Cop Tears – Theodor Adorno: Piano Works LP
Cop Tears recorded selections from Theodor Adorno’s piano works in an apartment in New York during the winter of 2018. Cop Tears is John Andrew Wilhite-Hannisdal (double bass), Derek Baron (flute), Cameron Kapoor (guitar), and John Welsh (guitar).
This is Cop Tears second album, following their recording of John Cage’s Thirteen Harmonies (2016), re-issued by Recital in 2018. Andrew flew in from Norway and stayed at the apartment in New York where Derek and John were living. Cameron came over each day for a few days and we figured out arrangements of these piano pieces mostly on the fly.
Mastered by Matt Bachmann, with a liner note essay on the LP jacket by Kylie and Coop.
