Slobodan Kajkut

The Art of Living Dies...

Slobodan Kajkut, composition
Michael Moser, amplified cello


Lack of musical material, minimalism but not for it's purposes,
patterns shifting in themselves...
The Art of Living Dies...

The piece is performed by Michael Moser,
a cult figure in Austrian new music, whose work includes
significant collaborations with bands like Polwechsel and Zeitkratzer
and artist such as Bernhard Lang,
Peter Ablinger, Fennesz, David Sylvian (Manafon)...

Very slow, extremely static, the piece drives into one direction,
without specific target but also without tendency to be contemplative.
As with some previous pieces (check out GOD 13)
its goal is the pure sense of nothingness...
