Contemporary German artist Albert Oehlen invited 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 draws 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.
