An edit of a live performance at Moving Noises 2015, in the beautiful Chistuskirche in Bochum, Germany. It was the first gig of Piiptsjilling as a trio (minus Mariska Baars). Though we were excited about the gig, we agreed that the recording would benefit from some rigorous editing. And this turned out to be a perfect length for a 3-inch cd.

I wonder how Mr. Kirby feels about this hauntingly serious artistic translation of the experience of dementia into the language of music, and, possibly, his life's work, becoming a silly meme. YogiTheWise
Killing Ghosts weaves ephemereal links with two non-miscible dimensions, flexibly transgresses the borders between the tangible and the unseizable.
It gives us the paradoxical sensation to face an object ready to dissolve in the fog, like an apparition whose existence comes down to the length of our apnea, as the least breath will send it back to the twilight of its life.
This microverse inevitably collapses in the end, but remember that what matters is the journey, and not the destination. Dotflac
Let's put it this way- this is simply one of our favourite works ever!...A collection of variations on a theme that drift by, perfuming the air, or that stop a moment to whisper you a story. Evocative in its sparse beauty, We are sure this will been the permanent playlist always, right alongside Arvo Part's "Alina" and offthesky's "Silent went the Sea" ....ss/tm/am editions vaché
