The Carribean Situationist is an exploration of vernacular musics and poetry from Haiti, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbados, taking advantage of two invaluable online resources: Jamaica Musical Passage, with rare examples of 17th century folk music, and Radio Haiti Archives, collecting exceptional shows from the 1970s and 80s. The Carribean Situationist is a personal interpretation of the archipelago's sound world, an aural travelogue encompassing traditional and modern music styles, spoken word, rhythm loops and electronic processing. The title comes from a 1973 anarchist LP named "None Shall Escape ñ Caribbean Situationist versus Trevor Menroe", compiling conversations and informations on Carribean workers' struggles ca. 1966-73.
