In November 2020, Volker Lankow, Ricardo von Beck, and Michael Prawos met in Bornheim near Cologne for a one-night recording session. Similar to nerve cells, neurons, cells specialized in conduction and transmission of excitation, the three musicians absorbed impulses from their fellow players. The collaboration resulted in a rich, yet not overloaded, almost cinematic musical texture.

The pieces tell a story, beginning with Pseudologia Fantastica, contrived experiences that the musicians take on as their own. They lead us through station F 20 directly into the Mesolimbic tract - the center of the reward system. There an Episode begins, we can evaluate it as a narrative or as temporary mental disorder. No need a Tricyclic psychotropic drug, though, the mood-lifting effect is achieved by the music, and we return to the spectrum (Formenkreis) of music or schizophrenia.
Last but not least, we recommend the listeners not to fall prey to Syllogomania, but to concentrate their collecting passion on the works of Volker Lankow.
