about

The Green Kingdom is the solo project of Michael Cottone, a sound artist and graphic designer based in Michigan, USA. Interested in creating compositions which blur the lines between soundscape and structure while keeping a sharp focus on melody, his pieces are crafted using a variety of instruments, electronic sources, sampled textures and field recordings.

Since 2006 he has released several sublime albums and EPs on labels such as Lost Tribe Sound, Dronarivm, Home Assembly Music, Nomadic Kids Republic, Own Records, Tench, Flaming Pines and many others. He has also put out two releases, an album on Archives label and an EP on Hello Strange label, with his dub techno/ambient side-project Dustcraft.

Seen And Unseen is an enchanting album of seven new tracks, with a total duration of something more than 40 minutes. Cottone skillfully blends together soothing electric guitar swells, lush textures of warm synth pads, rich harmonic drones and subtle glitches with acoustic elements of delicate piano, ringing acoustic guitar arpeggios, relaxed kalimba melodies and lightly strummed ukulele chords, resulting in one of his finest works to date.

Expertly mastered by George Mastrokostas (aka Absent Without Leave), Seen And Unseen is an evocative album of introspective ambient bliss which appeals to all fans of artists like Ryuchi Sakamoto, Alva Noto, The Boats, Helios and Federico Durand.

This is a limited edition of 200 handmade and hand-numbered collectible copies. It is packaged in a lovely hand-stamped 127mm x 127mm 280 gsm deep brown cardboard envelope with the front cover image printed on a polaroid style photo paper and an insert sheet containing tracklist and information printed on a 170 gsm mocha brown cardboard.
