"you'll have to run thru a intense long brown tunnel before arriving at the best butcher in town! he'll cut your meat down to pure droned filet americain or preparé from the chef! bears and bowie lookalikes are huge fans, as this bird butcher sliced many famous animals since a young age. he grew from playing cards in the bar with the big nuts via pinching fags in the parc to a full blown fine line worker! spin him around and you get a conceptual artpiece, back to the old skool game of throwing cards on a table! poetics re-invented by dolle smurfen repeating the same word over and over again, until you eventually get it and snap, which usually takes a while. a perfect summer bummer for boiling brains and unusual double pleasure! classic tones, properly sliced feathers, and intense poetics."
"This is the first in a series of Edmond De Deyster archival LP's. Edmond left an enormous unreleased pile of beautiful analog synthesizer recordings, all recorded on reel to reel taperecorders. These are the first recordings I found, although I'm not sure if they are really the first recordings he ever made. A bunch of tapes I got access to didn't mention any date or other specification, wich rather sums yp the whole style of his archive: no titles, no info, no nothing. Nevertheless, some of the tapes do mention a brief date, this first selection compiles two reel tapes labeled "1975". Most people that knew him describe him as extremely shy and non-communicative, his family didn't even know he was making music until late 80's.
I would like to thank Edmond's family for their kindness and for granting me access to his archive. It's very unfortunate that his music has never been released during his lifetime.
"This is a tape recording done on September 24, 1998 on the day of the exhibition "privacy" at Fundacao de Serralves in Porto, by Belgiums biggest contemporary painter Luc Tuymans and Polands giant brutal sculpturist Miroslav Balka. This recording took place in the building and garden of Fundacao de Serralves and Porto Palacio Hotel. The basic idea was to record the sound of running horses for a collaborative public sound sculpture by both artists, however during the process other sounds (such as drunk Venezualan singing, "vacuumcleaning", rambling, and discussions about Maurizio Catalan and the snake of jungle book who by the way "has a very stupid expression on his face") landed on the tape which changed the running horses into crazy horses. This record is released for the "involved" exhibtion in Shanghai, curated by Phillippe Pirotte. "
