Salt÷

w/ Kolonihaven Unikum, Rasmus Klitgaard and Lasse Krog M°ller
Collaboration w/ the art journal ARK, 2013.

Through images, sounds and poetry, the publication Salt÷ tells the evocative story about an island.

Salt÷ is a collaboration with the Danish experimental music duo Kolonihaven Unikum (Christian Windfeld & Anders ěrbŠk) and writer Rasmus Klitgaard.

Salt÷ is a depopulated island situated in Kosterhavet near the west coast of Sweden. Here the two musicians have been inspired to make improvisations on prepared piano, percussion and by the means of hydrophonic sounds. This was recorded in a desolate concert room on the island. The relationship between the landscape, the music and this specific location is central to the accompanying lyrics written by Klitgaard. This is in turn interpreted in a series of offset-printed woodcuts originally made with parts of a dismantled piano.

The publication Salt÷ has been created by artist Lasse Krog M°ller and released as a special edition of the art periodical ARK, complete with embossed, oversized cover, a 180 gram vinyl of the music and 10 graphic sheets.

It is printed in an edition of 800 copies.
