Michael Pisaro and Graham Lambkin

Graham Lambkin and Michael Pisaro perform together to celebrate the release of their erstwhile disc, _Schwarze Riesenfalter_. About that disc, Ed Howard has written: “They layer and collage their sounds into a cohesive, almost overwhelming sound world in which individual contributions matter far less than the totality. (…) Rich and immersive, this music is thrillingly balanced between restraint and release, between high drama and quietude.” (reddy brown objects)

The May 4th performance at the wulf. will depart from this text:


The twilight stills the lament
Of the cuckoo in the wood.
Deeper bows the wheat,
The red poppy.

A black storm threatens
Above the hilltop.
The ancient trill of the cricket
Dies in the field.

The foliage of the chestnut
Stirs no more.
Your dress rustles
On spiral stairs.

Silently glowing candle
In the darkening chamber;
A silvery hand
made it go out;

Night of no wind, no stars.

(Georg Trakl, trans. Michael Pisaro)
