Double LP version. I Talk To Water, the fifth album for Kompakt by Danish producer Kölsch, is the artist's most personal statement yet. While all the trademarks that make his music so popular and powerful are still present -- lush, melodic techno; swooping, trance-like figures; sensuous, shivery texturology -- I Talk To Water is also a deep and intimate rapprochement with family and history, a beautiful, finely detailed document of loss and memory, and a tracing of the long, unbroken thread of grief that runs through our lives once we've lost those we loved. The emotional core of I Talk To Water, then, is a cache of recordings by Kölsch's father, Patrick Reilly, who passed away in 2003 from brain cancer. With time rendered elastic by the pandemic and its associated lockdowns, its sudden, alienating shifts in everyday living, Kölsch found himself reflecting on his father's passing and ongoing spiritual presence, thinking about how best to memorialize such a significant figure in his own life. Those recordings opened a gateway, of sorts, for Kölsch to move through -- a way to bring past and present together and entwine them in a sensitive, poetic manner. Recordings of Reilly appear on three songs across I Talk To Water. Also featuring Perry Farrell.
