In Autumn of 2017, the very first Ashcan catalog item was produced - a limited multi-disc collection of longform ambient and drone music bearing the title Bronzeworks, which contained seven previously issued recordings (Yellowed / Compost Springtime Shed / Forcefield / Train Line Triads / Foxfur / Starshield / V.R.H.) augmented by this piece, a previously unreleased recording culled from the Rolling Knoll archives, functionally designated the "Bronzeworks Faceplate." This set was created, much like the rest of the Ashcan catalog that followed it, out of a desire to use recycled and off-cut materials discarded in the workshop during the material assembly part of putting new releases and designs together, to reduce waste and be creative about it. It was not privately commissioned, but it was offered first to a specific patron who had expressed interest in things like this, and they purchased it before the only copy of Bronzeworks was ever able to be made available to the public. (For context, this download comes with photographs of the Bronzeworks set before it was shipped out.) So, almost three years later, with the pandemic sweeping the globe, and digital music taking precedence over physical editions, I am publishing the Faceplate here for everyone to enjoy in the hopes that it will bring some comfort and peace to listeners who could certainly use it. Sonically speaking, the Faceplate was recorded using guitar feedback and possibly Lowrey organ on a four-track Tascam 414 tape machine in the Rolling Knoll studio, sometime between 2009-2011. It was left as unnamed and undated on one of many such tapes that were then rediscovered upon moving to Ohio in 2016.
