Piiptsjilling – Fiif, CD release


Piiptsjilling – Fiif

‘Fiif’ is the new and fifth album by Piiptsjilling, to be released on June 23rd by Peter Foolen Editions.

Piiptsjilling consists of Jan & Romke Kleefstra (Alvaret Ensemble, Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra, etc.), Mariska Baars (soccer Commitee) and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek). They combine poetry with vocals, guitars and electronics. Whether in the studio or live, they always improvise. Without much discussion, they just start, and the music magically pours out, sometimes ethereally beautiful and at other times abstract and noisy.
The album was recorded at Studio Landscape in Gau and mastered by Lawrence English at 158, Brisbane, Australia, and will be released on cd and as download.
The CD is released in an edition of 300 copies and is available for pre-order until 23 June for  8 euro at:
peterfooleneditions.bandcamp.com

After 23 June the price is 10 euro

Piiptsjilling – Fiif / album release by Peter Foolen Editions










Piiptsjilling – Fiif

Fiif’ is the new and fifth album by Piiptsjilling, to be released on June 23rd by Peter Foolen Editions.

Piiptsjilling consists of Jan & Romke Kleefstra (Alvaret Ensemble, Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra, etc.), Mariska Baars (soccer Commitee) and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek). They combine poetry with vocals, guitars and electronics. Whether in the studio or live, they always improvise. Without much discussion, they just start, and the music magically pours out, sometimes ethereally beautiful and at other times abstract and noisy.
Jan Kleefstra’s poems are in Frisian, a language most listeners won’t literally understand, but can just as well be experienced on a musical level, adding a sense of mysterious melancholy to the music.

‘Fiif’ doesn’t so much mark a new chapter for the band, but rather an organic progression of their sound. There’s a rougher edge to it then on previous albums like Wurdskrieme (Experimedia, 2010) or Moarntiids (Midira, 2014), and Mariska’s vocals have gained an even more important role.

The album was recorded at Studio Landscape in Gau and mastered by Lawrence English at 158, Brisbane, Australia, and will be released on cd and as download.
The CD is released in an edition of 300 copies and comes in a vinyl transparent sleeve containing a folded poster with an image of a painting by Mariska Baars and the lyrics in Frisian and English.

Fiif is available for pre-order for 8 euro at

After 23 June the price is 10 euro

Galleria Michela Rizzo presents Unlike A Drawn Line A Walked Line Can Never Be Erased, a solo exhibition featuring works by the artist Hamish Fulton. The exhibition displays what Fulton now calls weaving, the walks that relate with other walks. Invisible footsteps connects four previous walks that are the guided climb to the summit of Marmolada Dolomities in 2004, a seven day walk from and to Bocca di Magra at sea level via the top of Monte Sagro and marble extraction in Carrara in 2007, a five day walk from the mountains downstream to the sea past the Marmolada to Venice in 2012, the one hour walk with 216 participant across and back on stone paving lines of the courtyard at Palazzo Ducale in Venice in 2015 and the more recently eight day coast to coast road walk from Bocca di Magra, via the Seminario Tunnel, ended with the full moon of March in Venice in 2017.
