”La terre, il se pourrait bien après tout que ce soit une espèce
de merveilleux petit appareil enregistreur, plaçé là par on ne sait qui,
pour capter tous les bruits qui circulent mystérieusement dans l’Univers.”
Pierre Reverdy - ”En vrac” - 1929

”J’entends tous les bruits de la terre grâce à mes oreilles et mes nerfs de cristal
dans lesquels circulent le feu du ciel et celui des volcans.”
Michel Leiris - ”Le point cardinal” - 1927

"Go, go, go! ... Go! go! ..."
John Lee Hooker




"Aleph" (1956-1966) is the unique movie directed by the american artist Wallace Berman (1926-1976).

Involved in the 50s in the "beat artistic scene", Wallace Berman has been called the "father" of assemblage art. He created "Verifax collages", which consist of photocopies of images from magazines and newspapers, mounted onto a flat surface in a collage fashion, mixed with occasional solid areas of acrylic paint.
He is well known for his magazine "Semina" which consisted of photographs, texts, drawings, images and poetry by writers Michael McLure, Charles Bukowski, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Cocteau and other ones.

Originally, the "Aleph" movie is silent, but this version is scored by Mellankeffekt.

with probably some figures (poets, singers ...) of the Beat Generation to identify.
Thanks for response' elements!
