Athens Inner City Broadcast #18 - Substunce Sans Scrupule and Other Dromena

Thursday 14th December 2017 19:00 - 20:00 GMT

Substunce Sans Scrupule" is a dream. A hazy dream born in the emptiness between the words of "Igitur ou La folie d'Elbehnon" by Stéphane Mallarmé. A dream that sought Marcel Proust's lost time and constituted the light and the black void between the single frame of Gregory Markopoulos. It is the birth and the destruction of the work of art, primitivism and science.

"Substunce Sans Scrupule" is as much Georgios Karamanolaki's automatic writing on the work of Jean-Marc Foussat as Jean-Marc Foussat's on the work of Georgios Karamanolakis, imagined and recorded in 2017 in Paris and Athens. The ultra vivid dialogue and communication between the artists creates a completely spontaneous work of 43 minutes that constitutes an immersive ritual of shocking sound, illusionary image and complementarity.

In "Substunce Sans Scrupule" we witness the union of musique concrète ideas with noise, of field recordings with vocal delays, of electroacoustic music with drone.
In "Substunce Sans Scrupule" the faraway splinters of jazz fuse with japanoise, the dreamy with the real, the Magical-Religious with the Scientific.

Α fragment of time documented in 140g 12" vinyl record format, in an edition of 300 hand numbered copies.
