October marks the release of Jimmy Robert's newly produced artist record Call and Response. It will be launched on October 25 with a listening event introduced by Jimmy Robert, curator Nadja Quante (Künstlerhaus Bremen), and artist record label operator Volker Zander (Apparent Extent) at After in Berlin. Published by Künstlerhaus Bremen and Nadja Quante, the artist record was conceived following the exhibition la musique dans la chambre which took place at Künstlerhaus Bremen from February to April 2022. It extends the exhibition, which placed a focus on sound in Robert's work. How can Robert's performances be approached via sound and how can the auditory level be used as an access to the performances beyond photo documentation and reenactment? Call and Response brings together eleven sound pieces created in the context of Jimmy Robert's performances and exhibitions. They were produced in collaboration with sound artist and DJ Ain Bailey, choreographer Jane Ellison, and artists Rosa Barba and Emma Hedditch, among others. The record is complemented by a booklet with an introduction by Nadja Quante and an essay by Mason Leaver-Yap and was beautifully designed by the London studio Wolfe Hall.
