Leif Elggren – Sleepwalking
C30 Cassette (R&L035)
Edition of 100

Swedish artist Leif Elggren has a monumental list of creative accomplishments in both the visual art world as well as a recording artist.  His first recorded piece, Cu, from 1982 firmly established Elggren as a archivist of his own work using recorded source material and field recording techniques.  For his newest cassette lucidly entitled Sleepwalking, Elggren taped notation of his recent performance which was debuted at the Sleep Disorders exhibition in NYC during the Summer of 2012. Listen in to full report of what happened after the artist’s eyelids have closed and the parallel universe unfolded.
