KOBA, initially hunting back - name borrowed from one of the titles of the double CD of Simha Arom containing songs and music of the pygmies known as AKA, is the name of the pygmy guide who led in 1991 the 3 musicians of the trio AKA Moon, the clarinettist composer Antoine Prawerman and Baudouin de Jaer in the Central African forest to meet extraordinary Aka pygmy musicians. For de Jaer the name Koba symbolized, at the crossroads between metric structures calculated directed or a place with the innate escaped, the attempt of a catch, with the results sound sometimes alive or unsuccessful, of the way which we would re-connect, step by step, in the heart of our inner rhythmic forest.

The Heavenly Ladder - Analyse des Oeuvres de Adolf Wölfli
(CD + BOOK)

Label: Sub Rosa
Catalog Number: SR312
Release date: April 2011
Performed by: Baudouin de Jaer

In 2010, at the request of Art & Marges Museum, Baudouin de Jaer finds the key to decrypting music hidden in 5000 of the 25,000 drawings by the Swiss artist Adolf Wölfli. On this occasion the Belgian label SUB ROSA releases the CD The Heavenly Ladder. Self-taught in both music and drawing, Wölfli composes steps that he transcribes on 6-line staves. At the end of the score he goes back to the same litters noting the rest of the walk between the notes composed during the first passage, distinguishing them by the tails of the notes drawn in the opposite direction of the first, all developing a personal minimalist mixture and new for the time. Wölfli is a precursor in the art of collage using visual materials cut from magazines. He was interned at the Waldau Hospital in Bern in 1900 and died there in 1930.
