We have used those awkward last months to arrange and record some four songs. Two of them originate from the sessions in France, the other two are more recent. Enjoy listening to them on your favourite Streaming service. "Licht" is german like all our lyrics and translates into "Light"

2014/03/28 Plans for a new video
The idea for a short movie lives on. Just recently we discussed it again with Gerrit from Filmproduktion-Nord and listened to the songs we had once written for that purpose. And we decided to take action, to re-record ENERGIE and start working on the video.

2012/03/12: Vorbei - The soundtrack to complement the crisis
Conceived in 2009 when many of today's headlines could be already anticipated. This song had already slipped our minds when our friends from Elchlos Film rediscovered it and went to work. We haven't contributed to the video but the music and were astonished how well the menacing mood we experienced when writing the song is reflected in the visualization. Experience for yourself in the MEDIA section.
2012/02/05: Three new songideas!

2012/01/19: Songwriting for a short movie
Back in 1995 we started a tradition to once a year spend a few days at the sea, just us and our instruments. This year we'll be challenging ourselves by trying to compose songs for a music based short movie which will be realized by our friends from Elchlos Film. The idea for the storyboard dates back to 2004... more news soon on Facebook.

in a row recording. Thanks to Carl for his support and his patience.
