    An Interview with Cu Rua, released by ismellpainter and the Society for a Sonic Enrichment of the Air in 2015, is the documentation of artist Peter Strickmann’s travel to Vietnam and his recorded interviews with Cụ Rùa, the ancient and popular, well-loved turtle of lake Hoàn Kiếm in Hanoi. Read more on Peter’s blog.

    Very sadly, Cụ Rùa was found dead on January 10th, 2016. From that day on, all records were outfitted with an obituary notice. An Interview with Cu Rua may very well be the last vocal statement of a very fine and legendary creature.

    The album art uses Brezel Grotesk by Stefanie Preis and Milieu Grotesque. Both sleeve and cover were printed locally and assembled by hand by the artist.
