Simon Lovermann – Handwerke - Special Edition (All 16 Postcards)
The special edition of »Handwerke – Songs for My Fathers«, Simon Lovermann’s debut album. The special edition is limited to 20 pieces, signed by the artists and features 16 postcards assembled in a paper box. These postcards work as individual covers for the record. They feature visual contributions from the following 16 artists: Laia Abril, Thomas Albdorf, Gita Cooper-van Ingen, Adji Dieye, Anna Ehrenstein, Saskia Groneberg, Balarama Heller, Tommy Kha, Gabby Laurent, Fiona Ones, Nicolas Polli, Maximilian Prüfer, Silvia Rosi, Pacifico Silano, Susanne Steinmaßl and Dustin Thierry.
Oscillating between Jazz, Electronica, Hip Hop and Minimal Music, the album is focused around the piano, both as a harmonic and a percussive instrument. The album deals with the personal story of the artist and serves as a way for him to explore topics like death, fatherhood, family, identity and belonging.
Simon invited 16 artists to contribute an image that reflects their own personal (artistic) identity, with the intention of bringing together a variety of different, deeply individual explorations of the self. „Handwerke“ comes with a special artwork and cover design, featuring these contributions printed on individual postcards and assembled in a 20-page booklet.
Simon Lovermann is an artist, composer and cultural entrepreneur and the founder and artistic director of Der Greif.
The release is a collaboration of Der Greif and Squama Recordings. Artwork designed by Daily Dialogue
