Description

Artist: AGF Album : Kuuntele Label : AGF Producktion Released: 15 November 2013 Style: Electronic, Experimental, Avant-Garde With the CD "Kuuntele", AGF (Antye Greie-Ripatti) interprets the poetry of her new homeland Finland with a few well chosen examples. Her method is the same as in her former CD, Gedichterbe (2011), for which she just received an Honorary Mention at Ars Electronica in 2013 in Digital Music & Sound Art. Poems are always the starting point for her music, but from there AGF creates independent pieces. Schubert and Schumann followed the path of their poets' expressions - they sewed a costume for the poem, where figures of the body could be identified. Languages, in this case Finnish and English, can be transcended: as auditive material there is no great difference between them, as meaning is diminishing into a backdrop. These poems are keenly connected to music, voices and their sensorial prerequisite: hearing. The whole is acoustic and electronic. Different layers of music bring additional dimensions to the poetry. Words are springboards for the music, but only a beginning. They do not just intermediate meanings, but rather deliver a comprehensive experience.
