Hanne Lippard - Work
Hanne Lippard
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Collapsing Market)
21,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This is a brilliantly weird and hypnotic record, featuring pretty much nothing but the voice of conceptual artist Hanne Lippard reading a variety of texts typical of our digital age - things like autoresponders, FAQ’s, social media posts, bot-generated spam mail etc (or as she calls it ‘degenerate, or “b-language”) as a continuation of her ongoing investigation of the differences between the spoken and the written word. The result is entrancing, funny/sad in an almost Larkinian way and highly thought provoking, a cross between modernist sound poetry, layered social commentary and uncanny Asmr trigger. From a label that’s given us releases from Nkisi, Tehran’s Morteza Hannaneh and Ron Morelli - it’s an intriguing move. Lippard is an artist of some international acclaim, and as far as we’re aware ‘Work’ is her first recorded sound document available commercially. In it she takes a variety of empty, seemingly meaningless texts from Wiki pages, corporate websites, spam mail, museum FAQ’s etc and reenacts them vocally with some stylistic and semantic interventions. Her monologues take the texts out of cold states and into something that’s perhaps even more ambiguous - repetition, metre, intonation and the rhythm of the language itself all become tools for manipulation. One reading is intimate. The next, alienating. But why, and how?
Ron Morelli - Man Walks The Earth
Ron Morelli
Man Walks The Earth
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Collapsing Market)
17,99 €* 19,99 € -10%
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
L.I.E.S. Records founder Ron Morelli departs the club to investigate atavistic ambient themes in his 4th solo LP and debut for the Paris-based Collapsing Market. For the first time on record, Morelli mostly mutes his drum track channels and allows his sounds to freely float in imagined air. In the process he crisply reveals a latent, introspective side to his music that’s been missing or occluded by noise in his clutch of grubby sores issued by Hospital Productions since 2013 - back when he changed his address from Brooklyn, NYC to the heart of the Parisian electronic music scene. As such the 8 bony diffusions of ‘Man Walks The Earth’ mark distance travelled from the gobs of 2013’s ‘Spit’, documenting a change of mindset from grizzled and paranoid to a more soberly contemplative and drily poetic expression of self.
Eszaid - Eurosouvenir
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Collapsing Market)
19,94 €* 20,99 € -5%
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Collapsing Market co-founder Eszaid sums up the mood of a Europe on the brink with ‘Eurosouvenir’, a raw and gloomy debut album inspired by the metaphoric symbolism of 0€ banknotes found at tourist hotspots across the continent. Hoghy recommended if yr into Ron Morelli, Pan Sonic, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement.
