FRIDAY 17 JULY // 19:00 BST
Following an epic opening of Supersonic Festival 2019 at Birmingham Town Hall, the Neurosis guitarist & vocalist, Steve Von Till, reads poems from his new book Harvestman: 23 Untitled Poems and Collected Lyrics.
We are truly honoured to be hosting this premiere reading at Sofasonic Festival. This is Von Till’s first published work of original poetry paired with his solo lyrics of the last 20 years. Who knows, he might even sing us a song!!!
“It’s about personal longings and loss, and the loves and insecurities we all feel combined with meditations on humanity as a whole,” Von Till explains while discussing his main artistic aims behind No Wilderness Deep Enough, as well as his poetic expressions captured in Harvestman. “I’m exploring the great disconnect: from the natural world, from each other, and ultimately from ourselves—trying to find meaning and depth in re-establishing those connections, to find a resonance in purpose and acknowledging the past while looking towards the future and still being in the moment.”
And with No Wilderness Deep Enough and Harvestman, Von Till has achieved a sense of mass resonance through his restless artistic exploration and gothic Americana sonorities – providing art that journeys into the heart of fear and uncertainty in a world where we’ve often known little else.
No Wilderness Deep Enough and Harvestman: 23 Untitled Poems and Collected Lyrics arrives August 7, 2020 via Neurot Recordings.
