Record Release Party
24 November 2019 West Germany Berlin

»Deconceptual Voicings« is a vinyl album by Marc Matter and Stefan Römer, collecting eight songs of vocal music. All compositions are based on interviews with a series of conceptual artists — Martha Rosler, Ed Ruscha, Andrea Fraser, Sol LeWitt, Shilpa Gupta, Art & Language, Lawrence Weiner, and Yvonne Rainer.

Selected statements were transformed into songs: speech fragments, syllables and consonants became rhythmic patterns, while slogans, statements and text passages were sampled into sprechgesang. »Deconceptual Voicings« suggests a global polyphony of positions and sounds, and is a homage to all the artists involved. 

The project is based on an idea by Stefan Römer and Marc Matter (concept and composition), assisted by Lizzie Davis (sound engineering) and Dirk Lebahn (graphic design). The artists' interviews were recorded for Römer's essay film Conceptual Paradise (2006). The cover artwork is by Ed Ruscha.

Supported by Musikfonds e. V. mit Projektmitteln der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien

Besides a live performance of Marc Matter & Stefan Römer also Das Das, Wilted Woman, and Andreas Reihse will musically contribute.
