This release, following solid efforts out on the reputable Kye and Hanson labels, is due out later in the year on Vitrine, the private imprint started in 2013 by Good Area members Allen Mozek and Gabi Losoncy. Vitrine has been slowly issuing works from other like-minded artists dealing in primitive electronics, tape manipulation, sound poetry, and noise. On this episode, we be spoke with Allen about the work that he’s doing with Vitrine, along with the sound work that he is doing under the name No Intention and with Good Area. You will also hear several selections from the Vitrine catalog throughout, including some other new and forthcoming releases and a few other Philadelphia-related artists that Allen provided. If you are interested in checking out further sound clips, you can head over to the Vitrine YouTube page.
