Notes

Part of Sub Rosa's ongoing series of sound archives, this CD builds on the 3 axes of the European Dada avant-garde, with 3 major artists reading their own texts:
Hans Arp, who was close to Tristan Tzara when he created Dada in Zürich - from a very rare 1961 recording.
Kurt Schwitters, one of the major figures of the German avant-garde, reads his only two recorded Merzpoems, Anna Blume and Sonate in Urlauten a/k/a Ursonate - both recorded in 1932.
Raoul Hausmann, one of the creators of Dada in Berlin - seven pieces (from 1918 to 1947) recorded in 1956/57 by Henri Chopin + two rare documents recorded in 1959 by Bureau.

Tracks 1 to 14 were previously released on Hans Arp - Hans Arp Liest Hans Arp
Tracks 17 to 25 were previously released on Raoul Hausmann - Poèmes Phonétiques Complètes

Including photos, texts and historical introduction (translation in German, French and English).

NB: Track 5 is incorrectly listed as "In Automobilen Reich"
