“Der Schimmel” lays out a hermetic and gem-like study in voice, tape and electronics across two side long compositions. Poem-fragments mold and gather into a sonorous mesh. The compositions echo in organic repetition while some integral part of its inferred world refrains from emerging in full. Recorded as the artist was adjusting to a recent move to a new country, and learning a new language. Der Schimmel, exhibits the amplifying fruits of immersion; a stage precariously revealed in it’s pull between the familiarity of home and the grafting of new roots.
Recorded in Berlin, 2019.
Mastered by Alexiadis Panos.
