Panoptique Electrical is both an experimental studio project by Jason Sweeney, based in Adelaide, Australia, and instrumentalist collaboration with electronic and classical musicians Zoë Barry, Jed Palmer, Tristan Louth-Robins, Cailan Burns, Noah Symons and Richard Adams and visual artist Steve Phillips. While in the last decade Jason Sweeney has made Panoptique Electrical his central focus, for about twenty years he has been composing and recording either solo, under the alias of Other People’s Children and Simpático, or with friends in various musical projects like Pretty Boy Crossover, Sweet William, School of Two, Luxury Gap, Par Avion, Madeline’s Wreath, God Burning System, Great Panoptique Winter and Mist & Sea. For almost a decade he has also been composing sound and music scores for live theatre, dance, film/video and installation projects. Disappearing Music For Face is another outstanding release from Panoptique Electrical that generates many emotional reactions. It’s a collection of eleven brilliant compositions of gentle piano with small touches of minimalist electronic beats, echoing keys and soft swells of heavily reverbed drones. The beauty of this album will truly captivate the audience of both ambient pioneers like Brian Eno and Harold Budd and artists like A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Labradford and mid period Hood recordings. This is a limited edition of 200 handmade and hand-numbered collectible copies. It is packaged in a lovely hand-stamped 127mm x 127mm 260 gsm pale brown cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper and two inserts with the tracklist and the credits printed on a 190 gsm reddish-brown cardboard. It also comes bundled with a download code coupon and a Sound In Silence card.
