Spoken arts and deluxe vinyl label, Cadabra Records, continue their ongoing homage to the timeless works of horror master H.P. Lovecraft, with the release of Pickman's Model. One of Lovecraft's most popular tales, Pickman's Model is hereby delivered in ultimate vinyl collector form, mastered at Watchmen Studio in upstate New York, featuring the professional stage and screen experience of Andrew Leman reading the story with captivating suspense, all backed by a horrifying soundtrack by Theologian, and completed with newly commissioned surreal paintings by Alan Brown.
Offers Cadabra Records founder Jonathan Dennison: "Everything we've been working on to date has lead to Pickman's Model. I believe this to be one of Andrew Leman's strongest performances of his career, and am very proud to put this out. Theologian perfected the score, Alan Brown killed the art; this is one hell of a package."
Pickman's Model is read by Andrew Leman, a partner of the H.P. Lovecraft historical society, a professional actor with years of stage, screen, and audio performances, his voice capturing the proper terror, dread, suspense, and madness of Lovecraft's stories. The liner notes were written by S.T. Joshi, a leading scholar on the writer responsible for a plethora of critical and biographical works.
