The Thomas Carnacki version of a double-live album. This release brings together two (relatively) early live performances of note, both in Oakland, California: a somewhat anarchic tilt-a-whirl performance at the Illuminated Corridor in 2008, and an atmospheric, spectre-tinged one, done in collaboration with stalwart projectionist/videographer Jerry Smith, at Liminal Space in 2012.
Both shows are notable for their own individual reasons. “Borman Seven” marked the first time Sheila Bosco, later to become a regular contributor, ever joined in on a Carnacki performance, and features rare appearances (well, rare in the Carnacki sphere) from Matt Waldron (irr. app. (ext.)), Marielle Jakobsons (Saariselka, Date Palms, Myrmyr) and Agnes Szelag (Myrmyr). The evening at Liminal included a set by the duo Vulcanus 68, and it was this evening that seeded the idea that eventually became the Carnacki/Vulcanus split lp.
