Franz Kirmann - Elysian Park LP

$24.00 Regular Price

  • Franz Kirmann (of piano interrupted fame) returns with his follow up to the epic 'Meridians', his second for Denovali and his third overall. 

     

    The album was born from ‘Hyper Trophies’, a 2012 installation project by Berlin art studio Zeitguised  that Kirmann was commissioned to soundtrack. Both the visual and sonic aesthetic of that project were instrumental in defining the artistic and sonic approach to Elysian Park. ‘Hyper Trophies’ was a crossover art/fashion project and consisted of three endless video loops presented in a vertical format and showing unemotional and deadpan female models floating amongst nocturnal backdrops. That static verticality and the feeling of loneliness are very present in the 14 compositions that form ‘Elysian Park’. The music fades in and out, creeps up on you and disappears; The tracks bear no traditional structures, seem to lead nowhere and have no obvious melodies, riffs or no beats to hang on to. There is a deep sense of space and emptiness surrounding the music forcing the listener’s attention to focus on the physicality of the sound rather than any melodic, harmonic or rhythmical content.
