C93 Soft Black Stars Sheet Music In Digital Edition And Print Edition
We are OverMoon to announce a beautiful digital publication of the sheet-music of C93’s SOFT BLACK STARS album, transcribed by Savva Terentyev. This is being published with the full co-operation of Michael Cashmore and David Tibet, and both Michael and David have written introductions to the edition. Their introductions, and Savva Terentyev's foreword, are printed in English and in a Russian translation. This is the first official publication of sheet-music of C93’s work. It will be followed by a printed edition in April. For more information, go here.
The publisher’s press release follows:
Dear Sir, Dear Lady
Today we put on sale the digital edition of our very first project with Current 93, which is a complete piano and vocal transcription of their Soft Black Stars album.
The transcription offers the most precise musical notation available of how exactly the piano and vocal parts were performed on this album.
This is the ultimate source for one who wishes to follow the original recording, and to go deeper and higher and further to these Stars.
One can study the music through these pages, whose layout is arranged especially for printing out in A4 format. For an even Starrier experience, we suggest obtaining the printed edition, which is designed specifically to use for playing these works on the piano.
The printed edition of Soft Black Stars offers piano notation and the lyrics (but not the vocal lines). It is not a transcription, but rather a compilation of the essential piano parts composed by Michael Cashmore and manifested on paper at our publishing house. It provides a complete overview of which melodies and harmonies each song from Soft Black Stars should be improvised around, “to create your own stars” as David Tibet writes. It was, indeed, in this way that the Soft Black Stars were created during the recording sessions and in concerts. The printed edition will be out in April 2017; pre-orders are now being taken.
Both editions include exclusive introductions written by David Tibet and Michael Cashmore, as well as an editor’s note with explanations and additional information. The editions are bilingual, in the original English and with the Russian translations provided.
