When recording artists Hans Joachim Roedelius, Tim Story and Dwight Ashley came
together at Tim’s Ohio studio to make recordings, both the technique of composing and
the finished product echoed the character of this emblematic phrase – at once, both
comical and mystical.
The 10 aural collages that resulted from their recording session reflect what Surrealist
Nicolas Calas characterized as “the unconscious reality in the personality of the group,”
derived from a state Max Ernst wryly dubbed “mental contagion.”
Commenting on the effects of this, Ashley remarks: “It’s not uncommon for people to hear
an element in the recordings and think ‘oh, that’s a classic Story riff,’ when in fact, Ach
or I actually contributed that bit.”
So, what do you get when you combine the melodious musings of Hans Joachim Roedelius,
the nuanced phrasings of Tim Story and the sonic colorations of Dwight Ashley? You get
the sonic colorations of Roedelius, the melodious musings of Story, and the nuanced
phrasing of Ashley. In short, you get a distinctly different fourth entity that emerges from
the group, rather than the individual. From the rhythm-fueled, epic “squiggle” to the
brief, wonderfully abstract title track, Errata echoes the Surrealist credo that “poetry
must be made by all, and not by one.”
