On Monday 20th of March Armcomm Europe and Clock DVA will officially release the pre-order of the Second Edition of Noesis Box with important changes – Noesis is the long-awaited new album that marks the rebirth of the CDVA project, founded by Adi Newton in 1978 and now featuring a line-up completed by Tez Maurizio Martinucci on sound and Gabriel Edvy on visuals. The First Edition is sold out. The ‘first wave’ was printed in 250 copies between December 2022 and January 2023, while the other 250 copies of the second edition, ‘the second and final wave’, will be printed between March and April 2023 so to reach the 500 box numbered copies, as promised. Given the public and critical success of Noesis, the special edition Noesis Box is set to become a classic for the many Clock DVA fans around the world.
Big news starting from Monday 20th March until 7th April :
1) The first important news is that there will be a version of the DE LUXE box autographed by Adi Newton (signatures collected at Rough Trade East in London): SIGNED DE LUXE. There are only a few copies, they belong to the private collection of Adi Newton and Rizosfera and bear the signature of Adi Newton on a twill paper page of Noesis. Click here for more info. The numbered Signed Deluxe Boxes are always within the first 100 copies of the original Deluxe Box numbering.
2) The second important novelty is the MODULAR BOX, i.e. a Noesis box whose internal content you can choose by inserting the various items you are interested in, starting from a basic grid of items to more elaborated ones. Click here to pre-order the Modular Box or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or for more advanced personalization.
3) There are two reasons for the proposal of the MODULAR BOX: the first offers a wider choice to build your own Noesis box with the elements you are most interested in. The second reason is the interest of those who have already bought the Noesis CD or vinyl but still want to have the Noesis Box in a personalised form. For them, the choice is very easy as it is a matter of buying just the basic Modular box as it is offered now, without adding anything else, or adding just one more element, e.g. the Noesis T shirt.
4) The other Noesis boxes available in the Second Edition, leaving out the SIGNED DELUXE and the MODULAR, are the ART & DIGITAL and the ART & BOOK boxes, the latter only available for ITALY as Paolo Bertoni’s book is only published in Italian. All numbered boxes pertaining to Modular, Art & Digital and Art & Book will be numbered within the originally planned 400 copies. The complete edition of the Noesis boxes will therefore comprise 100 numbered copies belonging to the DELUXE & SIGNED DELUXE version only, while 400 copies are destined for the remaining ART & DIGITAL, ART & BOOK, MODULAR and FIRST EDITION TYPE A / B / C. In the Second Edition, Type A / B / C are not included as they have been superseded by the MODULAR box.
5) The Second Edition of Noesis Boxes are available only at Rizosfera website both for Europe + UK and America. Please send an email to email@example.com for shipments to Asia, Oceania and Africa or for other special shipments with more items from the Rizosfera catalogue.
6) We remind to those who are already members of Rizosfera Cultural Association and have a 2023 membership card, that a personalised code, which grants a 10% discount on the entire Rizosfera catalogue, including the Second Edition of boxes, is available.
