about

This record is a brief journey through Dada art movement. Opening track is dedicated to Cabaret Voltaire, a swiss nightclub where all started by a group of european artists. First founder, and subject of second track, was Hugo Ball (he wrote the small poem I-Zimbra, which was subsequently used as a lyrics by Talking Heads in their namesake song). Hence continues the portrait gallery of Dadaists, interrupted sometimes by three small tracks called Shiver.
To people with few, or no knowledge about dadaists, reading the booklet is strongly recommended.

Track Name: Hans Arp
SPEECH:

Disgusted by the slaughter of the World War in 1914, we dedicated ourselves to the fine arts in Zurich.

While in the distance the thunder of the cannons rumbled, we sang, painted, glued, wrote with all our strength.

We were looking for an elemental art which would heal people of the madness of the times and a new order which would restore the balance between heaven and hell.

Madness and murder were competing with each other as Dada was born of primeval sources in Zurich in 1916.

The people who were not directly involved in the horrible insanity of the World War acted as though they didn’t understand what was taking place all around them.

They stared into space with glassy eyes like lost lambs.

Dada sought to wake them up from their pitiful impotence.

Dada abhorred resignation.
