In stock

Am Grabe (At the Grave) is an ongoing audio ritual executed by Stefan Fricke and Alper Maral. Since 2015, they have been visiting the graves and burial grounds of composers from various eras in order to record the sounds and noises present. Each sequence is a pure field recording, serving as a memento of a bit more than 4 minutes in length. After having been compiled for a series of radio programmes, selections from Am Grabe here appear on audio media for the first time. This edition commemorates 36 composers – from Bach to Beethoven, from Mahler to Eisler, from Stockhausen to Ben Patterson –, the recordings connected serially, sometimes overlapping, and compiled across 4 LP sides.

"Am Grabe is a work in progress, a collection of homages which shall and can never end, as long as emphatic music will exist and will constantly be invented in the world." (from the liner notes)
