Number of discs:
This album is dedicated to infinity. Whilst experimenting with live dubs, the power of coincidence creates special musical moments. The echoes of a tape dub machine appear infinite, as do the decaying reverbs of a spring unit. I found it refreshing, challenging and inspiring to apply these aspects to my music. Freedom of expression through using hand and mind, not necessarily tied together, but applied separately to buttons, sliders, keys and pedals. I only have to watch the sky to realize how beautiful and timeless infinity is. Man has never come to grips with infinity. Confused by the failure to understand that what cannot be foreseen or explained, man created delusions like religion and deviations like war. But I think infinity is delightful, a joy to dive into, to experience and cherish. Looking at the stars, that which lies beyond comprehension attracts me tremendously. Infinity is inevitable, face it.
The cover photo is a nebula, surrounded by many star systems and dust in the cluster IC 1396, located in the constellation Cepheus. It was made by Rolf Geissinger, who was so kind to let me use it. To me it visualizes man in harmony with infinity, a person looming from the star mist. Take a long deep look and then look again. And again. You’ll see.
