Kostas Kefalianos – Der Schimmel Tape
“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.
This project was mixed and mastered by Panos Alexiadis, whom the artist wishes to thank for the generous lending of his magical services.
