Catalogue no. ILK294

Songbook contains texts, lyrics and notations of the two albums Tidens strøm & Drapery. Music, words and images are mutually embedded in each other in the sense that the notations in the songbook can be considered visual expressions of the sound of the albums’ music. And the other way round is the music created from the songbook’s lyrics and notations. The texts in the book tell about the process the entire work went through while it was being created.

The book is released together with the LP Tidens Strøm, a studio recording of songs composed by Laura Toxværd and the LP Drapery a recording of graphic notated songs by Laura Toxværd
