Notes & Reviews:

Between 1980 and 1997, artists presented a panoply of exhibitions, installations, performances and concerts, and engaged in lively debate on art theory at Het Apollohuis in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Under the direction of founders Paul and Hélène Panhuysen, the building became an important center for an avant-garde that bridged the visual arts and music. Since 2009, the archives of Het Apollohuis have been located at ZKM in Karlsruhe, where scholars are examining, documenting and preserving this valuable store of sound, text and pictorial materials. This CD presents excerpts from previously unpublished concert and performance recordings of important artists who appeared during the lifespan of Het Apollohuis.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
... The pieces sound clear and vibrant, and Wergo completes the release with a fabulous 72-page booklet containing artist bios and photos from the art space.
