Danielle de Picciotto & Alexander Hacke
The Glasshouse is an experimental, silent movie, In which Danielle de Picciotto recounts her last bizarre night in NYC in 1986 which turned into a nightmarish dinner filled with terror, strengthening her resolution to leave the crime and drug riddled city of the eighties and also serving as a metaphor for the growing fear and paranoia in our society.
Danielle de Picciotto & Alexander Hacke have initiated Audio / Visual Productions since 2001. In 2011 Alexander composed a Soundtrack for the silent Glasshouse version and in 2012 they toured with the project, inviting guest musicians to participate:
The Nihilist Spasm Band in London, Ontario. Paul Browse in Berlin, Germany. David Eugene Edwards in Denver, Colorado. Steve Forker in Denver, Colorado. Algis Antanas Kizys in Brooklyn, NY
This DVD Contains the Movie as shown during the performances with a choice of five different audio recordings from Berlin, Denver, London, Kärnten, Austria and NYC.
Extras: The initial short film which inspired the project and live footage from the shows.

The Final Report
The ‘Desertshore’ project is a 're-imagined' cover version of Nico’s seminal 1970 album first conceived by the late Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson in Berlin 2006. In 2010 at his home in Bangkok, he refocussed his approach readying to record guest vocalists while Chris and Cosey prepared material in their UK studio for his return there in December. Sadly, Sleazy unexpectedly died in his sleep on the 25th November in Bangkok.
Chris and Cosey made a commitment to Sleazy to complete the ‘Desertshore’ project picking up from where they left off just prior to his untimely passing. With enthusiastic support and contributions from so many who were close to Sleazy, especially the guest artistes whose work he admired; Antony, Marc Almond, Blixa Bargeld, Sasha Grey and Gaspar Noé, the project will be released 26th November 2012
