TENDE RLOIN IS LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP CREATING THE FIRST-EVER POETRY CHAPBOOK ON VINYL. HELP MAKE TENDE RLOIN A PRINT PRESS THAT BRINGS UNIQUE PROJECTS TO YOU.
WHAT IS PSYCHIC PRIVATES?
Like taking a shit and covering it up with perfume, Psychic Privates is a sui-southern freak show, self-obsessed and sexy—a terrible, flirtatious audiotext. These sound poems exacerbate excess, bamboozle gender, and sister the disaster of bodies, seducing via repulsion, erecting atrocities from beauty, and making coprophilic love with all-too-human terrors and embarrassments. Laughing like mental patients, these sound poems (massive heart attacks) will rub your nose in the gorgeous garbage of their own language, campily ever after.
Psychic Privates is a book.
Psychic Privates is a musical duo.
Psychic Privates is a record.
Psychic Privates is an expansive multimedia sound/poem/art project.
Psychic Privates is a feeling.
Psychic Privates is a way of life.
Anchored by Kim Vodicka’s gorgeously profane lyrical meanderings and blanketed in Randy Faucheux’s sonic swirls and swishes, the end result is an all-encompassing experience designed to leave the listener feeling somewhere between post-coital and post-human.
Kim Vodicka is the author of Aesthesia Balderdash (Trembling Pillow Press, 2012). A freelance writer and teacher by day, she moonlights as the spokesbitch of a degeneration. Her poems, art, and other projects have appeared in or are forthcoming from Spork, RealPoetik, Epiphany, Industrial Lunch, Smoking Glue Gun, Paper Darts, The Volta, Queen Mob’s Teahouse, Makeout Creek, Luna Luna Magazine, The Electric Gurlesque, Best American Experimental Writing (BAX) 2015, and many others. Her Psychic Privates manuscript was a 2015 Tarpaulin Sky Book Prize Finalist.
Randy Faucheux is merely a conglomeration of vibrating frequencies like the rest of us. When he’s not working his day job building things with his bare hands like a total bad-ass, he’s making music and sound art with Kim Vodicka and/or various friends around the country. In addition to Psychic Privates, his other musical projects and collaborations have included Wilderness Pangs, Raven & Simone, and Rusty Beaumont. He also sometimes writes about music and frequently makes useless, unsuccessful, and/or unpopular memes.
BUT SERIOUSLY, WHAT ARE YOU MAKING?
The Psychic Privates EP will include: three sound poems pressed on 7-inch vinyl, packaged in a custom cardboard jacket, complete with a handmade booklet of poetry that will serve as ‘liner notes’, featuring full-color cover art.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
The costs from this project will fund the pressing of the vinyl and the printing of the handmade "liner notes" poetry booklet. The first print run will include a limited edition of 100 copies, and the money generated will fund future hybrid book projects for TENDE RLOIN Press. We'll have an open reading period once a year. And don't worry, our monthly journal isn't going anywhere.
Our itemized list of expenses for this project are as follows:
-Mastering for vinyl
-Cutting of lacquers
-Color printing for booklet cover
-B&W printing for booklet interior
-Book binding tools (string, bone folders, awls, etc.)
-Polypropylene outer sleeves
-Cost of shipping
* Any money we raise beyond what we need to complete this project will go towards funding future projects
HOW CAN YOU GET A COPY?
Pledge $35 or more and reserve a copy ahead of time. Books will also be available for purchase from our website. Even better, buy one from Kim Vodicka yourself when she goes on tour.
WHO IS TENDE LOIN?
TENDE RLOIN is an online gallery that features 5-10 poems per month by a single author, including an interview and sound portion.
After 46 issues we're ready to tackle this new, ambitious project. Keeping with the spirit of our journal, we want to bring projects that expand the boundaries of poetry and the page, starting with the Psychic Privates EP.
Risks and challenges
After almost five years of bringing you your monthly dose of TENDE RLON and the publication of our first self-funded chapbook by Will Burke, we are ready to tackle a bigger project and feel confident about our timeline and budget. While unforeseen printing delays may arise, the editors of TENDE RLOIN are committed to bringing this project to life.
