Robert Barry
Van Abbemuseum (Holland) 1981
VA-01 (LP)
sleeve : EX(wear on corner.)
media : EX/EX(slightly surface noises.)

This is an album released in 1981 by Robert Barry, an artist from New York, U.S.A., who worked with Lawrence Weiner and Joseph Kosuth as a leading figure of conceptual art. This analog release was produced as a project of the Modern Art Museum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. It’s an avant-garde sound poetry work that contains an endless string of words and short sentences, with words like "Sometime", "Non Sence", "Wonder", and "Hoping For" being recited at intervals of about 30 seconds, alternating with silence. At first glance, the poem seems to have no context, but for some reason, the listener tries to find meaning in it, which is very strange. If you play it together with various sounds and music, including environmental and nature sounds, you will see a new view. The artwork is also excellent. Highly recommended.
