Anton Heyboer - Rules Of The Universe (2013)

Anton Heyboer Rules of the Universe 2lp - Click to Close

Otkačeni nizozemski slikar i čudak opće prakse snimio je i svoja mistična javljanja iz dubokih špilja svemira.

kye is proud to announce the release of rules of the universe, a fully authorized anthology of archival audio work by the renowned dutch artist anton heyboer (1924-2005). heyboer's stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but documentation of his audio work is scant and difficult to locate. heyboer's only previous vinyl release - 1976's ill-fated 'she and she as one' lp (emi) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that emi ordered the unsold bulk of the pressing withdrawn and destroyed. further recordings of heyboer's anomalous music eventually trickled out via a string of private press micro-edition cds / cdrs through the anton heyboer foundation in the 1990's.
released with full approval from vof heyboer and overseen by lotti heyboer, rules of the universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the cdr editions and supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks. rules of the universe offers a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known - but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th century's most original artistic minds.

Heyboer grew up in Sumantra & got stuck in the Netherlands due to the outbreak of WWII, where he slowly became an internationally known visual artist. He's mostly remembered for drawings and etchings from the 50s and 60s, and for a sort of pants-to-the-wind primitivism that looked good on him as a younger person & made him look like a crazy homeless uncle in his later years. He's a guy who once checked himself into a mental hospital because he got so upset over a dying cat. As Heyboer got older, he refused to play ball with wealthy gallery owners. He lived on a boat for a while & ended up with multiple wives living in two shacks across the street from each other, one of which eventually turned into a colorful gingerbread house of art. Although he does have one lp from the mid 70s on Dutch EMI, this collects cuts off cdrs he recorded in the 90s/his 60s. He bangs restlessly on a guitar, blows a harmonica forlornly, shoves his voice around on various pitches while already talking, sometimes in English. Same general ballpark as Jandek, although I wouldn't say they give off the same vibe, as Heyboer seems like he might've been knitting while he was making the record. Tracklisting: Meditation Quietness, Trembling, Sometimes There is a Woman in Your Arms, To Live the Life, You Can Make Yourself Healthy By Your Spirit, Woman Gives Herself By Her Eyes and That Is All, Power in the World, Regeneration, Breath to the World, I Live That Life, Try To Find The Beginning of Life, No More Talking, Now
