This band invites the careful listener to a sound world of intimate fragility up to virtuoso ecstasy. Vivid communication, joy, a high willingness to carry a risk and an strong sense for the momentum characterises this band. The compositions form the framework, set a mood, give a direction, but also give a lot of room for strong decisions. They are a platform for collective improvisation. This is music for both mind and heart!

Recorded June 25th & 26th 2011 at Bauer Studios Ludwigsburg by Johannes Wohlleben. Mixed and Mastered August 9th & 10th 2011 at Bauer Studios by Johannes Wohlleben. Produced by Alex Huber
