Brian Thummler

Ghost Birds (Tape)

Label: Important Records, Cassauna

Format: Tape

Genre: Electronic

In stock


Brian Thummler’s  Ghost Birds combines piano improvisations and noise to create a uniquely compelling musical duality. These 7 pieces, selected by John Brien, are inspired by a lifetime of experience, art & poetry as well as Cage, Merzbow, Satie, Sun Ra......

Ghost Birds takes flight with experimental simplicity. The interaction of noise and piano, a synergy that also pushes and pulls, creates profound musical dimensions available to the attentive listener.
Ghost Birds was recorded in a studio and on an enclosed porch where an old, noisy out of tune upright grand piano lives. Traffic sounds seep in and plant themselves in the recording while the human soul empties into the piano.
Who is Brian Thummler? To quote the poet Lu Yu, he is “the old man who does as he pleases.”

Cat. number: none
Year: 2021

This first edition of Ghost Birds is packaged in a handmade, letterpresses O card slip sleeve.
