Courier Sound is proud to present the Eumig EP, which is a collection of 7 tracks inspired by the chance finding of a 1965 Eumig 'Electric R' camera back in 2014. Mechanical and somewhat utilitarian in nature, this object led artist and musician Nick Dawson to record a series of intense ambient drones, like concentrating on the mechanisms within the camera or staring into the sun though one of its rotating lenses.
Each track is a unique improvisation, recorded in a single take, using an Arturia MiniBrute routed through a Boss ME70 effects unit and a Strymon Big Sky reverb unit. The track titles make reference to different parts of the camera.
Eumig was mastered by the exceptionally talented Ed Rome at www.slamdoorstudios.co.uk and the image accompanying the release is a rubber stamp of the Eumig camera itself, cut by Martin Salway. The recycled sleeve was then hand printed by Nick.
