Soave present the first vinyl reissue of Wolf Vostells debut D_ɬ©-coll/age Musik, originally released in 1982. A seminal figure in the history of 20th century avant-garde, yet sinfully overlooked, Wolf Vostell unleashed ideas - those running wild through his debut LP D_ɬ©-coll/age Musik - which remain a slap to the face, more than half a century after they were set into play. A founding member of fluxus, an early instigator of happenings, an innovator of video art, Vostell was equally one of the most radical and irreverent practitioners in sound that the world has ever known. First released in 1982, D_ɬ©-coll/age Musik draws from material dating between the late 1950s and early 80s - the results of Vostells application of d_ɬ©collage, the near perfect inversion of collage. Rather than gathered and assembled sounds, as with musique concr_ɬ®te, these are the result of subtractions from a former whole - the death of one, giving life to the next. Swelling from the past, Vostells efforts pull the rug from beneath the common history of structured sound. A singular body with no loyalty, producing shocking results. A grinding confrontation - an intoxicating immersion in sound - as brutal as it is ecstatic - an exercise in joy. D_ɬ©-coll/age Musik assembles the essence of a creative spirit which is rarely known. Each work as radical and fresh today as the moment it was made. Comes in a gatefold sleeve. - Soave.
