Death in Haiti: Funeral Brass Band & Sounds of Port-au-Prince

Program text


On his album Death in Haiti the sound artist compiled recordings that he made at funerals in Port-au-Prince. You hear prayers, singing, sobbing – and especially brass bands playing pious blues and jazz pieces during funeral processions and at the grave. In Krems Félix Blume presents a sound installation based on the oldest version of marching band music, which was brought by Haitian refugees to New Orleans at the begin. On display are photographs by Félix Blume and George Harry Rouzier.
