BIOTA: The Biota Box
BIOTA: The Biota Box


Without any obvious keystone event, Biota who started recording in the late 1970s as the Mnemonist Orchestra have quietly become a musical fixture, honoured for their uniquely, abstract, layered, polystylistic approach to musical construction - deaf to fashion or possible sales. And it seems, paradoxically, to have been just this art-orientated commercial indifference that has slowly won them loyal followers and surprisingly respectable sales. Now, for a wider audience - and at a congenial price - this box collects five representative releases that span their discography and track the radical evolution of their crystalline aesthetic with added documentation, a band history, insights into their work process, and a full-length bonus CD embroidered from their archive of rare and unreleased material.

Contents: Funnel to a Thread, Half a True Day, Invisible Map, Object Holder and Gyromancy (recorded as the Mnemonist Orchestra), and the box-only bonus Counterbalance. In a sturdy box.
