An Incomplete History of the Art of Funerary Violin Hardcover
by Rohan Kriwaczek
During the Protestant revolution in Europe, a new kind of music emerged, one that ultimately sought to recognize the deceased and to individuate the sense of loss and grief. But the tradition was virtually wiped out by the Great Funerary Purges of the 1830s and 40s. Kriwaczek tells the fascinating story of this beautiful music, condemned by the Catholic Church for political as much as theological reasons, and of the mysterious Guild of Funerary Violinists that, yes, defends its secrets in our time. This is unquestionably one of the strangest books any publisher has ever risked publishing. Discussing the evolution of European culture, musical forms and society’s changing attitudes to mortality and the emotional effects of music upon the soul, this is a dark and magical history. - source

This heart book is from Denmark. It dates back to the beginning of the 1550s, and is regarded as the oldest Danish ballad manuscript. Above you see the ballad no. 43, Store længsel, du går mig nær (Great Yearning, thou touches me).

From the series, ‘Film Studies’
As some of our skills become obsolete and are replaced with new routines, this body of work pauses to provide a digital homage to the chemical processes that were the beginnings of the photographic tradition. “Film Studies” is a series of portraits made of discarded sheet film after years of decay. Time has obscured and devoured the original images, but the imperfections remain as proof of the organic nature of analogue.
