In stock


The Reinvention of Romance,” a new work for percussion and cello that examines the care and empathy that emerge when two lives share space. Over the course of 90 minutes, a series of repeating patterns creates a peculiar kind of harmony in which two musicians are rarely “playing together” but are nonetheless intimately bonded. The Knoxville-based duo Two-Way Street (Ashlee Booth and Adam Lion) commissioned Hennies to compose “a very long piece;” for this recording they step into its two intertwining roles.

Cat. number: n/a
Year: 2020
In [Hennies' album] is reflected the grueling odyssey of everyday life, the absurd yet irrenounceable insistence of the close encounter between lovers, at once the most elementary and complex relational nucleus on which human existence is based. [...] “The Reinvention of Romance” undoubtedly stands among the most unusual and bold artistic statements encountered this year.
