Jacob Dwyer - The Devil Museum
One of our favourite labels Mana are back with an exceptional record of spoken word, ambient sounds and field records. When these different parts are pieced together they make what can be described as a radio play, it is Blue Jam with out the satire, it is a piece of realism which take you away from the moment it starts. It is not something easy for us to explain, so we'll let the artist give you a little context below.
“In January, 2018, I travelled to Lithuania. I was staying in a small wooden cabin in the middle of a forest and was there to photograph all 3000 sculptures in the nearby Devil Museum. The project was funded by the Mondriaan Fund but two months earlier I’d lent the entire budget (8,000€) to my friend, Martin. He’d just gotten a new job at Rainbow Solutions. I’m not sure what they did but they'd given him a company car with a huge sunroof and a big rainbow printed on the bonnet.
Over the following four weeks in Lithuania I kept an audio diary and recorded sounds in and around my cabin. I met no one and spoke about meeting no one. I remembered Crow Man and the time I sold my mum a kilo of scallops. I listened to the door hinge and I recorded the river, with its small islands of ice brushing up against the banks like a pulse. It’s a nice word, ‘pulse’; the motion of an artery as blood is driven through it by the heart."
