LA MANSARDE HERMÉTIQUE - The Attic Diaries - Episode 1
New releases Poster: BruecknerAmbient - Date: Fri Jan 27, 2023 7:19 pm
One day in the summer of 2013, when I still was employed at the printing & design shop Druckerei Linde, a lady who was a childhood friend of the brothers Linde (my employers, and actually, friends too), arrived there in the company of a bearded man with rather wild hair and introduced him to me.

However, at that point of time I was still occupied with several ongoing musical projects, and it wasn't until September of 2013 that the first of many joyfull synthesiser improvisation meetings took place - initially indeed inside a mansarde in the house where Mathias and his wife lived...

The rest is, as they say, history - although nearly unknow. So far...
