2007 release. Charlemagne Palestine's The Apocalypse Will Blossom is a stunning piano performance that brings Palestine's recorded work thundering into the 21st century. Working in the lower registers of the piano, as Palestine did in the late '70s, this intensely powerful live performance is unlike anything he's previously released. Recorded in 2000 by Christoph Heemann at the Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst in Aachen, Germany (on the occasion of the 1000-year celebration of Charlemagne), and subsequently processed by Heemann, The Apocalypse Will Blossom offers the closest experience one can have to hearing Palestine live without witnessing one of his performances. This recording is offered in a CD digipak printed in full color with a collage inspired by Palestine's visual work representing the four horsemen of the apocalypse and an original collage detail of Triomphe de la Morte by the French artist Jacques Brissot. Charlemagne, NOW!
