Program text


The music of James Leyland Kirby alias The Caretaker is about memory and forgetting. His songs sound like they are being played from worn-out shellac records or drifting out of pale childhood recollections, like the limbo state of a daydream. In his six-stage album series Everywhere at the End of Time, which he completed in 2019, he has compiled songs that Alzheimer patients hummed to him: an elemental, touching, and deeply human art.
