Time Temple: Reflections (1989)

The music on this CD is ambient music to slow down and to enjoy being in the moment, being in a time temple... The improvisations, played mainly in eastern scales on acoustic instruments, create a peaceful and meditative atmosphere. The different pieces are reflections of different moods, ever changing with the flow of life. Improvised music is an authentic free flow of energy and vibration in the present moment and thus the creation of an instant composition by the Spirit. The music has been been recorded in 1988 in West Cork, Ireland.

Calle 33 - Cosmic Radio (1983)

“Kraut Rock” jam sessions from a remote place. Once upon a time there was a commune of some unusual individuals who lived together in an old farm house in the countryside in northern Germany. They often played music for their enjoyment, that just happened spontaneously and unfolded miraculously as if by magic by unconsciously tuning into Cosmic Radio! None of the players was too sure how this happened and worked and it did not matter one bit! The onderful nights were fun and full of musical surprises that no one could remember too clearly afterwards ... Musicians: Kira Boschen, Martin Gust, Martina Fahrenberg, Thomas Wiegandt, Wolfgang Steinke and some others.
