Now available digitally on Bandcamp for the first time in over 20 years.
The Music for Séances series was a joint project between Rob V. at The Sound-O-Mat and Clark Whittington at Art*O*Mat from 2001-2004.
It consisted of 13 ambient / downtempo tracks by 13 artists packaged in a cigarette pack-sized box, each containing a small rectangular CDR decorated as a vintage talking board, a 1940's-style "insert" info poster and a tiny planchette. 50 copies of each release were produced and vended by Art*O*Mat and an additional 30 copies were available for sale directly from The Sound-O-Mat.
All copies were sold out by 2010.
