"KĂ¸nnets utilstrĂŚkkelighed er i centrum, nĂĽr Nielsen indtager CafĂŠTeatret. Karen Blixen er omdrejningspunkt for en forvandling, der tager sit udspring i et opgĂ¸r med manden og en udforskning af kvinden som fremtidens mulighed.
Som publikum fĂ¸lges vi med Nielsen, i skikkelse af fortĂŚllersken Baronesse Blixen, gennem en forestilling om friheden til at vĂŚre noget andet end alle de andre - og om at sĂŚtte sig selv pĂĽ spil. I processen indflettes en farverig samling af fortĂŚllingens kvinder. Medea, Ofelia og Antigone tager alle del i transformationen, og midt i det hele gĂ¸r Michael Jackson sin entrĂŠ."

Seattle based guitarist Bill Horist and Jakob Riis embarked together on a short tour of the Northwest US in the Summer of 2009.
Although they had known each other for years (having first met at a festival in San Diego and soon after, performed together in a larger ad hoc group in Tijuana, Mexico) they had never before worked together as a duo.
The plan was simple; each would do a solo set and then they would perform as a duo, wherein Jakob would process, manipulate and extrapolate Billâs prepared guitar work.
It seemed like a good strategy, but neither expected such a synergistic result and âThe Cessation Elegyâ is the culmination of this brief encounter. It explores broad sonic boundaries, finding footholds in a wide array of sounds - drone, raag-infused acoustic exploration, straight up noise, abstract folk, doom, electro-acoustic excursions and dolorous ambience.
Limited edition of 100 copies only on CD; the packaging is handmade, with gold ink screen printed onto black card.
"This is an extraordinary piece of work, a wordless communion in caustic colours and sterling guitar playing... An introspective vibe suddenly flung WIDE OPEN, as it grabs your attention in meaty dives of DOOM, tremors that tonally rot way in bouldering grains... where divisions between each become deliciously blurred and unfold beyond the sum of their parts. A synergy of open thresholds that make for plenty of replays." - . Michael Rodham-Heaps, Freq magazine
âAn occasionally unsettling mix of wordless, solo acoustic guitar melded with dense, industrial hum and mysterious Bladerunner acousticsâŚâ - Captain Fidanza, Collective Zine
âWarm guitar works alternate with manipulated tone works, and the result is a diverse album that plays to the strength of eachâŚ the beauty has been in the danger.â â Richard Allen, A Closer Listen
