Soft Black Stars by Current 93, piano score (printed sheets, 32 pages)
Printed on Munken Pure Rough 120 g/m² cream-coloured paper, size 235×309mm.
The printed edition of Soft Black Stars, offers piano notation and the lyrics (but not the vocal lines). It is not a transcription (contrary to the accompanying digital edition), but rather a compilation of the essential piano parts composed by Michael Cashmore and manifested on paper at our publishing house. It provides a complete overview of which melodies and harmonies each song from Soft Black Stars should be improvised around, “to make your own stars” as David Tibet writes. It was, indeed, in this way that the Soft Black Stars were created during the recording sessions and in concerts.
The edition includes exclusive introductions written by David Tibet and Michael Cashmore, as well as an editor’s note with explanations and additional information. The edition is bilingual, in the original English and with the Russian translations provided.
