Flood is the frame, though it is a permeable one. Anders Clausen and Henrik Olesen have placed a feather on the cover and written a ship of no port on the inner sleeve. Movement frozen in luminescent yellow. Green-grey liquefaction. Nature and construct, fluttering. A ship of no ports, not wanting to dock anywhere. Or everywhere: a ship of many ports – openings, open access, outstretched arms. Welcome! This dance is yours!
Thomas Klein, Alexander Paulick, Andreas Reihse and Detlef Weinrich assembled in Düsseldorf in winter of 2018 for recordings, and then continued with further sessions in Berlin. Starting with around a dozen sketches, the band produced eight pieces, including Flood I – iv and Flood v, an ensemble of five songs that – in lp terms – fills the entire second side of the album.
