Neil Feather Box Set

This box set contains two LPs and a color booklet of the many experimental musical instruments of Neil Feather w/ wonderfully diverse duets

Overview

This box set will illuminate the diverse array of experimental musical instruments invented by Neil Feather. Included will be duets with collaborators such as Jason Willet (Half Japanese), M.C. Schmidt (Matmos), Rosie Langabeer (Zircus), Dan Breen, Dan Conrad, Eric Franklin and John Berndt

The box form with booklet is inspired by Harry Partch’s 1971 release of Delusion of the Fury. It included an LP and booklet illustrating each of Partch’s instruments. This box set inspired me and changed my life more than any other work of art.

I humbly follow Partch’s footsteps after 45 years of inventing musical instruments.
