Hymn for Food



Hymn for Food seeks implicate many orders of time around food and its place in intimate and public memory. We present to you an album with five tracks, each of which is a weave of personal stories around food that are annotated by field recordings from homes and public places. Further, the district of Lichtenberg that is a melting pot of subterranean food cultures on account of its vibrant migrant communities is imagined as a beatbox, a studio and a playlist. We imagine sound as an event, a loop, an itinerary and also a leakage from an ‘else-when’. All the featured artists return to a time before the present to find the sway of sound and music on their respective practices.
