A workshop for disabled people, ‚mostly blind people or people with eyesight disfunction took part in these workshops, connected with the Activity Therapy Workshop associated with Society for help given to the Deaf Blind’, it reads on the cover. The workshop was an idea of Krysztof Topolski, also known as Arszyn. That perhaps helps to know when listening to the results – spread out over twenty-four minutes. Lots of improvised sounds from acoustic objects being rambled about, but even more dealing with voice based material, singing together, chanting, speaking. The music is all very loosely organized as you can imagine – assuming none of the participants had much experience in creating this kind of music. As I have been involved with workshops every now and then myself, I thought this was all pretty interesting, but I have my doubts as to who will actually want to hear all of this, other then perhaps the participants of the workshop. But who knows, this might appeal to those who like art-brut and sound poetry? (FdW)
