epicurean escapism I compilation cd + martin bladh dvd 'video works' + a 24-page catalogue with essay & art works by martin bladh. right on time for the third epicurean escapism festival, the epicurean & silken tofu release another compilation, which is not a mere reissue of the previous epicurean escapism I tape/dvdr set released in 2012, but comes with new & exclusive tracks by irm, krank, jarl as well as a collaboration track by human larvae & anemone tube. apart from this, the set includes a dvd with collected video works by irm mastermind martin bladh and a 24-page catalog with essays and artwork by the same artist. swedish industrial trio irm provide an episodic track constructed with elements from 'indications of nigredo', 'order4' and their new album 'closure' unified into a new, holistic composition, which contrasts aggressive noise segments with the illusionary moments of almost folkish lavishness. the track by john murphy's lately revived project krank is a dark collage of fragmented noise, acoustic samples and female vocals all intermingled in a vortex of sonic chaos. irm member jarl contributes a subtle piece of circulating drone sound, whose tranquil surface makes the half hidden harshness beneath even more audible. anemone tube and human larvae contribute a quite lucid piece that perfectly combines the qualities of both projects - the knock-on effect of anemone tube's flow of sounds melts with the heaviness of human larvae's doomlike industrial. the 92 minute dvd by martin bladh includes his earliest short film 'pig and tomboy' (2005), the epic pentalogy 'cycle' (2006) and the conceptual installation video 'des' (2009) among others. all the films present unvarnished set pieces of the human body subjected to subtly implied violence within claustrophobic spaces, where the camera itself, the voyeuristic eye, is the only free player. the accompanying art catalog includes collages and polaroids, several short essays by bladh as well as an introduction text by carl abrahamsson. dvd format: region free pal. limited edition: 350 copies. packaging: luxurious 6 panel 21 x 15 cm folder, 24-page catalog, printed on matt image paper with dispersion varnish and packaged in a transparent, resealable bag.

Released November 2014 on The Epicurean.
