Other Minds Records:

"Other Minds Records is pleased to announce de revolutionibus: sound homage to Copernicus, a new limited edition LP release from legendary text-sound poet Enzo Minarelli.

Minarelli compares the revolution of sound poetry to the revolution that Copernicus brought about with his discovery of the heliocentric nature of the solar system. Just like Copernicus put the sun at the center of the solar system, sound poets centered the human voice—and thus the sensuous nature of a text—over traditional systems of syntax.

Throughout de revolutionibus, the literal definitions of the words are stripped through repetition and minimalist processes, and layers of varying fidelity of the vocal recording obscure any intelligibility even further. Minarelli deftly combines his voice with found sound, synthesizer, and drum machine accompaniment, vacillating between something like noise assemblage and mutant hip hop.

de revolutionibus is at once a continuation and expansion of the vast corpus that the artist has built over his decades-long career. Elements of glitch music, pulsing drums, and grooving low frequencies are paired with more traditional elements of phonetic poetry creating an extraterrestrial hybrid , part avant-pop and part maximalist Dada treatise. "
