"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.

(cat no. plana-l 18vocson065).
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

peter brötzmann (reeds)
steve noble (drums)

recorded live at ateliers claus, brussels, january 19th 2013. mixed and mastered by michael w. huon, brussels 2013.

after the great 2012 record by brötzmann / noble / edwards, the worse the better, peter brötzmann and steve noble started to play some gigs as a duo. it worked out really well -- wonderful pieces of music that had to be put on cd; an expert, you might even say telepathic, interplay between those two outstanding musicians -- sometimes delicate and swinging, sometimes full-force free jazz.

after the internationally and heavily praised caspar brötzmann massaker in the early '90s, not much was heard from the german "modern primitive" guitar player caspar brötzmann, aside from some collaborations for theater. now he is back with a new band -- extreme, heavy, intense.

in summer 2012 he was invited by the a l'arme festival for a special gig with swiss musicians michael wertmüller (drums) and marino pliakas (ebass) (those two form the group full blast with caspar's father and free-jazz legend peter brötzmann). the show went so well that they decided to continue doing music together, record an album and tour.

in spring 2013, nohome played some gigs in russia and the moers festival. improvised music, noise, guitar walls, industrial, and jazz meet and get a performative enhancement through special guest fm einheit (ex-einstürzende neubauten) on two pieces.

rangdalive in krefeld” ten inch single record

  • silver nile

  • night porter
  • serrated edges
unrock press release ::
rangdalive in krefeld 10
unrock ep001 (black vinyl)

in 1980, 33 years ago, a band came to krefeld, a small town at the lower rhine area, which later became one of the most influential bands of their decade. this heat from london, a trio who´s sound comparison to industrial rock does not really hit the point, but which does not fail as well……the record button was pushed and the recording which was released under the title live in krefeld reached independent and underground appreciation. 30 years later, another influential band came to town, a trio as well. americans. divers in their setting, with impact, virtuosity and vigour. rangda. an underground-supergroup consisting of chris corsano (björk), ben chasny (six organs of admittance) and richard bishop (sun city girls). complex, exotic, instrumental rock with oriental taste. rangda came twice to town (2010 & 2012) and the golden nuggets of each performance are now available on a limited edition 10”. the title is: live in krefeld.

the  8 minutes epic “silver nile”, the centerpiece from their recent album formerly extinct” is accompanied by a bone dry version of “night porter”, performed long before the release of the album  version. “serrated edges”, an exploding wall of noise, caught the virus of  improvisation, and comes close to heavy free jazz at times. similar dynamic structures can also be found on early sst releases. (elliott sharp, etc.).



limited edition of 400 copies.

cassauna press release ::
claudio rocchetti & pietro riparbelli
three quarter tone piano pieces
sauna18 cass

this work was created using short wave radio signals, field recordings, dusty analogue devices, as well as samples from "three quarter tone piano pieces" of the american modernist composer charles ives (1874-1954) as central sound source.

pietro riparbelli is a philosopher, composer and sound-multimedia artist based in livorno (tuscany). he is working in italy with the enrico fornello contemporary art gallery.

riparbelli's performances and installations have been presented at d'amelio terras contemporary art gallery (ny), equinox festival (london),nuit blanche (paris), magazzino d'arte moderna (rome), palazzo delle papesse (siena), flora (florence), fundació tàpies (barcelona), base progetti per l'arte (florence).

he works with performances, sound installations and recorded works and in the last three years he has been collaborating through selected projects with massimo bartolini, nico vascellari, philippe petit, fabrizio modenese palumbo, francisco lopez, christina kubisch, seth cluett, yannick franck and others.

he is a curator/executive producer of the independent music label radical matters - editions label with the new series "metasound" and he his the curator of the project aedo "curatorial and sound practice" to investigate the dimension between music and contemporary art.

the work of claudio rocchetti is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings. using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio cassettes, samplers, radios, and microphones, often incorporating other objects and traditional instruments, berlin-based rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as sheer matter, mass, and impact. "i have a very direct approach to sound, trying to act on instruments and devices," he says.

randy gibsonthe first pillar appearing in supernova” cassette

  • the first pillar imploding the principal drone under the addition of 9 in melodic counterpoint from apparitions of the four pillars

  • the first pillar exploding the upper drone with the violin analogue, the nestled melodic 27, and the apparition of the eternal tonic from apparitions of the four pillars
cassauna press release ::
randy gibson
the first pillar appearing in supernova
sauna15   tape

the two sides of the first pillar appearing in supernova could be considered as opposing explorations of the simplest section of my ongoing work, apparitions of the four pillars. when approached by cassauna to make this cassette, i knew i wanted to use the mechanism of the cassette to create the work. as with my previous work for cassette, analog apparitions on the tapeworm, the sound of the cassette is integral. cassettes of individual vocal drones were recorded onto a marantz pmd222. using the volume and speed capabilities of the marantz, i worked with a single line at a time to create a dense harmonic world from a simple intervallic source.

biography

randy gibson is a composer and performer based in brooklyn. he works with structure, evolutionary compositional models, and improvisation to create enveloping and ritualistic works in just intonation. by presenting his work with visual and ritualistic elements (incense, video, lighting), gibson encourages the audience to embrace stillness and become absorbed in the sonic experience.

since 2003, gibson has studied with seminal minimalist pioneer la monte young which has brought great clarity and devotion to his work. since 2005 he has studied raga singing in the kirana tradition with la monte young and marian zazeela.

gibson's music has been presented around the world including at festivals in germany, korea, and mexico. his works have been commissioned by choreographers (2004-2005's separate haven commissioned by kim olson / sweetedge), record labels (2010's analog apparitions commissioned by the tapeworm), ensembles (2010-2012's circular trance... commissioned by ekmeles vocal ensemble), and individual performers (2013's nine minutes for the four pillars in duet with the paris drones recalling the midwinter starfield commissioned by erik carlson of ice).

in 2010, under a grant from the american music center, gibson traveled to london to premiere the third analog pillar. the performance was hailed by the liminal as "a moment of pleasingly soporific and mind-emptying purity." his just intonation piano recording, aqua madora, was selected by textura as one of the top 10 albums of 2011.

gibson is the artistic director of avant media, a non-profit organization dedicated to collaborative artistic endeavors, and, since, 2010, has curated the annual avant music festival of composer-driven performances.

may 2010 release ; to-the-letter repro (albeit, a paste-on ; but a nice one at that) of this scandalously kvlt 1971private press” lp by wiener aktionismus (aka “viennese actionism” or just “actionist) co-founder (along with hermann nitsch, günter brus, and rudolf schwarzkogler) otto muehl ...

starting with some rather inspired sound-poetry, the record whips along at breakneck speed through a bunch of different modes ; muehl is heard screaming about a variety of topics (“a terrible thought” alone covers a wide range of smut) before riding a piano around the room like a 3-legged donkey for a good 5 minutes (listen to the sound-sample for pretty much the whole thing) ... this is followed by a series of proclamations, a muddled bit of group insanity (ala the “aam 1” lp), further baby-speak babble-runes, & a long section miming, then crying along to the strauss’ “blue danube waltz” ...

... the second side continues in said fashion (otto whispers a little pillow-talk before sharing an orgasm or two with a female accomplice, admonishes us for listening ; a group sets out to properly emulate caveman rhetoric ; does his best bernard heidsieck tape-echo impression ; finishes with a round of his beloved shlager) ; at no point do the proceedings dip into also-ran modes - he’s pretty much certifiably insane throughout, pausing not for a second before creeping you out with further guttural grunts & demonic howl-wail(s) ...


absolutely seminal sound-art work ; the last missing piece of the whole actionist puzzle, finally issued for mass consumption ... highest recommendation !!!
no label press release ::

otto muehl is an austrian convicted child molester, who is best known as one of the co-founders as well as the most exciting participant of viennese actionism. he's the sort of guy who might fuck a swan, and then scream a little poem about it. in the sixties his aim was 'to overcome painting on canvas through staging the process of its destruction'. he made rhizomatic structures with scrap iron ("gerümpelplastiken"), but soon proceeded to the "aktion" in the vein of the new york happenings. gradually, muehl began to distance himself from "aktion". he regarded the "happening as a bourgeois artform, mere art".

this is an exact reproduction of his 1971 "psycho motorik" lp, which documents that very departure.

february 2010 release ; picture-perfect reissue of this highly obscure(d) 1970 lp (originally released on the pre-caprice expo norr label alongiside sides by thorkell sigurbjörnsson, karl-birger blomdahl, and others) featuring a bunch of amazing field-recorded & tape-sound laced folk-psych instrumentals captured & channeled by solveig bark & tråd grås och stenar / (international) harvester / pärson sound’s bo anders persson ...

travelling throughout sweden that year (landing at many of the yearly festivals more famously worked by tgos & ih-offshoots ) bark & persson both documented & participated in an improvised array of ad-hoc violin, hand-percussion, mouth-harp and bass/guitar/harpjams”, captured in-situ (along with lots of environmental sounds ; children laughing, wind, crowds) with persson capturing everything in blurry detail on his portable tape-machine (the outcome of which makes up the contents of the music herein) ...

grayest-of-grey-area edition, with paste-on covers & a repro of the original insert (detailed below) ... anyone with even a passing interest in the whole swedish commune-psych crossroads with see this for what it is ; one of the last undocumented pieces of a highly fascinating puzzle ... highly recommended !!!
no label press release ::

grey area exact reproduction lp of a swedish release from 1970.

a bit of confusion surrounds this release: the album has been credited to träd, gräs och stenar, but they aren't featured on it. bo anders persson did, in fact, in collaboration with solvieg bark, compile, edit and released this album. bo anders persson, was a member of the legendary swedish bands harvester, international harvester, pärson sound, träd, gräs och stenar. solveig bark was one of a few young composers that through the unm (young nordic music festivals) would become a contemporary of erkki kurenniemi, folke rabe, etc. "reportage: spela själv" roughly translates to play yourself. it contains field recordings of amateurs playing / making sounds. raga concrète, if you will. a fine, rare, and lovely piece to behold.

august 2010 release ; sorted collection of yellow swanspete swanson’s recent solo activity, largely released in tiny cassette runs with less-than-ideal sound quality ...

... a fact that makes this audiophile-grade lp pressing such a necessity !!! working with a palette of sand-blasted guitar, drum-machine pulse & tape saturation, the music here is neither “doom” nor “shoegaze”, coming in closer to the elegiac, “privatebedroom symphonies of new zealand travelers like roy montgomery than yellow swans’ often teutonic pulse ...

lovely lp pressing with a substantial heft to it ; mms’ copies were drop-shipped straight from the hand of the god ; as such i doubt many others will be packing this gem of a record ... highly recommended !!!

wiw collects edits of swanson's tapes from 2008-2009 ...  tracks featured are from denim life, unlimited options, mr. entertainment and signs of life. everything was edited down to form one dynamic album that is as focused on the most "song" elements from the tracks on the cassettes. generally the music here is woozy smears of fuzz guitar melodicism, alien smear tape collage, harsh failure fidelity and proto-bonehead synth.

ex-yellow swans, ex-musician, etc.
