Harold Schellinx (Maastricht, the Netherlands) is an artist, writer, improvisor and creator of unusual and original musics. As a member of The Young Lions and several other post-punk bands in the Amsterdam of the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was among the initiating forces of the dutch ‘Ultra’ movement (the purely dutch version of what has become known as ‘post-punk experimental pop music’).
He was co-founder, editor and London correspondent of the dutch modern music magazine ‘Vinyl’, while pursuing (in Holland, Belgium and the UK) a range of widely acclaimed musical projects. These include ‘Commuters’ – a collaboration with German singer Dagmar Krause (Slapp Happy/Henry? Cow), ‘Signs & Symptoms’ – with Peter Mertens, and a series of ‘pop fictions’ (Bogdan Wlosik, Agonie Ajournée …) – written and produced together with Ronald Heiloo.
Since 2000 his musical work growingly has become based on his ’sonic diary’, an audio cassette archive of monophonic recordings made of his (and others’) everyday activities, always with a lapel microphone and a dictaphone walkman. The ’sonic diary’ covers a period of over 30 years.
