Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld – 8.45pm

Three years after their debut album Still Smiling, Teho Teardo and Blixa Bargeld return with a completely new work. Often the nature of a collaboration is framed within a single episode limited in time, but this is not the case here. This is the result of a special bond, both artistic and personal, where Teho and Blixa reinvent their relationship to explore new territories.

Nerissimo is the title of the new album. Written and sung in German, English and Italian, the songs stretch from microscopic dramas played out in a Petri dish (“Ulgæ”) to the surreal epic and cosmic seven minute journey “Animelle”. The title song “Nerissimo” opens the album in its English version and closes it with the Italian version, bracketing the album like book-ends.

Listening to the album, one undergoes a temporal passage between languages which intimately connects Rome and Berlin, the two cities where the album has been recorded, an emotional journey through the last three years of work together. Travelling in the multi-faceted blackness, the songs shape a diary of apparitions, of colours that could transform the whole universe once you name them, a nighttime flight with the lights off above European capitals.

What with Teho Teardo‘s contributions towards electroacoustic sound design and Blixa Bargeld‘s work with Einstürzende Neubauten and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, we’re excited to welcome such a unique pairing of artists to Rich Mix this June!
