Nicolas Jaar – Network BOOK

Printed Matter is pleased to announce the publication of Network, an artists’ project by Nicolas Jaar, co-published with his label Other People. Designed by Jena Myung and Maziyar Pahlevan, the book is the culmination of a multi-phase project from Jaar which takes the form of an online, semi-fictitious network of interlocking radio stations built around chance operations.

Network, like the web-based radio network which precedes it, is conceived in thirds and built from three primary threads:

i. new visual essays and text contributions from Lydia Lunch, Linda van Deursen and Nicolas Jaar

ii. poster artwork advertising 111 radio shows (across 333 stations) created by Pahlevan, Myung, and Jaar

iii. Loose transcriptions of each radio program, comprised of sprawling text culminating in a full-color section of manipulated images.

Invited in 2015 by the BBC to participate in a 6-month residency, Jaar instead set out to write a radio play which positioned an invented DJ at the helm of his own residency inside a fake BBC-style radio world. The program was ultimately deemed too far out and never realized. In its place Jaar approached programmer Cole Brown to collaboratively devise http://other-people.network, a website which would host the programs on continuous loop inviting users to sift through the stations with a radio like dial – and later – a random number inputting system, 1-333.

The stations are made up of more than 20 hours of Jaar’s own mixes as well as original music, among them his recently released album Sirens – the remaining are constructed “fakes”, conceptual audio works created with the help of voice actors. Billionaire FM counts down and offers commentary on the annual Forbes list of world’s top billionaires one by one. MATTA CLARK DEMOLITIONS is comprised of “noises” gathered from the structures which artist Gordon Matta Clark transformed into architectural cut-ups. Red Bull Sponsored Revolutions plays Mozart 24/7.

In its form and content, Network gives theoretical consideration to the inherent political possibilities of radio broadcast. The contributed texts and transcribed radio-chatter that filter through the book offer ways of resistance against entrenched power-structures (of political systems, of the mega-wealthy). Resistencia de Ayer Es La Resistencia de hoy, a station which plays exclusively Latin American Resistance music from the 60-70s, is one such example, though the work of the project is more broadly interested in the model/mechanism itself, a distribution system (in radio and publications alike) which is capable of operating ‘underground’, through pirate channels, and outside the reach of the State. Nicolas Jaar’s Network is looking for word of the revolution, but guarded against the fear it may come Red Bull-sponsored.

Network is 8 x 11 inches, 336 pages, otabound with smythe sewn signatures. The publication features fore-edge printing and includes a half-sheet bookmark. It is printed on 120 gsm Munken Polar Rough, in a first edition of 1100 copies.

Various Artists – Mono No Aware 2xLP – PAN & Mount Analog exclusive / Limited Art Edition

Limited Edition of 100 copies.

Mono No Aware is the first compilation to be released on PAN, curated unreleased ambient tracks from both new and existing PAN artists. Featuring Helm, TCF, Yves Tumor, M.E.S.H., Pan Daijing, ADR, Bill Kouligas and more.

“Mono No Aware”, ‘the pathos of things’, also translates as “an empathy toward things”, or “a sensitivity to ephemera”. A term for the awareness of impermanence, or the transience of things. A meditation on mortality and life’s transience, ephemerality heightens the appreciation of beauty and sensitivity to their passing. In investigating the passing of time, the boundaries between memory and hallucination become blurred; between fiction and reality. The movement of time transforms into an eternal present.

The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, featuring photography by Molly Matalon and design by Bill Kouligas. A Limited Version of 100 copies will be released as a special art edition in collaboration with Mount Analog for Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair 2017 (spanning Feb 23-26). All copies arrive with photo print and hand-stamped vinyl, copies sold onsite are also hand-numbered and signed by artist.  Limited pre-order release via Mount Analog shipping March 1.

Val Denham – Tranart BOOK

Richly illustrated (more than 250 illustrations and photos) and oversized monograph displaying the variety of Val Denham’s different styles, techniques and subjects from her early 70’s productions ’till now.

This is not a reprint but an entirely new book, with 80% previously unseen art and 20% indispensable highlights from the long sold-out first Val Denham book “Dysphoria”, making it an essential purchase for new and late-comers as well as those who already have the earlier book.

It also includes new texts: an appreciation by Graham “Ideal” Duff, an inside view by Gail Denham, and a spectacular seven page introduction by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, plus some very amusing and enlightening texts by Val herself, and archives with poems and correspondence from Genesis P-Orridge and Jhonn Balance.

288 pages. Hardcover with gold foil-block printing. Limited to 300 copies

About the artist:

Val Denham is an artist, poet, musician and transgender icon from Yorkshire, England.

Born in 1957, she has been creating her own universe since being a little boy.

She seems to have inspired a lot of people. Either way she couldn’t care less.

She has been labelled an “Outsider artist” in some quarters. However, she describes herself as “A cleaning lady”. Val perfectly explains her modus operandi: “I employ a figurative and non-figurative semi surrealist symbolism…my art is a kind of therapy…the internal map of my neuroses, severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Gender Dysphoria…analyse the surface of Tranart (Val’s name for her own art) and you glimpse neurotic hieroglyphs trying to describe what it is to be me…meanings are always masked in a kind of visual code within my work. Even now I employ obscuring patterns and imagery; though the reason to do so no longer exists…I no longer live a double life suppressing my true nature, but the code remains.”

She once did some record covers for Marc Almond, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and a few others She also releases her own idiosyncratic songs for her ever growing fan base across the world.

Various – The Enlightening Beam of Bobby Brown CASSETTE/Book

Bobby Brown exists beyond being. Bobby’s documented music covers a dynamic emotional and spiritual terrain, his vocals, ever prominent, traverse six octaves of sound. Bobby’s understanding of — and unbending faith — in physics and technology manifest in unbelievable instrumental and intellectual innovations. Bobby’s dedication to the fundaments of peace and love radiate across time and space.

Operating at the fringe of the early 70s psychedelic and folk spheres, his 1972 self-funded and released debut album, The Enlightening Beam of Axonda, demonstrates the many cosmic qualities of Bobby Brown. Beyond Bobby’s voice and message, the most beguiling aspect of Enlightening is “The Universal One Man Orchestra,” a 311 stringed instrument implementing aspects of the Irish harp, koto, sitar, thumb piano, dulcimer, drums and flute and “designed to be as small as possible and placed on racks so as to be be played from one spot.”

Bobby’s description of the instrument (“primitive, contemporary, and futuristic”) may also serve as a description of the album itself. At once an intimate invocation and a universal journey of earthly and otherworldly proportions, the album ruminates on the vacillating cultural climate of its time and a prayer for a more peaceful place and existence, Axonda.

The following two albums, Live, which was performed solely to his dog ‘Mom’ and recorded after Bobby opened in concert for Fleetwood Mac 1978, and 1982‘s Prayers of a One Man Band, which added hints of popular flavor with a more outward social commentary and comedy, continue along Brown’s illuminated path, spinning tales of his spiritual home in Hawaii, of love, and of total religious unity.

Almost thirty years later, Bobby and RVNG’s Matt Werth struck up a friendship on the back of an e-mail introduction fromDouglas Mcgowan of Yoga Records. After years of correspondence, Bobby and Matt revisited some of the many stories they’ve exchanged at the Berkeley Art Museum on an invitation from David Wilson to participate in a multi-dimensional residency, The Possible. Bay Area artists Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Austin Cesear complimented the discussion with new musical interpretations of Bobby’s work.

A recording of Smith and Cesear’s performances alongside Bobby and Matt’s talk and a compassionate array of photos taken by Aubrey Trinnaman have been collected as a limited cassette and art book edition available from RVNG Intl.

SUB CULTURE Print #3

Iain McKells revered ‘Sub Culture’ book focuses on the UK’s 2 Tone movement during the years 1978/79. Initially intended as a self published portfolio for connecting with photographic agencies and galleries only a small number of the original copies were sold to the public through the legendary Claire de Rouen in London at that time. The rest then sat in Iain’s archive while the few in circulation garnered cult status in the secondary market trading from dealer to collector.

Iain’s introduction to skin head culture came in the late 1960’s at the tender age of 14 via the terrace’s of his local football team. Soon after he was running with his own crew donned in mohair trousers and listening to ska music. It wasn’t until ten years later, after graduating from Exeter Collage of Art, that he started to document the scene’s second wave, which was a twist on the original skin head style called ‘2 Tone’. Sub Culture features shots taken on day trips to Southend, the streets of East and North London, a squat in Kings Cross and at the cult clothing shop “The Last Resort” on Brick Lane.

Thirty six years after its initial publication the remaining archive copies are repackaged with a signed bromide print and represented by Wild Life Press.

These prints are shots taken from the book and are exclusive to Mount Analog, rendered by Wild Life Press themselves.

27″ x 19.5″ Unframed comes rolled in poster tube.
