“Colour” is a 16 (!!!) DVD box set that collects Coil live performances, loops used on the tour and background projections among other things. Peter “Sleazy” Cristopherson posted the following on Threshold House website:
“Colour Sound Oblivion will consist of at least 12 dvds of all the Incarnations of Coil Live, with simultaneous Projection channels, plus at least 2 discs of alternate versions Projections with “karaoke” backing tracks and audio loops, which you can use to remake Coil Live in your own image. A minimum of 14 dvds, possibly more – the final total depends on the last bits of compiling being done by the end of the year.
More information, including an ‘artists’ impression’ of the finished box, and a list of the final shows, will be posted when it is confirmed. Please note that some of the shows were shot with multiple cameras and edited “professionally”, while others were shot by audience members on a single camera only, and are presented for the historical record. In all cases the videos are the best available, and have been mastered in multi-region, universally playable format, to maximise your enjoyment.
Colour Sound Oblivion will also contain a large collection of 6″ × 4″ postcards of personal snaps and images from behind the scenes on the road with Coil, which may be displayed in the frame Patrons receive with their Certificate, as well as various special personal objects and gifts, related to Coil’s performances.”
