Séance Vocibus Avium

Dec 20 2008

This is kind of a long way from what we usually post. But we are big Justus Köhncke fans so we couldn’t resist this and since it’s Christmas time this could be a great gift for someone in your family.

Wolfgang Müller, founding member of the pioneering German art and music group Die Tödliche Doris (1981-1987), enlisted a long list of friends to recreate the calls of eleven extinct bird species. Their combined, exquisitely detailed efforts are now published on 7″ and cd, both with a 40 page book, by Swedish label Fang Bomb.

Besides Wolfgang Müller, the featured recreationist artists on this release are Justus Köhncke, Annette Humpe (Ich+Ich, Ideal, Neonbabies), Françoise Cactus & Brezel Göring (aka Stereo Total), Nicholas Bussmann (Kapital Band 1), Khan, Namosh, Frieder Butzmann, Max Müller, Hartmut Andryczuk, Frederik Schikowski and Icelandic actress Kristbjörg Kjeld.”
