Fri Feb 05, 2021 5:55 pm Three (partly FREE and re-) releases by M. BrÃ¼ckner
Dear friends, listeners and supporters,
Bandcamp has bestowed another of those marvellous Fridays upon us on which the full share of sales is handed over to the artists. What a nice opportunity (I said to myself) to take care of two or three things most of which I wanted to do for a long time already. Which are...
1. IF I HAVE NOT LOVE - The Wedding Concert
This is a FREE download (there's also a CD-r edition available).
It's a studio recording of my second ever concert back in 2009, at the wedding party of two good friends. I had composed the music especially for this event. On two tracks, the wonderful Cilia di Ponte joined me on vocals (she also co-wrote the title tracks).
It's a rather accessible album, chill-out with touches of ambient and a few slightly more dramatic moments (relatively speaking). It also contains the cover version of an 80s pop song as a hidden track (comes only with the download).
My old pal Andreas Schwietzke once more provided the marvellous artwork!
2. Le Jardin OubliÃ©
This is the re-release of a beautiful ambient album recorded in 2009 and released in 2013 on the net label Ancient Languges Records. I think it went mostly under the radar, at least I never heard back from the label.
I thought it was about time to claim it back - and it seemed suitable to do it now, because it has one track in common with the wedding album...
Also available as CD-r.
3. KLAUSTROPHILIA - Extended Edition
Most of You will remember this from last November. For the uninitiated: this came as a "bonus item" along with Olaf Lux' book on Klaus Schulze, "Violins Don't Grow On Trees".
By repeated request of some of You, there's now a physical version available - containing about one hour of extra music.
PLEASE NOTE: if You already have purchased the album (and ONLY the album, without the book) I will give You 25 % discount on the new edition. Please contact me if You qualify and want to make use of this.
This was the short version - You can find detailed "liner notes" telling the stories of those albums on their respective BC pages, in case You want to learn more...
Thanks a lot for Your attention and ENJOY the music! ^_^
