Handwerke – Songs for my Fathers
2021 | Album | Live-Music and Composition
The vinyl version of »Handwerke – Songs for My Fathers«, Simon Lovermann’s debut album. Oscillating between Jazz, Electronica, Hip Hop and Minimal Music, the album is focused around the piano, both as a harmonic and a percussive instrument. The album deals with the personal story of the artist and serves as a way for him to explore topics like death, fatherhood, family, identity and belonging.
Simon invited 16 artists to contribute an image that reflects their own personal (artistic) identity, with the intention of bringing together a variety of different, deeply individual explorations of the self. „Handwerke“ comes with a special artwork and cover design, featuring these contributions printed on individual postcards and assembled in a 20-page booklet.
Simon celebrated the release with an intimate suite of performances at WEBBER Gallery in London, showcasing all 16 visual contributions.
The release is a collaboration of Der Greif and Squama Recordings. Artwork designed by Daily Dialogue.
