The last recording from sound artist Zbigniew Karkowski (1958-2013), recording with Jean-Louis Huhta and Lars Akerlund at the EMS Studios in Stockholm for two large works, one a rich and varied work of noise, the other a diverse droning work of confrontational tones.

Karkowski, Zbigniew / Jean-Louis Huhta / Lars Akerlund
A Bird in the Hand Is Worth Two in the Bush: The Last Recordings, Sweden, November 2013 [2 CDs]

Karkowski, Zbigniew / Jean-Louis Huhta / Lars Akerlund: A Bird in the Hand Is Worth Two in the Bush: (Sub Rosa)

Label: Sub Rosa    
Released in: Belgium    

"This record should be seen not so much as a tribute to Zbigniew Karkowski than as an ongoing concern to further his work and thinking as they were when he was alive, reacting, and questioning, uncompromisingly. Nevertheless, these are his final recordings, which he made- a homecoming of sorts - in Sweden, at EMS Studios in Stockholm, with his friends Jean-Louis Huhta and Lars Akerlund. Late november 2013.

A reminiscence from the 1980s, the creation of the label Radium 226.05 by Carl Michael von Hausswolff, their brotherhood intact. Places where he became what he was. The first recordings and the last ones - after having taken over the world. and from there, again, he decided to head out to sea, to the Amazon, taking control of the final hours of his destiny. and that will be the topic - if our own destiny allows it - of another adventure. For nothing stops and everything carries on under guises none of us could possibly have imagined."-Sub Rosa
