Laddaga, Reinaldo: Things That A Mutant Needs To Know [BOOK + 2 CDs] (Unsounds)
Label: Unsounds    
Released in: Netherlands    


"A collection of fifty-five short tales and fifty-five brief musical works composed by a momentary collective of eighteen musicians.Texts

Reinaldo Laddaga has created the fictional second volume of an anthology that Argentinean writers Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares published in Buenos Aires in 1956. The result is an enchanting and somber collection of very short texts, where the most diverse authors (from Lucian of Samosata to Virginia Woolf, from Emmanuel Swedenborg to Blaise Cendrars) tell stories of walking trees, burning dresses, illnesses mysteriously cured and deaths surprisingly reversed.Music

Sonic interpretations of the stories composed by artists and musicians often previously featured on Unsounds. The pieces were created specifically, as personal reactions to the texts and their resonances. From a rich and diverse collection of materials, Reinaldo Laddaga and Yannis Kyriakides have assembled a double CD that is a powerful complement to the reading of the stories, but can be also approached as a self-standing sound work.Composers

Christine Abdelnour, Claudio Baroni, Justin Bennett, Sylvia Borzelli, John Butcher, Alan Courtis, DJ Sniff, Barbara Ellison, Ron Ford, Yannis Kyriakides, Anne LaBerge, Reinaldo Laddaga, Francisco López, Machinefabriek, Andy Moor, Gabriel Paiuk, Santiago Santero and Felipe Waller.Illustrations

The book comprises 10 original illustrations by Isabelle Vigier who is also responsible for the design.
