Xhosa: Death isn't toll-free by Ripdae La Wise & Carl Yvan Prévil
Composer's Commentary version of this project can be found here:m.youtube.com/watch?v=U2OZX9V6N1I
I met Carl Yvan Prévil years ago through Facebook. This project features guest vocals from him, short stories he wrote & decided to record in French after I came to him with the idea of creating an avant-garde album that feels like an odyssey through an abyss of some kind.
The instrumental portion of this album is of course composed entirely by myself through a series of mostly live instrumentation & some heavy sampling of random sounds. The lyrics on my end were also written & recorded by myself. The entire project was mixed & mastered by myself as well, and the artwork/cover art for the project was created by myself, it is a Dadaist/surrealist depiction of Giuseppe Arcimboldo's "Rudolf II of Hamsburg or Vertumnus"
Walls... contains a sample of "Without you my life would be boring" by The Knife
