Constructive is pleased to announce, 'Utopia or Oblivion', a new compilation featuring ten artists inspired by the pioneering work of R. Buckminster Fuller, with each track inspired and in response to Fuller's work specifically Utopia or Oblivion', first published in 1963.
From the irregular glitch pop scintillation of 'How Would I Be? What Would I Do' by German artist & founding member of To Rococo Rot, Robert Lippok, to the heartfelt ambient and seraphic voices of 'Afterimage' by Japanese artist Tujiko Noriko (Editions Mego, PAN, Room40), through to the tensile, eruptive, dub-contoured emittances of 'Tensegrity Rhythms' by Peruvian experimental composer Ale Hop (Karlrecords).
Elsewhere, there are appearances from the Bafta-nominated composer Adam Janota Bzowski (Saint Maud OST), musician & Constructive co-founder Adrian Corker, London-based experimentalist No Home, Italian artist & NTS Radio resident Silvia Kastel (Blackest Ever Black, Palto Flats, Youth), British sound artist David Prior, and a unique collaboration between the British DIY experimental musician Richard Skelton & Corey Fuller, a descendant of R. Buckminster Fuller.

'A phenomenal collection of source specific sound creation which feels vigorous and pertinent, made for the trials of the present and the prospects of the future…If the fate of humanity is preying on your mind ? and let's be honest, one look at the news will make this all but inevitable ? then this is the ideal soundtrack.' The Ransom Note
'The most affecting moments ..sit ambiguously between optimism snd pessimism..shivering strings across vocals which slip in and out of a brightly illuminated haze' 'The Wire
