Hand Painted, Sprayed, Stenciled & Stamped Limited Edition 1/100 12"
Record/Vinyl + Digital Album
The music of Mark Spn will be pressed on 100 records with a white label and a white record sleeve. Artist John Tsombikos will use them to create unique art pieces on a canvas comprising of 9 or 12 blank record covers each. These pieces will be individually documented and displayed online when complete. Afterwards, one record from each "canvas" will be sent out randomly to one of eleven different record stores around the globe, thus breaking up the artwork, so that no one individual can claim ownership to a complete canvas. The image used for the digital release is simply a placeholder for the physical release's end product.

Polyarrythmics is an EP by Mark Spn, a music producer and sound engineer who lives in London. While this is his debut EP under this moniker, he has recorded under various other aliases, one favourite being Holdie Gawn on Sylphe Records.
This release slows things down a notch from Mark's other output. He presents a densely layered work that conjures Herbie Hancock's sextant & Kirk Degiorgio's arps, J. Majik's mermaids & Underdog's attic tapes. It is cerebral and cohesive, made to be consumed as a sum of its parts: found sounds and urban field recordings, hushed Hammond grooves and modulated keys, muffled beats and unsyncopated rhythms, flickering electronics and hovering pianos.
Artist John Tsombikos has been commissioned to provide one-off artwork for the limited edition physical product, to be released in mid March.
