A Trio of Anniversaries
This week in Tambourhinoceros HQ we are celebrating the anniversaries of three dear records.
First is Coral Carol, the 2012 debut album from PRE-Be-UN, Nicolai Koch's (Oh No Ono, Choir of Young Believers) solo project. Released initially on a run of 50 casettes, Coral Carol now lives on digitally and remains one of the most amazing soundscapes we have ever heard.
Released on the same day in 2012 was CTM's debut EP Variations. Also a member of Choir of Young Believers, Chimes & Bells, and many, many more groups, the prolific wonder woman Cæcilie Trier showed us the beauty of her personal musical world in her debut solo release.
And finally, released this week in 2016, is Efterklang's monumental opera Leaves - The Colour of Falling, written in collaboration with award winning compser Karsten Fundal. "We wanted to break down the conventions of the opera as a genre" Fundal says about the genre-breaking record.
