EMA 041: STEVE ROY – MICRODUST REMAINS We celebrate our re-launch with the fourth installment of our archival series. Windsor, Canada’s Steve Roy performed at MUTEK and the Detroit Electronic Music Festival in the middle of last decade. This compilation features previously unreleased and hard to find material remastered and repackaged. Devotees of early Plastikman and Raster-Noton may find something interesting here. Edition of 50.
Up next: The return of Eric Cook.
EMA 038: Rob Theakston – Field Recordings 2002-2010
Previously released long out of print field recordings of such exotic locales as Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Plymouth, Detroit, Windsor and new territories and field recordings from the horse capital of the world. Remastered with loving care. Limited edition of 20.
EMA 039: Silverware – Silverware
We are as pleased as possible to present to you Silverware, the debut mini-LP from Lexington’s hypertalented Ainsley Wagoner. First fell in love with Silverware from a composition on the most excellent Resonant Hole compilation, and incessantly demanded a finished project. Several months, a trip to Europe, a baby and everything else later, we’re pleased to offer up this haunting, simply sensational recording of chilling folk songs. Easily one of our favorite releases in the whole catalog, and our most popular seller to date. Unlimited Edition.
EMA 034: DAMAGED CATHOLIC – HEAD CONTUSION
The next in the Damaged Catholic experiments finds the Ann Arbor duo looping and exploring passages from the Dead Sea Scrolls into never ending blurs, Alvin Lucier style.
EMA 035: WARM SILENCE – DISTANT SCRATCHES
Transmissions from the Motor City. More manipulated field recordings from the city everyone in the world seems to be obsessed with.
EMA 036: HI PITCH DEREK – ACTORS XII-XXIII
The last of the initial actors sessions come to light here as our favorite Californian squelches his way to the upper registers of human hearing. New bonus: melodies!
EMA 037: LIFTED INC – UNDERWHELMED UNDERFED
EMA 033: BILL VAN LOO- THE GHOST OF AN IDEA
We’re pleased to offer forth a 3″ mini-cd from our long time co-conspirator/photographer muse, Ypsilanti’s Bill Van Loo. 4 dreamy winter time tracks for guitar. After the initial email list offering, there are very limited quantities left!

Live performance from April 2009. Extremely limited edition.
EMA 029: DAMAGED CATHOLIC – SINGLE PHASE CHANGE

EMA 030: ROB THEAKSTON – CONDITION
Recorded on 2009 Autumn tour. Lightly scraped digital dust over a bed of resonant chords and holes.

Summer is upon us and we’d like to announce our next two releases:
EMA 21: Hi Pitch Derek – Interruption
The 22 people who purchased his first EP will be pleased to know this second EP is another helping of what this young critter does best: make quiet, high pitch, piercing noises. We’re aiming to sell 25 copies of this to help boost his self-esteem.
EMA 22: Warm Silence – Variables
For the daring people who took advantage of the free download, we offer up a full length recording of Warm Silence’s latest work. Once again capturing the daring tundra of Ferndale, MI. Warm Silence is taking it to the streets with a vengeance, a field recorder and a special delay patch on a laptop. While supplies last!
As always you can purchase these directly from us. Later this summer, look out for the release of CD Player Virgins, a new joint by Rob Theakston, possibly some stuff from Off The Sky, maybe something from Walter Carson. Who knows?
