Fugitive Traces by The Young Vish

Fugitive Traces by The Young Vish

One day The Young Vish was sitting outside a hostel in a very remote place reading Werner Herzog’s Conquest of the Useless when suddenly all of nature shivered. (The Young Vish is Joe Sacksteder is a Midwesterner—and this was a new experience for him.) Unharmed, he looked back at his book, and the very next sentence was “Lord Almighty, send us an earthquake.” 

The 17-track Fugitive Traces collages Herzog’s audio commentary with electronic, rock, and chamber music. Fugitive Traces is an homage to the Ecstatic Truth and a critique of the Accountant’s Truth—The Young Vish never really knew love until that head rolled off and kept counting in Aguirre, the Wrath of God, but Herzog also does things like bring about the deaths of ten thousand rats during the filming of Nosferatu and then claim "We lost not one."
