23 December 2008: information about Aquatint, from our record company Friendly Noise:


1. In 2009 Friendly Noise will release one new artefact every three months. Every release can differ from the previous one; it all depends on what we and our bands/artists want to do. One release can be a CD, another a vinyl, and then a printed object or something else.


2. The artefacts will be released as limited editions. This will, when it's records, be combined with good digital distribution, which means unlimited availability for anyone who wants the music.


3. The artefacts will be manufactured in editions of 300 copies. The price to buy them will, considering the limited editions, still be relatively inexpensive since we no longer will have middle man distributors, and also because we don't do this for profit.


4. It's not until we receive 100 pre-orders that we will send the record to the manufacturing place. If not 100 people are interested in the artefact then we might, if it's music, release it as mp3:s instead. Or not at all.


5. Those who pre-order an artefact will be guaranteed a copy of it, and you will be the first one who gets it. We will also always include an exclusive present, a poster or something similar in the package.


6. All names of those who pre-order will be published on the Friendly Noise website as a gesture of our appreciation of your support. (For those who prefer to be anonymous, just let us know and we'll keep it that way.)

7. The first artefact to be released under these guidelines is "Aquatint", the new, fifth album by Testbild! Following last year's "Une teinte intense", an album light as a mirage, that bridges pop, jazz and exotica in the sun-bleached deserts of North Africa, "Aquatint" is, instead, an outburst of underwater inspiration.


8. A taster of "Aquatint" was released as an mp3 single on December 5th: "My Brother the Submariner" / "Garnet Brand Land", and here's detailed information on what to expect from "Aquatint".


9. Be an early adopter, and be one of the 100 pre-orderers, at our shop.


10. Hopefully "Aquatint" will be manufactured, released and delivered during January 2009.
Thank you for your interest!
