More Info

Very interesting work inspired by the poetry of the famous Swiss schizophrenic patient ADOLF WLFFI, with printings of his art in the inlay!

In 1986, SPK's Graeme Revell released an album entitled "Necropolis, Amphibians and Reptiles". The recordings were based on the work of Swiss art brut artist and mental patient Adolf Wlfli. Some 15 years later, Austrian composer Bernhard Gal used Wfli's poems as the basis for a sound installation at modern art museum Essl near Vienna. Now, in 2004, Klanggalerie are proud to present you a CD version of this outstanding composition. There are male and female voices bordering between meaning and non-meaning, footsteps and field recordings. Headphone listening highly recommended! If you need comparison think Robert Ashley, Paul De Marinis or Trevor Wishart. [press release]
