Earlier this year, German's self-proclaimed "poem-producer," AGF, and accomplished film composer Craig Armstrong (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!) collaborated in scoring a theatrical interpretation of Virginia Woolf's 1928 novel Orlando: A Biography. The performance featured the score written by the two, as well as live electronics and poetry from AGF. Now AGF Producktion will be releasing a CD version of the score comprised of classical cello, field recordings, and AGF's trademark tiny, intimate voice, all digitally processed as they weave through the narrative of the play. For those unfamiliar with AGF's work, she is known for combining her simple and provocative poems with manipulated electronics and acoustic instruments, creating sparse and lush abstractions that exist in the blurry cross-section between art, music, and poetry. Something like a smaller, German Robert Ashley. Orlando will be available February 18. Check the video below for a taste of AGF's style from her collaboration with Vladislav Delay known simply as AGF/Delay.
