about

In 2010, the NUMUS festival in Waterloo paired Dan Goldman with The Pendercki String Quartet. After the show, Dan knew that he wanted to arrange several songs for his next record, Champion Of The Afterworld, in this configuration. The quartet agreed and a plan was set in motion.

Seeking the charm of impossibilities, Dan explored a small handful of vintage synthesizers, studied the 16th Century counterpoint of Palestrina, and spent 9 days in a cabin in the Yucca Valley desert pondering the question of what needed to be said on a lyrical front.

He invited long time collaborator, Daniela Gesundheit (Snowblink, Owen Pallett, Zammuto) to compliment his baritone voice on several duets. He also heavily featured Daniela’s haunting presence on the instrumental tracks.

The narcoleptic, narcotic textures of Champion Of The Afterworld that span 32 minutes — just a little longer than your usual power nap — were produced a day here and there over the course of two years in conjunction with producer, David Travers-Smith in Toronto.
