We think your work may have some link to this specific subject or that you may be able to pass the information to someone who would be interested.
Once this first edition is created, we will then be able to actually set up the diffusion process and meetings we wish to organize around this video library.
You can mail us at

Reue Um Reue - RUR010 - 2 × LP, Limited Edition, Compilation

DISCOGS : "Born in late 1997 the Vienna-based Nový Svět set out to bring some confusion into the so-called industrial uniformity. The group is neither tied to any musical style nor to any language. Each of the five albums released (Rumorarmonio, Faccia a faccia, Cuori di petrolio, Venezia, Chappaqua) introduced the always growing audience to a new aspect of the group.
Nový Svět was one of the very first projects to be released on Albin Julius' Hau Ruck! label where it found a home for its own recordings but also for many collaborations with other groups from the label's roster (Mushroom's Patience, Dernière Volonté, Foresta Di Ferro). Until today, Nový Svět has been pushing the limits of musical categories aside to establish a unique mixture of folk, experimental and haunting neo-surrealism."

Ultra creates deeply anxious collages of sound and voice in a mixture of fear and beauty. There are some places where they scream their faces off, but mostly it is the nature of the sounds themselves: hordes of insects, demonic sighs, electric buzzes, rumbles, creaking that gets under your skin and into your head, whether you want it to or not."

Lovely Music Ltd. -LML 1021
Recorded at York University Electronic Media Studios (Toronto, Ontario), October/November 1976, performed by trumpetist Jon Hassell with the help of Larry Polansky, brazilian percussionist Nanà Vasconcelos, David Rosenboom, Andy Jerison, Bill Winant & Nicholas Kilbourn.
"Composer/trumpeter Jon Hassell is the visionary creator of a style of music he describes as Fourth World, a mysterious, unique hybrid of music both ancient and digital, composed and improvised, Eastern and Western. After composition studies and university degrees in the USA, he went to Europe to study electronic and serial music with Karlheinz Stockhausen. Several years later, he returned to New York where his first recordings were made with minimalist masters La Monte Young and Terry Riley, through whom he met the Hindustani raga master, Pandit Pran Nath, and embarked on a lifelong quest to transmute his teacher's Kirana vocal mastery into a new trumpet sound and style. In the last two decades, he has recorded albums which have, over the years, become so widely appropriated that many of their innovations have become woven anonymously into the texture of contemporary music high and low."

A1 Toucan Ocean
A2 Viva Shona
A3 Hex
A4 Blues Nile
B1 Vernal Equinox
B2 Caracas Night September 11, 1975

"[Vernal Equinox] introduced what Hassell called his "fourth world" style, one that unified world music with advanced electronic and futuristic techniques. Subsequent albums have further developed this vision.
"Toucan Ocean" opens with gentle steady percussion and two chords. Soon the muted and modified trumpet joins in with a charming birdcall-like timbre.
"Viva Shona" has a recording of a bird evironment with the trumpet making distant calls. A complex but gentle Mbira (African thumb piano) part soon enters.
"Hex" has a quasi-random funky bass with percussion that is both steady and like snake rattles and hisses. An electronically-modified trumpet makes a deep bamboo flute-like sound that evokes spirits.
"Blues Nile" against a drone, a sorrowful yet dignified melody is played and delayed in deep reverb as if across the desert vastness.
"Vernal Equinox" is a 22-minute improvisation in the spirit of a raga with a long arhythmic first section (alap) and a gentle rhythmic second section. The trumpet is backed up by a gentle electronic drone and excellent laid-back tabla, dumbek and conga playing.
"Caracas Night September 11, 1975" opens with an environmental recording of crickets at night over which a soulful trumpet solo with gentle conga underscoring is played." [AMG]

Walter Ruttmann (1887-1941) was a german director, screenwriter, cinematographer and editor. As a filmmaker, he created an impressionistic symphony with his experimental portrait of Berlin in 1927 Berlin, die Sinfonie der Großstadt.
His unique musical composition Weekend is a pioneering work from the early days of radio, commissioned in 1928 by Berlin Radio Hour. In a collage of words, music fragments and sounds, Walter Ruttmann presented a radically innovative radio piece (Hörspiel) as an acoustic film of a Berlin weekend urban landscape. (discogs) Disapeared for a long time, a copy was discovered in 1978 and showed how innovative was this piece !

"Peter Rehberg's first ever solo composition, originally released in 1995 as part of "mesmervariations", a (long-deleted) double CD by Ash International presented in an oversized plastic wallet with eight card inserts. That release contained various original compositions influenced by the work of Friedrich Mesmer, and included pieces by Ryoji Ikeda, Gescom, Edvard Graham Lewis, Robert Hampson, Bruce Gilbert, C M von Hausswolff and Drome (Bernd Friedmann). The artists featured on this release were given a copy of the vinyl recording "Mesmer" (Ash 1.8) and asked to compose a piece influenced by the work of Friedrich Mesmer the 19th Century 'animal magnetist and hypnotist'. The brief was - there is no brief; method and style were left entirely to the discretion of the composer. Rehberg's contribution is reproduced in its entirety here, the B-side of the cassette containing a copy of the weathered dubplate of the track he cut in 1996 for personal DJ use."

On the 27th of May 1992 at 12 noon GMT, alongside Carl Michael Von Hausswolff, Leif Elggren proclaimed the Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland, a new country established as a work of art.

"Active since the late 1970s, Leif Elggren has become one of the most constantly surprising conceptual artists to work in the combined worlds of audio and visual. A writer, visual artist, stage performer and composer, he has many albums to his credits, solo and with the Sons of God, on labels such as Ash International, Touch, Radium and his own Firework Edition. His music, often conceived as the soundtrack to a visual installation or experimental stage performance, usually presents carefully selected sound sources over a long stretch of time and can range from mesmerizingly quiet electronics to harsh noise. His wide-ranging and prolific body of art often involves dreams and subtle absurdities, social hierarchies turned upside-down, hidden actions and events taking on the quality of icons." (wikipedia)

Ikuisuus / IKASUS-014 / Finland
Ikuisuus is A Finnish label releasing mostly experimental, psychedelic and ambient music on CD, CDR, CS and LP.
"North Carolina's Tretetam is a quietly abstract affair. Tretetam relies primarily on synth and found sounds, accompanied occasionally by other instruments as he crafts ambient pieces to occupy the space between conscious and subconscious.
Tretetam's self-titled is a sporadic in nature. Never straying from his synth and found sounds, he uses these to paint various fragments of portraits that make up the disconnect between reality and dream." (Foxy digitalis)
"Color Rabbit : Psychedelic jams, synthesizer melodies, varieties of acoustic sounds and intriguing soundscapes not unlike what you'd hear emitting from a space farm of acid-addicted critters. A progressive, fut...uristic conglomeration of instrumentation stuck in the late 60's."-Justing Marc Lloyd (Rainbow Bridge)
Color Rabbit : heavy sounded like psychedelic rock, freak rock, Kraut rock / Tretetam : tastes like industrial music sound collages meet hypnagogic pop.

Burro Ácrata is Olaf Ladousse, member of Los Caballos De Düsseldorf (LCDD) and inventor of Doo-Rags (amazing circuit-bent toys).
This is a tape recorded for afeitealperro.blogspot.com in 100 copies (2 euros)
On the A-side, you can hear seven electronic sweety experimental tracks and on the other side of the tape, the same 7 songs were registred in reverse. So listing with an autoreverse tape-recorder you could generate endless loops.

L'objectif de cette exposition est de démonter la persistance et la vivacité de la pratique de la peinture en France aujourd'hui. La succession des mouvements d'avant-garde, depuis la modernité, avait pu faire croire à la disparition de la peinture au profit d'autres pratiques. Or, la peinture persiste. Les productions de ces peintres attestent qu'ils ont su assimiler les leçons - les plus prégnantes voire les plus radicales- de l'histoire de cet art.
