BP01 werner durand with amelia cuni and victor meertens: processions
Besom Presse is pleased to announce the July 2019 release of Processions, a double LP by composer, performer, and instrument-maker Werner Durand, with Amelia Cuni and Victor Meertens. Recorded and mixed in his home studio in Berlin from 2012-16, Durand offers four just-intoned drone works distilling global influence into compositions of singular beauty. Performed on an unlikely array of instruments including various self-made wind and reed instruments, sarod, mirliton, bi (a Vietnamese free reed instrument), trumpet, and hammered electric guitar, the result is narcotic.
Mastered and cut by George Horn, pressed by RTI.
