Safety in Solitude: Ask the Snow (Backstage Exclusively)

Good evening Everyone! Hope you are doing great?!

Right now I have released my 4th Safe in Solitude track: Ask the Snow. This piece of music has been made exactly one year ago. I do not own the original project files anymore (!!!) so I left it unchanged. If you ask me, I love it :-)

For this session I was working with the «gastronomic luminary» and authoress from Berlin, Nicole Klauss. The photography has been taken a few days ago during her long walks. She says, whenever she needs to think, she listens to my music. Thank you, Nicole. 

Enjoy Ask the Snow!

«Safety in Solitude» is kind of a diary for my Backstage Subscribers which I started last year. The pieces of music I am publishing will be calm sketches, experimental draws or misty landscapes that did not make it to appear officially yet. Maybe some of them will, some don’t. Maybe. I think they are beautiful as they are. Some of you might know that I am not interested in harmonic melodies that much. What I love are moods and repetitions with their micro alterations which you might not even notice. I am hoping to let you float and give room for own interpretation and imagination.

#3: Iteration 

This is the 3rd picture of the talented photographer from Spain, Juan TRakO and my 3rd «Safety in Solitude» track which is a lovely sketch from last summer. I am working on it now with my dear collaboteur Pablo Ortega from Germany. Folks, be aware, you will never hear it like this ever again. 13mins full of beautiful iterations (Backstage exclusively).

As you already know, Safety in Solitude is kind of a diary. For a few weeks I am posting a piece of my music. Weekly.

Enjoy Iteration!

Safety in Solitude: Reflections (Backstage Exclusive)

Safety in Solitude is kind of a diary. For a few weeks I am going to post a piece of my music. Weekly. For you, my dear Backstage-Subscriber. The pieces of music will be calm sketches, experimental draws or misty landscapes that did not make it to appear officially yet. Maybe some of them will, some don’t. Maybe. I think they are beautiful as they are. Some of you might know that I am not interested in harmonic melodies that much. What I love are moods and repetitions with their micro alterations which you might not even notice. I am hoping to let you float and give you room for your own interpretation and imagination. This is the 2nd piece of music…

For the fist «Safety in Solitude» tracks I am working with the talented photographer from Spain, Juan TRakO. I asked him for three pictures of his choice. This is the 2nd picture.

Enjoy Reflections and Happy New Year!

Co-Being (Backstage Exclusive)

«Co-Being (A Statement)» ist wahrscheinlich mein düsterstes Stück. Ich habe es im Auftrag für die Künstlerin Elisabeth Nold-Schwarz komponiert und hatte freie Hand. «Co-Being» widerspiegelt die Vorkommnisse der letzten Wochen, die uns allen mehr als bekannt sind. Es sind nur paar wenige Tage vergangen, seit dem ich das Stück das letzte Mal in voller Länge gehört habe, jedoch, durch die unternommene Kürzung hat es sich entwickelt. Entfaltet. Ich sehe es als sehr viel heller und ermutigender an. Das gefällt mir! 

Co-Being. Wir leben nebeneinander. Leider oft nicht miteinander. Informationen und Dinge werden ausgetauscht. Sie werden wahrgenommen, ein- und ausgeblendet. Miss-, verstanden oder nicht verstanden. Räume werden beansprucht. Allein, gemeinsam. Gewollt, ungewollt. Es entstehen Meinungen. In differenzierten Lautstärkeverhältnissen. Trotz aller Beklemmung lasse ich zum Schluss die obligatorische Hoffnung im Fade-out. Warum? Weil wir «ohne» nicht existieren können. Hoffnung ist schön. Es gibt sie eigentlich immer und so auch einen Weg… 


Ich habe lange überlegt, ob ich den Schritt der Exklusivität machen soll oder nicht und habe mich dafür entschieden. Ich denke, dass im Zeitalter, in dem so ziemlich alles möglichst gratis zu sein hat, man sich durchaus mit dem Rücken dagegen stellen und gegen den Strom schwimmen darf. Das habe ich so immer gemacht. Und Du hörst diese Musik wie sie ist und bist hier auf meiner Webpage und liest, was ich schreibe. Ich danke dir dafür. Falls Du gern alles hören möchtest, das andere nicht zu Ohren bekommen werden, so HIER. «Co-Being» ist solch ein exklusives Musikstück und es kommt mehr… Viel Vergnügen!

Backstage with ME!
