PITA - MESMER (2010)

Cassette only - limited edition of 250 copies
Track listing:
A: Mesmer - 21m05s
B: Mesmer - 19m17s
Written by Peter Rehberg. Recorded summer 1995 Mego Studio, Vienna.

"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.
