Notes

This art box set is limited to one copy and encloses the whole photographic exhibition "Darkening Ligne Claire" by Christophe Szpajdel that was curated by Archaeological Records (on December 2, 2018) and organized by Dio Drone in Florence (IT) at La Cité art gallery.

This album by Liles / Maniac (Andrew Liles from Current 93 and Nurse With Wound plus ex-Mayhem's singer Sven Erik Kristensen also known as "Maniac") was originally meant to be just a drone soundtrack for the exhibition, but it eventually ended up becoming the core of the curatorial project.

As stated in the inlay:

"We delved into Christophe Szpajdel’s photographic archive (he is both a logo designer and a forest engineer). 



We selected a series of images that could evoke these notions, notions of “DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE”.


We chose and printed – in a 24 cm x 30 cm format – fourteen shots in order to build seven diptychs.
We then named the art, borrowing the titles from Christophe Szpajdel’s past creations

I EMPEROR
II ENTHRONED
III FLAGELLUM DEI
IIII SLAUGHTER MESSIAH
IIIII SOULBURN
IIIIII WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM
IIIIIII NOCTUARY

The selected photographs inspired Andrew Liles and Sven Fuzz Kristiansen (aka Maniac) to create music.
To blur sound, to stretch and shrink time.

Andrew Liles manifested the “DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” concept by manipulating Maniac’s narration of the titles above.
Using only the sound of Maniac’s voice through various digital and analogue processes, seven tracks, each seven minutes long, were created.


Christophe Szpajdel drew a logo for the duo - Liles/Maniac.

Each track was lathe cut on a single sided transparent vinyl 10” leaving the blank side of the disc on which to engrave the logo.

“DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” was born.

“DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” is a collective and collection of ideas manifest in a succinct yet ambiguous work of multi-media art.

(...)

Five copies of the “DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE” box have been produced.
One for Christophe Spzpajdel: the Designer, one for Andrew Liles: the Composer, one for Sven Fuzz Kristiansen: the Singer, one for Archaeological Records: the Curator.
One for sale.


This box is not a catalogue of the exhibition but the exhibition itself. 

This box is “DARKENING LIGNE CLAIRE”.
"
This box is one album made of seven single sided 10" records.
