'Idioticon' by Kris Verdonck, words by Peter Wullen.

'Idioticon', videopoem by Kris J. Y. Verdonck. The soundtrack is 'Koladé Spirit' by David Toop, with kind permission. 'Koladé Spirit' is a track from 'Mondo Black Chamber', the new David Toop compilation album on Sub Rosa. The original was included on 'Konstantin Raudive - The Voices of the Dead'. A Raudive celebration including unpublished material by Scanner, Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky/That subliminal kid, Calla, Lee Ranaldo (of Sonic Youth), Ensemble, Ramdom Inc., David Toop, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Brett Dean. They have all composed an exclusive piece of music based on the Raudive material. It goes from a close examination of the material itself (CM Von Hausswolff, Lee Ranaldo) to a more evocative mood (Calla, Scanner, dj Spooky). The last piece, for viola solo, is a global homage to all the explorators of the unknown.
