RADIANCE is a new work by Stephan Mathieu, available as a limited 12CD box and digital edition on a subscription basis, and will be released in twelve instances between May 2016 and April 2017. 

RADIANCE comprises twelve new album-length pieces, some of them long-term projects dating back to 2008, while others are recent works-in-progress, such as Mathieu’s dedications to Morton Feldman and Earle Brown which will premiere in September 2016. 

Each piece follows the concept of stasis, the unfolding of time and sustained frequencies, deep listening, and immersive soundscapes. The sequence for the whole set is conceived as one long, growing composition in twelve parts. 

RADIANCE is exclusively available from Schwebung.


The releases come in a physical and a digital edition:

RADIANCE Digital Edition


12 new album-length releases
24-bit lossless + any format of your choice
Each part comes with a PDF booklet


RADIANCE 12CD Box
Limited Edition of 150 Copies
+ Digital Edition


12 CDs 
Custom made slipcase and CD wallets
12 postcard inserts
A 36*48 cm fold-out print

Both editions are available through this campaign to help financing the manufacturing costs for the limited 12CD box, packaging material for a secure shipping, and the Kickstarter fees. 

The pre-order for the digital edition is €59 and the custom made 12CD box is €99 + shipping.

Please remember that your credit card won't be charged before the end of this campaign, which is April 2. 2016

DESIGN AND PRODUCTION

The design for RADIANCE was developed by Caro Mikalef for Cabina. The 12CD box consists of a slipcase and twelve CD wallets custom-made from black, heavyweight cardboard with individually designed, industrial-grade aluminium foil stickers. Each box includes a set of twelve postcards and a numbered and signed 36*48 cm fold-out print with release notes and an essay by Petar Milat

The box is handcrafted by master bookbinder and restorer Marita Kuhn.

The boxes will be manufactured during May and June so that they are ready to ship worldwide with the first two CDs and postcards in early July 2016. You will receive 10 more CDs in 4 shipments until April 2017.

The Digital Edition comes with a PDF booklet for each of the twelve parts, a new album will be released every second half of a month from May 2016 on. The digital edition for RADIANCE is included with the 12CD box, download codes are sent out from Schwebung Bandcamp as soon as a new piece is uploaded.

We look forward to updating this page with sketches and photos from the design and manufacturing process in the coming weeks and months.
