KVH009. Troy Schafer – Supreme Happiness Forever C20

The unique and compelling experimental violin works of Troy Schafer combine the primordial, the spiritual and the unexpected, to form challenging, droning pieces of chamber music. His soundscape is obscure and solemn at the same time. „Supreme Happiness Forever“ links the poetic warmth of symphonic music and the decomposing approach of some radical modern classical music, merges the unsophisticatedness of traditional music with the experimental approach of avantgardism.

Schafer, who resides in Madison, WI and occasionally operates under the pseudonym Zavier Krall, is likely to be known for his contributions to Rain Drinkers, Kinit Her and Burial Hex. A pro-dubbed, limited cassette tape edition of „Supreme Happiness Forever“ was released in October 2012.
