A 12" vinyl record of musical compositions from interviews with influential conceptual artists — Martha Rosler, Ed Ruscha, Andrea Fraser, Sol LeWitt, Shilpa Gupta, Art and Language, Lawrence Weiner, and Yvonne Rainer. Selected statements were transformed into musical compositions, the audio material (field recordings) was turned into songs. Speech fragments, syllables and consonants were processed into rhythmic patterns, while slogans, statements and text passages were sampled into sprechgesang. This is a homage to all the artists involved. Deconceptual Voicings suggests a global polyphony of positions and sounds. Good ideas should be amplified. The project is based on an idea by Stefan Römer and Marc Matter (concept and composition), assisted by Lizzie Davis (sound engineering) and Dirk Lebahn (graphic design). The sampled interviews with the artists primarily recorded for the film essay Conceptual Paradise (2006) by Stefan Römer.
