Dai – Horse, new copies

A few new copies were made of Dai Coelacanth’s A condemned debtor does not recognise the horse. As with the orignal larger edition snippets and fragments of (found) paperworks that were sent by Dai were used in the artwork. The tapes are re-used commercial cassettes, and the lay-out and make-up of those tapes has been integrated in the artwork.

Idwal Fisher listened and wrote:

“We have a thousand dodgy Dictaphone edits each one half a second long and culled from outdoor situations where the bleed through of buffeting wind sounds like a fireman’s hose directed straight in to your ear canal. Snatches of words appear and budgies and announcements in foreign tongues, radio broadcasts are destroyed, conversations between people with middle England accents come and go, whistles and oh the madness. On yet another piece of paper there comes a type written story in which Nancy at Wiggly Green gets a ray gun or something. My brain was fried by now. That Radio 4 New Weird Britain programme never called at Dai Coelacanth’s door. A missed opportunity for both parties. Maybe they just couldn’t find him. Her. Them.”

Out Now! Dai Coelacanth – A condemned debtor does not recognise the Horse

dai2

raw poetry, raw street recordings, raw cuts, lo-fi recorder, re-used commercial tape, sci-fi images, it all blends together in a 2×15 minutes mix. Beautiful? Let’s write that word on the mirror for other people to forget. This tape is not about beauty. This tape is full of scars. Let’s hope they don’t hurt anymore. But if they do, then please come in and listen. You might forget about the pain for a little while.
