswald in 1985 in his essay
Plunderphonics, or Audio Piracy as a Compositional Prerogative. It has since
been applied to any music made by taking one or more existing audio recordings
and altering them in some way to make a new composition. Plunderphonics can be
considered a form of sound collage.
"Grayfolded is literally a hundred or so great nights rolled into one
extraordinary extended high. Gorgeous sonic origami." - Rolling Stone
"An extended time-warped psychedelic jam that is meticulously hallucinatory."
- New York Times
"Rightly acclaimed as the ultimate 'Dark Star,' the one you had always hoped
the Dead would one day get around to playing." - London Daily Telegraph
"Even casual Dead fans will be floored by this astonishing new project.
Absolutely brilliant." -Toronto Sun
