Vapourspace Reworks Classic Magna Carta Material on Sonic Residue From Vapourspace

Release Date February 5, 2002

In its continuing quest and mission to be an innovative and creative label, Magna Carta now presents an album of electronic remixes of the best tracks from its great artists.  Among the artists covered are Liquid Tension Experiment, Bozzio Levin Stevens, Steve Morse, Niacin, Attention Deficit and Steve Walsh. With Sonic Residue From Vapourspace (The Magna Carta Remix Series Volume 1), it becomes clear that there is a distinct tie between electronica and the intelligent music of progressive rock.

Mark Gage (who works under the name Vapourspace) was enlisted to create new music from the existing master tapes.  Gage went through numerous Magna Carta releases searching for the tracks that he wanted to remix for this project.  One year later, Gage emerged from Vapourspace with an album based on the original works but sounding radically different. Yet, throughout all his changes to the original tracks, he never added new performances using only the source material provided altered with his mastery of studio technology.

Gage has a hard time putting a label on the Vapourspace sound, but "neo-classicist electronic" is a term he thinks comes pretty close.  He is also quick to point out that he is not a "DJ".  His song “Gravitational Arch of 10” from one of his early albums was labeled as one of the most important electronic tracks of the last decade by URB Magazine.  Yet, Vapourspace relies on the original performances and a radically different perspective of what music can sound like.

Sonic Residue From Vapourspace (The Magna Carta Remix Series Volume 1), is a fresh interpretation of previously released music from the highly skilled Magna Carta roster of rock musicians.  Electronic artist Vapourspace has created new from old.  Journalists will receive an additional disc containing the original songs.  Original artist material from the following musicians:
