There’s never been a better time to pay a (re)visit to Dada. As Dada’s shadow has loomed across most contemporary art created over the subsequent century, we often reduce the movement to style: they calibrated our ability to absorb “weirdness.” While that’s true in its way, it might be instructive in these increasingly troubled times to consider what led Dada to (anti-) coalesce, to find meaning within apparent chaos or non-hierarchical intuition.

The attendant horrors of combat in the first World War had weakened this tribe’s faith in humanity, and how can you place your trust in the institutions, traditions, courtesies and art forms of cultures capable of such hostility toward one another? It was a time to begin anew.


released April 1, 2020

This tape was recorded and performed in honor of Tristan Tzara's 1918 Dada Manifesto on the centennial of its publication, March 24, 2018. Recorded on one stereo track with no overdubs, performed solo. Bad Juju is the title of Moscovich's fiction thesis at NYU, the title story of which is structured as a 21st century version of Gogol's Dead Souls.

Produced/mastered by Scott Scholz at Tymbal Tapes headquarters.

David Moscovich is the Romanian-American author of You Are Make Very Important Bathtime (JEF Books, 2013) and LIFE+70 [Redacted], a print version of the single most expensive literary e-book ever hacked (Lit Fest Press, 2016). He runs Louffa Press, a micro-press dedicated to printing innovative fiction in collectible, handprinted chapbooks and artist books.
