Happy to announce that my new album Water will be released on May 13 2020! This is a digital release, so no CD version will be available. However, the bandcamp download will include album art, so you can always burn your own copy.
Originally intended to become another tribute to a certain country, developments during the recording and writing of this album caused a change of plans. I believe in unity and forward thinking, together working on solutions for the problems we face.
So the scope became a little wider, and in the end more diverse. The titles that were already written remained, as the places they refer to will not have lost their appeal.
“Inspired by beautiful places in this world, and dedicated to one of the most important elements we have available. Be gentle with it! Enjoy, and stay safe and healthy”

although I am notoriously bad at keeping in touch, I felt it was time to give a little update on my new album.
As asual I started with an album title and wrote down words and phrases that, at least for me, relate to that title. The picture on the left hints at what this album will be about.
The result were 9 songtitles. The first song I started on early 2018 and number nine was finished yesterday! Might be a long time coming for my standards but hey, I have had a lot on my plate these years.
In between I had to write a new version for one of the earlier songs. While I like the idea, the sound of the first version was way too much out of line with the rest of the tracks.
So now I am gonna leave it for a few weeks, and then I will start mixing with fresh ears. Wish me luck 🙂
Here the video for my new track. Make sure you make it till the finale, in my humble opinion the most beautiful part of the song 🙂
While I was working on ideas for the next full length Earthshine album, I came up with the idea for this song. As it does not fit the theme, I decided to release it as a single track.
What inspired me was the thought of all the electric pulses running our body throughout the day. From slowly getting up in the morning, to work, eating and then again slowing down to finally falling asleep.
Official release July 16, it is Name Your Price until then!!
German Metal (!) magazine Legacy wrote a piece about the Abstract Patterns CD too. Since this type of music isn’t really aimed at their target group, I am pretty pleased with what they write! Some quotes translated to English:
- a disc that comes across as very atmospheric
- dominating instruments are piano, mellotron and synthesizer
- an album for the quieter moments which could be fulfilling for people into instrumental music
