about

Already back in 2018, after a concert with Volker and our friend, synthesist and electronic composer Bernhard Wöstheinrich in Berlin, I recorded the basic tracks for "Segmented Visions", however due to various other commitments, the project was put on the backburner for some time, only to be resumed and finished in 2020.

Compared to its predecessor, "Monsoon Offerings" (with our guest Suzannah Moon), "Segmented Vision" features a wider variety (10 shorter tracks instead of 3), on the other hand it can be seen as one long composition in ten parts.
The mood turned a bit more sombre or pensive in places - which may seem suitable in the light of the dramatic event of a pandemic dominating the bigger part of everyone's life on the planet.
However, the music was finished before the full impact of Covid 19 hit our part of the world.

PLEASE NOTE:
All tracks on this album are 24bit recordings, with exception of the bonus track that comes with the download.
That track is the original 16bit master file of the complete (uncut) album.
Originally we intended to add that in 24bit quality, too - but the file exceeded Bandcamps maximum upload size.

To experience the added quality of the 24bit files, You need to download the album as WAVE, FLAC or one of the other uncompressed formats.

We are VERY happy that excellent visual artist Paul Nicholson (who also is an electronic musician and radio host) allowed us again to use some of his exceptional work for the cover, booklet and CD imprint.
There's also a beautiful trailer video for the album, featuring all paintings we used for the CD, and some more:
