Doppeldoppelganger on LP

Doppeldoppelganger, a compilation of tracks by poets and sound artists selected by David le Simple and Vincent Romagny, was created on the occasion of the three-exhibition Doppelganger cycle at the Centre Europeen d'Actions Artistiques Contemporaines, Strasbourg, France, curated by Romagny. The double LP is a purely subjective compilation of sound works by artists (Felicia Atkinson, bruant & spangaro), sound from films by artists (David Lamelas), sound poetry and performances (John Giorno, Karl Holmqvist, Lisa Holzer & David Jourdan), works by cult composers (Benjamin Britten, Jean-Francois Pauvros, Gerard Pesson, Jean-Claude Vannier), legendary groups (Deux Filles), unclassifiables (Potima Zen Neumann, Joiejoiejoie), and specially-recorded reprises, including Aidons Antoine mixing Karl Holmqvist, Melissa Saint-Pierre reprising Colin McPhee, Anne Steffens and Don Nino performing Kurt Weill, and David le Simple mixing Minh singt seine Sehnsucht. The album reflects the same concern that drove the exhibitions of the Doppelganger cycle - avoidance of thematic and formal constraints in pursuance of shifts in the concept of the double - plus a grounding in literary texts, which are represented by quotations to be found on the sleeve. Gerard Pesson transcribes Brahms's Fourth Ballade from memory years after hearing the work (Nebenstuck, 1998); Robert Rauschenberg reads, along with other artist friends of John Giorno, from the latter's Pornographic Poem (Raspberry/Pornographic Poem LP, The Intravenus Mind, 1967). 160-gram LP in gatefold sleeve with artwork by Karl Holmqvist and David Jourdan. Edition of 500.
