Label: RUNE GRAMMOFON

Release date: 22/04/2016

Barcode: 7033662021819

Catalog no.: RLP0002181

Item ID: 430098

This piece was written for three choirs, three pairs of noise
musicians and church organ. The room is filled with sound in an
intense, but almost meditative hour, where the voices blend
with the distortion, the noise sometimes taking over, and the
organ eventually hoisting the music to a new level. All texts
are from the Nag Hammadi Library, a collection of 13 ancient books with over 50 texts that were discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. These texts have provided a major re-evaluation of early Christian history. The included DVD offers footage and audio of a live performance of the piece.

Also available: CREPUSCULAR HOUR (2LP+CD+DVD) (LP).
