Sounds Of A Tired City #69: Koenraad Ecker

February 21, 2018

Koenraad Ecker‘s new solo record ‘A Biology of Shadows’ will be released on Friday (23 February), also marking the birth of his new label In Aulis. With the new album, Ecker dissects new sonic horizons and traverses into a more conceptual direction, where poetry, acoustic instrumentation and sound art converge. To match the anatomy of this extremely rich material, he created a guest mix featuring the likes of Morton Feldman, Jana Winderen, Iannis Xenakis + some exclusive unreleased material of his own.

 

the undergrowth is restless
the seer has read the entrails of the lie :
one, five, ten, seventeen –
the sequence will unfold

precarious roots will twine upwards
swirling, sizzling, unwavering
stifling stone-deaf walls into crystalline dust

transforming cold symbols into mutual aid
as the slanted orange rain bows to the inevitable :
the empire is tired
its armour weak
