Brr is a collaboration between Ryan Dodgson and Moshe Rozenberg. In this, their first collaboration, they present ten conversations using three mediums interdependently. The dialogue that takes place between these mediums creates an animate, immersive environment and fragments the viewer / listner's association between the inseparable text, sound and image. This limited artist's multiple comes to you in the form of a book-and-record set. It includes:
— one cover (laid charcoal paper, front and back foil stamped metallized blue)
— two endpapers (bristol blue paper with custom record-pocket die cut)
— thirty two interior pages (pink and blue risograph on parchment paper)
— one seven inch record
— one free digital download card
This edition, limited to 350 copies worldwide is published conjointly by Altin Village & Mine Records (Europe) and Itchy Roof (USA / Canada). It is celebrated as a 50th release milestone for the Altin Village & Mine Imprint as well as the longterm friendship between Moshe Rozenberg and the german based record label.
