A stranger wanders around the ruins of Berlin, among remains of historical memory and distressing post-industrial landscapes.
In this no man’s land, he follows the hypnotic path of the David Bowie’s shadow in Journal of Nathan Adler (1995), or the one of the character of Thomas Jérome Newton embodied by the rock star in The Man Who Fell To Earth (1976) by Nicholas Roeg. Low is a sensorial and musical journey, accompanied by the self-titled album in the famous interpretation by Philip Glass. Seeyousound pays homage to the unexpected passing of the White Duke and prepares to celebrate the 40 years since the release of the first album of his Berlin trilogy. First work.
