Cassette released by Pharmacia Poetica, 1985


ahomler2The first ever release by Anna Homler (Los Angeles born and now a recognized contemporary artist from the West Coast), this cassette was part of her own life-long project ‘Pharmacia Poetica’, which started as a radio play and now includes multiple performances, installations, sculptures, writings, etc. It has been described thus: ‘A library of glass bottles rather than books, the “Pharmacia” is a reliquary of the easily overlooked and unnoticed. Mysterious organic substances along with obsolete materials and artifacts reside in deeply hued ambient fluids. Plant-like fibers and filaments are as illusory as memories floating on the edge of consciousness [+]. As far as I remember, the Breadwoman was a performance caracter Homler used once during a performance in a US bookstore (I was unable to find reference for this). This reviewer says of an April 2008 Homler performance: ‘She will discuss the importance of wearing bread and how she discovered a melodic, phonetic language while driving in her car’. The songs on ‘Breadwoman’ are based on Homler’s invented language and Moshier’s keyboard loops and drones, with a timeless, pseudo-primitive quality. Three tracks were included in her first CD ‘Do Do Ya Sa’Di Do’ in 1992, though sometimes with different mixes.

    Don’t you think it’s just the other way round? People getting tired of too much blasé Mutant posts and coming here for the real thing?
