Description

Samy Birnbach & Benjamin Lew - When God Was Famous (A Tribute to Poetry)

A Tribute To Poetry - Yeats, Hermann Hesse, Malcolm Lowry, Boris Vian, Apollinaire, Paul Eluard, Thomas Hardy, Kenneth Patchen, Gottfried Benn, Delmore Schwartz, Bob Kaufman, Paul Celan... set to music by Minimal Compact vocalist Samy Birnbach (aka DJ Morpheus) and ambient maestro Benjamin Lew. The deep, multitracked voice of the former, resonating above the delicate tapestries of the latter, sometimes conjures the image of a congregation of deviant monks in a moonlit, alien monastery, chanting the most unorthodox texts in English, French and German...
