Artist: CHRISTIANSEN, HENNING
Title: Satie i høj sø
Format: LP
Label: Institut for Dansk Lydarkaeologi
Country: Denmark
Price: $35.00
"The most enigmatic and rare of Danish artist and composer Henning Christiansens albums Satie i høj sø is now re-issued by Institute for Danish Sound Archeology and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark. The album collects five central works from Christiansens neo-romantic period in the 1970s. This completely overlooked and virtually unheard period in Henning Christiansens oevre contains perhaps his most fascinating and beautiful works. For 10 years from 1969-79 Christiansen turned his back to the art scene and made a very unorthodox artistic decision: To leave behind "art for arts sake", Fluxus and the concretist art music, that he had invented in the 1960s. Instead he created a music that was a positive vision for the future. A music that would make it "sing" inside the listeners – and by changing them would change the world. A convinced communist, Christiansen created wonderful joyous waltzes and dancing melodies that set to bring about a revolution – both an inner and an outer revolution – by believing in the good in the world and by having hope for a bright future. Now, with the re-release of Satie i høj sø the music can make it sing inside us again." - Institut for Dansk Lydarkaeologi.

Artist: HAVE, HENRIK
Title: Architecture Piece op. 2, 1989
Format: 5" Sandpaper Disc/Art
Label: Institut for Dansk Lydarkaeologi
Country: Denmark
Price: $78.00
"Architecture Piece op. 2 was originally created to be part of a black cardboard box published in 1989 by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark, thus predating the official foundation of the museum in 1991. The box was conceptualized and designed by Henrik Have himself. It was part of a fundraising strategy to meet the requirements for the museum to gain state recognition. Museum shares were issued and sold for 1,000 DKK. Each share was accompanied by one of the cardboard boxes and a graphic work, also by Henrik Have. The boxes each contained a flexi disc with a recording of a spoken word performance by Fluxus artist Alison Knowles along with loose pages of images of the baroque buildings where the museum is housed, a poster, quotes by John Cage and Hans Christian Andersen folded as leporellos, and loose printed pages of vision and strategy statements for the museum. Some but not all of the boxes included the Architecture Piece op. 2 edition by Have. The edition exists in slightly different versions with varying colors of sandpaper of different grit sizes.

The sandpaper record places itself in the tradition of "anti-records" generallyrally credited back to Milan Knižáks Broken Music (1979) where a number of existing records were treated physically by painting on the surfaces, scratching with nails, sawing different records in pieces, glueing them together with other records etc. Several other sandpaper records have been published. Pete Horobins mail art work Dysart (1983) consists of a worn 7” sandpaper record in a paper sleeve with the outline of a hand and a used bandage attached. Perhaps the best known examples are the double 7” sandpaper records by Richard D. James aka Aphex Twin, released in 1994 and used in DJ sets by James himself.

The sandpaper record also echoes the famous artist book Mémoires (1959) by artists Asger Jorn and Guy Debord. The book was bound in sandpaper and meant to destroy the neighboring books it was placed next to on the shelf. The record player covered in plaster bandage is in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, as part of the installation Fibre Music (1992) by Henrik Have. The installation also includes a framed image of the record player identical to the one included in this release.

The few remaining copies of Architecture Piece op. 2 are re-released by The Institute for Danish Sound Archaeology in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art." - "Architecture Piece op. 2 was originally created to be part of a black cardboard box published in 1989 by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark, thus predating the official foundation of the museum in 1991.

Artist: KNOWLES, ALISON
Title: The California Sandals, 1989
Format: 7" Flexi-Disc
Label: Institut for Dansk Lydarkaeologi
Country: Denmark
Price: $42.00
"The flexi disc The California Sandals was originally released as part of a black cardboard box published by The Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark in 1989, thus predating the official foundation of the museum in 1991. The box was part of a fundraising strategy to meet the requirements for the museum to gain state recognition. Museum shares were issued and sold for 1,000 DKK. Each share was accompanied by one of the cardboard boxes. The box was conceptualized and designed by Danish artist Henrik Have and in addition to the flexi disc, some boxes contained an edition work by Have himself – Architecture Piece op. 2 – a sandpaper 5” record with a small square of plaster attached. Moreover, the box contained loose pages of images of the baroque buildings where the museum is housed, a poster, quotes by John Cage and Hans Christian Andersen, folded as leporellos, and printed pages of vision statements and strategies for the museum. The recording on the flexi disc documents a spoken word performance by the American artist Alison Knowles, recorded in the great hall of the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. The performance took place on May 29th 1985 and was part of the Festival of Fantastics. In the piece, Knowles reads the text The California Sandals from her book More, published by Unpublished Edition, New York, 1970. In the book, The California Sandals is prefaced by the text Proposition VII: “Study an object thoroughly; one with which you are already familiar. Present your observations as a performance”. The Festival of Fantastics took place in Roskilde between May 24th and June 3rd 1985. Ten international artists, all closely associated with the Fluxus movement, presented a series of events, performances, concerts, and actions in Roskilde and the surrounding area: In the city square Stændertorvet, on the streets, at the Viking Ship Museum, in the library, the law courts, the culture centre, the Roskilde Convention Centre, in taxis, in the towns parks and on board a ship in Roskilde Fjord. Galleri Skt. Agnes, the citys only gallery for experimental art at the time, was the official organizer of the festival and arranged a small exhibition of Fluxus works and installations in the gallery and the nearby stable building, which is part of the baroque buildings where the museum now resides. The Festival of Fantastics plays a central part in the early history of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde. A comprehensive archive of the event, documentation, and artifacts are present in the museums archive and collection, and the spirit of Fluxus remains a central part of the museums DNA to this day. The remaining copies of the original flexi disc pressing are re-released by The Institute for Danish Sound Archaeology in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art." - Institut for Dansk Lydarkaeologi.
