Special packaging with 20 page booklet. Parallel Landscapes is the first solo full-length album from Swiss artist Steinbrchel on 12k, despite his relationship with the label and appearances on compilations, collaborations (Status, with Frank Bret Schneider (12k1033)) and EP releases (Mit Ohne, (12k2010)). You can say that Steinbrchel was waiting for the right moment to release such an illustrious album that is not only a release of music but of visual art as well. Parallel Landscapes consists of a compact disc and a beautifully printed XX page booklet designed and conceptualized by Steinbrchel with photographs from Taylor Deupree and an essay by Lawrence English. Together these are housed in a slipcase printed inside and out on contrasting paperstocks with the project entirely visualized in black and white. The music on Parallel Landscapes was created with the design process in mind. Steinbrchel thought about the ideas of designing music instead of making, or writing, music and about the importance of music existing with (or without) visual reinforcement.
