PVA in Hair & Kommissar Hjuler und Frau


FLUXUS-cover FLUXUS-back

PVA in Hair & Kommissar Hjuler und Frau split one-sided LP issued in a limited edition of 100 copies on the German label Psych.KG (Psych.KG 145) in early 2014, as a part of (SHMF-019+…)-project DIE ANTIZIPATION DES GENERALIZED OTHER.

Prolific German artists Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer run a project called (SHMF-019+…) for which any artists are allowed to create versions of the reading DIE ANTIZIPATION DES GENERALIZED OTHER. A tape, several CD-Rs and some LPs still have become released in this series on Der Schoene-Hjuler-Memorial-Fond. “The Generalized Other refers to George Herbert Mead’s psychological explanation for the origin of social self-consciousness. Within Mead’s theory, is the act of ‘role-taking’ in which individuals react to social gestures, and adjust to common attitudes. Through ‘role-taking’, people adapt to social exchanges based on gesture-response action sequences. Self-consciousness is then developed through these social actions and completed upon personal reflection. This text is hard to handle for other artists, we now have given away quite a lot of free Audio-CD-Rs to other artists, but only few were able to work with our spoken text. It is a stumbling dialogue with reading parts and conversation parts and in the result we do by far not justice to the grandilocant or intellectual theme.”

In early 2014 the German label Psych.KG started a series of LP or MC releases by active fluxus artists and outsider artists, entitled “FLUXUS”. The project is curated by Matthias Horn and Kommissar Hjuler und Frau, whose prolific work in post-industrial noise has included countless recordings and collaborations, including those with Smegma, Nihilist Spasm Band, Conrad Schnitzler & Ken Montgomery, albrecht/d, and many others.

This edition of FLUXUS Psych.KG 145 (black edition) is a vocal, dialogue-based one-sided split LP between Kommissar Hjuler und Frau and the Melbourne artists PVA in Hair, who’s delirious cassette recordings capture a haunting, erratic, broken and intoxicating domestic anguish/bliss through bedroom chambers of voice and atmospheric sounds. It is released as a special part of the (SHMF-019+…) project.
