Second album of Cawa Sorix, Pipistrello is a mix of various compositions recorded over the past few years. Working with tapes he writes his poetry with his dictaphones mixing found footage, music and his own voice in a playful collage cut up. Sometimes violent or epileptic, sometimes sweet and touching but always humorous such is the bizarre universe of Cawa Sorix.
50 mini Cdrs with original handmade artwork (3 drawings/cd) and inserts.
Cawa-Sorix is the sound project of Grenoble (fr) based poet, drawer and artist Tito Gascuel. Since 1995 he sometimes works as an illustrator, has released several books and images -recently for the Orbis Pictus Club, but also fanzines, tracts, collages, mail-art, micro-edition and cut-up comics. He has also composed writings and soundtracks for theater, radio pieces, movies, and showed cheap videos and exhibitions in such places as squats like "Le Brise Glace" or "La Generale" (Grenoble, Paris, etc.). His first album Fledermaus was released in 2004 by french label universinternational.
“C’est le moyen pauvre qui m’a donné l’idée. Tape-to-tape = vampire business. One night, Bruce Wayne saw a living bat, as an omen : « I shall become a bat ! », he said (1939). C’est la superstition qui fait les noms d’artistes, as the college’s names : Aragon, Prévert, Pablo Neruda. Nothing to do with that stuff, my loving technique ISN'T about FAME. Just need some good sounds, voice, a floor, a machine. Sometimes i stop, but mostly i don’t. J’ai seulement besoin d’appuyer sur les touches du lecteur, un besoin inutile : unusefull is my lovable technique. Originally, my audio-tape player was defective; so, i obtained double tracks, and often overdubbed them. A rub’a’dub style is born. Not my voice, not my music, mais something like le kung-fu. Ou pire. Meanwhile, i met some clever people that loved that. This is writed, this is done.“
