Here we have a three-way split with three distinct artistic practices by Jesper Elving, Tobias Kirstein and Claus Haxholm.
Jesper Elving produces extra-lingual poems, with self-composed words put into strict gridlike structures that give the sense of musicality and enhance the more meditational effect of Elvings poetic constructions. Tobias Kirstein has worked with the hidden values of sound and being, not necessarily as an occult practice but rather in the vein of of LeWitts iconic Sentences ; “the conceptual artist is rather a Mystic than a rationalist” and through this lens Kirstein works with History and a sort of Introvert activism often via Drone and field recording. Claus Haxholm is an Artist and Musician working with tropes of Black Metal, analysing and dissecting the vocal expression of this genre. Solely focusing on the vocal, Haxholm shifts the perspective from the emotional and narrative to the more analytical bodily manifestations of screaming out your guts and lungs.
The release works as a human-designed prism, dealing with the prime elements of Language: Letter, Context and Emotion; all connected in “Expression” (voicing/communication) – something that Language somehow often seems to have a hard time splitting itself from. That split is not constructed here, but at least it opens bit up and all of the Expressions on this release expands on what (mind/throat-based) Language can take the form of. Personal and Collectively.
