Can't recall the name, but there was also an avant noise band who packaged one of their limited edition CDs with a portion of each member's freeze-dried poop.

POOP.

Obviously artists and connoisseurs of Manzoni's work.


Artist's Shit   1961
(Merda d'artista)
In May 1961, while he was living in Milan, Piero Manzoni produced ninety cans of Artist's Shit. Each was numbered on the lid 001 to 090. Tate's work is number 004. A label on each can, printed in Italian, English, French and German, identified the contents as '"Artist's Shit", contents 30gr net freshly preserved, produced and tinned in May 1961.' In December 1961 Manzoni wrote in a letter to the artist Ben Vautier: 'I should like all artists to sell their fingerprints, or else stage competitions to see who can draw the longest line or sell their shit in tins. The fingerprint is the only sign of the personality that can be accepted: if collectors want something intimate, really personal to the artist, there's the artist's own shit, that is really his.' (Letter reprinted in Battino and Palazzoli p.144.)

It is not known exactly how many cans of Artist's Shit were sold within Manzoni's lifetime, but a receipt dated 23 August 1962 certifies that Manzoni sold one to Alberto L¨cia for 30 grams of 18-carat gold (reproduced in Battino and Palazzoli p.154). Manzoni's decision to value his excrement on a par with the price of gold made clear reference to the tradition of the artist as alchemist already forged by Marcel Duchamp and Yves Klein among others. As the artist and critic Jon Thompson has written:

Manzoni's critical and metaphorical reification of the artist's body, its processes and products, pointed the way towards an understanding of the persona of the artist and the product of the artist's body as a consumable object. The Merda d'artista, the artist's shit, dried naturally and canned 'with no added preservatives', was the perfect metaphor for the bodied and disembodied nature of artistic labour: the work of art as fully incorporated raw material, and its violent expulsion as commodity. Manzoni understood the creative act as part of the cycle of consumption: as a constant reprocessing, packaging, marketing, consuming, reprocessing, packaging, ad infinitum. (Piero Manzoni, 1998, p.45)"

Dreams of Dying Stars - Buried in the Void - one hour of ambient/space music, peaceful (IMHO) and mellow. Very good!

This morning:

Gianluca Becuzzi/Fabio Orsi- The Stones Know Everything; I guess I'm the last to jump on the Fabio Orsi bandwagon. I love the sandpapery, hollow sound of this disc, and the sense of improvisation.

Description Without Place- Filaments; this is fantastic! Serene and yet a bit unsettling, like descending into some strange and primordial world.

Oval- Dok; always a nice listen.

Dean De Benedictis A Cambient Variations

An experimental all-sounds-created-by-single-voice release picked up at last night's Gatherings Concert Series performance with Dean and Vic Hennegan.  It works quite well first thing on a Sunday morning -- somewhat hushed, some subtle rhythms, polished, and often lovely.

Kate Bush Aerial

A favorite that never seems to leave my personal playlist.

now by hemisphere, aka the late ralf knappe heinbockel. some of you might shy away from this artist because he is on the groove label. they are better known for their heavy berlin school and sequencer style electronica but this is an excellent ambient cd, as are all of hemisphere's releases. he sets it off with some rock'n'roll riffs here and there and, yes, there is some sequencing. all in all this is a great cd and comes with a very high recommendation. i'd suggest that you visit groove at www.groove.nl and check some samples of ralf's music. i think you'll be glad.
all the best and God bless

if you want to get to the top of the ambient guitar drone league, you gotta face

"Waist Deep Seas of Milk"

Klaus Schulze - Mirage

There truly is such a thing as the greatest electronic album of all time. This is the one and there is no doubt in my mind.
(stay away from the 2005 'deluxe' edition, with bad remastering and a different, weaker version of track 1)

Just saw a new CD with Klaus and Lisa Gerrard. Can't imagine how awful that's likely to be!  ;)

It is awful!  Sounds like a cheesy sci-fi soundtrack.  Didn't like it at all.

Fabio Orsi ~ Audio for lovers [Last Visible Dog, 2cd] - definitely his most complete release so far; Orsi is the best of the new ambient practitioners drawing together the strands of drone, ambient, psych-folk (not much thankfully), and electro-acoustic into a satisfying whole. Some forumites have correctly observed that 3 tracks out of the 4 on cd2 have been previously released as individual 3"s, but there's more than enough new material (all cd1 + closing 12min track, cd2) to keep the most exacting of Orsithologists happy. His most ambient release too, and one that should appeal to the frequenters of this forum - nothing scary or unkempt here; just beautifully put together tone poems and sonic dream devices.
