Today, on the occasion of Werner Herzog's 74th birthday, Punctum Records is thrilled to release Fugitive Traces by The Young Vish — a collection of 17 sound poems featuring the voice of Werner Herzog.
The album distills the sublime and absurd from Herzog's unique language to unveil the poetics that flow through the filmmaker's worldview. The 17 tracks make more intimate the musings of one of our most profound artists.
The Young Vish is a writer, academic, and musician whose works have been previously published in Quarterly West, Sleepingfish, The Collagist, Queen Vic Knives, The Rumpus, Hobart, Booth, Dreginald, Passages North, and textsound.
