Lina Paul - No Blue Birds Passing By

Musical Audio Tour: Highlights from the Groninger Museum collection

Lina Paul makes minimal music in Berlin. Her background is in making sound installation art and her music borders on a sound performance. She uses her fragile voice, a guitar and an old tape recorder filled with everyday background sounds. 

Lina Paul plays at the Groninger Museum on Wednesday 20 April: 4 - 5 PM. Admission is free for museumvisitors.

Inspiration:
Georg Baselitz
Eagle (29 VII 77), 1977
India ink, pencil and watercolour on paper, 86 x 61 cm

One of my songs is called "No blue birds passing by", and when I saw the eagle series by Baselitz I instantly thought of that song, especially this picture, with the blue and the black and the graphite standing parted next to each other. In the song I wrote for this picture I used parts of my sing played backwards to make Baselitz's upside/down sound.
