is a new project by Hungarian-born artists and musicians Éva Polgár
and Sándor Vály
. (We previously reviewed the pair’s 2014 collaboration, Gilgamesh
.) Working with Nea Lindgren
and Mikael Jurmu
, they create Dada-inspired sound collages, performed on instruments built out of junk found on the street and in dumpsters. The music is created as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Dada, in fact, and serves as a backdrop for recitations of poems and proclamations by Kurt Schwitters
, Hugo Ball
, Hans Arp
, and Francis Picabia
They’ve released a video for their setting of Schwitters’ poem “Enemy Alien,” directed by Vály. Watch it below.
