AGF + Craig Armstrong

Who?s afraid of Virginia Woolf?

AGF + Craig ArmstrongHalfway through 2010, Antye Greie-Fuchs (better know as AGF or as half of AGF/Delay, alongside Sasu Ripatti) and Gudrun Gut (founding member of Einstürzende Neubauten and Malaria! as well as being the boss of the Monika Enterprise label, amongst other things) decided to join forces to create their particular hybrid of poetry, tangent pop and experimental micro-electronica under the moniker Greie Gut Fraktion. In spite of the short time that’s passed, their “Baustelle” (Monika, 2010) is already not the most recent of AGF’s collaborations. Her new work shows an Antye Greie in the company of an old acquaintance, composer and arranger Craig Armstrong. In 2006 they worked together on “Memory Takes My Hand”, a long piece –almost an hour– commissioned by the Glasgow City Hall for the re-opening of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Now both have repeated the experience, composing the musical accompaniment of the theatre version of “Orlando: A Biography”, the novel by Virginia Woolf published in 1928. On 18th February, AGF will release this score on CD, mainly made up of pieces for cello, field recordings and voice –always more focussed on the phonetic recital rather than on the melody, and all electronically manipulated via Max/MSP by Antye herself. More details soon.
