The Demo Vault (One)

by rafael anton irisarri



The Demo Vault is more than just another collection of demos and/or unreleased compositions. It is an insight at the creative processes shaping Rafael Anton Irisarri's musical output. The first EP of the series offers timestamps from a long distance collaboration with Manchester's Danny Norbury, which became “Hopes and Past Desires” (released as a 7” vinyl on Immune in 2009). It also contains the very first demo sent to Erik K. Skodvin (Miasmah), which lead to the release of the Daydreaming album in 2007.


released June 29, 2010

All music written, performed and produced by Rafael Anton Irisarri.

String arrangements on "Hopes and Past Desires (Danny Norbury version)" written and performed by Danny Norbury
