Who are they and what are they about? Read on...
Rudolf Abramov is a duo based in Berlin. They seem to open a door to unexpected musical
encounters. It's an almost impossible task to sum up their sound in a comprehensible way, but in their
own words their music is 'a response to a seemingly endless conflict about disgust, acceptance and
love.' Since the duo likes to invite other musicians and fellow humans to add to their pieces, this often
creates another layer to their unexpected musical encounters.
"Losing Perspective" is the result of a journey that began with a week-long recording session outside
the city. Back in Berlin the skeletons of the track gradually grew in flesh, experience and emotion,
describing this time in a vibrant and ever-changing city; a city where the faded colours sometimes
seem more appealing than the unifying glow of the new.
In order to preserve for ourselves the conflicting colours in their fantastic disharmony, we have
therefore watched the pieces change rather than moving them in a particular direction. The result is a
number of tracks with different facets that derive from different moods and voices, indulging in diversity.
At the end of this process, we look back at this colourful collage and connect our own very personal
history with it and both resolve in harmony. When asking the cat from our studio’s courtyard for
example, she said that "Losing Perspective" was about stray tomcats who have lost their old home
port to a newfangled establishment wandering randomly through the days in search of songbirds,
distraction and rest. And we feel like she kinda has a point there.
