Amlehn/Fripp/Jeanrenaud: Saudade



From 2008-2012, I worked on an album project with guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson), and cellist Joan Jeanrenaud (Kronos Quartet). The project was to consist of a number of soundscapes with spoken word by myself. I wrote several texts which Joan responded to musically along with Robert's soundscapes. In the end, I decided the works functioned better as instrumentals without my voice.

The cover art for the album has been provided by artist Gerhard Richter.
