The box set, which includes a remix album featuring contributions from Brian Eno, Jim Jarmusch, Laraaji and more.

Between 2019 and 2021, Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith collaborated on the creation of “The Perfect Vision”: a triptych of albums which took their inspiration from the writings of three emblematic French poets: Antonin Artaud, Arthur Rimbaud and René Daumal. Central to the work was the poets’ necessity to travel to different lands to acquire a new vision and perspective on themselves and their art. Recorded in the Sierra Tarahumara of Mexico (The Peyote Dance), the Abyssinian valley of Ethiopia (Mummer Love), and the Himalayan Summit of India (Peradam) respectively, each album retraces the poets’ footsteps, channelled through on-location recorded soundscapes, in search of hidden, earthy sounds that hold embedded existence, with Patti Smith revisiting the poets’ words that have been inspired by the landscapes. The result is a sound and visual montage that traverses the works of Rimbaud, Artaud and Daumal in their voyage to elsewhere.

Now, the three albums of “The Perfect Vision” are released as a deluxe box set that includes a special 7-track remix album featuring a stellar cast of contributors that includes the likes of Brian Eno, Jim Jarmusch, Laraaji and more. The box set also includes a book which features an interview with Patti Smith and Stephan Crasneanscki of Soundwalk Collective along with photos and drawings. Also included is a A4 print signed by Patti.
