The Clarke and Ware Experiment / The House of Illustrious box set

The Clarke and Ware Experiment / House of Illustrious Electro-pop legends Vince Clarke and Martyn Ware are to release a deluxe box set of ambient, atmospheric music on 26 November.

The two musicians collaborated twelve years ago, to produce the albums Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle and Pretentious and the pair have continued their project to assemble a totally unique collection of music.

The result is an ten-CD box set – The House of Illustrious – which includes the two albums mentioned above plus a host of unreleased material across eight additional CDs. The entire package is housed in a “unique collectable box set of the highest standard and quality”.

The House Of Illustrious is strictly limited to 1000 copies and none of the music will be released in physical format again.

In addition, each deluxe boxset is individually numbered and signed by Vince Clarke and Martyn Ware making it even more desirable and collectable.

The box set will retail at £79.95 and can be pre-ordered here.

  1. “The Clarke and Ware Experiment / The House of Illustrious box set | superdeluxeedition” was indeed a
    fantastic blog. If it had a lot more pix this would most likely be quite possibly even better.
