2008 release. Alga Marghen presents for the first time on CD the classic experimental folk recordings from Anton Bruhin with the same title first issued on LP in 1969. Anton Bruhin conceived some of the most original sonic art musiks, a double of his artistic work as an outsider painter, and with the help of Stefan Wittwer on electric guitar and Cristian Koradi on bass and cello, recorded this masterpiece of far-out sonorities well hidden in the Swiss mountains. Anton Bruhin sings and plays jew's harp (his favorite instrument), ch-phon (an instrument he invented, constructed with a PVC tube with saxophone reed), harmonica, flute, fiddle, percussion, and water. This record, surely one of the most psychedelic, experimental and private to be issued in Europe in the 1960s, should be of great influence for the actual renaissance of experimental folk music. Surely it was an important source of magick for Steven Stapleton, so no surprise to see it mentioned in the mythical list of references that Nurse With Wound included in their first LP. This CD edition also includes five jew's harp instrumental tracks. In the late 1970s, Anton Bruhin was asked to edit a record of folk and ethnic music, documenting the use of jew's harp in Switzerland. Bruhin climbed up the mountains in order to record some of the most obscure, old jew's harp players. Those mysterious sounds were issued in 1979 on a record titled Maultrommel, Mundhermonika, Kamm. This CD includes three solo jew's harp tracks where Anton Bruhin plays themes from the Vom Goldabfischer LP, plus two massive, maximal and resonating duos with W. Gwerder, recorded in 1979 at Radio Schweiz International. Beautiful digipack sleeve with photos and liner notes, also including a folded insert reproducing lyrics, technical notes and a group of ink drawings originally created for the Vom Goldabfischer LP sleeve.
