De Revolutionibus: Sound Homage To Copernicus

(Other Minds) LP $30.00

Through repetition and minimalist processes, the legendary text-sound poet strips words of their literal definitions, with layers of varying fidelity of the vocal recording further obscuring intelligibility. De Revolutionibus combines voice with found sound, synthesizer, and drum machine accompaniment, at once a continuation and expansion of the vast corpus that the artist has built over his decades-long career, vacillating between something like noise assemblage and mutant hip hop. Elements of glitch music, pulsing drums, and grooving low frequencies are paired with more traditional elements of phonetic poetry. Minarelli’s extraterrestrial hybrid is part avant-pop and part maximalist Dada treatise. With color insert that includes notes by the composer.
