Jack Hammer

The moment I heard this lp, I loved it.  I don't really know what attracted me the most, maybe it was the combination of the earnest beatnik angst and frenetic cellar jazz. Maybe it was the nonsensical logo that strangely reminded me of a fish.  I really don't know.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the years. A Sound Awareness will resume normal cultural production in two weeks time.....

Three Transistions

I couldn't resist this before I took a break.  An early example of video art by Peter Campus.

Normal Transmission Will Resume Shortly

A Sound Awareness will be taking a short break for the next few weeks but rest assured there's lots of interesting bits and pieces coming up soon, such as a look at the graphic work of Destroy All Monsters, experimental design from the Unmann-Wittering Lab and a wonderful little piece written by Jonny Trunk on a rather odd and peculiar project he's been working on.

Fantastic Four 48

My good friend Marc, at Kingly Books, emailed me to say how much he liked my new collage and that the magenta planet put him in mind of this Jack Kirby collage from Fantastic Four 48.  Lovely isn't it.

Odd venue and moving in more ways than expected.

Tal R

Tal R is an Israeli born artist based in Copenhagen. I like his primitive scrapings. It reminds me of Madge Gill's work, which is always a good thing in my book.

The Extraordinary Mediumship Of Madge Gill

Madge Gill believed she could commune with the spirit world through the ritual of drawing.  Her intricate line drawings are thought to be a representation of herself or her lost daughter.   Born in 1882, this very peculiar English outsider created thousands of visionary works, many of which, depicted a woman lost in a hyper state of agitated pattern.
