Dracula Never Ends (2017)

Electronic drone for 7 speakers at David Risley Gallery.

Dracula Never Ends.

Tobias R Kirstein live drone performance celebrating the cassette release of Tony Conrad / Tobias R. Kirstein ‘Live at Mayhem March 1. 2012’ on Insula Music

5 years ago and so many things have happened.
5 years ago I played a duo concert with Tony Conrad at Mayhem. We spent the afternoon together, talking and trying out stuff.
Mostly just talking. He had a sore shoulder which meant we should take it slow from the beginning.

          The recording of the concert was on the shelf for some years until Johs Lund made a mix and convinced me to release it. The tape was ready for a while. Andreas Korsgaard made a great cover. Insula Records was happy to put it out. Thank you!

Life and death happened.
Red and golden colors.
Such a little box of plastic and magnetic tape means so much.
All things considered, I think it is appropriate to celebrate the release instead of hanging around and getting all sentimental.

No talking.

A big celebratory drone in an art space suits the participants and the sound well.

David Risley Gallery, the best gallery in town, was kind enough to open their doors.
So here we are.
