NEMO 036
year: 2012

project coordinator:Rinus Van Alebeek
mastering: Rinus Van Alebeek
artwork:Rinus Van Alebeek

All songs are an interpretation of the theme "Domestic". The finished project was not distributed on CDRs as usual, but on audio cassettes which were individually designed by Rinus. Project description, from the original invitation:

see this theme also as an adjective, so as a point of departure
because it can refer to things/objects/situations/memories/ related to your life in and around your house
but also used as in
inland, like domestic flights

both possibilities are welcome"

Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing? I originally had plans to construct a complex sequence of comparisons between the various houses I've lived in over the years and what made them homes (or perhaps crucially didn't - places I never really settled etc) but then time drifted as it does and with the deadline looming, I used one of the tracks from my intended blues album as the background for a tour of our current home - very Viv Stanshall - how is a home more than the sum of our accumulated clutter and possessions? All the objects in some way contribute to a collected memory...or maybe I should restrain the urge to (over) explain...shut up and play the guitar...

  An evocative and imaginative track. How do you do it so consistently DCO?

  thanks, Nick - no idea what I'd do without CT as an oulet!

  David's track is the perfect opener for domestic.Aguide that shows us around his house.His guitar playing translates colors and moods. It reminded me of seventies open air copncerts with clouds of marihuana perfume above the heads. There is something of Captian Beefheart's Moonbeams and Bluejeans in it.
