Released by Alluvial Gold

Cassette tape, full colour digitally printed artwork, 2014.

'Erica Preli's Reggae Weed Party is an audio vérité composition and a compressed document of the eponymous house party held in Arnhem (NL) in late 2012. The event was recorded with a small cassette tape recorder which traveled around the residence in Niko Mihaljevi?'s back pocket. The recorded material – including features such as intoxicated kitchen banter, inept group singing and toilet breaks – was used as the basis for a twenty-five minute sound composition, within which linear reality is rearranged. The reproduced reggae classics enriched by accidental interactions and recorded by the method of 'domestic field recording', create a distinctive musical vocabulary of the piece in which Luc Ferrari and Bob Marley symbolically meet.'
