Cédille (◌̧) comes as a cd. Much like the graphic marker that gave it its name, it adds a hissing twist to what it attaches itself to. In this case some brand of electropop. Or thereabout.  

que la liste

pas mal d'archive

L’inoutil (or The untool) marks the second output by Club Diogène. 


The object is the result of arbitrarily probing a specific site of cultural production: we blindly bulk-bought 50 laserdiscs. Some consistency was to be found among the debris. 


Each disc was given a unique label with a download code and comes in a hand-stamped off-white sleeve. The code can be redeemed through bandcamp and yields 5 new songs.


In the months to come, the original content of your laser disc will be cut, edited and reconfigured into video essays a/o collages that will somehow find their way to you.


Much like every archival endeavour, the processes surrounding L’inoutil (making, purchasing & using it) are fragile, futile and profoundly useless.


Any archived unit, be it a paper document, a magnetised piece of ribbon, an etched plate or a spotify playlist, has an endearingly narrow window during which it can be disclosed. What remains before* or after the unit’s  ‘productive life’ is mere mute matter.  


Your unit is a tactile invitation, a promise and a committment. As such, it can be nudged into speaking.

BOÎTE is a matter of substitution: the imperative 'to' is replaced by an approximative 'of'. So not so much 'in order to dance' but 'in the order of dance'. A coagulation of 5 tunes, BOÎTE is where dance and desire go when the club closes.

In its physical form, BOÎTE comes as a set of 6 postcards.
