Physical Editions:

1 Fides Krucker & Tim Motzer - Vanishing (1k043)
limited edition signed and numbered with poster!
the debut recording from Toronto avant-garde singer Fides Krucker & celebrated improvising guitarist Tim Motzer. This duo first improvised together at the Theatre Centre in Toronto in 2017; not long after they created an album's worth of material in Philadelphia. They think of these spontaneous compositions as sonic films—worlds that might have been, worlds that hint at what we’ve lost, worlds in which to disappear. Their first release, Vanishing, will be released in March 2019 on 1k recordings.


2 Swana Motzer Hirlinger - Channels (1k042)
limited edition signed and numbered with poster!
-the debut release by three celebrated Philadelphia musicians John Swana, Tim Motzer, and Doug Hirlinger — is an album that immediately beckons and challenges the listener with evocative, multilayered electro-acoustic improvisations and compositions. Channels originally began as a duo recording by Swana and Motzer. After a weekend of intensive, experimental improvisation at 1K Recordings in Philadelphia, they invited Hirlinger to respond on drums – which transformed the material. For several months afterward, Swana and Motzer pored over the live studio recordings, whittling down long-form improvisations and adding orchestral layers of brass to opening track “Lost.” Anthony Tidd (longtime member of Steve Coleman and Five Elements) contributed six-string, fretless electric bass melodies to “Drift” and “Channel.” The result is a uniquely intimate and urgent record – one that defies simple categorization and reveals its intriguing richness over time.

3 Tim Motzer - Luminous (handpainted and signed edition). (1k0) ($50 value)
A collectors item, hand-painted cover by Tim Motzer, while they last. Each cover is a unique painting 5in x 10in. Unseen Universe is a highly regarded ambient trance soundscape album released in 2017. This edition also comes with an art card 5in x 5in of the original cover, album credits, and digital download.

4 Orion Tango - The Apple of No (1k033)
Top 20 Progressive Magazine 2017, Sid Smith
"Orion Tango's second album, The Apple of No, operates in the same quadrant of telepathic rock-based improvisation that King Crimson and Can explored so expertly in the 70s. This is no backward-looking knock-off though. Tim Motzer's elasticated guitar playing works with a super tight, empathetic rhythm section through four full-on suites bristling with ecstatic interplay. Their capacity to quickly sift through abstract layers to suddenly hurtle into cathartic release over quick-fire grooves makes this album a thing of wonder." - Sid Smith, Prog (UK)

5 Orion Tango - The In Between (1k049)
The 3rd album from OT: Orion Tango - The In Between
limited edition: signed by the band/numbered of 100
“The In Between dives into the same improvisatory bandwidth as Red-era King Crimson. Tough, fearless, and utterly driven, it turbo charges an outstanding set of spontaneous explorations with an expressive metal-etched velocity that marks a new and exciting point of departure for the Philadelphia-based power trio." Sid Smith, Prog Magazine (UK)

6 Orion Tango (1k028)
The debut studio album by Orion Tango. "...imagine attending a concert in an intimate performance space—say, Pink Floyd performing at the UFO Club in 1967." The Lodge
Prog Rock (UK) Top 20 End of Year List!

7 Tim Motzer - Live from Stars End (1k024)
A sublime 57 minute solo performance by Tim Motzer, from the historic November 3, 2013 Stars End radio broadcast on WXPN-fm, utilizing various guitars, bows, alligator clips, electronics, harmonizers, loopers, delays, and reverb as his tools to create his world of sound. Not to be missed.

8 Nucultures - Butterfies Zebras and Moonbeams (1k013)
A kaleidoscopic 21 song double album featuring Ellie Perez, Barry Meehan and Tim Motzer. (top 10 album of the year-Echoes Radio; "a masterpiece" -Straight No Chaser UK)

9 Nucultures - The Zebramoon Remixes (1k014)
Gorgeous reconstructions from Tilomo, Tleilaxu, Jeff Sharel, The Society, Man From Nowhere,and more—a companion work to butterflies, zebras, and moonbeams.

10 Jazzheads - Avant Wot Not (1k002)
The 1999 award winning reissue of the Philly/Brooklyn funk-jazz-drumnbass underground classic featuring Ari Hoenig, Chris Cuzme, Ben Bocardo, and Tim Motzer.

11 Secret Voices - No Time For Silence (1k012)
A groundbreaking visionary album colliding global poets w classical, ambient, electronic, free jazz, and dub featuring Ursula Rucker, Rich Medina, Kalaf, and Elliott Levin. Produced by Tim Motzer with Enrico Marani.

12 Tilomo - Soft Lunch (1k011)
Tim Motzer—aka Tilomo—solo ambient, glitch, electronic masterwork.
"amazing textures and rhythms making it as close to Warp-style electronic as traditional ambient chill-out" - Burning Shed UK

13 Goldbug-The Seven Dreams (1k016)
The debut album featuring Eric Slick (adrian belew power trio), Theo Travis (Gong, Soft Machine, Robert Fripp), Barry Meehan (Base3, NuCultures), and Tim Motzer.

14 Tim Motzer/Markus Reuter-Descending (1k018)
A classic! Motzer and Reuter's duo project of ambient improvisations w/ UK flautist Theo Travis, BJ Cole's gorgeous pedal steel, Pat Mastelotto's traps & buttons, and Doug Hirlinger's spatial cymbal work. A stunningly beautiful album.

15 Jeremy Carlstedt - When I Wake Up (1k022)
his rollercoaster ride of a debut from singer-drummer Jeremy Carlstedt offers echoes of the “anything goes” golden age of psychedelia. Dreamy soundscapes, scorching instrumental interludes, abstract experimental sonics, and razor-sharp guitar work from Tim Motzer combine to propel listeners through a unique sonic odyssey. Anil Prasad, Innerviews & Guitar Player

16 Reuter Motzer Grohowski - Shapeshiters (moonjune)
A night of overwhelming emotion, suspense, drama, intrigue and, ultimately, reverential awe ... there were, most certainly, some superhuman skills on display; a session which defied conventional logic, entrancing and astounding all the on-hand observers; and a recording which thumbs its nose at convention, while fully embracing its alien roots ... morphing, gleefully, at will – yet again, referencing shapeshifting through the spinning of another timeless epic ... and finding all three principle participants at their most sensitive, transformational best.
Markus Reuter - touch guitar. Tim Motzer - guitars,bass, electronics. Kenny Grohowski - drums
