Plan Kruutntoone

Wat Doen De Handen (LP)

Label: esc.rec.

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock

"...and again I woke up. rendering Xenakis pale. shifting myself and stuff around in search of security. how to put it to make it to that?"

**2022 stock** The new album by Plan Kruutntoone is called ‘Wat doen de handen/ What are the hands at’. The album stands out by bringing together Plan Kruutntoone’s uncompromising own music and pieces for string quartet, written by Hans. The notes bind it together, as do the disconcerting text fragments of Beckett (‘grope in a panic in the mud for the opener that is my life but of what cannot as much be said could not as much be always said my little lost always vast stretch of time’) alternated with those by Hans. They convey a sense of isolation that, by singing about it, opens up. The result is fragile at times, strangely compelling, harsh and repetitive at others.

Cat. number: esc.rec.55
Year: 2017
Recorded in Bergentheim and Amsterdam. The Samuel Beckett text fragments are taken from “Comment c’est / How it is”, in the Dutch translation of F.C. Kuipers, published by De Bezige Bij (1968). ‘Wat doen de handen’ is released on the Esc.rec label as 12-inch vinyl and as download. Vinyl comes with a download code.
