EXCLUSIVE SETS: Trialogos performing Stroh Zu Gold

Formed from the collective creative minds of Conny Ochs, Sicker Man and Kiki Bohemia comes the brand new musical project Trialogos, who will unveil their upcoming debut album Stroh Zu Gold in a live performance at Roadburn Redux.

Roadburn regulars will likely be familiar with Conny Ochs, who has brought his haunting folk to the festival’s stages numerous times, both in a solo capacity and alongside collaborator Wino. For Trialogos he joins up with Sicker Man, a cellist and composer and producer of film and theatre scores, and Kiki Bohemia, a singer and autodidactic player of lost and found instruments and toys. In March 2020, Kiki and Sicker Man started a series of livestream concerts entitled Cleaning Drones For Locked Down Homes, an experimental ritual to comfort and express emotional and artistic turmoil during a state of emergency. As a friend of theirs for many years, Conny joined them – and they ended up recording Stroh Zu Gold in just three days.

Inspired by the late Tony Conrad’s concept of maximalism in minimal music, Trialogos’ widescreen super 8 soundscapes and ghostly vocals promise to take us on an immersive journey. Their special performance for Roadburn Redux will be streamed from the stunning location of Leipzig’s UT Connewitz, one of Germany’s oldest cinemas that was established in 1912. During the performance, you will be able to order a strictly limited, pre-release vinyl version of the album via a secret website that will become available as the show is streamed. The album will then be available in June via Exile On Mainstream.

Conny Ochs says: “Now we have the chance to play our debut set of Stroh Zu Gold alongside so many astonishing artists and in the realm of the magnificent Roadburn Festival, that to me has always been a symbol of artistic freedom. This is a great honor to us. It feels like exactly the right place for this, a place to get together again on the playground. What a trip.”

“The friend of the hermit is always the third one: the third one is the float which prevents the conversation of the two from sinking into the depth”Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Trialogos will perform as part of Roadburn Redux between April 16-18.
