Thank you kindly for your constant interest in Merzbau! Only today after a random visit here I realized that there have been  more than 13000 visitors to this blog! Merzbau is over [at least for now] but this does not mean that I will bring it down. It will remain online for archival purposes.

There has been a return to the merzposting though. There is a new incarnation of this ongoing ‘effort’ that is called Llamarinth. This is a new journal of the weird and wonderful maintained by me and a very dear person to me, houdinismother. I am sure that Merzbau readers will find many things of interest there and they will not be disappointed.

I would be glad to see you and maybe hear from some of you over at Llamarinth!

changes + erotic art blog

There would probably be some radical changes in Merzbau. Most important one [although not yet finalized] is that there will be no shares anymore [certain special exceptions would probably apply]. I definitely want your opinion on that.

Meanwhile visit a great erotic art blog called @mateurdart surely much above average and highly recommended [found via jahsonic]

Yes dmtls is back! After abandoning thoughts of ‘killing’ Merzbau [Merzbau destruction is declared in dans le labyrinthe de l’Acéphale (see below) first post] it is time to get back here to work after this long absence. Back full of new ideas, curious new records, new books and broadened tastes even further from normal.

Earlier in September dmtls started two other blogs:
dans le labyrinthe de l’Acéphale and
Η κοινωνία του Ακέφαλου [Acéphale society]

Acéphale society is an experiment in Greek language [currently hosting only a reworked and rather lengthy post on Gilles Berquet] while dans le labyrinthe de l’Acéphale is another project in English concerning more special interests. It is probable for the later to be absorbed in Merzbau.

Thank you all for your interest and love.

No blogging for quite some time. University exams and almost unbearable summer heat prevented all activity. Merzbau officially now slips into summer hiatus. Back in full by Fall with some interesting collaborations. There will be a couple of more posts in a about a weeks time mostly concerning shares to last you through summer.

Next Saturday [July 5th] I am leaving for a trip abroad. Milan, Paris, London [1 day stop] and Venice. Most time will be spend in Paris [about a week]. Two dear friends living there provided me with invaluable info [thank you so much losfeld and continuo]. If you have anything related to these towns, places to visit, record stores, galleries, museums, exhibitions, book stores and so on, you feel like sharing, please drop me a line. Keep in mind though that I have been already more than once in London and Venice and only something really special or a current event will be of interest concerning them. Paris and Milan are Tabula Rasa so anything is more than welcome.

A pile of new arrivals at Merzbau evolving place, blessed are the trades! Moorman’s box set [at last!], two Gandera tapes, two Comelade tapes, one cassette tribute to Crowley, three Coil, Berrocal, four Silvester Anfang, about ten Graveyards and Graveyards-related releases, Meads Of Asphodel, Joe Jones, Michel Chion, Teiji Ito, Daniel Kientzy, Pierre Henry, Gurdjieff’s Harmonic Development and more.

A decent tape deck now obtained, up and running, making dmtls able of enjoying cassette obscurities.

Reading Breton, Petropoulos and Bataille.

Tulse Luper suitcases on Greek cable TV!

All in all, everything is ok with Merzbau, there was only too little time and not the right mood for much blogging, so don’t worry, just in case you did.
