More Info

An inaugural compilation of new music
from RVNG Intl., Salutations observes
and elevates the nature of meetings,
greetings, group assemblies and
exercises along the invisible plane
created through correspondence.
The question of how similar we are
arises in the simple form of contact,
and how we choose to embrace the
potential of that moment and one
another. Through correspondence,
we connect, communicate, and form
community. At first, correspondents with
one another, and through the processes
of collaboration and transmission, we
correspond to parallel and intersecting
collective cores.
This eternal network, perhaps
informed (consciously or subconsciously)
by some celestial or spiritual force,
becomes a portal to practice social
responsibility and an access point to a
wider, inclusive universe of information.
In turn, the network becomes a human
phenomenon, as well as a potent
demonstration of art and collectivism.
As the world hurts, heals, and evolves
through change, having this network in
place provides a vessel to and grow /
glow beyond our corporeal state.
Salutations features twelve pieces
of new music from artists near and
dear to RVNG’s sphere, including Isik
Kural, Satomimagae, vhvl, Visible
Cloaks, Sign Libra, Dialect, Batu,
Anna Homler, Diatom Deli, Emily A.
Sprague, Rachika Nayar and Nina
Keith, and Wayne Phoenix. The
vinyl edition expands on the spirit of
correspondence with poetry readings by
Zoe Brezsny, Ivanna Baranova, Tessa
Bolsover, Jessica Rae Elsaesser, and
Luciá Hinojosa Gaxiola, assembled by
Breszny and RVNG.
Inspired in part by a collaboration
with Adult Swim, the limited edition
Record Store Day 2022 exclusive
pressing on coke bottle clear vinyl also
includes a printed insert and a high
quality, multi-format digital download.
