"the poet’s tongue"
(cat no. plana-c 24vocsona086)
lp record
edition limited to 270 copies

ulises carrión's audio works clearly reflect his passion for language, its structures, sounds and meanings. he greatly enjoyed grammatically dissecting languages and trying to understand and explore their structures. his many initiatives and projects bear witness to his boundless obsessions with communication and circulation of works and ideas as a cultural strategy.

this lp includes hamlet for two voices (1977) in which two voices read out the names of the characters in the shakespearean play as they appear in the script, audibly representing the structure of the roles the characters perform. poema (1977) orally represents the structure and spatial characteristics of a poem, by listing all its structural elements: words, paragraphs and verses, etc. the lp also includes aritmetica, three spanish pieces, first spanish lesson as well as the legendary 45 revoluciones por minuto, the grooviest track ever created within the context of conceptual art.

all pieces, recorded at the instituut voor sonologie in utrecht between september and october 1977, have in common their refusal of discursiveness. they are not meant to be true or beautiful. each piece is a series of vocal units that unfolds according to simple rules. their beginning and end are arbitrary – they could go on infinitely.

they should go on.
they go on.

first lp ever issued by ulises carrion who in 1975 created the legendary bookshop-gallery other books & so, the first space dedicated exclusively to artists’ publications such as artists’ records, books, magazines, postcards.

edition limited to 270 copies.

lp record

edition limited to 350 copies

after releasing the first lps ever published by isidore isou, gil j wolman, hidlgo&marchetti’s zaj… here is another historical premiere, or the first lp ever issued by french pre-situationist jean-louis brau.

jean-louis brau (1930-1985) at the age of 20 joined along with gil j wolman, isidore isou's  lettrist group, creating in this context (the same of wolman's “mégapneums”, dufrêne's “crirythmes”, lemaître's “hyperphonies” and isou's “poèmes ciselants”) what he called instrumentations verbales”. in 1952 he recorded on a lathe the soundtrack to the unfinished film “la barque de la vie courante” (the first ever recording of experimental poetry). in the same year, with debord, berna and wolman, he gave birth to the internationale lettriste, from which he was eventually rejected for his military deviation. after the indochina war (where he run a brothel and traded opium), brau joined the french army in algeria, between 1956 and 1958. in 1963, back in paris, brau gave birth to a deuxième internationale lettriste together with wolman and dufrêne. he also designed an astonishing métagraphic roman: “no more”.

he approached everything in an explosive way, creating a body of work which is discontinuous, small and incomplete, in which he sometimes achieved some major results: for example with his sound poetry, as demonstrated by “turn back nightingale” (1972), in which brau makes references to françois dufrêne, on a background of disarticulated drums and pre-punk saturations. also included on this one-sided lp are “elégie elémentaire” and “ataloche roche”, both recorded in 1961 during isidore isou's conference at the musée d’art moderne in paris, as well as instrumentation verbale” and “cantate pour l’interdiction de mandrake”, both recorded in 1963 and first published in “poésie physique”, book w/ 3 singles (brau, dufrêne, wolman), achèle, in 1965.

edition limited to 350 copies reproducing a page from “no more” on the front sleeve, as well as an essay by frederic acquaviva.

"Œuvre désintégrale"
(cat no. plana-d 19vocson078)
3cd box set
edition limited to 300 copies

alga marghen presents one of the most impressive sound poetry anthologies ever published, introducing you to the sound works of the nouveau realiste artist françois dufrene. his work, along with that of gil j wolman and brion gysin, was a strong influence for experimental poets like henri chopin, bernard heidsieck and ake hodell. previously issued in 2007 as a 4lp box set, this first edition on cd also includes “crirythme pour tinguely” as bonus track.

françois dufrene could be considered the younger of the first generation sound poets. already in the lettrist group when he was only 16 years old, with his own style marked by an hyper-powerful voice. in 1953, at the age of 23, he became ultra-lettrist, starting his first crirhythms by overpassing the alphabet in the perspective of the physical improvised scream. with the crirhythms sound poetry enters for the first time in the factory of projective sounds. in the beginning dufrene uses the tape recorder only to document his creations.these recordings show him that through the tape machine his poems could reached deeper and wider creative dynamics. since the mid-1950s the tape-machine becomes for him a poetical and experimental tool and dufrene fully develops its potentials with stereophonic recordings as well as with the superimposition of his crirhythms. the loudspeakers amplifies sounds while the microphone captures even the most detailed concrete sound produced by his voice. the physical tempest he produces is a real concrete electronic sound attack. dufrene produced primitive, brutal poems opening the path of vocal sounds to contemporary composers: it's known that pierre henry was deeply inspired by dufrene. the anthology presented here includes 10 crirhythms from different periods dating from 1965 to 1976, plus “crirythme pour tinguely” (first issued on a 7 single included in revue axe no.2 in 1975 and not available on the alga marghen 4lp anthology from 2007).

also included is "osmose-art", a long piece from 1969 divided in two suites where dufrene superimposes his crirhythms to classical music. a similar technique was applied a few years earlier adding jazz music (specially drum and percussion pieces) to poems marked by strong lettristic esthetic. two of those "lecture-collage" dating from 1965 are presented here, as well as two "comptinuum" from his early on-progress works started in 1958.

françois dufrene also developed unique performances, with live reading of his written text. the most famous is “tombeau de pierre larousse”, published in 1958. this is a work half way between the written text and the sound poem whose unity is achieved through dufrene performing it. it's a masterpiece of synthesis of active poetry. "eryximaque, suite choreographique au tombeau de pierre larusse" is also included in this anthology.

apart from the crirythmes that henri chopin issued on his revue ou disc magazine (the complete ou anthology is available from alga marghen as a 4cd set) and a few short pieces issued on obscure sound poetry anthologies in the end of the 1960's, françois dufrene work is practically unavailable. this 3 cd anthology, conceived by the dufrene himself as a 3 cassette edition privately issued by guy schraenen in the mid-1970s (only a handful of copies made), includes only previously unpublished sound works that finally fully documents the creativity of such a radical artist.

edition limited to 300 copies, including 3cd as well as a 24 page booklet including two essays by dufrene, the biography, the complete discography as well as original photos of various performances from the 1960s and 1970s.

"poème-partition x"
(cat no. plana-h 1vocson074)
book + cd

edition of 350 numbered copies

"poème-partition x" was created by bernard heidsieck during 1960 and recorded in october the same year. a few excerpts of the 1st and 4th movements were performed on november 22nd, 1960 at the quatre saisons gallery in paris, during the festival of avant-garde art. "poème-partition x" might be considered heidsieck's first major work, whose duration (more than 40 minutes long) never allowed the author to give a public reading of it. its destination was a record (released by alga marghen in 1996, starting the vocson lp series, 36 years after its creation)!

alga marghen is proud to now present this new edition of "poème-partition x", extended to the cd format and included in a luxury 96 pages hardbound book, limited to 350 numbered copies. the book reproduces for the first time the complete score, a visual wonder and a major experimental printed work. bernard heidsieck memories of an historic lecture at the jean tinguely atelier is included as an introduction, as well as his testimony on ian sommerville and brion gysin's "dream machine". also on the cd is a lecture of extracts of "poème-partition x" accompanied by the saxophone of the american painter larry rivers. this recording from 1962 was not included in the lp edition and is here presented for the first time.

in august 1962, bernard heidsieck went with john ashberry, the american poet, to dinner at the studio of jean tinguely and niky de saint phalle. larry rivers had a studio in the same place and was also there. tinguely prepared grilled meat, skewered on one of his rotating sculptures. after dinner rivers returned to his studio and began to play, alone and for himself. he earned his living, at the time, by playing sax at an after-hours jazz club. so, while he was playing bernard heidsieck joined him in his studio and suggested that they do an improvisation together. something that heidsieck had never done before, and have never done since! larry rivers immediately accepted, and an appointment was set up at heidsieck home, for a few days later. august 6th, 1962. a dinner party was organised for the same guests who had been at tinguely's place and this unique 17 minutes improvisation was recorded, but untill now never released. it was, however, presented at the first fylkingen text-sound composition festival in stockholm in 1968.

lp record

edition of 385 copies

alga marghen proudly presents an lp edition including two experimental sound works by gherasim luca, created in close connection to sten hanson who invited the rumenian artist at fylkingen in the very beginning of the 1970s and made him discover the possibilities of the advanced ems electronic music studio of stockholm. the two recordings presented here are quite unique as they are the only poems by gherasim luca created through the use of electronic manipulations.

as henri chopin wrote some years later in his legendary "poésie sonore internationale" book, ghérasim luca made a big impression at the third stockholm festival in 1970. luca was born in bucarest in 1913. before leaving to israel he had a leading role among the roumanian surrealist group. he eventually moved to paris where he lived untill the end of his life in 1992. gherasim  luca work is very personal, giving his poems a very uncommon and ironic character. again henri chopin underlines that  "in his recordings, which are not many, he superimposes his very warm voice, marked by his roumanian accent; it's a sound wonder. in fact luca is not a sound poet. he is more a speaker who managed, without complex, to enter into the fylkingen studio vortex. on 4 tracks and with 32 loudspeakers, thanks to his superb voice and his instinctive knowledge of the electronic studio which amplifies words, he gives great pleasure to the listener, even if the latter can not understand french".

autres secrets du vide et du plein (april 1971) and crimes sens initiales (april 1972) were both recorded one track at the time on a 4 track tape and afterwards subjected to electronic treatments. they were recorded in sweden at ems and first performed at the 1971 and 1972 text-sound festivals of stockholm.

edition limited to 385 copies, also including the reproduction of a worderful drawing by gherasim luca on the front cover, a photo portrait of the author by gilles ehrmann from 1959 and an essay by henri chopin.

the lp contains "music out of the moon" and "perfume set to music" one of the first electonic chillout music composed, originally released in 1947 and 1948 on 10" 78rpm. an unusual mix of different styles and musics, these two records were unique collaborations between three disparate talents, who envisioned a world of sound inspired by science fiction, exotica music, and meditations. without them the theremin could perhaps never have been considered in a pop context. the influence of this music is clear in the multiform artist sun ra who covered the song "possession" in his second lp "jazz by sun ra".

an amazing krautrock / nature hybrid masterwork. warm washes of synthesizer, tribal war drums and drones galore all mixed with the sounds of the rainforest, crickets, frogs, even flies - osmose was originally released in 1978 and found minimalist composer ariel kalma using all manner of keyboards, saxophone, harmonium, delays, effects, even circular breathing, to compose gorgeously minimal, softly spacey slow drifting ambient soundscapes, which were then mixed with the sounds of the rainforest (recorded by richard tinti).

it's a single lp reissue of the double album of 1978

the project, and album, is a radical inversion and consolidation of the duo’s respective backgrounds in performance art, punk bands inspired by the febrile humidity and sensory overload of brasilian carnival music, they temper layeres of roiling, propulsive percussion with electronic drones, effects and tribalist vocals to militant, hypnotic effect.

six tracks charge between technoid polymetrics, kinky minimalism and meditative ritual with particular focus on rhythmelodic cadence and carefully constructed atmospheres of festive evil.

hospital productions press release ::
prurient - cocaine death - 12"

first time on vinyl and remastered by matt colton with minimal black and white cover with foil block print. violent and desperate electronic noise in the tradition of anna nicole. sm electronics.

cocaine death is a compilation of three of prurient's most sought-after cassette releases: 2007's' cocaine death, caribbean overdose and tylenol murders, eventually compiled as cocaine death for a cd release in 2008. this is the first time this collection has ever been available on vinyl, now fully remastered for the format. cocaine death brings together several strands and signifiers from the prurient catalog, containing some of its most visceral and experimental works, alongside some of its most evocative. from the arpeggiated/submerged noise of opener "pretext (bahamian burial)" to the padded, pulsating closer "postscript (coke cunts)" the material here explores the relationship between futile pleasure, substance and escape; escape being a myth. cocaine death (originally c-10 packaged in an envelope, limited to 46 copies) is one of the most sought-after prurient cassettes. the content is based on the glamour and destruction of toxic nightlife. caribbean overdose (originally a c-10, packaged in a standard shell package and limited to 100 copies) explores a different but strangely direct topic of the sexual reproductive life of plants. further examination into the life of scientific advancement and education. tylenol murders (originally a c-10, packaged in an oversized envelope and limited to 10 copies) takes the sounds and concepts of the aforementioned releases and expands the sounds to further limits of cracked static, strained vocals and strange melodic loops.

hospital productions press release ::
there's so much that could be said about ron morelli, his l.i.e.s. label, or the fact that his debut album comes to you via hospital productions, but instead, here are some words from the man himself.

“i'm a regular guy, enjoy a good steak, drinking beer, and occasionally a game of pro basketball, republican talk radio... you know... all the good stuff. the music on this record is about immediacy, pressure, monotony, and stress. a great deal of the feelings conveyed within come from the fear and repulsion of basic human interaction, like if someone sitting behind you on the plane sneezes on you or being forced to shake the clammy hand of a stranger and the intimate paranoia of the mind and dealing with it or not.

not to make some deep intellectual fuck show of this, as it is not, it's just stress music jammed out quick and recorded. last year, i was staying in an area where all the hookers did their work. all they would do is smoke cigarettes, read the paper, talk on their cell phones, and spit. they would spit a lot. i would step in that hooker spit on the way home, often tracking it into the apartment building as i entered. this is where the title of the record comes from.”


the album features eight electronic variants; from house and industrial tape experiments to saturated metallic beat tracks. mastered and cut by matt colton at alchemy.

hospital productions press release ::
ron morelli - backpages - ep

the l.i.e.s. kingpin returns with a 30 minute warehouse-bound ep followup to his ‘spit’ album
3 new tracks plus an extended 9 minute version of ‘crack microbes’
mastered and cut by matt colton at alchemy

ron morelli returns to stare down the ‘floor with four pieces written during the stress-busting sessions for ‘spit’.
the muggy, droning welt of ‘public consumption’ kicks off with the sound of new york techno shot from the hip, while ‘another hit’ vents a vintage era-regis style built on skull-chipping snares and effluent acid modulation.
the album
s writhing batacuda banger, ‘crack microbes’ reappears here as an extra-ferric extended version, sustaining the hypnotic intensity for nine minutes of panic attack acid and febrile cowbells, while ‘’rushing again’ escorts us to a close with triplet techno shook down by railgun snares and a grotty synthline.

vatican shadow - remember your black day - lp

'militant religious industrial'

remember your black day is the debut album proper from vatican shadow, the first material conceived and produced as a full-length by dominick fernow for the project following almost a dozen tapes (mostly released on hospital productions) and vinyl editions (released by the likes of blackest ever black, modern love, and type) over the last three years. none of the eight tracks included have been released before on any other format. at a time when the scene is saturated with "noise techno," the album is almost celebratory by contrast, balancing caustic licks of distortion and oppressive bass with cleanly mixed synth tones and ricocheting claps in a shell-shocked, surreal soundsphere. with production assistance from juan mendez (silent servant), the album includes the most direct and propulsive vatican shadow material yet, continuing an evolutionary shift away from the complex, collage-based narrative of those cassette releases into more visibly direct contact with the listener. there is a functional connection to dance music here, honing in on the human element embedded within a subject matter so fraught with inhumanity.

now available on vinyl for the first time, following on from an excellent lp for blackest ever black and a 12" for bed of nails. the project has become one of dominick fernow's most intriguing, offering an artificial, unnerving take on both ambient and more propulsive electronic music, in turns reminding us of everything from aphex twin's selected ambient works vol. ii to john carpenter, vangelis' blade runner soundtrack, leyland kirby, classic chain reaction, demdike stare and, of course, fernow's own myriad productions under various aliases (prurient, vatican shadow, etc.). for the most part, the project has been an experiment in tonal dread and dankest atmospheres, but on folklore venom rhythms play a more prominent role, pacing anxiously below the dense murk of "upside down left eye," or as a stodgy techno bedrock to the inclement conditions of "the spirit wore the shoes of the boy," or a sputtering, diesel-powered chug to the noxious vibes of "black magic originated in nature." factor the petrifying gloom of "spirit companion sick-bed" and the unheimlich, exotic sonic ciphers of "malaysia yellow herbs," and you have one of the strongest releases on hospital productions yet.

hospital productions present a heavy 30-minute session of layered drone and tormented, bass-heavy bombast from max gudmunson's virile games project, now available on vinyl for the first time after a sold-out micro edition of cassettes in 2013.

operating somewhere between his label-mate lussuria's gothic ambience, the ear-bleaching concrète of helm, and the more blown-out cinematic visions of leyland kirby, wounded laurel oscillates between sublime and wretched with a gripping night-time narrative.

  • temptation & desire
  • a path eternal
  • utopian disaster (end)
hospital productions press release ::
negative fascination is the first official full-length album from silent servant. juan mendez has achieved international acclaim as a dj and is one of the founding producers of the infamous and highly-influential sandwell district label. long-time followers will feel the effects of a die cast over a decade of precision and dedication to underground minimalist electronic music. mendez blends his previously-stated interpretations of early post-punk, filtered through the monolithic works of basic channel with his own progressively nihilistic vision of industrial music. he utilizes a relentless and uncompromising mastery of hard-as-nails sequencer techno combined with dystopian atmospherics filling the void. negative fascination bridges disparate factions on ideological grounds, regardless of sound in the age of mutation.

mastered and cut by matt colton at air studios, london.

june 2011 release ; ... auspicious debut lp (after a series of great to really great tapes for hospital, ides, jugular forest, and his own r&m) from lukestillbirthmoldof, “dedicated to non-existent siblings.” ...

that this is appearing via hospital productions is almost a red herring ; the bent-neck frisell-isms & gorgeous, sub-audible cycling sine-throb that open the lp’s a-side (listen to the sound-sample) wouldn’t be out of place on a tim hecker record, yet framed here by luke’s preeminent, real-time guitar / composition chops they become something wholly his own, worthy of a fate far greater than this collector-aimed pressing will afford them ...

an excellent, mature set of music from one of boston’s best ; highly recommended !!!

june 2011 release ; vinyl version (with a bonus track ; a summoning cover, no less) of the seventh album from this long-running russian black metal band (based around brothers dmitri & denis popov) ; their first recorded in a proper studio (nice to hear the black metal guitar spec captured in a less guesswork-oriented fidelity) ...
hospital productions press release ::
blackdeath - katharsis: kalte lieder aus der hölle - lp

vinyl edition of the latest full length from russia's unique and enigmatic blackdeath. includes alternate cover art and bonus track of the band covering summoning's der flug der nazgul. edition of 500 copies.

we are proud to announce the new album of this long running russian black metal legend. violent, angular, and twisting original black metal with disturbing clear voices from the 666 dimension.

further words from marco of seed stock records regarding the new blackdeath:

hot blood in the frozen wastes, tormented sleeps, no rest, no peace - always some war to be fought. black death keep fighting, living life as war.

on this new album, all of the wildness and violence that black death have been renowned for have now hardened into an idiosyncratic and cracked style: manic vocals that switch between black rasp and psychotic singing, nordic style riffs that are somehow bent into a weapon with sharper angles, and a song progression that is equal parts percussive brawl and wide-eyed revelation.

after 6 albums you'd think that they would have plateaued, or grown tired, but no. rather, here, you find them in the strongest form since the band's inception back in 1998. they now have finally secured themselves a real drummer, and full-professional studio sound. for some underground black metal bands, that might equal an awkward combination, but black death have always been stubbornly focused on quality of riff and refined composition of song which translates perfectly in this level of production.

"black death means black metal" and effectively it is presented here on katharsis without the trappings of politic or theologian rhetoric, and it's given in its most potent and straightforward dosage.
