  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Limited edition of 75 signed and numbered hand-made packages, each absolutely unique. Beautiful vinyl-look CD (with tactile grooves) tucked into a recycled paper sleeve hand-stamped on both sides with metallic pigment inks, and wrapped up in a recycled Kraft sleeve eco-dyed by hand with hi-desert flora and rusted metal objects gathered from the landscape that brought these songs to life. Follow @artemis_music on Instagram to see time-lapse videos of each step of the making of these little treasures. Images shown here are *examples* of works in progress - further/alternate embellishments may be made, and no two will look exactly alike. Check back for more images! Also, because each element is lovingly hand-crafted, your one-of-a-kind CD package may be blessed with its own tiny flaws and imperfections, just like all of us. Handle with care and enjoy!

lyrics

a small star in a vast sky
no known constellation
hardly of consequence
in the company
of such bright
luminaries
hard to notice
her burning

hydrogen for joy
helium desire
leaden longing
golden equanimity

elemental emotion
atomic state of mind
uranium inquiry
quicksilver curiosity

solitary strong
she educates herself
alchemically

greedy gravity
make molecular
constellation
only the weightless
are immune
even thought is heavy
mass of a line
on a page
consequence of a dream

or a story told
pushing air around
in little ripples
some cruel
and some
kind

a small star
in a vast sky

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further.
