Wolfgang Tillmans: Moon In Earthlight
'Moon in Earthlight' describes the phenomenon one can see in the first few days after a New Moon, when the slim crescent of the moon is completed into a full circle by a faint light that is not lit by sunlight but by the light reflected from Earth. It is also the apt title for the first album from an artist whose first love was astronomy.
After 6 EPs over the course of 5 years, Wolfgang Tillmans now releases his first album, 'Moon in Earthlight', a singularly plural 53-minute piece comprised of 19 tracks.
A composition of multiplicities, Tillmans’ album debut is a collage of sounds, field recordings, words, studio jam sessions and live recordings, voice, soundscapes, and instrumentation scored with audible space to breathe along the way.
Like a phenomenon that marks time, 'Moon in Earthlight' is the shadow and the reflection, fifty-three minutes in time.
