I pronounce my gratitude to Nilla and Martina who joined me on this Album.
Martina who gifted this album with an truly magical voice - light and love to you. And great thanks and all the best to Nilla who let her violin sing.
About the creation and heritage of the songs:
I met Nilla on a little music festival where our music was instantly in harmony and ready to be shown to an audience, and so the festival crew gave us a small place to play at the festival. After this stunning experience we decided to travel to a larger festival called "Ancient Trance Festival" located in Taucher, Germany. At this place the same magic happened, they gave us a place to perform on stage. Great thanks to both festival crews!
Seeing our music appreciated like this, we decided to rent a recording studio that belonged to friends of Nilla. I arrived not earlier than one day before the recording session. Because of that we had little time to practice and the little we had planned got lost in the flow of recording.
Martina hosted me on one of my journeys and it was a beautiful experience. Much thanks to you for your hospitality. In our time together we created a song and recorded it a few days later.
The songs are partly a co-creation between me and Nilla or Martina but there is also someone else who was influencing me a lot in the time of creating this album. Estas Tonne, a virtuoso on the classic guitar. I have not only adopted a lot of his techniques and song progressions but also kind of covered songs from him.
To name them: David´s Song and Cuban Dance. I believe that Cuban Dance is a very old song, but my version is very close to Estas' interpretation of it. Also the song Aurora and The Spirit of Estas are full of elements used by Estas Tonne.
I dont see such a strong influence of any other musician on me as a thriving devolopment and am already in the process of letting go.
But since I had already recorded the songs, as well as them being an inside view of my musical evolution, I decided to put them on my CD.
In the end all my thanks to Nilla and Martina, for sharing their energy with me. As well as to Michael and Matthew for recording nearly the whole album. Also to Estas Tonne for tolerating my work with his songs.
A thanks to Julian Triplett for helping me to create the design of my hardcover CD and to Rassoulie who allowed me to use his painting "Energies of Creation" as a cover.
And light and love to all who took part in the creation of this work. Light and love to all entities who were and are in contact with me and have therefore influenced the album with their love and positivity as well as with their negativity, whether consciously or unconsciously!
Recorded and mixed 2015: Matthias Heilig and Michael Bolewski.
