Info: "Camellia Sinensis" is a 4 x cassette / 64 page book deluxe box-set by Norwegian noise artist Lasse Marhaug. This release marks the 20th anniversary of Marhaug as a recording artist (in reference one of the tracks is titled "20 Years Of Nothing"), and features all new studio material recorded over the last two years in Oslo. The eight 15 minute pieces that makes "Camellia Sinensis" are all full-on harsh noise, using different techniques and instrumentation (guitar, turntables, scrap metal, objects etc), to create a varied selection of material.
But the music is only half of "Camellia Sinensis", as the box comes with a 64 page book of illustrations, photographs, drawings and texts, designed by Marhaug. The book is loosely divided into chapters that mirrors the themes of the titles from the cassettes. There is also an interview with Marhaug conducted by Mikko Aspa, dealing with cassette culture, originally published in the Special Interests fanzine #1.
The four cassettes are pro-duplicated with label printing, and the book printed on glossy paper. Each book is numbered and signed by Marhaug. There will be no reissue of this material. Only 100 copies will be made.
