I hope this finds you well and healthy and happy.
In collaboration with Highbrow Lowlife, we have just released two new albums: Vanessa Sinclair & Carl Abrahamsson – "Switching" and "Mirrors."
“In 2016, American poet Vanessa Sinclair and Swedish musician Carl Abrahamsson travelled in Portugal, recording Sinclair’s cut-ups and poems along timeless roads, breathtaking nature and majestic architectural structures. These recordings were then integrated in music by Abrahamsson. The pieces, as well as the totality, evoke not only geographical places the couple visited, but also states of mind and emotion. In a loose, free form and seemingly random manner, “Switching” is an album that penetrates the walls of expectations and keeps on exploring inside the listener’s mind. Provided he or she is willing, of course…”
The albums are available on Bandcamp if you want to listen and/or buy digitally:
We have also made a collector's edition of only eight boxes, containing two CDs, five photographs, two prints, one collage, a unique text plus info. We sold two copies immediately upon release yesterday, so there are only six left!
We also released Vanessa's excellent collaboration with Douglas Lucas – "Sound 23" – on Bandcamp yesterday:
The physical release of this album can be found here:
In case you wonder, yes, all of these will also be available on Spotify and iTunes etc, but in a couple of weeks' time.
While you're at it, please also take a look at all the Highbrow Lowlife collaborations. There are many lovely things in there!
It feels like we're always finding new things in the Trapart storage, which is magical and nice. When we recently cleaned, we found copies of the hardbound edition of Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Sacred Intent – Conversations with Carl Abrahamsson 1986-2019. The time of the release of the book was very intense, with Genesis dying and the Corona virus pandemic outbreak, so I lost track of what we actually had, and just assumed it was sold out. But… There are ten hardbound copies left and they're available HERE!
How about some magico-anthropological candies...?

The Fenris Wolf 5 e-book

I’m also making one copy of the standard and one copy of the deluxe edition of Ernst Jünger’s ultra-rare Visit To Godenholm (Edda, 2015, illustrated by Fredrik Söderberg) available. But only as an exclusive offer for the Trapartisans via this newsletter. If you are interested in buying either of these, please e-mail me at: email@example.com The standard edition is 850:- SEK including postage, and the deluxe edition is 2000:- SEK including postage (registered mail). First come, first served! (Pictured in the photo is the deluxe box with a copy of the book and rice paper print portrait of Jünger by Fredrik Söderberg.)
Lars Sundestrand’s photographs of Genesis P-Orridge, Joe Strummer, Paul Weller, Ian Curtis and an unknown mummy have been very popular, and only a few copies remain of each. Please don’t miss out! Please also note that the photo “Ooooh Gen” comes with a very special gift from the Trapart archives.
In terms of art prints, we are running low on the unique and delightful prints by Steffi Grant, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and Tom Benson. Take a look here, and make sure to get the stuff you don’t already have:
Would you rather watch a great film? Well, here’s where to go for that:
And please visit my daughter Sofia's Etsy shop. She's making wonderful little paintings, and they're selling really well.
Thank You for your attention and support! Stay safe, healthy and sane!
