As it's name would suggest, Vive Les Fantômes has a certain haunted quality to it.
Some of Brandlmayr's most ambitious and exciting work to date, Vive Les Fantômes was crafted snippets of interviews, rehearsals, and performances by people whose work influenced Brandlmayr's artistic path: Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday, Jacques Derrida and more. Brandlmayr carefully sculpted samples into a coherent whole, creating a deeply psychedelic sound art-piece.

Vive Les Fantômes was originally commissioned for German station SWR and awarded The Karl Sczuka Prize for Works of Radio Art, an honor previously given to the likes of John Cage, Luc Ferriari, Hanna Hartman, and Pierre Henry.
