"Vacant Integument is the debut release from NY resident Joshua Convey. Sharp, spiky overtones rattle four skillfully assembled tracks. Each gritty frame is lined with a delicate array of guitar, harmonica and electronics. Quiet drone hums along as melody slowly reveals itself amongst carefully placed shards of raw feedback and noise. Not since Kaoru Abe or Masayoshi Urabe has the harmonica been used to such magnificent effect. Vacant Integument is a singular and resonant work that deserves all manner of praise.
The Utech Records Arc Series represents an alliance born from a mutual respect between the label and photographer Max Aguilera-Hellweg. The releases are designed by Utech and will constitute the label's first fine art series. A selection of sound artists are slated to release music. All items will be hand assembled in a package exclusive to the series and limited to editions of five hundred, issued every six to eight weeks. Nine volumes are scheduled for release in 2007."-Utech
