Theory of the Singular / Teori om det eneste

NOK 299 / € 36


«For 10 years of collaboration with Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, but also many other amazing musicians, in and around The Punkt Festival in Kristiansand, I have tried to make the literary text and the literary reading voice become more symbiotic with the element of sound. It’s been like walking a fine and fragile line, understanding bit by bit the balance and sensitivity it requires. But after a live performance in Oslo in 2013, where I released a two volume book, The theory of the Singular, both me, Jan and Erik, felt that we had material for a record, based on the live recording and the foundation of the book. So early October I’m releasing a record on Jazzland/Universal together with Nils Petter Molvær, Jan Bang, Erik Honoré and Eivind Aarset. It’s also produced by Erik Honoré, and comes as a download version and a limited edition box set, where both volumes of the book – translated into English – are included, which makes this release quite unique.»

– Nils Chr. Moe-Repstad

The album is a limited deluxe edition – a box set which includes a CD and the complete two-volume poetry book Theory of the Singular by Moe-Repstad, translated into English exclusively for this release.





1. De biologiske undergangene
2. År deponert i koder
3. Døden i alveolene
4. Enfoldige kongers hender
5. Det fortelles om traner
6. Hjertets vener faller sammen som elvemunninger
7. Avblomstring av kjønnet
8. Det enkleste og vakreste, elskede
9. Legger kroppen ned for kvelden
10. Den teoretiske slekten
