"The invalidObject Series was established in 2000 as a sublabel of Fällt to release a finite series of twenty four 3"CD/.mp3 releases. Offering a unique perspective on a diverse range of musical output at the turn of the millennium the Series features work by some of the most respected artists operating within the field of '.microsound'. Each 3" CD is housed in a full-size clear jewel-case with two-colour (Pantone metallic and black) packaging and limited to 250 copies only."
an excellent collection of audio sculptures, lowercase sound works, and minimalist electronic music - all the composers contribute varied, thoughtful, formally and conceptually cohesive and sometimes thematic works. due to the format - fifteen 1 minute tracks (consistent for all editions) - a lot of fun can be had with the random shuffle function.
