John Oswald
Grayfolded: Transitive Axis

Album CA 1994 on Artifact Music label
Electronic and Rock (Psychedelic Rock, Experimental, Prog Rock)

Grayfolded - Part One: Transitive Axis. Tracks 5 and 6 not included on later Artifact Reissue. But tracks 5 and 6 do appear on both Snapper Music 2 CD editions, the Fony 2004 2 CD edition and the double LP Important vinyl edition. Taken from over 100 performances of Dark Star recorded between 1968 and 1993. Built, layered and "folded" to produce one large, new re-composed Dark Star. Original recordings of the Grateful Dead in performance have been processed using Plunderphonic techniques. Grayfolded was originally released as a first single disc only available by mailorder. Purchasers of "Transitive Axis" were then encouraged to subscribe for the second disc "Mirror Ashes". At the beginning, the set was exclusively for purchasers of the first disc and subscribers of the second one but Grayfolded was afterwards regularly distributed as a two-disc set. John Oswald can be contacted c/o Mystery Lab, Box 7 Station P, Toronto, Canada M5S 2S6.
