Art Rock

Records by Artists, 1958-1990
Giorgio Maffei
Viaindustriae, Foligno, 2013

Catalogue from an exhibition held at the University of Bologna last year. I like the idea of artists making music. I have no idea of what most of these records sound like, though some of the Tristram Carey has been released by Trunk Records, and recordings of Henri Chopin's excellent poetry and electronics are around. 

I like to project possibilities onto the remainder: Joseph Beuys' motorik krautrock outfit; Jean Dubuffet and Asger Jorn's free jazz combo; Brion Gysin's trance project; Yves Klein's Kind of Blue... The Blue Album... Eine Kleine Klein Musik...
