#EPIPHANY The first discovery

The box hidden behind “Diamonds Never Die” was the first one to be found… 

Epiphany

“Fifteen years ago we started accumulating homemade recordings of songs, sketches and improvisations. A few of these made their way into the studios and became album songs. Countless others remained in the shadows of our archives, unfinished, unheard, forgotten. Yet these recordings have their own kind of magic: they bear witness to the process of collective songwriting; they capture the...

Volksbühne Berlin 30.01.2015

Moriarty on tour: Volksbühne, Berlin 30.01.2015.  The next morning, we approach the Volksbühne, its massive presence commanding the Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, its slick greystone face punctuated by a few words: OST.

Philharmonie II 24.01.2015

Moriarty on tour: Philharmonie II (ex-Cité de la Musique) Paris 24.01.2015 Back in Paris, the big twisted shape of the Philharmonie rises in the smog-filled air, cranes and workers still struggling to finish the shiny cladding, while inside concerts are already taking place (and the architect notoriously refuses to appear at the inauguration and to sign a building he doesn’t recognize as...
