After waiting more than half a year for the arrival of the vinly pressing from the factory, I finally hold my first solo vinyl record in my hands. While the album itself was already released in June this year, this is a special moment nonetheless. For me, having one's music on vinyl always felt like another level of validity and proof of existence for the years to come.
It also provides a certain level of detachement. There is this moment of change: As soon as I hear music I was involved in creating on vinyl, I no longer listen to it with the ears of selfassessment and leave the process of constantly trying to develop and improve it. Now it is done, set in stone - or set in vinyl, if you will... Now I can listen to it for the first time with the ears of an unbiased listener. As if I were you...
Recorded on vintage synthesizers, electric pianos and Hammond Organ in Weltklang Tonstudio Plauen and with Nils Frahms Pianos and Mellotron in his studio in Funkhaus Berlin, this instrumental album brings you ambient moods, evocative improvisations and explosive moments alike. The songs were mixed in Funkhaus by Nils Frahms personal engineer Antonio Pulli and mastered in England by Mastering expert Tim Oliver of Peter Gabriels Real World Studios - all to bring out the best possible sound.

As a special treat for collectors and supporters, I created this very limited Art Edition Box set with my Friends. Almost everything on it is handcrafted and it is a true labor of love. Only 30 boxes have been made and only 25 of these are for sale.
The cover of the vinyl record is not the regular machine printed cover of the serial edition. Instead, the artist Eusepia Lehe, who created the design, painted each of the 30 covers by hand. Every single cover is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Numbered and signed.
The linen structured collector's box, the set comes in, is screen printed by hand with gold color.
Included in the set are also 4 silver gelatine prints of photographs made by Marius Leicht during the recording process of the album. Made with an analog large format camera, developed and printed in the darkroom, signed and numbered - all by Marius Leicht.
It comes with a signed CD, as well as a handwritten personal note from Marius Leicht to you.
