APHORA-Crematore-(Maldoror Tapes-Portugal-c40-1996)

Aphora was a Portuguese industrial project formed by José Vilela, also involved in these projects:Corvu Prettu, José Vilela, Karfreitrg, Lacrima Christi, Negrume.
With 6 tracks in this single-sided tape, Aphora plays a good mix of quiet noise and dark ambient reminding me of some old experiments of esoteric electronicks.
It was released in a limited edition of 20 copies with a photo cover and a xerox copy insert.
Maldoror Tapes was a Portuguese label founded by José Vilela specialized in industrial, ambient and power electronics. All of their releases were extremely limited cassettes (typically 20 or 30 copies each), with a J-card made from an actual photograph, with the title and label number written in rub-on letters. A small photocopied insert was also included with each release, containing the tracklisting and other information. (all info from Discogs)
Enjoy it.
