My new album is released by the Moscow based label Dronarivm.
Reminiscences existed with no detailed plan. It is more the result of spontanious playing and recording over a period of 5 months using guitar, pedals and and a violin bow .
During playing lots of images came up in mind, quite simular to the half sleep state of mind where images and situations flow and bind in an unstructured way. While playing and listening to the material it opened up a map of lost memories.
This is how I recollect. Reminiscences.
You can listen and download my album at my bandcamppage.
