Alexander Hacke & Danielle de Picciotto - Perseverantia LP + CD

Ltd. to 500 worldwide. Vinyl-only, with CD bonus of the album included. Their work is unconventional and versatile. The German-American artist couple Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke are internationally known, Danielle as the founder of the Love Parade, Alexander since over 35 years for his work with the seminal Berlin group Einstürzende Neubauten and both together as members of the band Crime & The City Solution. "Perseverantia" means "endurance" or "persistence" and the artist couple, otherwise known for their advent-urous lifetsyle and unusual experiments are obviously concerned with a different theme this time around. Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke have been leading a nomadic life since 2010, with no permanent home and travelling from one city to the next. The album was recorded in the Californian Mojave desert and is mostly instrumental, with a few spokenword lyrics by Danielle de Picciotto. Together with the throat-singing by Alexander Hacke, the purring and squeaking of the hurdy-gurdy and an ether-plucking harp, melancholic violin melodies and the hum and growl of bass and guitar, one is placed in an acoustic world of mysteries, which floats out of the loudspeakers like an epic movie, both disturbing and mesmerizing.
