Gruenrekorder proudly presents „songs for forgetting“ by Patrick McGinley AKA murmer
To make this project come true we need your support on Kickstarter

Since 2007 sound, performance and radio artist Patrick McGinley, AKA murmer worked on his first full-length solo release since 2012: songs for forgetting.
In 2016 Gruenrekorder will release this 45min LP of great field recordings from Germany, France, Spain and Estonia as a Vinyl-LP.

The project has a unique story:

The ca. 45 minutes of recordings are going to be released on a 180g heavy vinyl. Delivered with a unique sleeve, produced by friends and supporters of the artist Patrick McGinley, the whole project support a creative community in Estonia, where Patrick lives with his family. The outer sleeve, designed by the Armenian illustrator Vahram Muradyan, will be produced from 100% locally-sourced recycled card from the oldest continuously-operating industry in the country, the Räpina Papermill and be printed, locally as well, on the historical machines at studio.tartuensis…

We need your support to make this project coming true!

We are aiming to create an artwork as visually worthwhile as the audio it contains. This involves paper, vinyl, printing, love and time. For it to be worthwhile, we need to know there is an audience for a physical release in these days of digital, online media. By backing this project you help to bring it into the world. Without your support and appreciation, it just can’t happen.

By supporting our project you will receive amazing rewards, like the record itself, a handmade designed tote-bag, a special self-made item from Patrick’s home in põlgaste…

Visit Kickstarter and support this really great project, so we can make
an object that looks and feels as good as it sounds.…s-for-forgettin
