Who wouldn’t have liked to be part of the project?! At the beginning of the 1980s, performance artist Anna Homler created »Breadwoman«, a woman so old that she turned into bread. The mysterious figure was dressed as a farmer’s wife, including a headscarf and a face made of – self made? – bread. She sang in an Asian sounding language, which Los Angeles based Anna Homler had made up during a trip through the desert. The message behind tracks like »Ee Chê« or »Gu She’ Na’ Di« remains just as mysterious as the sparse electronic sounds that her colleague Steve Moshier added to the lyrics. After all, Anna Homler does not intend to answer semantic questions but rather tries to deliver »performative« messages through her somewhat elegiac songs. It’s probably easiest to understand them when listening to their unfamiliar sounds instead of trying to decipher the words. You’ll get the feeling of taking part in an archaic ritual, to which the tribalist electronica add an insisting and slightly eerie aftertaste. In 1985, Anna Homler’s and Steve Moshier’s recordings were merely released on tape. Now RVNG Intl have committed themselves to raising this gem from under a rock by releasing it on vinyl. Despite having added two gloomy ambient-tracks almost the length of the original record, they haven’t changed its original mood: It’s enchanting poetry, way out there.
