Nicola Catalano @ Radio 3 Italy has put together a program dedicated to a chronological history of 12k. It’s available as a podcast here:
Over a week ago we started an Instagram contest to create photographs inspired by the sound and title of Seaworthy + Taylor Deupree’s forthcoming album “Wood, Winter, Hollow.” Participants were asked to take photographs that they felt captured the mood and atmosphere of this work and three winners were to be chosen to receive a free copy of the CD.

Originally released in 2003, this album featuring Fonica, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Sébastien Roux and Christopher Willits is finally available as a download from the 12k shop.
marcus fischer focuses closely on the fine details of things- his sonic and visual work reveal an unfolding process of meticulous patience and refinement. where this sort of perfection-seeking normally alludes to sparse output, marcus is remarkably prolific in his varied creative practices. we’re not sure he sleeps because we can’t figure out when he gets it all done. beautiful music, glorious treehouses, family adventures, stunning photography- so inspiring.
The new releases are scheduled for mid june and include a collaborative album from Seaworthy and Taylor Deupree called Wood, Winter, Hollow and a live CD from Illuha, Interstices.
After many years of using only PayPal as a payment method in the 12k shop, we’re very happy to announce that you can now check out and pay with any major credit card. This is completely separate from PayPal, not processed or handled by them at all. Of course, we still have PayPal as an option as always.
The two new releases from Marsen Jules and Savvas Ysatis + Taylor Deupree were released on March 5th to some wonderful praise from the press.
