2 x CD
1 x 3" mcd

1 x key ring

21 years after the birth of the project F.L.D. this celebration box sees the light, containing almost entirely (except for a handful of pieces anyway rare) unreleased tracks, which for various reasons have not found place among the official releases of the project. This is study material painstakingly retrieved from demo tapes now ruined, drastic experimental reworkings of official releases, unfinished unreleased material, thematic compositional divertissement, musical tributes, and more.
A collection of sound recordings that somehow sum up the research essence and the evolution of this multifaceted project until now.

46 tracks that trace the history of the project under a totally new and intimate perspective, far from a useless "best of". 
Industrial, power-electronics, musique concrète, dark ambient, apocalyptic folk, alea, childish, soundtrack, avant-garde, experimental voice, minimal,etc...
The essence of F.L.D. it's all here for the first and last time.

NB: CDs are mentioned in the official press-release, though the box contains CD-rs. Collector's edition.

This finely-crafted boxset edition is one of the weirdest albums that includes many genres. The closest comparison of an alike collage atmosphere I can come up to (if not in style than in approach) is En Halvkokt I Folie "The Totally Out Music Of" (CMI.14), only if the latter is indeed bold and hilarious, the former is introspective and melodramatic. I presume that those 80 hand numbered copies are exactly for some 80 open-minded folks out there who are keen to celebrAct the 21st B-Day of the project's rare activities aloof and alone. Also this could be an alternative soundtrack to a rare art house movie. Unconventional.
