Sub Rosa presents a compilation of outsider music from different parts of the world that helps realize the continued connection between contemporary and older musical artists on the fringes of society. The composers on Musics in the Margin live(d) in highly individualistic, self-taught worlds, making their music outside the customary commercial production and distribution channels and with the determination and creative gifts that stem from unmistakable artistic talent. Artists include: Jacques Brodier (b. 1946): a French inventor who collects radio waves and weaves them into blankets of sound that remind us of Tod Dockstader; Galaxia, (b. 1966): the project name of Steve Wallis, a Glagow-based revolutionary socialist who crafts slanted, acoustic protest songs; Anton et Quentin (b. 1971, 1973): two brothers (one who has great difficulty expressing himself, but responds passionately to music) who communicate through lovely, drifting acoustic melody and atypical vocal language; Wesley Willis (1963-2003): mentally-challenged keyboard street performer who has since become a huge cult classic; André Robillard (b. 1932): a visual artist who makes percussion improvisations on iron dustbins; Dr. Konstantin Raudive (1909-1974): famous for his recordings of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP); Daniel Johnston (b. 1961): now-legendary, cult/indie singer-songwriter; McSpeedy (b. 1966): founder of a radiophonic trio and "human jukebox"; Reinilde Tastenoe (b. 1960): a Belgian therapy-based singer/performer; Marcella Dumarey (1937-2006): a psychiatric patient who, for most of her life, wrote songs for Jesus and Mary; Dagboek: a musical project which enables psychotic adolescents to express themselves with various musical instruments; Chantal Robette (b. 1948): a Belgian songwriter who attends the Zonnestraat music therapy workshop; Martha Grunenwaldt (b. 1910): the daughter of a street musician who composes on a violin; and Oscar Haus (b. 1939): a musical therapy attendee who composes with an accordion. Compiled by Belgian association "Art en Marge," the recordings on Musics in the Margin are of several kinds: in some cases less than 100 copies were pressed, and some are exclusive recordings that have never been distributed outside a circle of family and friends. Like the surrealist and expressionist artists, who were amazed by the strangeness and authenticity of work made in asylums, many members of today's music scene get inspiration from such music and feel it comes from another world.
