FIRST VINYL RELEASE EVER

LIMITED EDITON OF 500 COPIES

A reissue of Strategic Structures by Robert Rauschenberg, Kat Epple, and Bob Stohl, originally released in 1989. Available for the first time on vinyl, this is powerful instrumental music performed by the three on electronics, and a series of musical metal sculptures called "Strategic Structures".

The sounds range from other-worldly, foreboding resonant tones, to angelic, celestial timbres. These spontaneous compositions were created and performed live, with no overdubs, late one night in 1989 at Rauschenberg's beach house on Captiva Island, Florida. It was a magical night, an inspired collaboration, in an exhilarating setting.

The sculptures themselves were a collaborative artwork created by Stohl and Epple, with renowned visual artists, Lawrence Voytek and Rauschenberg.
