Who’s your DADA

nipped1

On October 5, 2004, Dig Up The Roots featured a program of DADA, Futurist, and Surrealist recordings from Tristan Tzara, Kurt Schwitters, Marcel Duchamp, and many others.. Love them or hate them, these artistic mavericks and malcontents of the early Twentieth century blew apart the traditional worlds of artist and audience, creating a foundation for generations of freaks and weirdos who followed to destroy rational thought in their own ways. It may be a stretch to call some of these recordings music… but that’s why radio dials spin. Interviews, Noise machines AKA Intonomuri , Sound poetry and word bending, dissonant neo classical music. This was a very enjoyable show to do and stretched the definitions of Roots music.

The show ended with Talking Heads I Zimbra, which is a Hugo Ball poem, but this is not included on the recording. However, as a bonus and just when you thought the world was getting safe again for weirdos, there is this to show you how weird the main stream can be: Marie Osmond reading DADA poetry…
