Format: CD digipack

Genre: Experimental

Yesmissolga Records is proud to present its debut release with a stunning piano performance by Charlemagne Palestine. The Apocalypse Will Blossom brings Palestine's recorded work thundering into the 21st century. Working in the lower registers of the piano, as he did in the late '70s, this intensely powerful live performance is unlike anything previously released by Palestine. Recorded by Christoph Heemann in Aachen, Germany at the Ludwig Museum in 2000 on the occasion of the 1000 year celebration of Charlemagne and subsequently processed by Heemann, The Apocalypse Will Blossom offers the closest experience you can have to hearing Palestine live without witnessing one of his performances.

This recording is offered in a CD digipak printed in full color with a collage inspired by Palestine's visual work representing the four horsemen of the apocalypse and an original collage detail of Triomph de la Morte by the French artist, Jacques Brissot. Charlemagne, NOW
