Lars Ulrich’s dad, the 92-year-old Torben Ulrich, is proof that advancing age means anything but slowing down.

Torben recently released a new album with cellist Lori Goldston called Oakland moments: cello, voice, reuniting (rejoicing). Lars helped promote the album via his Instagram writing, “This is my dad… he’s the one on the left. 92 years old and just getting started…Today, as one does at his age, he’s putting out another record… This one being a collaboration with his dear friend @legoldston. If anybody’s interested in checking it out, it’s available on the @obscure_terrible Bandcamp page. Definitely something to aspire to.”

Per the album’s description on BandCamp, “While ‘Oakland Moments’ is the first duo recording from Torben Ulrich and Lori Goldston, the artists have been close friends since 2005 when they began playing together with Jaison Scott and Angelina Baldoz in the group Instead Of. Torben’s texts/poems emerge from his rice-paper paintings, exploring elements of athleticism, philosophy and mysticism. Torben’s readings and Lori’s music are interplayed and improvised. The beauty of ‘Oakland Moments’ comes from their own artistic specialization, the intimacy of the performance and a tangible energy exchange.”
