Chronologies from beyond spaces and a moment finally to talk to Them. Un-called-upon voices. Un-remembered stories.
Katharina Fink writes: “Much as Spoek Mathambo salutes the “ghosts that live between the beats”, this sonic note composed for the occasion of the launch of "Ghost, Spectres, Revenants”* is a scintillating invitation for a deep-diving presence in the mirror, a state of being fully haunted by the dreams of the ancestors, which, in some moments between dew and dirt, we become.”
And it is true. To act guided by the knowledge of those who have come before, the ever sentinels and observers, louding above time. Us, now awakened and alert. Them, vast tongues blazing.
