Contemporary German painter Albert Oehlen in vited Steamboat Switzerland to create music for his solo exhibition Tramonto Spaventoso at the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles, 2021.

Oehlen and the experimental Swiss ensemble had already collaborated in 2019/2020 at the Serpentine Galleries (London).

The recorded compositions draw connections with Oehlen's own visual strategies in which he interprets and transforms John Graham's painting Tramonto Spaventoso (Terrifying Sunset) (1940 49).

The music has been played throughout the day of the exhibition from June 10 July 24, 2021.

Steamboat Switzerland are Dominik Blum (organ), Marino Pliakas (bass) and Lucas Niggli (drums) who define themselves as a "Hammond Avantcore trio".

Their music, meanders between new music and improvised jazz withinfluences fro m hardcore, prog and noise.

Artwork by Albert Oehlen, Graphic design by Metaphor. Mixed and mastered by Martin Siewert (Vienna), March 2021.
