Deliquium in C features Steven Warwick, Mark Davies, Alessio Capovilla and the late Steve Moshier.
American performance and improv artist Anna Homler is best known for her early work as “Breadwoman,” originally released in the mid-80ties. Ever since, Homler has played a myriad of live gigs, released a steady stream of music—and was part of numerous collaborations. With Deliquium in C, Präsens Editionen now proudly presents four tracks originating from Homler’s collaborations, on which she sounds gentle and pervasive, maternal and childlike, enigmatic and familiar, playful and severe, squeaking and humming.
For Deliquium in C, Homler worked together with four extraordinary artists moving in the domain of electronic music in its broadest sense: Gang of Ducks’ Alessio Capovilla, Mark Davies alias The Pylon King (who, together with Homler, forms the duo Voices of Kwahn), PAN-affiliate Steven Warwick aka Heatsick, and the late Steve Moshier, who produced the original Breadwoman tape. These collaborations emphasize once more just how versatile Homler is—as a singer and as a master of her toys.
The LP comes with linear notes (interviews with Anna Homler and her collaborators) on the inner sleeve. Graphic design by Dorothee Dähler.
Delirium in C is available as a vinyl LP and digitally, but also as a bundle including the LP and a fanzine published by Gang Of Ducks featuring photos of Homler’s toys and instruments.
Legendary performance artist and musician Anna Homler, best known for her early work as Breadwoman, will release a new collaborative EP on Präsens Editionen.
Deliquium in C features PAN affiliate Steven Warwick (aka Heatsick), ambient dub techno producer Mark Davies (aka The Pylon King) who, together with Homler, makes up the experimental duo Voices of Kwahn, Gang Of Ducks’ Alessio Capovilla and the late Steve Moshier, who produced the original Breadwoman tape.

Featuring a different artist on each side.
On the ‘line’ side of FTS003 we hear the meeting of three veteran improvisors – Anna Homler (Breadwoman/Pharmacia Poetica), Adrian Northover (Remote Viewers) and Dave Tucker (The Fall). Born from the fertile creative friction of the London Improvisers Orchestra, they incantate together to deliver a clutch of winding, curious, mesmeric compositions.
On the ‘circle’ side we present a recording from Pierre Bastien – an artist of startling singularity and endless, joyful creativity. Recorded at Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona with Catalonian group Cabo San Roque, Pierre takes the helm of their monumental mechanical sound sculpture – the Orquestra Mecànica de la França Xica – and guides the vast array of cogs and pistons through three movements. The orchestra was made up of thirty or forty machines, all linked to Pierre’s casio keyboard.
From Radio-On Berlin, listen to Don Campau’s No Pigeonholes and his special feature on Anna Homler.
“Anna is one of my favorites. Strangely, I originally found about her from Harald Ziegler in Koln and then found the CD at Gelbe Muisik in Berlin 1996. Later, she and I became friends…a wonderful person and we will finally meet in a few days in Berkeley.”
