Press Release:

Prototypes is a collection of uniquely mixed and edited original tracks and outtakes from future collaborative Home Normal releases. Mixed and edited by Aki Sallas, Sif Sandersen, and Ian Hawgood, the work includes unique tracks by Christopher Hipgrave, Sif Sandersen, Ahti Ijäs, Aki Sallas, Miki Laa, Tsone, Uthai Montri, Ian Hawgood, and Maarit Maaja. 

'Prototypes' is a unique glimpse at some long-term projects we have been working on with an eye very much on the collaborative future of the label, working with some exciting new and emerging artists. The 'prototypes' on display are a demo glimpses into a ten year project we have undertaken before Home Normal was even set-up. The series will culminate in a ten disc release in 2015, encompassing over ten years of collaboration through posted reels from a variety of artists who all share a love for tape. The reels will have made their way around the world over this period, from Japan to Argentina, Finland to Mexico, Iceland to China, in a truly nomadic way.
