    Kouhei Matsunaga – Drawings

    , , ,
    Hardbound, cloth bound book with 7" vinyl. Stunning! Kouhei Matsunaga's 'Drawings' is a book and a 7" vinyl record. The book is the first ever major showcase of his drawing skills. Here, smiling horses meet floating people in a strictly minimalist, slightly psychedelic black and white ink world. The hardcover book is cloth bound, 88 pages, 40 drawings, a few words and lots of space. The four track 7" vinyl single accompanying the book, credited to his alias Koyxen Mattsunagnen, takes Matsunaga's music a step further towards a more dance oriented approach, as with his minimal techno project NHK and the recent NHK'Koyxen material released by the PAN label, whilst still clearly and firmly rooted in contemporary, experimental music.

    Katrien De Blauwer – Stills

    Includes digital download code for the complete music release by Danny Clay. Limited edition to 500 copies. Book: hardcover book (30cm x 22 cm), 112 pages, 75 photos, printed on Munken print white paper 150g/m2, logo, slot and brown circle embossed. Katrien De Blauwer calls herself a "photographer without a camera.” The Belgian artist collects and recycles pictures and photos from old magazines and newspapers to create stunning collages of distant mood and place. These fragmentary images evoke faded memories that are quickly brought to the fore. In turn, the viewer becomes a character in De Blauwer’s stories. De Blauwer shows extensively throughout Europe. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and appears often in the New York Times.

    Daniel. T Freeman – The Infinite / Unknowable

    , ,
    A 12-track, 68-minute CD of instrumental music with a 48-page, softcover, 210 x 148mm book of 12 poems and 25 black and white photographs printed on 130gsm coated silk-finish paper with a 350gsm cover... Gong choirs, ragged system violins, rusted electronics, liquid heave resonances, apocalyptic poetry, high-contrast photography: ‘The Infinite And The Unknowable’ is a visceral attempt to explore the fathomless mysteries of the divine. Using a mythical Ballardian sea voyage at its core, it evokes such diverse sources as Andrei Tarkovsky, Arvo Pärt, Tim Hecker, ‘A Book of Silence’, John Luther Adams, Terrence Malick, ‘Under the Skin’, Jon Hassell, ‘Selected Ambient Works, Vol. II’, Laurie Spiegel, Ansel Adams, Richard Skelton, the books of Revelation, Job and Daniel, Swans, John Sheppard and Hieronymus Bosch. TIATU was painstakingly constructed over a six year period from hundreds of layers of played and heavily processed electric violin, percussion and electronics and it includes the final re-worked version of the title track originally used in the devastating closing scenes of the Film 4 / BFI / Studio Canal feature film ‘Catch Me Daddy’. The voice of this instrumental music has been extended by the accompanying debut collection of poetry and photography.

    James Vella – Devourings

    ,
    Devourings collects a variety of stories – each its own piece but bound to the next by a broader, unifying theme: being enveloped, devoured, by a moment, an encounter, a political situation, an emotion – which connect with absolute potency. Be they over a handful of paragraphs or a spread of pages, these short – and shorter – stories linger with a palpable resonance. Devourings travels to many destinations, encompassing several scenarios and introducing myriad protagonists – and, frequently, antagonists. ‘Esthers’ follows a snaking murder plot set in 1940s Argentina; the malevolent machinations of ‘USS Passumpsic’ play out on a late-1950s Pacific. ‘The Lamb Opened The Fox’s Throat’ takes place in a fantastical ancient Arabia, a place of magic and little mercy. Geographically and chronologically divergent dramas are connected by a consistent, compelling tone.

    Atay Ilgun – Enuma Elis

    ,
    Also spelled as ‘Enuma Elish’, Enûma Eliš is the Babylonian creation mythos named after its opening words (incipit) which means ‘when on high’. It’s about thousand lines recorded in Old Babylonian on seven clay tablets. Here on this chapbook, the term ‘when on high’ is re-worked as poems about life, creation, death and eternity. Following a vague sequence, it starts covering meditations on flowers, stars, life and the idea of most absolute beginning and ending, but till the end poem itself finds remedies in the everlasting harmony of incarnation and fragments which has no beginning or ending.

    Aidan Baker – Passing Through

    ,
    It all starts from a famous maxim of uncertain authorship – Writing about music is like dancing about architecture – and from a trope that is also a neurological phenomenon – synesthesia, the description or perception of one kind of sensation in terms of another. Smelling words, seeing sounds, hearing colours. Aidan Baker deliberately and skillfully plays with such figures, applying them not only to sensations but also to artistic techniques. The poems in this collection are about artworks that use other media than words – paintings, films and songs by a selection of such artists as Man Ray, Wim Wenders, John Coltrane, and Francisco Goya, among others. Each poem is at once a personal response and a dialogue with the artist, with Baker acting as author, spectator, and mediator. In this sense, besides playing with different senses and media, the collection entwines several literary genres and techniques: fiction and critical essay, poetry and prose, description and narration.

    Atom Eye – The Otolith Sessions

    , , ,
    CD release with a limited edition, 50 page book complete with beautiful images and texts eluding to the recording materials, machinery, processes and personnel. The book also encompasses an audio cookbook with recipes for you to create your own experimental audio loops and soups. The culmination of a year’s worth of sound experiments with machines of a bygone era, The Otolith Sessions sees Elsie Martins ‘Atom Eye’ project realise it’s most ambitious and complete work to date. A meticulously programmed full length as opposed to a collection of tracks the album develops and unfolds with a palpable sense of purpose and adventure over the albums six storied compositions. The visceral nature of the beautiful but abstruse music is no fluke but a deliberate result of the unhurried nature of the albums writing and production process. The Otolith Sessions was mixed & co-produced by James Aparicio (Liars, Spiritualized) and features guest appearances from regular collaborators; award-winning percussionist Pete Lockett (Björk, David Holmes, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Lee Scratch Perry, Primal Scream) and Mute Artist, Composer and Producer Simon Fisher Turner (whose work includes soundtracks for Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio, The Last of England, The Garden and David Lynch-produced Nadja).

    Hara / Umezawa – Jigokuhen

    , ,
    Wistbook 009 / Edition series. 100 / Format. 3″cd and novella… A murder mystery by one of today’s finest crime writers, “Jigokuhen” takes place in a declining coastal city whose once thriving harbours and shipyards now house a shadowy criminal underworld. Drawn into this world when the son of the city’s mayor is killed, a jaded middle-aged detective finds himself distracted by a beautiful unemployed dockworker who spends each day walking aimlessly along the shore, and whose mysterious past may just hold the key to solving the crime. Throughout the novella, these two characters act as allegories of the dingy concrete metropolis and the wild untamed sea that borders it, City and Nature constantly approaching and withdrawing. The plot reaches a climax with a shootout in a warehouse, but the action plays second fiddle to the relationship between the detective and the dockworker, which remains ambivalent and by the end of the novel remains unresolved. Quiet, yet intensely evocative, “Jigokuhen” is a literary tour de force.

    David Newlyn – Canon Alberic’s Scrapbook

    , ,
    Wistbook 008 / Edition series. 100 / Format. 3″cd and novella… This botano-philosophical treatise is a classic of Renaissance scientific literature. Delicate, minutely detailed sketches of flora and fauna litter the pages, attesting in their exquisiteness to the wonder and beauty of a world viewed under the microscope for the first time. Accompanying the drawings are Alberic’s handwritten notes on taxonomies and classifications, designations of anatomical parts, therapeutic and practical uses, and allegorical meanings. A sober yet reverential tone is retained throughout, and the book ends with a sublime canticle praising the Divine Creator “who deigned in His Infinite Wisdom to bestow such Marvealous Complexity on even the Smallest of parts”. To read this book is to feel the lost intellectual and religious fervour of a prior age.

    Blow – Issue Three

    ,
    A little over a year ago, blow magazine was no more than a loose idea waiting to take shape. Over the past twelve months we have cultivated a visual collection to honour the printed image, to celebrate known photographers and to shed a light on fresh talent. So it is with celebration in mind that we present to you our third issue: The Body Issue. One of the most photographed of subjects, the human body is infinite in its ability to communicate visually. Regularly a study of shape and form, sometimes a tool for social commentary and often a subject of controversy, the body acts as a human landscape with endless possibilities for expression and interpretation.

    VNA – Issue 16

    ,
    Issue 16 features Parisian legend Invader as the cover artist. Our exclusive interview with the Rubik’s cube enthusiast provides a rare insight into this secretive street artist’s work. We talk about people stealing his work, airlines classifying his tiles as ‘weapons’ and invader-shaped waffles. We also chat about his ‘cousin’ Mr Brainwash and how he narrowly avoiding arrest in LA during the Art in the Streets show. Issue 16 also includes Ron English’s protege, the Australian wunderkind Kid Zoom, old-school mad scientist CHU, commercial assassins TrustoCorp, and weird and wonderful pictorial pirates The Dead Sea Mob. But that’s not all, folks. We also talk to Cath Love and Will Barras, and include a photo feature on Obsession Of Colour. Of course no issue of VNA would be complete without documenting actual work on city walls and it seemed appropriate that this issue should celebrate the streets of Paris, alongside those of London and Melbourne.
