The Sound of Vision 1986-1992

These – fanzines, posters, t-shirts – like the recordings, received catalogue numbers. Vision 1 was a zine and appeared in November 1986. While […]

Cortex related releases

After reading somewhere in a short review that Cortex were “newcomers to the scene” I compiled the currently available titles of either Alex Buess or Daniel Buess on the frontpage of the Praxis online shop. Granted the new Praxis release is the first under the Cortex name (although the project exists since 1998), but especially […]
