  • Poster/Print

    A limited edition poster to accompany the release for the first time on CD of Fibolae (2017). In an edition of just 40 copies this A2 (420 x 594 mm) poster is printed on matte paper stock, with a smooth, glare-free finish on 135gsm weight paper.

    The poster features a reworking of the original LP packaging, by British designer Matthew Shaw, and features explanatory texts of each of the tracks on the album.

    This item cannot be combined with other purchases, because of the size of the packaging. Please don’t try to do this, or else your order will be cancelled and refunded, just letting you know!

    UK orders will now all be posted through Royal Mail, which is unfortunately more expensive than courier services but given the appalling service from these companies I need to work with a dependable company.

about

Originally released on Pomperipossa Records (2017), the label run by Swedish musician Anna von Hausswolff.

With a catalogue busy with commissions, soundtracks and strange projects this was Scanner's first studio album since 2009’s Rockets, Unto the Edge of Rockets (Bine Music). In this time much has changed – he lost his entire family and left the comfort of a familiar city, London, to live in a former textile factory in the UK to re-invent his life.

Fibolae offers up a world that splinters between melancholia and penetrating energy. Combining digital technologies, software and live instrumentation Fibolae is both a rhetoric of mourning and a celebration of music to empower. Warm, organic, sensual, passionate and frequently angry, it’s an album that radiates with possibilities.
