Episode Summary

Wildbirds and Peacedrums
It was dark and somewhat late at night when while waiting on line to get into a speakeasy bar, in the East Village, which happened to be at the back door of a pizzeria, I saw the strangest boxing match on the blasting TV. It was a mix of kung-fu, boxing and Thai boxing(?), a total mayhem mash-up, and I thought to myself: wouldn’t it be great to see this display of masculinity live? Just for anthropological purposes... I have been somewhat fascinated by the fascination of men to be in the spot light on a ring, and thought that it could be cool to have a very raw and passionate music act on the ring, if possible a two-people band...... Days went by, not that many, when Vincent Moon was looking for a location to shoot Wildbirds & Peacedrums,. It was an automatic response: in a boxing ring! In many ways WB&PD have nothing to do with masculinity display, yet there is this ancient raw power in their sound, which might connect with our primal instincts to ROCK! A year has gone by since we saw them last that September; a Friday, or was it a Sunday? I recently saw them for a drink in Stockholm, they told me about their new album with a twelve-piece chorus from the Schola Cantorum Reykjavík Chamber Choir, it all made sense in my head, a logical evolution. Mariam’s wild bird voice has gathered a flock of Icelandic volcanic birds, and Andreas paves the road with his peace drumming, but before all that there was this beautiful music set at the boxing ring. Sometimes it’s best not to explain or say too much, so here it is, watch it for yourselves, the evolution of WB&PD from a duo (here in these videos) to a duo with a chorus in their new album Retina.
