Orphax – De Tragedie van een Liedjesschrijver Zonder Woorden preview


After several CD-R releases on several labels and self-released Dutch drone musician Orphax presents his first pressed CD “De Tragedie van een Liedjesschrijver Zonder Woorden” (The Tragedy of a Songwriter With Out Words) on Moving Furniture Records in October.

De Tragedie van een Liedjesschrijver Zonder Woorden is an album written in a period where Orphax (Sietse van Erve) went through a lot of changes in his life, both good and bad. Inspired during this period he made several compositions about love, stress (due to finishing a Masters study in geology), struggling with sickness and eventually finding peace of mind. Some of these things have gone and changed, but others are still valid in his current situation. This makes it still a relevant piece in his life and career as musician.

The album will contain six wordless, minimal drone songs.
The album is mastered by Jos Smolders at EARlabs.
You can listen to one of the pieces here: Samen aan het water (master) by Orphax

More previews will appear soon.
The album will be available on limited CD (300 pieces) and in digital format.

Also upcoming much quicker will be a limited CD-R by Sindre Bjerga & Nils Rostad with both artists presenting a live recording made at Moving Furniture Records HQ. This is expect to be out in a week. More info when that is available.
