Jim O'Rourke and Christopher Heemann team up on Plastic Palace People Vol. I

King of Prolificness Jim O’Rourke has teamed up with Christoph Heemann (Mirror, Mimir, H.N.A.S.) for a new record titled Plastic Palace People Vol. I. The album is a sound documentation of the working relationship between Heemann and O’Rourke that dates back to 1991, described as “a mix of granular synthesis and concrete sounds, drawing from a wide-range of of interests and backgrounds, reshaped and reassembled after all these years.” It’s also been described as a “heavy, spooky, three-part journey,” which, hey, kinda sounds like the last decade.

Heemann, who has also worked with O’Rourke (and Lee Ranaldo) in the past on Bloomington, Indiana…Autumn, will be releasing the album February 22 on his own Streamline Records, with distribution by Drag City.
