“forêts antiques is a live recording of five songs from a performance at The Grand Théâtre in Angers (France) earlier this year. A venue given the acoustics on the recording that is worth visiting.
The middle track, at the time of recording had no name – now named Ireland, is a haunting melancholic track that extends for approaching seven minutes. Kramies delivers a mesmerising performance which relies on inflections of the voice and subtle volume and tempo changes, for it to work, as it it laid to bare chord structure.
To my mind seven minutes worth more than one repeat as Ireland will find your mind captivated by the intensity of the performance which is best received with no sharp objects laying around.”
