Precision Electro-Acoustics [2 3" CDs]

Maestros: Precision Electro-Acoustics [2 3
Label: Organized Sound Recordings    
Released in: USA    

Maestros is the duo of James Fei and David Novak, who create unusual and surprisingly warm soundscapes using simple, often antiquated, electronic and acoustic equipment without overdubbing. The group takes its name from their Maestro effect unit, which they've converted into a feedback machine.

Limited edition package , two 3-inch discs in a full color, gatefold sleeve (the artists threaten to release this on a single disc once the initial run is gone). Covers are individually silkscreened, and are not factory sealed. Liner notes include more details about recording and sound sources, but here's a rough guide.
