Aqua laden Steampunk novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea gets a fully automated audio soundtrack from library enthusiast and producer/label-owner/rare record extraordinaire Jonny Trunk. Much like his acclaimed Inside Outside and Scrapbook LP's, 20,000 Leagues... blends an exotic cocktail of avant-garde sound source samples, free-rotation-instrumentation and synthesis straight from the bottom of the sea to dazzling effect.
When asked to compose the music as an accompaniment to the book, Jonny said "I’ve been a collector of underwater sounds and soundtracks (think Jacques Cousteau) for many years and this would give me the perfect excuse to make my own subaquatic soundscapes. I hope the results conjure up visions through the Nautilus portholes and strange walking adventures along the sea bed."
From first listen we can say with 100% confidence that this LP will fit perfectly on the shelves of those with everything water related from Alessandro Alessandroni's Biologia Marina LP to Finders Keepers Czech new wave underwater wonder Mala Morska Vila, imagine an acoustic James Stinson Library disc for an idea of the shear breadth of audio treasure hidden within the water of this LP, deep sea blue wax and housed in a beautiful sleeve featuring a vast (sting) array of sailor tattoo's topped off with the original book to read while you listen make this one, a real no brainer. Splash out while ya can, these are sure to float out in no time!
