JULY 17—31
NEW ALBION
CURATED BY FOSTER REED
As Sir Francis Drake, the Elizabethan explorer and pirate, discovered California, New Albion searches for new musical territories. Like a small ship on the ocean, a small press or art gallery; we are blind navigators. With composers and performers we develop, record and release about six titles a year. Our logo is the triangle and the spiral, a compound symbol of strength and motion, of pitch and time, of being here and going there... Once we created an imaginary road sign that we painted and drove to Rte. 50 in the middle of Nevada. There it became our postcard, our place, our mooring.
