<> Love Is The Breath

"Love is the breath." The clock has stopped for me. Mouth is shut. Hands tied. I face ruin, and see ruin in my face. no arms wait for me. I see ruin in my face. Is this true? "Love is the breath." Four things to remember: Keep the thought close, It's small but it is mighty. "Love is the breath." Four things to remember: Fly beyond the traps, homes are in the hills. "Love is the breath." Four things to remember: Don’t break things that have lost their tenderness. You’re better than that. Remember. Keep the thought close, if it’s burning it may catch light. "Love is the breath." This is true. "Love is the breath." This is true. These are my thoughts on this matter. I wish I understood more. Tell me your side. I only hear blanks when you speak. Come and show mewhat you mean. I want that morethan the truth..

In The Between-Der feine Geist

Breathe in, you’re here at last / Breathe out the echoes of the past / I’m travelling in silence and alone like the light / In between your eyes and a falling star / Let it go, let it go, let it go / All the wisdom and the words / You used to know / I am travelling in silence and alone / In between
Losing the illusion of control. Vulnerable and unprotected. A radical change in reality. No options, no room for negotiation. A complete break. Gaps arise, interrupting continuity. The old reality is lost, it is no longer available. There is no ground, no certainty and no reference point. The transformation may begin.


This is a live session to the music piece 'Wrong Turn' from the motion picture 'Freier Fall / Free Fall' by Stephan Lacant.
One day at lunch we thought about playing film music live. We discussed with the people in our team (Niklas, Jonas and Doro) not to play the piece exactly as it sounds in the film, but to interpret it in a new way. So René and Niklas played the guitars like in the original, while Jumpel, Doro and Jonas played instruments that are not part of the original composition. Besides the electric guitars, a Korg MS-20, a Roland TR-808, various modular synths, an Op-1 and a piano are used.


This is a live recording session for the motion picture FREMDE TOCHTER. We decided to go for a different musical approach than usual. We left our studio comfort zone for 1 day and set up our gear in an old factory hall. The music was composed by improvising to the projected images with our modular synths, guitar pedals and sampled instruments from our CINEMATIQUE INSTRUMENTS library. At the end of the day we had a lot of ideas, textures, atmospheres and even full compositions to take back into the studio for further development. We wanted to create music that was fragile, minimal and ethereal.

The Veranda

We went to Australia to work with the incredible percussionist Michael Askill. We recorded orchestral & ethnic percussions in a studio of „Queensland Academies Creative Industries“ where Michael is the percussion director. We also recorded some amazing instruments like a five octave bass marimba at the best drum shop in the world „Just Percussion“. We had a nice house in Brisbane with a lovely veranda. So, one morning we decided to make some music on that veranda before going to the studio again. We set up the modular synths, gong, singing bowls and guitar pedals and started improvising music with the singing of birds in the background.

First Encounter

This session was recorded at „Queensland Academies Creative Industries“ in Brisbane. Michaels friend Erik Griswold, an amazing prepared piano player came around, did a quick piano preparation and suddenly we all found us in a 2 hour nonstop improvisation. Michael played everything percussive he could find in this room: a gong, several marimbas and vibes, timpani, snares, Glockenspiel. Jumpel played his modular synths and René played guitar with various pedals. This first encounter with Erik was amazing, sometimes chaotic and cacophonous and all of a sudden melodic and gentle, like it was composed before.
