Icarus' Fake Fish Distribution - their 9th album release - will be released online via a bespoke web store on the 6th of February 2012. Once a variation has been purchased, it is then 'destroyed' so that no one else will be able to purchase that exact same variation ensuring that your purchase is completely unique!

"AN ALBUM IN 1000 VARIATIONS: Icarus' forthcoming album, Fake Fish Distribution (FFD), their 9th in all, uses generative and parametric techniques to create a musical work that draws on the increasingly fruitful relationship between contemporary electronic music, algorithmic software processes and designed variation. It is one album available in a sequence of 1,000 different variations. In some tracks, such as Dumptruck Cannibals, you'll hardly notice the variation until the end. In others such as Old D, it is more extreme. Some tracks, such as Two Mbiras, start and end in different places but pass through the same centre."
