A short, incomplete story about Danish kings, royal trees, democracy and beech trees, as well as their entwined connection to wild weeds, Abraham Lincoln, neighborhood rules in Houston, and more. The music, composed and sung by Emilý Æyer, references a 1828 play by Friedrich Kuhlau titled Elve’s Hill, the Danish national anthem by Hans Ernst Krøyer (1835), as well as music by the royal composer Heinrich Schütz (1600s) interrupted by made-up speech and experimental sounds.
