about

“(There is no) There There” is the first single from Rumpistol's upcoming sixth album “After the Flood”, out later this year on ØEN REC.

The track and the album as a whole represents a significant creative shift towards a more classical and analogue sound partly due to Rumpistol suffering a stress-related burnout, which forced him to work in a completely new, minimalistic manner away from computer screens.

The new compositions all stem from composing on the piano. Therapeutically, as well as artistically, this turned out to be rewarding, which is evident when listening to “(There is no) There There”, which has an uplifting, ethereal quality to it, yet remains tangible, almost tactile, in its use of organic, non-electronic instruments and textures.

Rumpistol also invited other artists and musical instruments to join in: Mike Sheridan plays an old french glass organ called 'Cristal Baschet' in addition to Line Felding on cello, Maria Jagd on violin and Emil de Waal on drums.

During his burnout Jens went on walks around his city and if you listen closely you can hear how Jens' own field recordings of Copenhagen's many construction sites blend with the other instruments of the track.

Jens says about the track:

"The track deals with the feeling of being an alien in your own city - and in your own mind. Not to be able to recognize your own backyard, due to the constant development and gentrification going on. The title is inspired by the book "There There" by Tommy Orange who got his title from American novelist Gertrude Stein."
