""KAMILHAN; il y a peril en la demeure" is the conclusion of a 5-part cycle of works by artist Grischa Lichtenberger which was initiated with the album "LA DEMEURE; il y a peril en la demeure" in 2015 and continued with the triple EP release "Spielraum, Allgegenwart, Strahlung" in 2016. In addition to the concept of "demeure", ones residence as a symbol for the joy and artistic possibilities one can find in isolation, Lichtenberger places a further emphasis on the expression of the voice, represented by the word "Kamilhan". "Kamilhan" is a non-existent word, an expression that Ernst Bloch once mentioned in an anecdote about his childhood. As on the previous album, the tracks on "KAMILHAN" are constantly torn apart and reassembled. Borrowings from hip-hop and even pop are unmistakable, desired, and yet delusive. Rhythms that are repeatedly broken in order to re-organize themselves into new temporal patterns. Melodies that are pierced by precisely these intricate rhythms. Voices that lack any empathy due to their artificiality. Lichtenberger himself describes these tracks as "crooked ballads", which, by deliberately following classic pop song structures, try to sell us the absurd as the normal, and in turn smuggle some hope of recognition into the absurd."
