Christian Koehler was the motivating mind behind the project, Stabat Mors.
Fusing thematic concepts and philosophical ideas based on Althusser, Mishima, Derrida, Artaud and Cioran, the accompanying noise is a confrontation with distorted accordian, metal, piano andmicrophone to tube; a farewell release that is a sharp feedback orgy and celebration of despair.
"Hegels Tod" is the first track: a solo recording from 2006.
Very isolated, sad and extreme, the mix is an infusion of trying to bind the theme of death into sound.
It was the last track recorded before he died the same year.
The second piece is a documentation of Stabat Mors' first live show at the Neues Museum Bremen in 2004, featured here as a trio. Etuede 2 & 3 of "Bild und Tod nach Derrida"
is a mixture of lecture and noise-cacophonia.
Richard Ramirez appears on the other side of the LP with long track recorded in 2006.
"Error Strike" is a barrage of dynamic, crushing noise; an enduring wall that spans twenty minutes!
The LP is the memorial to Christian, it is sad that he will never see the final result!
Cover released on paintings by Christian Koehler plus additional insert featuring the text, to "Bild und Tod nach Derrida".
