Around the Songster’s Commune was made quite quickly and purposefully without a lot of fuss — made to preserve the spirit of its making — at Diana Duta’s generous Jambes studio in Brussels. It’s a collection of meditations: compositional fragments, whimsy ditties, field recordings and (live/d) experiments with troubadour song-making methodologies. It’s a sonic drift — sonically drifts.
Here, Bergur seems to be exploring the looseness of world-making. Or, maybe better said, exploring how loose he can get with world-making and the realization of sonic realities. Exploring how unconscious, how trusting of himself, as an artist/composer/sound-maker/human, he can be. (Katrina Niebergal)
