We are a newborn sheet-music publishing house
in Tallinn, Estonia, focused on piano and acoustic guitar music which
has an ambient flow — the music, which we ourselves have
a passion for. We transcribe and publish what has never existed on paper before.
Our transcriptions are of the highest quality and we’re open for improvement.
Our publications are multilingual, as we want to treat more people
in a better way. Our goals are a few, but on top of them
all is your joy of playing beautiful music.
We’re happy to announce the release of the Current 93 Soft
Black Stars piano book. After a month and a half from the release date
of the digital edition, the printed edition arrived from the printing plant.
We want to thank each and everyone, who so kindly supported us
with placing pre-orders in March and April.
Now that all the pre-orders are shipped, we receive feedback from our customers.
Take a look at this selection:
I got the book today. Really great done! I like it very very much..
— Ingo Brunk, Germany
(The printed edition is) a magnificent production of a wonderous
piece of art by beautiful people.
The digital edition looked amazing on iPad and the one song I printed out
(on the paper you suggested) was absolutely top quality. Happily looking forward
to any future releases.
—Johan De Ryck, Halle, Belgium
I’m happy that piano sheets of this wonderful album by Current 93 are
published. The edition is very nice, thank you very much.
— Michael W., Berlin, Germany
The beauty (the printed edition) has finally arrived, many Thanks! And I’ve
just printed out the digital edition and it’s just lovely to look at and
read. Soft Black Stars is my favourite album! What a great choice
to start your company that way—all the best to you and your
small team. Thank you so much! Большое спасибо!
— Michael F., Calw, Germany
Thank you very much for your work in putting this together! Both editions
look beautiful and it has been a joy to play and listen along with the album!
— Josh Loughrey, Pittsburgh, USA
Thank you so much! The sheets are utterly beautiful! Soft Black Stars is one
of my most beloved albums of all times, and right now I am tempted
to print the pages, frame them and put them on the walls all over my house. :)
I enjoy playing the songs very much. It is really relaxing and connects
me even more to these beautiful songs. So thank you again for the good work!
The book received, I started working on it; you worked really great!
Thank you for all! Je vous embrasse.
— Julien A., Paris, France
I am totally impressed (with the digital edition)! For me Soft Black
Stars was and is my favourite album by Current 93 — they
did a lot of brilliant stuff but Soft Black Stars is outstanding
both in terms of lyrics and the simplicity and complexity of the music.
I am no musician, I cannot read any notes but I will give the
score to my dear mother and will ask her to play them for me!
Thanks for the kind letter and this incredible piece of art (the printed edition)!
While I—of course—have checked the digital version, the printed one
surprised me in so many ways—as for different ligatures and
the two types of lower case ‘t’! So beautiful!
— Jan Bauer, Braunschweig, Germany
I’m very pleased with the book. I received it in the post last
week and I have been playing from it every day since it arrived!
It’s a lovely edition, and I’m so grateful that you’ve
put in so much time and effort to make it happen.
— Roger Sutherland, Kent, UK
Once again, we want to thank all our customers. You showed an incredible
support. Many, many thanks!
Today we put on sale the digital edition of our very first project
with Cᴜʀʀᴇɴᴛ 93, which is a complete piano and vocal transcription
of their Soft Black Stars album. The transcription offers the most precise
musical notation available of how exactly the piano and vocal parts were
performed on this album.
This is the ultimate source for one who wishes to follow the original
recording, and to go deeper and higher and further to these Stars.
One can study the music through these pages, whose layout is arranged especially
for printing out in A4 format. For an even Starrier experience,
we suggest obtaining the printed edition, which is designed specifically
to use for playing these works on the piano.
A printed edition of Soft Black Stars, to be published in April
2017, will offer piano notation and the lyrics (but not the vocal lines). It will
not be a transcription, 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 printed edition will be out in April
2017; pre-orders are now being taken.
Both editions include exclusive introductions written by David Tibet and Michael
Cashmore, as well as an editor’s note with explanations and
additional information. The editions are bilingual, in the original English
and with Russian translations provided. The music is transcribed and the score prepared
by Savva Terentyev.
