12,00 € VAT included
Following the widely acclaimed ‘Holiday Diary’ (2003) on Plinkity Plonk, we are now proud to release ‘Ohne Titel, 1916’, the second release by Enrico Wuttke, aka Flim for Plinkity Plonk. It’s an album of sadness, as outlined on the cover: “There are times in life when words cannot account for our losses and we look comfort elsewhere. We may find, outside or deep within ourselves, sounds and images so powerful that they can help us transcend death and despair. How could one attempt to cope with the unspeakable pain of losing a child, through music? To find meaning in the wake of such tragedy, one would have to approach the composition with clarity and simplicity appealing to both the angelic and the inevitable. To avoid being pathetic, one has to find a balance between hope and frustration. The feeling of distress, though dominant, must not stifle the longing for salvation. To make a believable statement on loss and consolation, we must face both the desperate and the serene – zoid.”
Flim aka Enrico Wuttke was born in 1971 in Muhlhausen, Germany and has played the piano since the age of 7. He studied fine arts and made his recording debut in 1993 with the release of some private cassettes. In 2002 he recorded highly acclaimed albums (“Given You Nothing” and “Helio”) for the Tomlab label.
Mastering of ‘Ohne Titel, 1916’ was done by Greg Davis, cover design by Christos Lialios. It’s the first release in a new Plinkity Plonk design – plastic wallets at last. Strictly limited to 500 copies.
