Contemporary German artist Albert Oehlen invited Steamboat Switzerland to create music for his solo exhibition Tramonto Spaventoso at the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles, 2021. Oehlen and the experimental Swiss ensemble had already collaborated in 2019/2020 at the Serpentine Galleries (London). The recorded instant compositions draw connection with Oehlen’s own visual strategies in which he interprets and transforms John Graham’s painting Tramonto Spaventoso (Terrifying Sunset) (1940–49).

Cat. number: TR216
Year: 2022
Recorded live at Photobastei Club Zürich during five-day residency by Giuliano Sulzberger, September 22-26 2020.
