"The above-mentioned project introduces some extracts from my phonetic diary of 2012. These extracts are phonetic exercises which have nothing to do with the semantics of language. On one hand it is comparable with desultory text writing in the spirit of the surrealist André Breton, and that instead of using one's own pencil voice. On the other hand, my actions do follow the Dadaistic principle of Raoul Hausmann : "The sound poem happens in the mouth". The phonetic poetry presented here stands on itself as a sound poem, with the sound poem belonging to the genre of poetry, of literature.
Minimal Wave haul up one of their favourite releases for reissue: Robert Lawrence and Mark Philips (Five Time Of Dust) as The Dadacomputer. Created via tape swaps over the summer of '81 between their home studios in Bristol and Cardiff and issued on their own Quick Stab label, it's more or less an archetypal minimal wave moment; drily monotone but saturated with the nattiest melodies and conducted with that inimitable mixture of playfulness and seriousness inherent to the era's underground DIY scene.
