Dan Lander - Zoo CD 27223
Dan Lander is mischievous with his tools, you can hear him grin at several points throughout these recordings. His approach has a sense of play and naturalness that one rarely hears. These are works sans woosh, bare, sometimes painful and always passionate, as in works with intelligence, precision and guts. Lander has had several lives ? photojournalist, truck driver, video maker, gorillagramme, drummer, performance artist, amongst others - all of which instill his audio work with a maturity of content, an economy of form, an immediacy of bareness. This release follows Lander chronologically, begining with a treatment of the mass, or lack thereof, of radio in the work Talking to a Loudspeaker. The calling of 'Mister Speaker' - the variations on broadcast quality and the snicker at our phobia with dead air, are classic moments in the freshly inaugurated pantheon of radio art classics. With a keen ear for the incision, Lander takes your radio, sets it on its back and takes its components apart. When you get it back in one piece, you end up not sure if you want it to work anymore.
