It’s cauld – it’s dark – through the dread waste
Yon starn, sae red, and sma,
Presses its weak, encumberd, beam,
To perish in the sna’.
Och! Och! it’s mirk – the furious storm,
Howls round the hill sae high;
And black, and awfu’, on the earth,
Sits down the laiden sky.
[Robert Couper, 1804]
Capac celebrates the cold winter season with a fascinating collection (and an unprecedented combustible edition) * Strië tells about the perpetual journey of Laïka the Russian space dog.
Different kind of memories and mixed emotions: about the Russian space travel era in the late 50’s, about bedtime stories of mysterious central european cultures as told by a travelling grandfather, and about ‘Saudade’ – feelings to cherish.
Swoop and Cross tells stories of disintegration, Overshift plays with light and shade, and Ed Carlsen displays elusive frames…
“Follow me into a movie that you might want to see sometime… a movie that’s happening in the back of your own head…”
And remember: “use your ears, not your prejudices”…
Drones and Performances: Yann Novak‘s ‘The Future Is A Forward Escape Into The Past’, ‘Glass’ by Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alva Noto, and Tonaliens’ self-titled album.
“How beautiful. How magic. How catastrophic”
