Von Hausswolff says: “Dear listeners. This is the first track from my new album, Dead Magic! Me, my band and Randall Dunn spent nine days in Copenhagen recording this record. “The great pipe organ you’re hearing is a 20th century instrument located in Marmor Kirken, The Marble Church, Copenhagen.” The Gothenburg-based artists goes on to quote a poem by Swedish writer Walter Ljungquist. It reads: “Take the fate of a human being, a thin pathetic line that contours and encircles an infinite and unknown silence. “It is in this very silence, in an only imagined and unknown centre, that legends are born. Alas! That is why there are no legends in our time. “Our time is a time deprived of silence and secrets; in their absence no legends can grow.”
Von Hausswolff will play at March 10 at Paard, Den Haag.
