Vanessa Sinclair & Douglas Lucas: “Sound 23

An evocative collaboration between Vanessa Sinclair and American sound artist Douglas Lucas. This album contains eight tracks that weave Sinclair’s cut-up poems into revealing packages of sonorous delight. Sometimes harsh and aggressive, sometimes soft and alluring; always seductive in their joint efforts at upheaving the rational mind and its many intellectual accomplices. After the cataclysmic clash of rational refusal, we are here left with the purely sensual delight that comes from giving in to what random chance suggests, and what spontaneous creation actually brings.

The standard edition consists of a CD, an information sheet, three reproduced collages, one reproduced page from Vanessa Sinclair’s remix of Carl Abrahamsson’s novel Mother, Have A Safe Trip, and two photographs of the artists. Numbers 8-23.

The deluxe edition consists of a box containing a CD, an information sheet, three reproduced collages, three reproduced pages from Vanessa Sinclair’s remix of Carl Abrahamsson’s novel Mother, Have A Safe Trip, and four photographs of the artists, plus one original collage, signed by Vanessa Sinclair.
