Dreams with Yumi Zouma

 

Under the falling Alps, a drapery system

A1 – char 1 (drape/curtains) – shaken, caving from the weight of dusty constellations
B2 – char 2 (wax) – liquefying, a starry drool, down pillars, secrets
A3 – char 1 (drape/curtains) – being a ghost of the Alps, thrown back by the pull on a cord
B4 – char 2 (wax) – cooling into crystallized crags, hardened froth and rivers of ash
B5 – char 2 (wax) – casting forms for bells, or molds for vases, or visages
C6 – char 3 (wind) – pulling pressure from one quadrant to the next, across a valley
B7 – char 2 (wax) – clinging under a nail, after scraping a pillar in the dark
C8 – char 3 (wind) – gently deteriorating, glancing other passings in the halls of the heart
C9 – char 3 (wind) – rustling a cloth back from the dead, and making a vein dance
A10 – char 1 (drape/curtains) – being peeked through, parted slightly and looked past
C11 – char 3 (wind) – slamming a door as it exits, after entering through a window
A12 – char 1 (drape/curtains) – being drawn open
A13 – char 1 (drape/curtains) – being drawn closed

Yumi Zouma is New Zealand’s Christie Simpson, Sam Perry, Charlie Ryder, and Josh Burgess. It is a true honor to collaborate with the Yumis, who usher us down ‘Grands Boulevards’ to the following news. Dreams is leaping to the physical world June 15th, 2018, thanks to our friends at Cascine. The double LP compilation and 20-page gatebook book are up for pre-order at Bandcamp and through the label’s site. Immense gratitude to every artist who’s dreamed with us since the start of this project, which will continue.
