Any degree of singing talent is welcomed.
There are 3 short pieces, each has a video-score to follow. The scores use universal musical dictation, accessible to all.
Simply record your voice, in the best fidelity available to you, and send along the audio files – which will be woven and edited together.
Email seantristanmccann at gmail dot com to participate.
I need to thank all who have supported Recital over the past year. It has been a grand one.
2016 is lined up to have the busiest release schedule yet for Recital, ranging from books to CDs to LPs.
And wine glasses.
The first set of releases (in January) are two books:
Those are available now for Pre-order, and will ship in the first two weeks of January.
Following further in the year… a Loren Connors reissue LP (a sister to Airs), archival Italian sound poetry LPs, an American gamelan LP/CD, and at long last my own Music for Public Ensemble 2xLP (amongst many others).
Would like to extend thanks to Mark Harwood, Graham Lambkin, Scott Foust, Allen Mozek, Jordan Spencer, Nick Storring, Ian William Craig, Enzo Minarelli, Andrew Chalk, Tom Scott, Zach Schwartz, Cameron Stallones, Rob Magill, Matthew Sullivan, Alex Gray, & Maxwell Croy for their correspondence and support for Recital.
Additionally, to Tiny Mix Tapes, The Wire, Mojo, & A Closer Listen (amongst many other press outlets).

If interested in picking up a copy of Ian’s new LP, Cradle for the Wanting, you can Purchase one through Recital, or through one of our Distributors (who are receiving their copies very soon.) The Deluxe edition has sold out, and many of the remaining copies have been spoken for.
And here is some visual-fanfare to welcome Ian’s new LP.
*Note that the soundtrack is not just one piece, but an overview that cleverly stitches together three works from Cradle.
In other Recital news, Sean McCann’s book, Pacifics, will be made available in late November. Followed by a fascinating new work, Romanzi nelle i (Book + cd/dvd) by Italian sound poet Enzo Minarelli.
In time for Halloween and the fall winds, we are pleased to publish Idea Fire Company’s lovely new LP, Lost at Sea.
I can already imagine it: a cold evening, candles, syrupy glass of red wine, and this LP. What more could you ask for?
Also, this advertisement came to shore, give it a squint.
Two LPs left for 2015. There will be a book or two later in the year, but that is a different story. For now, feast your eyes on these two albums. You can Pre-order the Deluxe edition of Ian William Craig’s LP now.
There are two Recital-related nights of music in Los Angeles this August.
Firstly, Ian William Craig’s first live performance in California (perhaps in all of America, too?)
Below is the flyer; I will be pouring some lavish drinks to help raise funds for Ian’s travels…
if you are in the area please do consider attending.

SECONDLY, I will be performing live for the first time (publicly) in two years’ time on August 9th. Come hear drafts from Music for Public Ensemble and excerpts from the book I am working on.
