Crescent Moon by Chihei Hatakeyama

Gestern ist auf meinem Label EndTitles ein sehr schönes, kleines Album von Chihei Hatakeyama erschienen. Es besteht aus zwei ca. 20 minütigen Stücken. Eines davon ein Ausschnitt seines Konzerts, das er zusammen mit Joel Gilardini in meinem Café im November 2018 gab. Taucht ein…

«Waxing Moon» on the A-side is the live performance at Café Miyuko during the first edition of EndTitles.Kitchen.Lab to the early and middle stages. It is a guitar improvisation mainly and I have been using the long delay of Strymon’s El Capitan. The day after the live performance in Zurich was a day off for me, so I roamed around Zurich. Enchanted by the beautiful streets of Zurich, I headed to Lindenhof Hill. While watching the Limmat River I remembered Ueda Castle in Nagano Prefecture. Views from similar cliffs. 

I then headed to Lake Zurich and drank coffee. That night I watched the Inter vs Barcelona Champions League at a bar. 

«Waning Moon» recorded on the B-side is a performance in my home studio. This is also mainly a guitar improvisation and I switched the delay pedal into Strymon’s Volante. This piece of music is inspired by the memories of Zurich. 

Thank you for listening, Chihei

This Special Edition of Chihei’s: Crescent Moon comes in a beautiful and sealed packaging of 30 units only. It is a packaging for coffee beans. The Edition is produced for Chihei Hatakeyama exclusively. The cassettes will be available via him directly. More infos to come…

An Moku: LIVE IN CAIRO

Wie die Zeit vergeht. Es ist fast ein Jahr her, dass ich das wilde Cairo besuchen und erleben durfte! Diese Millionenstadt hat einen solch immensen Eindruck auf mich verübt, dass ich mich vor wenigen Monaten entscheiden habe, das Konzert des Mapping Possibilities-Festivals als CD zu veröffentlichen. Eigen finanziert und auf meinem Label EndTitles veröffentlicht.

«Back in September 2018 I have been invited to play a show at the Mapping Possibilities VI Festival in Cairo. This show took place at the Cinema Zawya and it was an anniversary show for Pro Helvetia Cairo. The idea of the Mapping Possibilities festivals is to play a live show supported by strong visuals. My Visual Artist was Mostafa El Baroody. There is no full-length video of the show. Only a few fotos by Aly Nabil. But some of the visuals by Mostafa can be seen on my webpage. Links below. So arm yourself with good headphones and while you are listening to this album just imagine crazy visuals. Have fun!»

Eine Sache! Die CD hat einen Schönheitsfehler: Das Presswerk hat versehentlich obligatorische Pausen von wenigen Sekunden zwischen den einzelnen Stücken hinzugefügt. Das war nicht beabsichtigt. Als ich nach vier Wochen aus den Ferien zurückkam und die CD sichtete, war es leider zu spät dies zu beanstanden. Ich kann damit leben. Ich hoffe ihr auch ;-) 

Danke für euren Support! Dominik

Soundtrack for Podcast

A podcast is a very common tool to spread the word. I love listening to podcasts.

Sandra Weber is a talented person. She is vegan and she is the mastermind behind a swiss magazine called VLOWERS – joyful vegan living. Some days ago we met and came up with the idea of producing a track for her podcast. So I did it in the middle of the night. It is done and I am very excited to listen to the whole thing very soon :-)

Btw, I am reading the new DRIFT issue currently ;-)
