Spring Brakers
The Sludgehead Contingent
Kraak - 12.00€ -

An account of Spring Brakers, a project launched during the so-called First Wave. Spring Brakers was an online platform hosting video performances by a different artist each week alongside podcasts on various topics focusing on other labels or musical persuasions.

For this publication, all of the musicians who participated in the project are profiled, resulting in a grounded and oddly inspiring collection of testimonies of how artistic practices are shaped by an era that is still ongoing.

Artists include locals such as Bear Bones, Lay Low, Quanta Qualia, Vica Pacheco, KRAMP, Orphan Fairytale, and more, as well as far-out friends like Ka Baird, MSHR, Jung An Tagen, Eric Frye, and so on.

Each profile has a handy QR to redirect to each artist's video, and each copy includes a code to download a compilation made especially for the publication.

The Fluid Computer

2 side long pieces and a selection of 35mm slides printed on a lush 30 by 30 cm format give an alternative for popular myths “our memory is a tape recorder” and “the exact photographic memory”. When we take time to listen inside own heads, what appears might be closer to the double exposed images and swirling tape manipulations then we imagine.

This music and these pictures are made out of curiosity about how multiple images overlap on film and how waves that arise in tiny electronic circuits translate to the outside world.

Whooshing echoes out of homemade musical circuits and acoustic recordings processed through configuration of tape recorders mix the same way as the colors in the layered images.
