Product Notes

Berlin-based AGF (aka Antye Greie) is a vocalist, software musician, producer, label-owner and e-poet. With her fourth solo album, Words Are Missing, she leaves words behind, instead using voice, beats and drones to create a huge palette of unique sounds to work around the phenomenon of silence, speechlessness, deconstructed language and impeded communication. The subjects in which the wordlessness is expressed are carefully chosen and vary from dark-memory experiences like visiting the concentration camp in Buchenwald (when the artist was 16) to beat-driven humorous content, like the track called "Kreuzwortraetsel ("crossword"). The listener witnesses a recorded alphabet turning into a trilogy of compositions called "Letters Make No Meaning (Weapons No War Germs No Disease) I," "Cognitive Modules Party II" and "Ooops for Understanding III," and the differences between recorded silences in tracks 8A. "Present" and 8B. "Absent." the album's artwork delivers a deeper insight into the meaning of the compositions which features a total of 16 works of calligraphy, drawings and photography by AGF designed into an elaborate book format by the renowned designer, Alorenz. The CD comes in an upright digipack with a 20-page booklet that distracts the origin of words into a conceptual letter play derived from abstract calligraphy. Exploring a personal form of poetry into electronic music, pop songs, calligraphy and the world wide web, AGF's entrancing live performances and sound installations have taken place all over the world in museums, auditoriums, theaters, concert halls and clubs.
