Une Usine Sons

Delighted to discover that Damon Krukowski has curated a sonic accompaniment to the Super Vision show opening at ICA/Boston on 10 December. I went straight for the excerpt from Henri Chopin's demonstration of the fact that "the human body is a factory of sound," but there are twenty-three other tracks to explore as well (eight selected by Bhob Rainey, sixteen by Kenneth Goldsmith). • I also owe my recent exposure to, and instant admiration of, Tomokawa Kazuki's stunning voice to Damon and Naomi's connoisseurship of "international sad hits." The track "Kasai Zenzo" can be heard on the 20|20|20 homepage, reviews of the whole cd are digested here.
