"The compact disc by Anton Bruhin issued by Alga Marghen is titled r o t o m o t o r and covers two different areas of the artist's research. The first one is represented by a group of works including the short and mysterious environmental recording 'ORAX' as well as 'Lange Tone', 'VERSUCHPILZ 6' and 'Paul is 35', three excerpts from the epic 'MC-10 zyklus' created between 1976 and 1977 recording various layers of sound sources on two cassette recorders with loudspeakers. 'r o t o m o t o r: ein motorische Idiotikon', the title track, is a 28 minutes long reading, one of Bruhin's major works. Rotomotor is a poetic Idiotikon of the swiss-german dialect where, instead of the straight alphabetical order, the words are organised according to the similarities of their letters (each word differ from the previous one by just one letter). For this reading a delay equipment which repeated the signal after 0.6 seconds was used and each word is superimposed to the echo of the preceding one. On one hand this echo generates the rhythm of the performance, on the other it supports the acoustic metamorphosis of the words. Again, a very simple concept perfectly accomplished. What results from the whole program is maybe difficult to describe, maybe more easily perceivable in a state of alternate consciousness. But surely a quite unique sense of acoustics approach. Chance meeting in an Alpine chalet of a roto-Bruhin and an AKRE." (label info)
