SOLD OUT

4 LPs and 3 EPs we call Myths Foundation - 7 records for the 7 letters in Sub Rosa - made up our very first productions. Back then, we weren't contemplating starting a record label, we simply wanted to produce pretty complicated (and obscure) objects that could be listened to, read, and scrutinized. We released these items once we had enough money to do so, we had no resources, and we were still students. Slowly, one record a year, against sound judgment, we put these releases together through a series of defining encounters. This handful of records was meant to be the beginning of an adventure, And in that regard, they didn't fail.

4 stages > sub rosa myths foundation: 1984-89

the first is "instructions for survival"
black-purple-red
the second is such that one forsakes industry's clamor for a road where one walks alone
black-orange (can be rusted)
the third is an invitation to a secret stoïcism- rose-fingered dawn's smile
deep blue
the fourth is such that it's the heart that speaks in a spiral movement
sinople- green (fossils)

+

secret stories: whisperings from the heart of the world - shadows go by, comes the echo of winged hours - a bouquet of dead roses - rooms inundated by the sinople dawn: green humming ions - paths in a park - prospects of hundred-year-old trees and voices - open book - the anticipated memory - light-suffused faces living forever. through the harsh light-weightedness of the space, despite the obstacles and our dejection, we hold on to this as a first principle: the primacy of life over abhorrence. (fragment #3)
