*150 copies limited edition* (else)where is a collaboration between composers Bruno Duplant + Seth Nehil and photographers TJ Norris + Harrison Higgs, consisting of two CDs and 10 cards in a box set. Fifteen soundscapes, each a consistent length (5:00 and 10:00) are placed in conversation with 19 images, each a pairing of halves. Cards and sounds may be shuffled by the listener to create new juxtapositions. A poem by David Grubbs completes the set.

With Higgs & Nehil in the Pacific Northwest, Norris in Texas, and Duplant in Northern France, the artists exchanged materials in 2018 - 19, through multiple iterations of reconfiguration and response. They bring previous histories and connections to this project, with Norris curating Higgs and Nehil into art exhibitions and writing the liner notes for Duplant’s Quelques Usines Fantômes N°3, while Higgs has created numerous album covers for Nehil since 2008. Duplant and Nehil continued their sonic collaboration with (eco)systems on Stellage in 2021 and The Memory of Things on Sublime Retreat in 2022.

Distant instruments and voices, corroded melodies, electronic insects and low tones drift across a series of unedited field recordings - captured moments in time and space. A dream narrative emerges from fractured frames. Intersections of locations contain a collection of deceptions, interruptions and overlays. Discovered textures are placed alongside sculptural interventions and synthetic manipulations, in dialogue with the accidental.
