The Bee and The Stamen is legendary producer King Britt’s sonic interpretation of a bee’s journey. From the search for the organ that produces pollen – the stamen – to the falling of grains that result in cross-pollination, pulses and streams of sound envelop the listener in a masterpiece of sonic design and imagination.
The story unfolds exhibiting a depth of technique and artistry with elements of systems music, radiophonic wizardry and washes of 70’s-tinged library dreamscapes.
King Britt’s The Bee and the Stamen will be released in a LIMITED EDITION run of 200 Plantable Music seed-paper albums available at DataGarden.org. Type in the url and code written on the back of your seed-paper to download your music. Then, plant your album and watch it grow into blue Lobelias.
