METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich is celebrating a new album featuring his 92-year-old father, Torben Ulrich, that was just issued on Friday.
In an Instagram post, Lars wrote: “This is my dad… he’s the one on the left. 92-years-old and just getting started…
“Today, as one does at his age, he’s putting out another record… This one being a collaboration with his dear friend @legoldston. If anybody’s interested in checking it out, it’s available on the @obscure_terrible Bandcamp page. Definitely something to aspire to.”
The new album is titled Oakland moments: cello, voice, reuniting (rejoicing) and its the first commercially available recording between Torben Ulrich and Lori Goldston.
While Oakland Moments is the first duo recording from Torben Ulrich and Lori Goldston, the artists have been close friends since 2005 when they began playing together with Jaison Scott and Angelina Baldoz in the group INSTEAD OF. Torben’s texts/poems emerge from his rice-paper paintings, exploring elements of athleticism, philosophy and mysticism. Torben‘s readings and Lori’s music are interplayed and improvised. The beauty of Oakland Moments comes from their own artistic specialization, the intimacy of the performance and a tangible energy exchange.
