The music on this record was recorded In november 2019 - before corona.
When I listenrd to it after Corona-releated shutdown and the cultural consequences we experienced, it sounded substantially different to me then maybe in february 2020. I am not quite sure that the music would have a similar feel if I recorded it now.
This music does not have the Corona stamp but the LP has. So I regard it as an offering to global pandemic. The virus has taught us a lot about the world we live in - in my opinion it should be fighted but also embraced.

Since my first solo CD on the Cologne Poise Label, 7 years have passed. For a long time I thought about what a sequel might look like - I finally got down to work with Wilbert de Joode as producer and I am quite surprised how different the music sounds now.

thanks to Achim Zepezauer for providing the cellar of the Künstlerhaus. he showed us how to turn the heating off for the whole building, so it could not be heard on the recording. obviously we left the heating on.
thanks very much to the great Wilbert de Joode, who recorded and produced this album. it is not easy to describe his input in words. it is the way he listens - you cannot escape his ears.
and very special thankss to Oliver Siegel who has mixed and mastered this record. he has done it for many of my releases and for many other people. one always gets the max.
thanks to Achim Zepezauer for the beautiful visualisation.
thanks to my friends from Umland Records, Florian Walter and Simon Camatta for the excellent work in the past 5 years.
