Ulises Carrion - The Poets Tongue (LP re-issue)


"Ulises Carrion's audio works clearly reflect his passion for language, its structures, sounds and meanings. He greatly enjoyed grammatically dissecting languages and trying to understand and explore their structures. His many initiatives and projects bear witness to his boundless obsessions with communication and circulation of works and ideas as a cultural strategy... All pieces, recorded at the Instituut voor Sonologie in Utrecht in 1977, have in common their refusal of discursiveness... Each piece is a series of vocal units that unfolds according to simple rules. Their beginning and end are arbitrary – they could go on infinitely.

First LP ever issued by Ulises Carrion who in 1975 ‘created’ the legendary bookshop-gallery “Other Books & So”, the first space dedicated exclusively to artists’ publications such as artists’ records, books, magazines, postcards. Edition limited to 270 copies." - Alga Marghen.
