Acoustic Jaguar is an experimental Muzine, Limited to 144 Physical copies & available for free/pay what you want Digital download. We want to spread inspiration and this is why we decided to make it available digitally, however the print magazine and cassette are true one of a kind art pieces and the ideal way to enjoy and dive in.
This muzine’s purpose is to give more permanence and weight to our ideas, to be a platform of experimentation and self-expression, to share our love and inspiration and watch it echo out into the world.
It is made up of 8 contributors across a wide variety of creative disciplines, from music producers to scientific chefs. Each artist was given a folder of images and poems to start the creative process. They were asked to create a piece of music and an accompanying visual document. The music’s sound could be anywhere from experimental to dance floor, the visual anything from a photo to a poem. The results are expansive, running the whole gamut of human experience and emotion, soaring and profound. Aural and visual journeys that are at once personal and universal.
It is imperative that you take the time to immerse yourself in this experience, play the cassette or download the music, unfold the magazine. Allow yourself to drift off, absorb the images, follow the melodies, let the whispers of inspiration guide you.

These guys are near and dear to me, as they play the sort of post-Boards of Canada analog synth music that is (truly) psychedelic and seems to yearn for the outdoors despite its synthetic nature. Strap on your vocoder and bandana and come for a frolic through a sunny meadow. This thing breathes and seethes like simmering summer heat blurring off a sidewalk. bvck
