On October 23rd, Gold Bolus Recordings is pleased to release New Haven-based instrumentalist Carl Testa's new album entitled Sⁿ. The recording is a collaboration with Chicago-based guitarist Christopher Riggs and features a 40 minute long piece for prepared electric guitar and live electronic processing. Throughout the piece, Riggs's guitar is electronically manipulated through a variety of time delay techniques into a multichannel speaker setup using custom computer software written by Testa. Building off of works by Robert Ashley, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Evan Parker, and Anthony Braxton, Sⁿ is a work that manipulates one's sense of time, space, and memory. The album is available as a CD and digital download in stereo and 5.1 surround options. CD and Stereo Digital Download available here: https://carltesta.bandcamp.com/album/s
