Carl Cryplant's Flower Music Vol 1


Carl Cryplant's Flower Music Vol 1


Carl Cryplant's music production and song lyrics circumscribe a festive space and time outside of the ordinary but within 44'44". It is the utmost example of an oeuvre made by just two turntables and a microphone, some synths and a cassette player, that despoils any Innocence and Beauty.

Today's particular Podcast - bordered with flowers and punctuated by birdsong - had a powerful hold on the medieval French imagination of great kindsmen like Gilles de Rais. The polyvalent metaphors of the included tracks lend themselves to very different and sometimes conflicting rhetorical and artistic ends. Carl Cryplant's background in green imagery of warmth, growth, and renewal encourages numerous re-uses of the ritualistic music performance, both sincere and ironic, embracing and distancing.

For medieval wizards, Carl Cryplant's podcasts are a perfect vehicle for representing a desire for renewal and fertility of all kinds - social, intellectual, artistic and sexual. The music and song lyrics celebrate the florescence of nudity, landscape, love, and poetry at the same time as they recognize a subtext of defloration, involving deflowered women and the transitory flower.

D.A.F. de Sade, Prison de la Bastille, 24 june 1786.
