Album printing will engaged one of the most minimalistic forms of CD print to date, utilizing Atomic Disc's Eco Disk printing technology and virtually 2D jacket demonstrated well just below of their breakthrough minimalistic disc production.
Atomic discs most eco friendly aspect is the removal of glue from CD cases. It is a true breakthrough, a possibility right in front of our eyes for so long but somehow never utilized.
Breaking all the basic languages barriers... one step at a time, the Human Conditions EP is more than the 1st installment, it is a statement not about what music should be, but rather what it can be.
Intarsia Transethnic Arts brings to you music that breaks all kinds of barriers, one of the positive forces bringing things such as Bollywood films to Hollywood, decentralizing our aesthetic orientations and lending a hand to transform people into even more cosmopolitan music connoisseurs.
