Michael Barthel - Halber Pogo
Michael Barthel is a German conceptual artist who has been working in the fields of musique concrete, noise compositions, concrete phonetic poetry, and fine arts since the 1990s.
Recorded April 2018 straight to tape without overdubs, Halber Pogo is a 60 minute recording in which scripted text pieces are recited from memory. The selection of the pieces is left up to the moment, as much as how much content of each piece is remembered; along with their actually determined pronounciation - that often buggers off. This inaccuracy, the resulting pauses, the sensuality that arises from these circumstances, is what is of interest to Halber Pogo. Edition of 300 copies in six-panel digipak.
