ABOUT OSR

label discontinued as of 1/1/2017
but still fulfilling orders thru April 2017


M. Foucault :
"I am no doubt not the only one who writes in order to have no face . do not ask who I am and do not ask me to remain the same : leave it to our bureaucrats and our police to see that our papers are in order . at least spare us their morality when we write"

born in 2007 , re-est. 2011 , when OSR became
a backronym for "Open Session Rock" , meaning
a psychospiritual orientation toward songwriting
and music production temporally open to continual
re-signification , with that openness being its
chief characteristic and primary goal ;
previously incarnated in Brattleboro Vermont ,
now in Brooklyn NY .

R. Desnos :
"it seems to me that beyond Surrealism there is
something very mysterious to be dealt with ,
that beyond automatism there is the intentional ,
that beyond poetry there is the poem , that
beyond poetry received there is poetry imposed ,
that beyond free poetry there is the free poet"




"The Unforgiven" (Russell Edson) :

After a series of indiscretions a man stumbled homeward, thinking, now that I am going down from my misbehavior I am to be forgiven, because how I acted was not the true self, which I am now returning to. And I am not to be blamed for the past, because I’m to be seen as one redeemed in the present...
But when he got to the threshold of his house his house said, go away, I am not at home.
Not at home? A house is always at home; where else can it be? said the man.
I am not at home to you, said his house.

And so the man stumbled away into another series of indiscretions...
