This edition, printed in serigraphy, delivers the reworked transcription of a recorded interview between Jacques Demierre and Louis Schild, in which the notion of surveying and measurement is examined, among other things and in a conversational manner (with a musical transcription and a contribution from the playwright Michèle Pralong).
This collective book devoted to the work of Sammy Baloji explores how the artist, born in the DRC in 1978, attempts to “restore defeated connections”. How to think about the memory sifted through colonial violence? What effects does the mining of yesterday and today in Katanga and elsewhere have on the project of a common future? How does form make history beyond erasure?
This vinyl record brings together three pieces that play mischievously with the voice as a sound source, narrative source or diverted object: "Huellas Entreveradas" (2018), "La Baballe du Chien Chien à la Mé-Mère" (2001) and "Deux Dents Dehors" (2007).
Divagations about René Ghil, Jean-François Bory, Lucien Suel: three authors who invented and practised the most diverse forms of “experimental poetry” and who have profoundly transformed the very idea of “poetry”.
The fifth volume in Jack Pierson's famed Tomorrow's Man
series associates archival material and works by contemporary artists in a
collage-like design to produce an exploded vision of the current visual
landscape, draped in vintage homoeroticism and glamour.
The Canadian artist's second album features two immersive pieces that
explore ideas of compositional drift: The Nonsuch is inspired by
nocturnal hallucinations while In Praise of Blandness builds on
sinologist François Jullien's concept of “blandness”.
A previously unreleased concert recording from 1983 by Das Moabiter Duo
(Sven-Åke Johansson and Thomas Kapielski). An eclectic improvisation
associating drums, electronics
and concrete music, offering a snapshot of the experimental Berlin scene
of the 1980s.
The soundtrack of an interactive project around phantom islands—islands that
appeared on historical maps but never actually existed. A collection of
fictitious soundscapes, between field recording and exotica music.
Superimposing different sources—background sounds, recordings of a charivari in the streets of Lyon, bird songs or rhythms and melodies of amateur or professional musicians—Paul Elliman's vinyl record can be experienced as a form of sound loitering, each track composed by the transformation of different audio materials into unique musical collages.
