Rules Of The Universe
(Kye - KYE25) 2xLP $26.00
Fully authorized anthology of archival audio work by the Dutch artist whose stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but scant documentation of his audio work has been difficult to locate. Recordings of Heyboer’s anomalous music trickled out on micro-edition CDs and CDRs through the Anton Heyboer Foundation in the 1990s, decades after his She And She As One LP (EMI 1976 ) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that the label withdrew and destroyed the unsold copies. With full approval from VOF Heyboer and overseen by Lotti Heyboer, Rules Of The Universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the CDR editions, supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks, and ultimately offering a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th Century’s most original artistic minds. Gatefold sleeve, fold-out color poster, edition of 500.
