"An acoustic homage to the artist, poet and theorist Oswald Wiener from his friends, companions and fans. The inspiration for the different tracks was Wiener's aesthetic of failure in the tradition of the Wiener Gruppe (The Vienna Group) and of his selten gehörte Musik (rarely heard music) records with Gerhard Rühm and Dieter Roth. 'Together we have attempted an aesthetic of failure, an aesthetic of incompetence. And this is a very painful aesthetic, an aesthetic of embarrassment, disgrace and limitation. But because the main thing is to seize and to emotionally affect the listener, there is of course this disgrace and embarrassment as a kind of emotion and as a play with ones own weakness...' With original tracks from: Thomas Brinkmann & Marcus Schmickler, Valie Export & Ingrid Wiener, Nihilist Spasm Band, Mouse on Mars, Ira G. Wool, Wolfgang Müller (Die tödliche Doris), Gerhard Rühm, Hubert Fichte, Mario Subassis, Michel Würthle, Rolf Graf, Franz Josef Czernin, Attersee, Rosa Pock, H. C. Artmann."
