CREAM Crossroads , Cream , 1969 Vinyl

Best Of Cream by Cream released in 1969 Clapton, Bruce and Baker - the first super group Complete with lyric slides and pictures of the band. Judging by the comments online, pop artist Jim Dine's sleeve for this Cream greatest hits collection didn't go down too well with the band's fans. "That black-and-white sketch of the cucumbers isn't even finished (besides looking a bit phallic)," complains one guy on a forum. But Dine's sleeve continues the artist's attempt to defamiliarise the most mundane and recognisable of household items, treating aubergines and oranges as abstract forms much as an earlier generation would have employed purple and, well, orange. A participant in the important New Painting of Common Objects exhibition at the Pasadena Art Museum in 1962, alongside Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Ed Ruscha, Dine remains a unique voice in contemporary art, with a show of new works currently on view at Galerie Templon, Paris.

Terry Snyder & The All-Stars, Persuasive Percussion (Josef Albers, 1959) I'm in the Mood for Love

In 1959, former Bauhaus professor Josef Albers had just left a teaching job at Yale when he was called up by a former student, Charles E. Murphy. Murphy had been made art director at Command Records, a new label run by lounge music bandleader Enoch Light, and was looking for something abstract, modern, and eyecatching to go on the sleeve of a series of percussion records by Light and drummer Terry Snyder. The results can be seen on three volumes of Provocative Percussion and two of Persuasive Percussion (volumes 1 and 3 – Murphy handled design duties on Persuasive Percussion volume 2 himself), representing practically the only commercial art work in Albers' caree

Drew McDowall - Agalma II (ft. Caterina Barbieri) (Official Audio)

So, let's say that Agalma presents us with exactly the right amount of riches made manifest in part by an impossibly stacked deck of collaborators: Caterina Barbieri, Kali Malone, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Bashar Suleiman, Elvin Brandhi, MSYLMA, and Maralie Armstrong-Rial on a bonus track, with Ben Greenberg in the production booth and Josh Bonati on the master. That’s a who's who of experimental music. Even if Drew McDowall totally sucked, based on the strength of those collaborators, it's hard to imagine this record being bad. But McDowall doesn't suck – his post-Coil body of work alone is singularly excellent, and the few "non-collaborative" compositions on this record – 'Agalma I (Folding)', 'Agalma VI', and the bonus track 'Abandoned Object' – attest to his excellence flying solo

Georgia - About Work The Dancefloor (Glastonbury 2019)

Georgia distills her various influences, pulling in synthpop, disco, Chicago House, and 1980s Detroit techno with sprinklings of UK garage, dancehall, and even post-punk. It's a heady, energetic fusion of sounds with Georgia taking things back to basics as she constructs sounds from analogue synths and simple drum machine beats. The whole thing is designed to take you back to the comforting, sticky floors of the dancefloor, where the only thing that matters is you and the music.

Reptiles (Channel One Version Extra)- Pylon – Box [New West] 2020

Pylon may have been the best band to have ever come out of Athens, Georgia. A bold statement, perhaps, but one which members of both the B-52's and R.E.M., the most famous bands to emerge from Athens, Georgia, would probably endorse. Pylon's 2020 box set, simply titled Box, contains the two albums (1980's Gyrate and 1983's Chomp) that the band released during its original incarnation, along with The Razz Tape, which documents the band's very first recording session; and Extras, a clean-up disc that covers non-album singles, B-sides, rarities and a handful of live recordings. Taken together, the four records/discs in Box represent a band that found a unique and influential sound early on and subtly experimented with the sound, while staying true to it.

Pink Siifu - album NEGRO song we need mo color 2020

It may be a stretch to call Pink Siifu's NEGRO "prescient", but the record, which dropped two months before the inflammatory summer of protest, feels almost bound to soundtrack the revolution. Lines like "tell the police he can eat a dick" from "SMD" shows Pink Siifu echoing a tradition of artists like N.W.A, whose notorious "Fuck Tha Police" shaped a generation thirty years prior. Indeed, history repeats itself: cops kill black people. America systemically oppresses black people. NEGRO makes it abundantly clear that Pink Siifu, along with so many others, is fucking fuming. NEGRO expresses this anger as a collage of almost unbearable noise. Pink Siifu delivers endlessly-quotable declarations and near-indecipherable verses over lo-fi beats that merge industrial music, hip-hop, and hardcore punk — each significant anti-establishment traditions. The album is punctuated by news clips, Blaxploitation film bytes, crushing distortion, jazzy flourishes, and occasional quietude. Its force simply cannot be reduced to individual tracks—20 in its < 40-minute runtime. In NEGRO resides powerful dissonance—there's a philosophy to its brashness, complexity to its simplicity, and loving to its venom. Turned off by the album's sound? That's the point. You're not supposed to be comfortable in 2020. NEGRO speaks to a cultural moment characterized by hatred and fear, feelings that will forever boil over until Black trauma has been healed. And those who experience it know painfully well the magnitude of the work ahead—for anti-Blackness is woven into the very fabric of our nation's flag. -- Andrew Cox

Pink Siifu - NEGRO [Independent] 2020 song FK

Black artists have a long history of using the American flag in album art—Sly and the Family Stone, Ice Cube, OutKast—sparking conversation on the dire position of black people in the United States. In May of 2020, this conversation erupted in full force as the world watched in horror as a police officer knelt on a Black man's neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds, killing him in broad daylight. George Floyd's murder, along with Breonna Taylor's, ignited protests in every major city in the US and many around the world, defined by police brutality, bold political action, and dialog at every level.

Desire Marea - Desire [Independent] 2020 song Tavern Kween

It starts with a distorted horn intro—epic, eerie, regal: a good summation of South African Desire Marea's debut album, which pushes the boundaries of club music to the limit. "Tavern Kween" resides in disco territory but lacks the easy melodic payoff. "Thokozani" drifts at first and then is propelled into an utterly euphoric breakbeat percussion blitz. Desire is marked by these stylistic shifts from song to song. Few albums cover as much ground across nine tracks as this record does. It's high art emboldened by the grimy underbellies of electronic and experimental styles. When Desire sings, it's as serene as Moses Sumney and as emphatic as ANOHNI. And the production only amplifies Marea's might.

Lyra Pramuk - Fountain [Bedroom Community] 2020 song Gossip

Listening to Lyra Pramuk's debut album, I think about the importance of creative limitations. They go against the usual platitudes about imagination and direction in life: 'The possibilities are endless', 'Just Do It', etc. The idea of limitless possibilities is daunting—pushing us to exhaustion just to feel as if we're doing enough with our lives. It's legitimately dangerous to our mental health to continually test the uncharted waters of our imagination. The vastness of the universe and its infinite possibilities are just…too much. On Fountain, Pramuk exercises one major creative limitation: her voice as the sole choice of instrument.

Elysia Crampton - ORCORARA 2010 [PAN] 2020 song Grove (feat. Embaci)

This album follows intergenerational trauma, fugitives of Christian violence in a twilight called Puruma, returning to Mama Cocha, the sea that theorists call Nowhere. Dedicated to the life of Paul Sousa, who while incarcerated, worked years as an inmate firefighter across the Sierra Nevada of California. Also dedicated to the work of Sage LaPena and Dr. Gretel Mendizabal Nolte. (Includes misreadings of Jimenez, Saenz, Claudel, Wright). Not one, not world, not body, not god, not salvation, not zero; only a ceaseless approaching toward, with, and as the great mystery, by Grace, Tatamama. Jallalla. ORCORARA 2010 was comissioned and released in 2018 by Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, CH for the first floor at the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement 2018 ‘The sound of screens imploding’. Of all the harrowing imagery we've seen this year, that of San Francisco's orange-red skies has stayed with me most. 2020 saw wildfires tear through the American west in yet another dry hot summer season that surely won't be the last. Looking to the past, native tribes of the area lit controlled fires to maintain the landscape for centuries, before disruption by European colonists. Elysia Crampton Chuquimia's latest, ORCORARA 2010, is dedicated to Paul Sousa, an inmate firefighter, and Sage LaPena, a Native American herbalist. It's fitting for the American artist of Aymara descent (a native people of Bolivia), whose work positions the indigenous beside the postcolonial. The album is mastered by Jeremy Cox. All proceeds go to the American Indian Movement West/ AIM SoCal chapters.

Tangerine Dream, "Bath Tube Session," Berlin, 1969 - Isolation Viewing: Krautrock

Whether or not you are still feeling the isolation blues, it’s always nice to have something to watch. Especially in the way of interesting musical clips. I sometimes scour youtube in search of enticing tidbits in the way of music. I quite often discover some quite interesting stuff. Back in the ’70s, progressive music from Germany started to make inroads outside of the country and the British music press soon latched onto it giving it the name Krautrock. Some of the names which soon became familiar were Can, Amon Duul II, Kraftwerk, Cluster, Tangerine Dream and Neu! to name but a few. Here are a few clips which I’ve collected for your viewing pleasure. Kraftwerk on the German TV programme Beat Club ca. 1971. What is interesting here is that it is Florian Schneider accompanied by Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger who would later go on to be known as the duo Neu! Here is another German TV clip for 1971 featuring Ralf and Florian with Wolfgang Flur on his freshly built electronic drum set. Here is a very unique clip of Tangerine Dream live in Berlin, 1969. This was before they acquired synthesisers and were a psychedelic, freak-out group. Edgar Froese, guitar. Klaus Schulze, drums. “Happy” Dieter, bass (according to the video notes).

Mystery by Vic Chesnutt · Elf Power

Funeral Singers by Califone

Kristin Hersh - A Loon

OTD, 25-12-2009 - Vic Chesnutt, American singer-songwriter died from an overdose of muscle relaxants that had left him in a coma in an Athens hospital. He released 17 albums during his career Don't Suck, Don't Die begins in a parking lot in Alabama, where Hersh and Chesnutt stopped on a road trip with their spouses. Hersh tries to give Chesnutt a Jolly Rancher candy, urging him to "Grab sugar wherever it falls." Chesnutt, who preferred lukewarm instant coffee, was having none of it: "That is prob'ly the gayest thing you ever said." He was a maddening figure, capable of both great compassion and casual cruelty. "For a son of a bitch, you radiated kindness," Hersh writes. "Maybe you were an angel, I don't know. You only sometimes acted like one." The book follows Hersh and Chesnutt over the years, from concerts the two played in England and France to nights spent just hanging out at Chesnutt's Athens, Ga., home. It's obvious that Hersh has an abiding love for her friend, though she's not afraid to write about his darker moments; her book isn't a hagiography. In one section, Hersh recounts Chesnutt punching a young man backstage at a Vancouver theater. "What did he do?" a stunned Hersh asks. "Nuthin'," Chesnutt replies. With the exception of two opening paragraphs and a selected discography at the end, all of Don't Suck, Don't Die is written in the second person; it's essentially a long valedictory letter from Hersh to Chesnutt. It's a technique that could seem forced in the hands of a less experienced writer, but Hersh, whose previous memoir Rat Girl won critical acclaim, handles it flawlessly. The effect is extraordinarily powerful — it gives Hersh a way to express both the love and the anger that Chesnutt inspired in her. And anyone who's lost a close friend or family member knows what that mixture feels like. It's irrational and confusing, and Hersh captures it perfectly. "[Y]ou started with a broken heart and blamed everyone you met after that for breaking it," she writes. And then later, nearly broken under the weight of her grief: "Fallen, but not in free fall: in misery, but still singing. 'I am not a good ... man.' No, not always. But you were maybe a good angel." The act of writing about losing a loved one can be a catharsis, or it can be a special kind of nightmare. Frequently, it's both. And we may never know what it was like for Hersh — memoirs of grief are inevitably difficult, especially when the subject is someone as widely loved as Chesnutt. On every page of the book, she lays her pain bare, and she does so with some of the strongest writing imaginable: "God is cruel but smart. He really did break you in all the right places." Don't Suck, Don't Die is not only one of the best books of the year, it's one of the most beautiful rock memoirs ever written. Hersh is as stunningly talented an author as she is a musician, and her portrayal of Chesnutt is perfectly done. In "Sponge," Chesnutt sang, "I'll soon be silent, you'll soon hear nothing." Thanks to Hersh, we get a chance to hear Chesnutt again, and his voice, though weary and harsh and broken, is just as angelic as it ever was. Perhaps nobody could have saved Chesnutt, but as Hersh writes, "Sometimes we wanna die. And sometimes we watch each other live through it. This is maybe all the saving anyone ever amounts to." "I bent over backwards to misbehave," Vic Chesnutt sang in 1993's "Dodge," "It's a holy wonder I just didn't flip on over into an early grave." Like many of Chesnutt's lyrics, it proved to be heartbreakingly prophetic. The indie singer-songwriter was wracked with depression and debt after a car accident left him quadriplegic when he was a teenager. And he'd survived a few suicide attempts before overdosing on muscle relaxants in December 2009. He died on Christmas Day at age 45. Chesnutt's music was spare and despairing, sometimes funny, sometimes angry, often in the same song. Maybe only someone with a similar sensibility — compassionate, elusive, afraid but defiant — could begin to explain the man behind the beautiful songs that have been covered by musicians from R.E.M. to Joe Henry and Madonna. In her stunning new memoir Don't Suck, Don't Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt, Kristin Hersh, frontwoman of the indie band Throwing Muses, proves she's that person. Hersh and Chesnutt had been friends since the 1990s; they toured together frequently and shared the same Southern-inspired oddball aesthetic. They also both battled depression, and much of Don't Suck, Don't Die deals with Hersh's attempts to ease her friend's pain. The experience, of course, was beyond painful: "I watched you fade into yourself, sick," Hersh writes. "Weird-ass junkie retard Christ. Sorry, ex-junkie. The only way you could stop suffering was to suffer some more."

The Residents - Spotted Pinto Bean (Vinyl, 1974) singer Pamela Zeibak

“Meet The Residents” is possibly the greatest debut album ever; with more idea per track that many bands, including leading avant-garde pioneers, have on a whole album. Sloppily edited and with a lo-fi production that wasn’t really what the makers would have classed as ideal; but somehow really adds to what was going on at this early point in their ‘career’; the album was unlike anything else that was around at that time, or before. In fact the only things that sound like this that have come out since have been releases by the same outfit. Even then, they never did do anything quite like this album again. More or less any track from this album could be selected as an example, and it just so happens to be this sprawling, wayward track from a wayward, sprawling debut album; where opera, Show tunes, and deformed honky tonk all nuzzle up alongside each other . It’s also worth noting that one of their early collaborators, the singer Pamela Zeibak, lends her vocal skills and Residential magic to ‘Spotted Pinto Bean’.

BELWOSKY 2020 Ball Drop

Out today (18 December), the pop-poet gets on his soapbox to have the final say on a year like no other. And backed by thumping beats too. Part rant, part poem, ‘2020 Ball Drop’ catalogues exactly where 2020 went wrong. “The lyrics came to me in a flash during this Covid19 pandemic, yet it really transpired from the news.” says Belowsky. “Absorbing all this information from CNN and other news outlets over the last year. In my mind I kept seeing the New York Ball Drop [on New Year’s Eve] and everything was on track as usual for the year. But in March the world stopped. 2020 Ball Drop is really a play on words…” In an attempt to purge the constant stream of misinformation and misery implanted into his subconscious over the course of the year, Belwosky spewed a stream of his singular spoken-word: ‘2020 Ball Drop’. From vaccines to covid-19, a sense of community to herd immunity, technological giants to tear-gas and bullets; ‘2020 Ball Drop’ is a whirlwind, time-warp trip through this most hellish of years, from its optimistic beginnings through to its bitter end. Scored by 6-minutes of post acid-house squelches and primordial techno chugs reminiscent of The Orb or 808 State, ‘2020 Ball Drop’ sees Belowsky working in collaboration with esteemed producer Nicko Mezzino. Operating in his private studio (AKA The Bunker) in Fremantle, Australia; the poet supplied the words while Mezzino wrote the music, mixed and produced. Set to be one of the final releases on Alan McGee’s Creation 23 label, this is not the first time Belowsky and McGee have crossed paths. With a mutual friend in Andy Bell ( Ride/ Oasis), the pair had been aware of each other’s work for some time, but a chance encounter at the Standard Hotel West Hollywood in LA in 2007 would set them on a collision course for their creative collaboration this year. As Belowsky reflects:“Alan took my gig there from something average to something out of this world and it became mental, a happening, it was off the hook.” Throughout his extraordinary career Belowsky has established himself as a true people’s poet. Living and travelling all over the world, he has performed at CBGBs in New York City to the Sunset Strip in LA, and hosted the Death Disco in London as just some of his many career highlights. Straddling the worlds of comedy, theatre and music, Belowsky has opened for The Charlatans at the world famous Cuckoo Club for Death Disco TV, hosted the Tony Wilson Experience in Manchester and worked with Andy Bell (Ride/Oasis) on various artistic projects. Currently residing in Perth, Australia, Belowsky has become an established media personality Down Under too. In 2016, he released his memoir: ‘Stay Greasy Baby’, a warm and candid reflection on a life well lived.Neither a serious outlook nor a playful wit can stand alone, but Belowsky has both. Famed for his prolific lyrical rants, it seems there’s just about time for one more before 2020 grinds to a halt. “I’d like to think that if aliens were to land in 2000 years from now and they heard “2020 Ball Drop” they would get an insight into what was happening on the planet earth in 2020. It would be interesting to know what the little green men would think of it. And would it become popular on their planet?…”

MAYa & Tolga Baklacioglu - Home (Martial Canterel Remix) (Vent Recordings)

MAYa and Tolga Baklacioglu 'Home' from the LP 'KINA' on VENT 2019

in kaput-magazine Danielle de Picciotto: Where were you born Maya? MAYa Hardinge: I was conceived in a caravan and born in Cambridge England. How did it come about that you moved to NYC? I first came to NY when I wanted to travel around South America and New York was suggested to me as a closer place to visit and make money for the trip. Originally I was going to go to Amsterdam. I fell in love with NY and stayed a year and a half. When I returned to England I had a boyfriend from NY, so I would visit as often as possible. A few years later I decided I wanted to move there permanently and applied to emigrate. You work in the fields of music and film. Would you say you are more of a visual or audio person? I’m not sure if I can chose… I’ve been obsessed with music since I was very little and obsessed with visuals and style since then too, I’m still playing dress up! But I would say I would have a hard time living without music. I have music on all day. Different formats in different rooms. Are you an autodidact? Definitely. Still learning! You have a radio program in which you feature mainly women – how did that come about? Yes, it’s exclusively women, as in either a female artist or always female vocals. I kind of got obsessed with the obscure records that came out in the post-punk period before my time – 1981 being a favorite year – and started a Facebook page just posting obscure records by girls. There were so many bands forming then, all trying something new, experimenting with very limited means and this DIY aesthetic, and for the first time ever many of them were women, some maybe only releasing one 7 inch. So it kind of expanded from there. Through a friend I got a radio show and started playing rare tracks and mixing it up with what women in underground and experimental music are doing now, I am constantly doing research on female led music from all over the world. The idea being that no girl will disappear into obscurity. The name comes from the A.C Maria’s Lp “One of our girls has gone missing”, an LP that was released on Mute in 89. She collaborated with the band Wire. But only had one solo LP and then kind of disappeared. I actually met her recently and she’s happy to be missing. Who are your favorite female musicians at the moment? I love what Hiro Kone, Faten Kanaan are doing currently and the voices of Nico and Catherine Ribeiro forever! Do you mainly like electronic music? I like a lot of different music and definitely love unusual female voices. I do tend to be attracted to electronic music but I find it interesting when mixed with acoustic elements too. You have just released an album together with Tolga Baklacioglu. How did this come about? Tolga Baklacioglu lives in Eskisehir in Turkey and runs the only vinyl label from their called Vent. He contacted me via Social Media after coming across my music and videos online and asked to collaborate. We’ve actually still not met and have been communicating remotely for almost two years. The videos you have released are beautiful and really unique. Do you do all of the styling yourself? Do you produce and direct your videos? I have worked a lot with film director Sebastian Mlynarski and if he had time would do all my videos with him. He's super creative and always moving forward and trying new ideas. He directed and shot the latest video. The video’s we’ve worked on together have always just been us two so we share ideas of what to shoot as we go. I also released two EP’s where I made a video for each track all with different artist friends / directors. Sebastian and I did one video that artist Raul de Nieves is in, which features his work of amazing costumes and shoes. But usually I come up with the style. I collaborated on another video with musician / filmmaker Alice Cohen that was stop animation and I suggested themes and color palettes and then helped her cut out all the little animations. I feel lucky to have so many amazing creative friends around me here, and I like collaborating.

Talking Heads - Born Under Punches - HD - Rome, Italy - 1980

In two weeks The Talking Heads took their Funk Orchestra to Rome where they performed in front of television cameras at Palazzo dello Sport. This is the band working at genius level. You can hear this line up on the 1982 live album The Name of This Band is Talking Heads. As good as it sounds, there is already a rift among the original members after songwriting credits on the collaborative Remain In Light went only to Byrne and Eno. There would be no new Talkings Heads studio album until 1983, just solo records from Harrison, Byrne and, outselling them all, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth's Tom Tom Club. On December 1 and 2, 1980 U2 opened for the expanded 9-musician line up of Talking Heads at London's Hammersmith Palais. Joining the four Heads on their tour to promote Remain In Light were guitarist Adrian Belew, Parliament/Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell, percussionist Steve Scales, bassist Busta Jones and backing vocalist Dollette McDonald. All were musicians Jerry Harrison had met, bouncing around studios in Philadelphia and New York while David Byrne was getting deeply into African music while working on My Life In The Bush of Ghosts with Brian Eno. "In the moments when this group really works, the underlying sensibility is very different from what it was before, a real radical shift," Byrne told NME. "This music, when it really comes together right, has a transcendent feeling, like a trance of some sort. "That's exactly what happens in traditional African music and other Third World music. It's something that isn't sought after in most pop music. We're aiming at something different, although some of the elements may be the same. When it works you get the feeling: forget yourself and become part of the community. It's wonderful and it doesn't happen every night.

The Waitresses I Know What Boys Like

In December of 1980 The Waitresses, a new wave band out of Akron, Ohio, released "I Know What Boys Like" on Ze Records. An underground hit, the single didn't chart until the MTV era began when it hit US#62 in early 1982. Singer Patty Donahue, whose first appearance in the video is a tight shot of her lips sucking on a cigarette, died of lung cancer at age 40.

Drew McDowall - Hypnotic Congress

DREW MCDOWALL (UK, EX -COIL) In the early 80s Drew McDowall came from his homeland Scotland to London and quickly sank in a movement which was later described in a famous book England Hidden Reverse. Previously active in postpunk underground, Drew was continuously present on the scene, since the cultural revolution initiated by Throbbing Gristle, further developed by Psychic TV and Current 93. His surname can surely be associated with Rose McDowall – an expressive vocalist of ultra sweet pop duo Strawberry Switchblade. His ex-wife's voice is well known from unforgettable songs of Death In June, Current 93 or Sorrow. In the 80s and 90s Drew McDowall collaborated closely with Coil. He was present while creating, recording the legendary tracks and he participated in the non-musical passions of the departed musicians. He co-produced the classic albums of Coil, as well as their epic collaborations, with which Peter Sleazy Christopherson and John Balance added a finishing touch to their legendary venture. For nearly 20 years Drew McDowall has been in New York, where he continues work among sound artists of new experimental scene, post – post - post industrial etc. His solo albums Collapse and Unnatural Chanel were released by NY based label Dais Records.

CLOCK DVA - '4 Hours' - 7" 1981

Clock DVA's music of the late 80s and early 90s remains indestructible matrix, which served as a point of reference for that time's rising techno or the full-fledged electro-industrial EBM scene. Precise beat of CDVA imprinted the precursors of the Berlin and Frankfurt minimalist tech-minimal, and it stayed present in its further evolutions. CDVA has roots in Sheffield in North England – the birthplace of the classics, like Cabaret Voltaire, Hula, In The Nursery or Human League. CDVA began in times of the punk revolution which validated every experiment, linked materials and emancipation of any artistic work. From the beginning, the brain of Clock DVA has been Adi Newton – an individual, for whom any limits of pop culture or avantgarde are unknown. Clock DVA debuted in 1980 with the album White Souls in Black Suits, released by Industrial Records, belonging to Throbbing Gristle. Their music was a complete antithesis of what could have seemed to be an “industrial stereotype”. However, the only thing that industrial and Clock DVA had in common was experimental flair, psychedelic sound, using loops, the so-called white noise and electronics. With the mature form of “syncopated”, jazz-electronic DVA we can deal on the 80s' albums, Thirst and Advantage, which cleverly linked funky pos tpunk, new wave with death disco. Clock DVA later evolved from experimental anti-pop post punk and dark quasi-jazz, to purely electronic sounds of the albums released in the second part of the decade, such as Buried Dreams, Man-Amplified or Sign, which will be the cornerstone of their concert in Wroclaw. The manifest-track entitled The Hacker had been released many years (in 1988) before its online revolution. Futuristic work of CDVA enriched electronic music with interests of XX-century art, especially the idea of man-machine and constructivist demands of linking the man and technology. The audiovisual concept of Clock DVA always means transmission of information. Their realisations supported with well-researched works, bring thoughts of Tatlin, Lissitzky or Duchamp, they expose counter-cultural, hermetic literature, paranormal phenomena. From Lautreamont to surrealism, occultism and magic. The hypnotic, postindustrial music of CDVA is a reflection of the relation: a single man vs technology, it depicts extraterrestial drive towards the unknown, fascination by the cosmos and its exploration, it contains both: the experiment and bounciness, and this is exactly what their set in the Gothic

Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio - [ Mercury Rising] Seduced By The Kisses of Ci...

Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio rose from the ashes of Archon Satani in May 1993 as founding member Tomas Pettersson apperceived the desire to canalize his remaining creativity through the aesthetic portrayal of the undivided spiritual and intellectual kinship between Light and Dark, Life and Death, Male and Female, Love and Hate, Beauty and Depravity, War and Peace - thus the genesis of Equilibrium and the advancement beyond into the perfection of Roses. Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio is an aesthetic constellation situated somewhere on the illusive boundary between the impending apocalypse the orgies of ancient Rome; and accompanied by the sound of acoustic guitars, cyclic soundscapes, strings and percussions; come songs on the threshold of the sensually seductive and morally reprehensible; gospels on the verge of the conjecturally acclaimed and whats soon to be condemned. The music is contemporarily referred to as Apocalyptic Pop, but its continuing variation over the past thirteen years extends further and perfectly congregates a variation of nuances into the distinguishing essence of that which is Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio.

Karol Szymanowski played on the Theremin & the Glass Harp

Szymanowski is one of our favorite Polish composers. Even though he originally wrote his Etude in B-flat minor for piano, we are certain that he would have enjoyed seeing it performed on two such unique instruments: the glass harp and the theremin. We invited Grégoire Blanc, an extremely talented young French musician, to perform with us and are more than happy to share the results with you. We are grateful to the Polish Ministry of Culture for their generous support in the form of a “Culture on the Web” (Kultura w sieci) scholarship. The amazing camerawork courtesy of Barbara Szafraniec and Angelica Blanc.
