Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $30.00
Edition of 200 copies. Another volume of scarce sound poetry material originally issued on the British Balsam Flex label (1977-80). "...The energy which can be created and released by two or three poets working on common ground rather than with their personal material can be as great a force as that often experienced through jazz improvisation... We feel that it is not only we who will benefit for whilst this is an important experiment, it is not one for its own sake having the immediate appeal, energy and potency of street theatre, rock bands, jazz buzz, ritual chants. Urgent perhaps.. Each performance develops from and heads towards the next." - artists liner notes, London 1976.

Title: OH Audiopoems
Format: Double LP
Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $45.00
250 pressed but only 150 available for sale (the other 100 going to the estate, collaborators, Chopin archive, etc..). Originally issued in 1978 on cassette by Balsam Flex. "Balsam Flex was a cassette label run by the artist Erik Vonna-Michell in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and evidence of a relatively overlooked moment when a number of London-based British poets were producing work that was influenced by performance art, conceptual art, sound art, text-sound composition, Fluxus, and situationism. One of their most impressive release is Oh: Audiopoems, by the legendary Henri Chopin, a collection of his work from 1958 to 1979. Henri Chopin was a key figure of the French avant-garde during the second half of the 20th century. Towards the end of the second world war, Henri Chopin, who has died aged 85, escaped from a forced labour camp in Olomouc, in what is now the Czech Republic, after it had been bombed. He then spent time with the advancing Red Army, until, recaptured by the Germans, he and inmates of concentration and extermination camps were sent west on a Nazi "death march".

In the 1950s Henri created sound poetry, capturing breaths and cries made by his voice and body. He was, said his friend William Burroughs, an "inner space explorer", but the Frenchman remained a solitary figure, outside any artistic grouping, almost the only exponent of his art, and almost certainly the only poet to record sounds and movements by swallowing a microphone.

Known primarily as a concrète and sound poet, he created a large body of pioneering recordings using early tape recorders, studio technologies and the sounds of the manipulated human voice. His emphasis on sound is a reminder that language stems as much from oral traditions as from classic literature, of the relationship of balance between order and chaos.

Title: Symphony Natura
Format: LP
Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $54.00
“Reissue on black vinyl, strictly limited to 90 copies, hand numbered, contains the original cover from the first edition plus the score, also numbered. Limited quantities available! "Symphony Natura op.170" (1985) is a long collage of electronic drones and animal sounds, recorded at the Zoo in Rome in 1985.” - Slowscan.

"First of all, I think of Bruckners great symphonies modelled after nature, from the days of flourishing orchestral culture, great feelings and gazing into the soundscape. Which was always the landscape of a concert hall and musicians dressed up as penguins, many violins. Originally most ideals of instrumental sounds were derived from animal voices or other sounds of natural phenomena. The violins, for instance: someone found out that stretched out, dried bowels could produce sounds, there is a funny saying: "My bowels are crying." This has been civilized, "refined", and much has been achieved for the human mind (Save the Nature, use it). The strings have played spirituality to the human being. Today, however, I have the opportunity to treat the voices of sheep electrically so that they can be used as instruments for our acoustic expression and also to set us thinking about our present-day relation to nature - also to our own nature as human beings. I have worked with animal voices before, in the ROMA ZOO, e. g., I made a suite of animal voices which I called SYMPHONY NATURA, I have also worked with the howling of wolves and with canaries (The Green Birdchoirpiano - Museum of Art, Northern Jutland) ("Freedom Is Around the Corner" - Yellow Music in Berlin) and also monkey singing, all of it nature variations on tape. What is important to me now is where and in which context such works are being performed. I have been in concert halls, in theaters, but I am not really harpy with these environments for my animal music. I have to construct new "concert halls" for such works and therefore I really like this relatively large "Concert castle" on the meadow at the Danube in front of the famous Brucknerhaus, it is ideal for me and I am writing a new slogan: "Sheep instead of Violins." The meadow belongs to the sheep, it is their territory, thats where they belong and people come to visit them.” - Henning Christiansen.

Price: $34.00
Reissue of a 1972 cassette originally released on ALBRECHT Ds Reflection Press. Features ALBRECHT, ALLAN KAPROW, NAM JUNE PAIK, WOLF VOSTELL, GUNTER SAREE, JEAN TOCHE and JON HENDRIKS. ("Apart from artist names, title, label and catalog number there are no further credits or recording details stated on the release."). Edition of 200 copies.

“the german word abartig refers to entartet and to art of course refering to entartete kunst refering to auschwitz. the stuttgart post-fluxus artist albrecht/d. cited a quote hans neuendorf used in an article about german avantgarde art and especially about wolf vostell and turned it into art.  hans neuendorf was a german (probadly hamburg) art dealer who in 1973 said some bizarre things about art and german artists. one of his sentences was read, recited or performed by kaprow, paik, vostell, hendricks, toche, sarée and albrecht/d. - the very raw reworkings were released on the tape/cassette "die abartigen" as reflection press # 25. and this is what herr neuendorf said:   "zu diesem zweck hat sich eine abart von künstlern herausgebildet, die nur noch den medien dient. zum beispiel vostell. er gibt ständig pressekonferenzen, oder er gibt “erklärungen” ab, aber eine künstlerische leistung liegt nicht vor." - "for this purpose (something like art as spectaculum and sensation... rvd) a de-generation of artists has formed itself to only serve the media. vostell as an example. he is always found in press-conferences or he is providing some declaration: but no artistic work is done (no artistic achievement is on hand)."

Artist: FILLIOU, ROBERT
Title: Whispered History of Art
Format: LP
Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $32.00
Edition of 186. Slowscan volume 30. Filliou was a Fluxus artist also associated with the Nouveau Réalisme group (along with Yves Klein, Jean Tinguely, François Dufrêne, and Daniel Spoerri, among others).
Side B is a performance of Fillious "Whispered History of Art" (1963) recorded at New Wilderness Studio, New York, in 1977. Side A is an introduction by Dick Higgins. Cover art by George Maciunas.

"In 1943, Robert Filliou joined the Resistance movement organized by the communists and became a member of the French Communist Party during the war (he would later leave it after Titos exclusion for the Communist International).... After working as a labourer for Coca Cola in Los Angeles, he began to study (while continuing to do "odd jobs" to earn his living) and achieved a masters in economics.
In 1951, he took dual French-American nationality. As a United Nations advisor, he was sent to Korea for three years to help write the Constitution and take part in the programmes for economic reconstruction of the country. From there, he travelled in the Far East. From 1954 to 1959, he lived in Egypt, Spain and Denmark, where he met Marianne Staffels, the woman with whom he would share his life and his artistic activity. In 1959, he returned to France (he visited regularly after that). However, he was not attached to any country (as he himself said: "nationality = poet, profession = French"). In Paris, in the Contrescarpe area, Daniel Spoerri introduced him to the world of the plastic artists. This was in the middle of the boom of the 1960s, with the return in strength of Duchamps ideas, the appearance of Fluxus and the effervescent avant-garde of the Nouveaux Réalistes.
With his training in economics and Buddhist thought, he was not attached to any country in particular: "I am not just interested in art, but in society of which art is one aspect. I am interested in the world as a whole, a whole of which society is one part. I am interested in the universe, of which the world is only one fragment. I am interested primarily in the Constant Creation of which the universe is only one product." For him, the work of art was a means of direct action on the world. Like the Brahmin who tries to integrate all the acts in life with the religious rites and duties, Filliou attempted to integrate them with artistic duty, "without worrying about whether the works are distributed or not": "When you make , it is art, when you finish, it is non-art, when you exhibit, it is anti-art." - New Media Encyclopedia.

Artist: JONES, JOE
Title: Meditations 18.2
Format: LP
Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $45.00
"The New York artist Joe Jones first studied composition at the Hartnett Music School and started his career as a jazz drummer. Due to his white skin, however, there were few jobs for him in this field in the early sixties, since New York only had two active jazz clubs at that time. Because of this Jones began to study experimental composition under John Cage and Earle Brown in 1960. Through his teachers he got acquainted with Dick Higgins and Alison Knowles. When Higgins and Knowles travelled to Europe in 1962 to participate in several Fluxus Festivals, Jones rent their studios. Here he developed his first music machines, with which he was very successful from the beginning. Since 1963 Jones participated in the Fluxus-movement and took part in a number of performances with his music machines. In 1963 he performed at the Yam festival in New Brunswick for the first time, a year later he performed at the Avantgarde music festival in New York. Many exhibitions and actions in New York and Nice followed until Jones opened his own Music-Store in New York in 1969. In 1972 he produced the album Fly together with John Lennon and Yoko Ono and founded the Fluxus-Airline with George Macunias. At that time he settled down in Europe; he lived in Amsterdam, Asolo (Italy), Berlin and Wiesbaden and exhibited worldwide in galleries and museums. In 1980 Jones was a guest of the DAADs Berlin artist program, before he took up residence in Düsseldorf and Wiesbaden. Since the mid-eighties Jones produced short films with his computer, the so-called Fluxus-Home-Movies, and he also devised larger orchestra-like installations with his music machines. His busy exhibition schedule remained unchanged: In 1988 his works could be seen at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, in 1992/93 there was a big touring exhibition with stops in Helsinki, Nuremberg, Rotterdam and Wuppertal. In addition to that his music machines have been represented in the worldwide exhibition Fluxus in Deutschland since 1995, which could be seen in Gera, Budapest, Istanbul, Brünn, Copenhagen, Athens, Tel Aviv and Warsaw so far; further stops are planned for Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Africa until 2002." - Ketterkunst.

Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $24.00
Very small stash of original printed boxes from the long out of print 1986 release found by Jan Slowscan in storage so he put together a few more of these w newly dubbed cassettes. "Blurred Genres is a cycle of pieces composed for the dance by Susan Foster. The pieces are all concerned with either just tuning systems or polyphony with complex (often times unpitched) timbres. Stylistically the first, third and fifth pieces are devoted to the sustained, unfolding sonorities only possible with electronic sound, while the others subject various musical conventions to stylistic abuse" - Ron Kuivila.

"Ron Kuivila is a sound artist and composer. He creates instruments of his own design for performances as well as installations. Kuivilas work challenges what one can hear simultaneously. He samples sounds from many different situations, and he is influenced by nature as well as artifice. Prior to receiving his 2008 Grants to Artists award, Kuivila had shown his sound installation work at MASS MoCA (1999-2007); V2 Organization, Holland (2000); and Donaueschinger Musiktage, Germany (2000); WDR Spring Festival, Germany (2002); DeCordova Museum, Massachusetts (2003-2004); and the Moyland Museum, Germany (2007); among others. He had also performed at BYOL Festival, Italy (2003); Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College (2004); Diapason Gallery, New York (2006); and the HFG Karlsruhe, Germany (2006)."

Artist: MAXFIELD, RICHARD
Title: s/t (Slowscan vol. 23)
Format: Double LP
Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $37.00
2014 release, edition of 200 copies. Recordings courtesy Dick Higgins (of Something Else Press, etc).

Includes an interview with Maxfield on Radio KQED, California, from November 11, 1960; "Fermentation (1960)"; "Cough Music (1959)"; "Perspectives II For La Monte Young (1961) "; "Piano Sonata No. 2 (1948/49)"; "Structures (1951)"; and "For Sonny Wilson (Ca. 1966)."

“Writing in his book Ocean of Sound some years ago, David Toop observed: "If Richard Maxfield had not committed suicide in 1969, and if his electronic music pieces were not so difficult to find or to hear, then our idea of how music has changed and opened out during the past thirty-five years might be very different." Toop penned those remarks back in 1994; and, even at this much later date, the thought still holds true. Before jumping to his death from a hotel window ledge in Los Angeles at the age of 42, Maxfield could be considered one the chief pioneers of electronic music on American shores.

Despite the archival cornucopia that it offers, Reissue Culture has had its share of oversights, and Maxfield has been one of them. Only a few of his compositions have seen digital reissue over the years, with works like the three-minute "Amazing Grace" or 1963s "Pastoral Symphony" turning up on a few scattered compilations. Depending on which account you go with, when he left New York for the West Coast, Maxfield entrusted his tapes to artists Walter De Maria; who passed them along to La Monte Young, who in turn reputedly entrusted them to the Dia Arts Foundation.

Terry Riley, being interviewed in the course of a game of "Invisible Jukebox" in The Wire back in 1999 shed some light on Maxfields neglected legacy. Maxfield, he asserted, was one of the most brilliant yechnicians in American electronic music. Aside from reputedly having built much of his own equipment, Maxfield was also reputedly something of a wizard at tape-splicing -- stoically patient, exacting and precise when it came to the task of taking things apart and putting them together viz the yarns and reels of magnetic tape. La Monte Young similarly testified to the artists skills:

"He was an incredible electronic music teacher and master engineer. I used to go up to his mixing studio when he worked at Westminster Records in 1960-61 and observe him editing those old reel-to-reel tapes. He was the most amazingly adept tape handler I have ever seen. He worked so fast his hands and the tape were a constant blur... He really understood electronics; he was very creative and experimental. He taught electronics and composition at the highest level." - Slowscan.

Artist: MAXFIELD, RICHARD
Title: s/t (Slowscan Vol. 28)
Format: Double LP
Label: Slowscan
Country: Netherlands
Price: $42.00
2015 release, not to be confused with the 2014 release of the same name. Edition of 250 copies (80 of which were reportedly "lost in transit"..).

“This double LP introduces an invaluable selection of early electronic Richard Maxfield pieces featuring four distinct works composed between 1959-1964 and previously unpublished (Dromenom, Electronic Symphony, Suite from Peripateia, and Wind). While Maxfield did not exclusively compose electronic music, winning the Gershwin Prize in 1959 for his orchestral work Five Movements, it was within the genre of electroacoustic composition that Maxfields contribution had the most influence. He was one of the first American composers to create works for acoustic instruments with tape accompaniment, and his technique of creating works containing frequencies outside of the range of normal human hearing (below 20Hz or above 20000Hz) that are modulated to produce sounds has since become a notable characteristic of electroacoustic composition.

The LP is printed in a edition of 250 copies, includes Electronic Symphony (for tape, 1964), Dromenon (Ballet for tape and live instruments, as performed at Judson Memorial Church, Washington Square, New York City. Opening Night, 1964), Suite from Peripateia (for a dance piece by James Waring for the Judson Dance Company, 1950-1961), and Wind (for saxophone & tape, 1961). Recordings courtesy of Dick Higgins.” - Slowscan.

“[La Monte] Young was Maxfields teaching assistant [at Berkeley] and became one of the principal performers of Maxfields work. Through working closely with Maxfield in 1960 and 61, Young has observed that, "much of Maxfields tape music was created through a technique which included pre-recording and electronically manipulating sound sources of various duration, then cutting lengths of tape containing these sounds and putting them in large glass mixing bowls. He would randomly draw pieces of tape from the bowls and splice them together placing blank tape of various durations between each of the pre-recorded sounds. What was interesting was that although this was theoretically a Cageian aleatorical approach, Maxfield reserved the right to put back any sounds he did not like and continue to draw new sounds until he found the piece sounding in a way that inspired him. Sometimes several of these reels of spliced together sounds and silences, called inter-masters, were played simultaneously on separate tape decks in concert or mixed together to form a new stereo or mono original master. His compositions were extremely well-crafted, using a sparse, static form and exhibiting a wry humor and unusual sophistication." Young points out that Maxfield was the first American composer to build his own equipment for the purpose of generating electronic tape music and was possibly the first American to compose purely electronic music as distinct from "musique concrete" composed of non-electronic pre-recorded sounds. 

The tape elements of Maxfields compositions, which included both concrete and electronically generated materials, were all produced in his own studio in New York. His equipment was rudimentary: several kit-built, sine-square wave generators, two tape recorders, a homemade mixer and a homemade turntable, microphones, a "Dynamic Spacexpander" (a kind of reverberation device), possibly some filters, and inexpensive switches, amplifiers and speakers. In 1962 Maxfield said about his work, speaking of himself in the third person, "Much of his music has as its source material recorded sounds of the instrumentalists who in performance improvise with electronic tape (which is playing their earlier recorded sounds, now distorted by electronic manipulation).... He is generally quite selective about his raw material and its alteration, but quite free with regard to placement (organization) of the finished product and the improvisation going on simultaneously." 

Maxfield performed his works in New York in the late 50s and early 60s at both uptown halls and downtown lofts and performance spaces. In what was historically New Yorks first loft concert series, directed by La Monte Young at Yoko Onos studio in 1960-61, Young presented two evenings of the work of Maxfield as well as concerts of the work of Jennings and other artists who were creating new and radical work at that time. David Tudor, Terry Riley, Terry Jennings, Dick Higgins and George Maciunas were some of the other artists with whom Maxfield worked. He was Musical Director of the James Waring Dance Company and his work was performed regularly in major concert series, at the Living Theatre, and for dances by Aileen Passloff and Paul Taylor. 

In 1967 Maxfield left his tape music, scores and equipment in the care of Walter De Maria. He moved to San Francisco, where he taught at San Francisco State College in 1966 and 67. He moved to Los Angeles in 1968. In 1969 Richard took his own life.” - William Dawes.
