Arnulf Meifert, Kommissar Hjuler und Frau

Format: LP

Genre: Sound Art

In stock


** Limited edition to 280 copies. ** A record of extreme Poetry and Sound. Arnulf Meifert was the first drummer in the legendary German group Faust (he is only present on "Faust", the first LP issued by Polydor). Later and for many years he was companion of vienna actionist Guenter Brus, whose 50th birthday was celebrated with the publication of the "Panishes Liederbuch" LP (the now mythical first LP issued by Die Taubnessel back in 1988). For the recordings of this new project Meifert met Kommissar Hjuler and his wife Mama Baer, also experimental musicians, but nearly two generations younger. They have been working together for just a few hours, so everything had to be totally improvised. Nevertheless Meifert brought some texts with him, fascinated by confrontations of word and music. These texts range from The Old Testament to renaissance artistry and christian hatespeech from the 20th century, ending with a modern guide for the voyage from death to rebirth. The impressive and singular cover artwork was done by Klaus Holzmann, an upcoming austrian artist. Two letters showing the discussion between Meifert and Hjuler after the meeting are also included.
