Didn't know it but apparently this is a 'thing' on TikTok. No seriously. https://thequietus.com/articles/29098-the-caretaker-tiktok-everywhere-at-the-end-of-time-interview  

New material.  [ -0º ]  

much of this vid explores Everywhere At The End Of Time project :  

Thanks for the words and sentiments.

I'm in touch with Weirdcore often and the videos for the stages should happen in time.
Aphex live work etc. for upcoming and previous shows took a lot of his creative time
through the past couple of years.

There's no deadline or rush for this to appear, but it will.

Sweet!  A mighty task he has ahead of him but I for one can't wait to see them. 

And thanks again, it's really a remarkable series and I look forward to your next project(s).

Sorry if this has already been discussed. Are there plans to release this all as a CD box?

edit: or perhaps you mean all of the stages in a single box?

Yeah, i begrudgingly decided not to drop £48 on the CD box set, kinda happy with digitals on this one.

 

Maybe a tape pack would be fitting for the degradation over time....

the description of the bandcamp page has been updated btw

 

EVERYWHERE AT THE END OF TIME (COMPLETE EDITION)

 

When work began on this series it was difficult to predict how the music would unravel itself. Dementia is an emotive subject for many and always a subject I have treated with maximum respect.

 

Stages have all been artistic reflections of specific symptoms which can be common with the progression and advancement of the

different forms of Alzheimer's.

 

Thanks always for your support of this series of works

remembered by The Caretaker.

 

Physical editions of all stages on both vinyl and compact-disc

are available now and are being distributed by Boomkat.

May the ballroom remain eternal.

 

C'est fini.

Boomkat have the book available now.

 

https://boomkat.com/products/everywhere-an-empty-bliss

 

Limited edition, large format, hard cover, 162 pages, 1.5 kg heavyweight book in French and English. Includes a 17 track CD of previously unreleased material by The Caretaker, 'Everywhere, an empty bliss'.
 
Ivan Seal’s paintings have accompanied almost all of James Leyland Kirby’s output as The Caretaker over the last two decades. This comprehensive book, made to coincide with a long-in-the-making exhibition in Clermont Ferrand, France, provides a beautiful, in-depth look at their work together through 160 pages of artwork, essays and commentary from both Ivan Seal and The Caretaker, a luxurious and weighty hardcover tome marking the end of an era.
 
Featuring art made for The Caretaker, as well as many previously unseen paintings, the book provides closure to a project that came to an end last month with the sixth and final part of the 'Everywhere At The End Of Time' series. As most of The Caretaker’s music over the years has been released without text or even track titles included in the artwork, this is the first time there has been any written commentary provided by either artist for their work together. 
 

 

Alongside an included 17 track CD of previously unreleased material from The Caretaker, 'Everywhere, An Empty Bliss’ is a beautiful final document from one of the most ambitious and longstanding projects in contemporary music, one that will only grow in stature as time goes by.

Some of those tracks are different from the digital version of this album.

 

Oh you're right! I didn't even pay attention to the tracklisting on the Boomkat website. It has quite a few exclusive tracks on it. Nice! :)

Wow, I didn't notice that. Pretty good news because I did sort of order this with mixed feelings (mistakenly) thinking that I already had all the music and was just paying for the book.

INspo by The Shining? Am I pointing out the obvious?

Do you have to pay royalties on the old jazz tracks?

Now that The Caretaker series is over, I'll be really interested to see where the artist goes next. It's bound to be intriguing.

Wasn't really in the right head space for Stage 6 when it came out but really got into it this week, a fitting and beautiful ending.

 

Am homebound recoverying from surgery so took the opportunity to listen to all 6 stages back to back today.. awesome journey! Works really well as one big album descending into chaos and listening to it all in one go made the blissfull ending even more emotional

  • 3 months later...

For some reason I had never heard of this guy before today. Saw him mentioned in a watmm post and decided to check him out. Holy shit this hits hard man... I am on my summer vacation and now I feel depressed lol

The first part reminds me of my grandparents house in Switzerland, brown, old, creaking, nostalgic.

Going to hold off on this for now, I'll come back when it's autumn.

Listened to the first stage and decided to hold off on it yeah, first stage sounds absolutely beautiful but this is definitely not the right time of year for a collection like this

if it's your first time listening to the caretaker you should take a listen to his other albums! this one has become rather popular...

      Limited time only. Issued on V/Vm Bandcamp.
      Made available again for a limited time due to the number of requests for it in full, this has not been remastered or altered in any way from its original 2006 upload and originally it was only available as an MP3 download. Update, immerse, remember, erase.
      Originally released in 2006. This is the full unedited and long unavailable 'The Death Of Rave' project. From its original press release. "An audio soup of half remembered rave anthems featuring all of the hits and many misses from the golden age of the Northern U.K. rave scene. From the run down Blackburn warehouses through to the M6 service stations enroute to Shelly's in Stoke the people came. The rave legacy no longer lives on, the corpse of rave bares no resemblance to those heady days in the late eighties and early nineties."

      I've been trying to find the original songs that were used by the Caretaker. Apart from what I found on whosampled.com and a Youtube channel there isn't much more. I'm the most interested in the ones on 'Everywhere at the end of time stage 2'. I would love to know what that last track is.
      I did find the first one, which is 'Love's old sweet song' by James Molloy. Discovered it while watching the movie Awakenings.
      Anyone else know something?

      evening all,
       
      ?? those who follow me on social media may have caught wind of this already, but I've taken it upon myself to curate a [what is now shaping up to be a massive] tribute album to Leyland Kirby in regards to his Caretaker project - I've already received an upwards of 30 quality submissions in a matter of a week - at this point, I'm thinking I'll cut it off at 72 tracks as a nod to Theoretically pure anterograde amnesia - figured now is the time to open up submissions to watmm artists.
       
      for those interested in contributing -- tracks would need to fall in line with the style of the Caretaker material (i.e. haunted ballroom music, dark ambient drones, noise, subdued sampling of 1920's and 1930's jazz, orchestral, and big band music - original compositions are welcome, as is any "Shining" fanfare (as long as it's not too 'disruptive').   track length should preferably not exceed 10 minutes - no intentional remixes of existing Caretaker tracks, no trap beats (you wouldn't think I'd have to say that, but seeing as how I received 3 already), i'd also suggest steering clear of sampling "Midnight, The Stars, And You" - email submissions (.wav) to [email protected] - general inquiries can be addressed there as well.   the loose deadline for now is August, might possibly release it in October, or at least some time after Stage 3 of Everywhere At The End Of Time has soaked in a bit - this should give everyone ample time to turn in tracks - right now I'm thinking this will be released via a one-off bandcamp page, sold digitally - that's not to say arrangements won't be made with a label, if it's a deemed a worthy venture (physical run, etc).   in the spirit of the subject matter, all digital proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association, which aims to advance research, and enhance care for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia.   hope to hear from some of you!   regards, Alex / Nmesh
