Your faces will be landscapes. Their lines, curves, surfaces and volumes will be hills, rivers and valleys. They will welcome rainbows, pyramids, hearts, foots and fruits...

All pictures taken from the book Coiffes qui décoiffent by Marie-Pierre Rinck, Editions Fleurus, Paris, 1993. 



Hello. May we recommend this tape to you? Bafoulabé was recorded and mixed by Gerard Herman from FM Radio recordings made in Senegal and Mali during the Winter of 2013. It's just been released by Social Harmony in an edition of 50 copies (and in an unlimited digital edition)... So I guess you'd better act fast if you need the physical thing (which looks great, by the way). There's a 3'34'' fragment on their website - that I can't embed here for some reason that remains a mystery to me. All info here: http://socialharmony.bandcamp.com/album/bafoulab

June 6, 2015: Above The High Rays

If you happen to be in Brussels, Belgium this Saturday June 6, 2015, this is not to be missed...

Saturday 06.06.2015 | 8PM 
BOZAR | Ravensteinstraat 23 | 1000 Brussels 

In the fantastic and poetic gem PARIS QUI DORT, a few people wander through a deserted city, put to sleep by a mysterious ray. This film by René Clair from 1923 will be accompanied by live music from Miaux, the electronic and melancholic project of Antwerp based musician Mia Prce. The screening will be preceded by three rare and precious works: ACCENT GRAVE ON ANANAS, a colourful film poem by Tamara Henderson, featuring an enigmatic and funny object & fruit choreography; KRIK, shot by Ivko Šešić among the lions of the Belgrade Zoo, built in a medieval fortress; and TWIST TWIST, where the shimmering light on the surface of the sea is rocked hard by Ante Verzotti.

On the occasion of this evening, the Antwerp label Ultra Eczema publishes a tape with the music composed by Miaux for PARIS QUI DORT: ABOVE THE HIGH RAYS.

ACCENT GRAVE ON ANANAS - Tamara Henderson (US/CA, 2013, 16mm, loop, 3’, sound: Dan Riley).
KRIK - Ivko Šešić (YU, 1978, 16mm, 9’, music: S. Habić).
TWIST TWIST - Ante Verzotti (YU, 1962, 16mm, 3')
PARIS QUI DORT - René Clair (FR, 1923, 16mm, 34’, silent film) & Live Soundtrack: Miaux.


Salto Mortale: "Eabuaba" tape finally available

Mixtape / C48 / 5 €   sold out

"I first heard Francesco Cavaliere under his Salto Mortale sobriquet on a Summer night of 2011 at the O-tannenbaum club in Berlin. Although he only played about three tracks on that night totting up to around 12 minutes, these were more than enough to make it one of the most exciting sets I ever witnessed  and you can mark my words here. Salto Mortale plays arab music on tapes  un mix di cose trovate nei negozzi e kebab places libanesi, ci sono cose fine anni 60, anni 80, cose from Iraq, Lebanon, Egitto, due cose turche e un o due pezzi di Meixana (battle di stornelli dal' Azerbaijan, spesso cose che fanno per i matrimoni) – but his unique signature relies on the special setup and personal techniques he has developed in relation to the music and the medium. No tape gimmick or cassette fetishism here. Salto Mortale shapes his sound by swiftly shaking the cassette players, speeding up or slowing down the pace, casting spells, proclaiming names and telling stories in between tracks. This tape might be the most exciting Music City release to date". (DJ Bongo Man)
