crou027: The Hafler Trio + Willem de Ridder: No One Remains 10″
The Hafler Trio + Willem de Ridder
“No One Remains”
Crouton is pleased to present No One Remains from The Hafler Trio and Willem de Ridder. The elements contained are highly interrelated, and also cover all the senses; sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch, sometimes crossing into the opposite of those senses to create a quite complex series of ideas to be unraveled. Instructions containing clues on how to decipher some of the material are provided. However, close attention is required.
Featuring a hand constructed, engraved, and painted wooden box, the screen printing work of Siwa’s Alan Sherry, 180 gm DMM clear virgin vinyl, and a few other things which are intended for you to discover on your own, this box and all the materials surrounding and contained with it are limited to a numbered edition of only 200. A fine collector’s piece certainly, it is also extremely valuable intrinsically.
The Hafler Trio is Andrew M. McKenzie (from Newcastle, England — currently residing in Reykjavík, Iceland) working in the field of psychoacoustics and sonic research. Since 1982, The Hafler Trio has produced a prolific body of work involving art, science, sound, religion, comedy and philosophy — emphasizing a dynamic balance and interplay of ‘body’ ‘mind’ and ’spirit’ over any one of these. McKenzie has previously worked with members of Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA, Nurse With Wound, Psychic TV, Whitehouse and Zoviet France. Andrew has also collaborated with performance artists John Duncan and Annie Sprinkle, ex-Fluxus artist Willem De Ridder, artist/designer Neville Brody, and sound/poetry artist Z’EV. Recently, The Hafler Trio are concerned with the ramifications of technology and the creation of the most extreme, all inclusive experience as possible, that ‘resonates’ over a period of time lasting much longer than just the physical time it takes to apprehend it, and affects and engages all levels of being.
Willem de Ridder was one of the early participants of the Fluxus movement. He is a story-teller and artist extraordinaire. His complete and lengthy bio can be read here:
