Eric Schmid // Dedicated to Dieter Roth TAPE

  • Availability:

当店おなじみのアメリカ・シカゴの数学者/哲学者Eric Schmidが、Sean McCann主宰レーベルRecitalより2020年8月に75本限定でリリースしたカセットです。

本作は、ドイツ人美術家Dieter Rothに捧げたカセットで、Rothの1978年発表作Loreleiのオマージュを収録しています。当店で取り扱っている他作品はノイズ色が強いですが、今作は60分の即興ピアノ作品となっています。

Edition of 75. Wrapped in printed Schmid drawing, sealed with black rubberband.

Sean McCann:

"Visual and sound artist Eric Schmid improvising for an hour on an electronic piano. Schmid’s trampled notes and chords leak out of a big broken faucet on Dedicated to Dieter Roth. Relentlessly dripping and dancing down the drain, indifferent to anyone observing. Colloquial themes, “Chopsticks” and “Fur Elise” are discovered in the mist of his wandering, along with something he told me was an Idea Fire Company riff, which I couldn’t quite place in all honesty. Though, his honesty is what I find most interesting here, what you can learn about someone in the details of endurance.

This tape is an ode to the unparalleled Swiss artist Dieter Roth’s (1930-1998) piano relay race Lorelei (1978). Dubbed “The Long Distance Sonata” Lorelei is a sweeping edition, each containing 38 cassettes of piano improvisations performed by Dieter and his children Björn and Vera. Hansjörg Mayer showed me his copy of the edition (he helped publish) in his studio last year in London. What a beautiful box, adorned with Roth’s drawing and markings: the object also includes a mounted tape player and radio (rigged to bleed the tape and radio simultaneously). The radio element is ignored here, but rather the brutal and honest ethos of Roth is held high in spirit.

The deluxe edition comes with an original artwork made by Schmid and Ryan Nault. Various objects sealed in a plastic bag: watercolors, a pizza box, rice, stained paper, drawings, flowers etc. Their book Ethos Headz, documenting all the objects, is also included. Eric wanted to keep this special edition affordable for anyone to be able to buy, so we have kept the pricing low."
