These days are meaningful. Starting with winter solstice there is more room to calm down, to look back on the old year, to find new ideas for the upcoming months and to share something personal.
I would like to give you this song as a little present. It is inspired by the magic time of winter solstice, and also by the ancient celtic tradition to celebrate the kind of mystic nights between 25th December and 6th January. In these cold nights we can find not just rest, reflection and inspiration in the forests but also something more, maybe...
The title means: Once at night in a snow-covered forest. The song includes sounds taken during an unforgettable hike through a winter forest in Finland. You can hear sansula, psaltery and glass organ amongst others. It's mainly inspired by the icelandic band Amiina which I had the opportunitiy to see last winter in Reykjavik. Some years ago they used to publish some beautiful little pieces and soundscapes as a kind of advent calendar. So now, I wanted to give something back.
Thanks so much for listening to my music. Have a great, fulfilling and heedful end of the year.
Langmut. A german word meaning a calm, forbearing waiting, a confident patience, endurance and composure. It helps you to achieve aims that first seemed unattainable. Klang means sound - a complex acoustic noise, a gathering of tones that can touch our heart.
I'm always looking out for these sounds. Sometimes I catch them and include them in my songs. They turn my songs into acoustic afterglows of what was happening. Music does not appear just between sheet music but within the creaking of old wardrobes, the noise of recovered tapes, the humming of a spinning top rotating on a wooden desk.
Das Richtige tun ("Doing the right thing") tells a story of reliance and courage. We can take courage to discover new sides in ourselves. If we want we can become the person who we will have wanted to be.
Klangmut combines instruments like metallophone, concertina and piano with electric sounds and some everyday noises and sounds. The project startet in an apartment in an old building in 17 Egenolff street in Frankfurt - a place that inspired me, after a long time of hesitation, to finally carry out my musical ideas. Klangmut is mainly inspired by musicians from Iceland, like Kira Kira, Amiina, Múm, Pascal Pinon and Óbó.
Thanks to Volker who mastered the album and also to my friends and family who supported me so much. Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to Karsten Nitsch who shot the atmospheric title foto.
The CD comes with a 8 page booklet. Digifile and booklet are produced on 100% recycled paper.
