"A Franco-Australian quintet active 2009-2013, Thymolphthalein worked in the field of live instrumental electro-acoustic music. Employing organizational frameworks stemming from open-from 20th/21st century composition, rhythmically-geared outsider electronics and systematized improvisational strategies, this is the music of the possible. Mad Among The Mad is the definitive document of six incredible electro-acoustic instrumental works performed by Thymolphthalein, following up their 2011 cult Editions Mego debut Ni Maitre, Ni Marteau. Featuring compositions and improvisations written collaboratively by the group, this disc has been meticulously recorded over 4 European cities, capturing the band at their peak. As with all Immediata releases, the audio is accompanied by extensive text, in this case featuring conversations between band members, essays and confessional asides surrounding life as a working musician in the 21st century. This is the second release on the ongoing Immediata series, beautifully presented in thick dark red recycled cardboard, silver hotstamped text on both sides, 16 page booklet, and mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering, Melbourne. Limited edition of 300 copies." (label info) Deluxe CD Ecopak with 16-page booklet. Natasha Anderson, contrabass recorder, computer. Will Guthrie, drums, percussion.
