RAYMOND DIJKSTRA ~ AFFEN-THEATER

LP
Original Artwork by Raymond Dijkstra
Numbered, dated, signed edition of 40 ex.
d’or029
Date of Release: 18 March 2019

Reïssue of Raymond Dijkstra ~ Affen-theater (Le Souffleur, 2005) with original Artwork

Affen-Theater is an early Le Souffleur Period RD Work from 2005, opening a new Artistic Direction in the Œuvre of RD, with a high Focus on an expressionist Style of Playing Harmonium, experimental frotting and scratching of Glass Surfaces with different Materials, sometimes combined with manual Tape Manipulation and rudimentary Delay Effects. The Key Element in these expressionist Works (starting with Affen-Theater and involving 73 published Titles between 2005-2017) is an Approach very close to Surrealist Automatism, giving free Reign to the Unconscious of the Artist.

“My music is made in an abstract process of self-detachment. While detaching myself from myself, I connect with my Self. My expressionistic music should be regarded more as a physical act, more than music. It’s a constant training in opening up my mind, removing obstacles with violence, and seeing a different reality through the debris.” “The final result is a pile of fragments, but I guess something of the initial light still shimmers through.” “The publication is simply a registration of a physical event, and should be left untouched. Any changing of the initial energy is a weakening.” (RD)

Numbered edition of 40 ex.

Date of Release: 8 april 2019

Musicworks by Pierre Bastien

This Album is a Unicum in the Œuvre of Pierre Bastien. Pierre Bastien has always played together with the Meccano Orchestra. In these Pieces however, the Music contains the mechanical Sounds by the Meccano Orchestra only, with the Artist only observing the Orchestra as the sole Spectator in a vast and empty Circus Arena… A wonderful Collection of automated music, pure Poetry of a tiny mechanical Orchestra, fragile and touching in it’s primitive Mechanics… An absolute Highlight in the Œuvre of Bastien.

The Meccano Orchestra is a unique and constantly evolving Orchestra consisting of selfplaying Machines made from Meccano, imagined by Pierre Bastien.

The Group is known for their free Improvisations in an Area bordered by Psychedelic Music, Jazz and Kraut Rock. Instruments were often build by themselves. During 1972 and 1973 they toured extensively through Europe with a Tractor, Mobile Stage and some Sheep, to give unanounced (and unsolicited) Concerts in smaller and bigger Villages, often to the despair of uninformed Villagers… These Tours were recently published in the Documentary “Anima-Sound: Mit 20 km/h durch Europa (1972) & Gruppe Anima in Salzburg (1973)” https://vimeo.com/233453157

Limpe Fuchs is currently still highly active as a Musician, Instrument Builder and Visual Artist. http://www.limpefuchs.de/

WENDINGEN 1918
Bart de Paepe
Raymond Dijkstra
Frédérique Bruyas : Voice

WENDINGEN 1918.

“Little by little, the mass turned like a slimy and forceful nausea, a kind of immense influx of vegetable and thundering blood. And the small fibers trembling at the edge of my mental eye, broke off with a vertiginous speed of the tense mass of the wind. And all the space trembled like a sex organ which the globe of the burning sky was battering.”

Raymond Dijkstra is an autodidact Artist from Indonesian / Dutch / English / Belgian / Portuguese descent. He has developed a highly personal acoustic-experimental and expressionist style, using his body as a tool for ‘automatic writing’. His explorations in this area are carefully documented by his own imprint Le Souffleur, especially in the series “Catalogue du Bruit”. Since about 2009 he also started working on a different, more ‘musical’ type of music, hereby incorporating electronic sources and a more eleborate use of effects. Since 2003 he’s been combining most of his limited publications with original exclusive handmade artworks of himself.

Bart de Paepe is a Belgian Musician and Artist who has worked in many diverse directions, leading to an eclectic array of experimental and underground escavations of his innerworld. His solo music is portrayed by a compact electronic, yet psychedelic style. He’s the Art Direcor for the labels Sloow Tapes and Sloowax and has collaborated with Louise Landes Levi, Timo van Luijk and members of Embryo.

Frédérique Bruyas is a Native French Reciter of (mainly) French Literature. Approaching the texts almost as an actor, she’s showcasing her superb sensitivity for atmosphere and her excellent ability to translate written word in spoken word with great respect to the original texts. The texts used on “Tremblaient à la lisière de mon œil mental” are part of L’Ombilic des Limbes by Antonin Artaud, a text written in 1918 during his stay in a mental asylum and published only a decade later.

Wendingen 1918 is dedicated to the Dutch Architectural Magazine ‘Wendingen’ from 1918 and the Work and Life of Antonin Artaud.
