In March 2012, we had a tour of the Netherlands and Belgium together with Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra. Seven gigs in total, which were all improvised. It was the first time we played together, and we didn’t rehearse. It might not have been brilliant all the time, but there was definitely some kind of magic going on sometimes. Not knowing what the other would do, these concerts were as exciting for us as (hopefully) for the audience. Trying to do something different each time, things got weirder and weirder with each performance, up to a point where it became really hard to keep a straight face while performing. It was simply a whole lot of fun, and an experience that seems worth sharing. It made the most sense to share it in the purest way, with all concerts in unedited form, from the first one to the last.
Private is an international review of photography and writing. This itinerant review has been offering its poetic and photographic journey since 1992. Private’s purpose is to offer a space for photographic creation and poetic or narrative writing. Each issue is themed.
As unique and special the scenes are that the photographers for this issue have chosen to focus on, the similarities (what we have in common, what we share) that can be found around the globe are striking.
Each issue has around 168 pages and includes high-quality colour reproductions of the artists’ work.
Issue 26 looks at questions of pedagogy, such as gallery education, Godard’s didacticism, Lina Bo Bardi’s exhibition displays, and through the artists Catherine Sullivan, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina and Group Material. Accompanying texts look at Hans Eijkelboom, theorisations of the event and the current Moscow art scene.
Darren Ho’s latest trip down the rabbit hole is a baroque maze lit with neon lights. Machine music for The Blue Danube. Piano, harpsichord and synthesis all set adrift, levitating into minimal jewels of sound.
Mind Over Mirrors might not be a household name, but the brain behind the project, Jaime Fennelly, has been involved in numerous acclaimed and respected projects over the last few years. Primarily known for his work as an integral member of Peeesseye, he’s also involved with Acid Birds, Manpack Variant and Phantom Limb & Bison.
‘The Voice Rolling’ is his first solo record in five years and the first under this new moniker. First and foremost, this is a harmonium record and that’s important to remember because it doesn’t sound like any other harmonium record you’ve likely heard. Nearly all of the sounds created were made using a medium-sized Indian harmonium and then processed electronically via tape echo, harmonizer and other guitar pedals. Add in the fact that it was recorded to tape and you get a dense, warm record full of grit and emotion.
