Label: SupersenseCelebrating the art/challenge/adventure of pure analog Direct-to-Disc recording, SUPERSENSE started a global search for the “real” musicians left who are ready to perform and record without any digital tricks and second chances. Not an easy task in our digital world.
Pure analog sound waves captured with just our vintage microphones and directly cut into the shimmering surface of our Master Records in real time with a diamond. One take- One original Master Record of no other kind.
Who are the artists who are strong enough to record the real unaltered truth?
SUPERSENSE proudly started the Edition 77 Sessions in Autumn 2014. In addition to the one live Direct-to-Disc cut of every session recorded in our SUPERSENSE Living Room Studio (that goes into the SUPERSENSE vault), we carefully hand cut 76 additional original Master Records of highest quality from the session tape recordings on our lovingly restored Neumann AM32b. Unique originals that are cut in real-time, one by one and without edits into wonderfully fragrant acetate blanks. Usually only accessible for the record companies as master discs for vinyl pressing, these incredibly valuable sound documents are from now on available for all our SUPERSENSE customers and analog sound enthusiast.
Original Session Photograph - Each Edition 77 Master Record includes an original Impossible instant picture of the session, placed in its own Photo slide, protected by tissue paper. Analog instant pictures are the only photographical originals of the world, without the possibility to create additional prints. Therefore each picture is an exclusive original, which captures a unique moment in time (and therefore the perfect match to our original records)
Cover design - Each cover is individually designed and manufactured in close consultation with the musicians right here at the SUPERSENSE Letterpress workshop. Graphics are cut into linoleum by hand and then - together with a fine selection of our antique printing letters - printed on our "Korrex Berlin special" printing machine, piece by piece.
Liner Notes / Equipment Notes - Even the information about the artist, the recording, the photography, as well as the numbering of the editions are applied by hand and with the help of a custom made rubber stamp, one by one.
Packaging / Paper - For optimal protection of the record and the perfect combination of all components of these editions we have developed an elaborate, two-part slide cassette, made of the finest Materica paper from Fedrigoni. Also this packaging is assembled and filled by hand, right here at the palace.
