‘Dead Gulf’ | ANR

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Above is a fresh video for ANR’s ambient track ‘Dead Gulf’, which appeared as the B-Side of our ‘Big Problem’ 7″ on Discosoma Records this past January. The song soundscapes a remixed clip of our ‘Corynactis viridis‘ Natural History film from last year. Video artist Jamie Harley reworks the original clip, effectively transforming the 8mm corallimorph polyp into a anthropomorphic troubadour.

ANR 7″ Record Release on Discosoma Records

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

We are psyched to announce the fourth release in our South Florida-centric 7″ vinyl series; the debut 7″ (‘Big Problem’ / ‘Dead Gulf’) from Miami’s ANR. Typical of our 7″ singles, the record is a limited edition run of 100 copies in black vinyl with individually lino-block printed sleeve art by the band. We have rubber stamped our corallimorph logo onto the b-side of the center-sticker and stamped/ numbered the a-side.

Little Munich in Lake Worth is graciously hosting the 7″ release party this Saturday, January 15th, featuring live sets from ANR, Beings, the band in Heaven, and Sumsun. We will have the record for sale for $8 at the release party and at the run of ANR performances supporting Washed Out the following week (including a Miami show). A portion of the remaining records will be going to Rough Trade’s London shop and to Sweat Records in Miami. The rest will be available at the Discosoma Records site after January 15th.

‘Artificial Reef’

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

We are infinitely excited to announce our first public art project: Artificial Reef, a nightly projection series showcasing local coral reef-life in massive scale on prominent buildings across Miami Beach from December second to the fifth. The concrete used in constructing these buildings is largely composed of the pulverized fossils of coral and marine life that once colonized South Florida when submerged in millennia past. The Artificial Reef projections will “encrust” and “colonize” the Wolfsonian Museum, the 407 Building, and the Art Deco Welcome Center facades like rocks of the reef. Artificial Reef has been made possible by a generous grant from the Knight Foundation.

During the week/end we will have an accompanying solo show of of our multi-media works at the Art Deco Welcome Center. Video loops, photography and projections will be shown. The opening reception for Artificial Reef will take place at the Art Deco Welcome Center on Friday, December 3rd from 8PM – 12AM. We are additionally psyched to host special live “soundscape” performances by ANR and Sumsun during the reception, with an accompanying collage of our Natural History films curated and affected by video artist Jamie Harley. The video collaboration will be projected onto the bands as they perform. We will have complimentary Prestige beer at the reception.
