Your Two Hands
Yuliya from Ukraine
On this album I have put together older compositions that have either appeared on samplers or have not yet been released. The pieces are all at least 10 years old and some have been recorded in other versions or as a duo (with piano…).
I´m Just a Machine
This song is a production from 1999 and I couldn’t resist releasing it now. At that time I was experimenting with an artificial voice and produced a few tracks. Unfortunately nobody was interested in this music back then and I’m afraid that won’t change either. But it belongs in my history, especially since I put a lot of time into these productions and the voice. The voice to be heard is purely synthetic, i.e. generated by the computer. The music that can be heard there doesn’t have much to do with what I’m releasing today, but I still enjoy it today.
Against the Grey
The month of November 2021 felt very “grey” to me. During this time, the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic was mounting. Adding on to this were very bad news concerning my family and I was planning on composing a melancholic ballade. However, I then decided to write something cheerful and vivacious to combat the grey feelings. This dance was the result, but I still couldn’t make do without harmonies in a minor key.
Not a Real Decision
An album of older guitar tracks, mostly unnotated. Almost all of the pieces have appeared on various samplers (World of Romantic Guitar, World of Acoustic Guitar…). I can no longer play most of these pieces today and it would be pointless to notate them later by listening to them.
“Tequila Moon” now completely online…
A production from 2002 – timeless music, that’s why it’s published again on the internet!
Stream “Back on the Hill” on Spotify…
Album „Steel String Guitar“ now on Spotify!
The double album “Steel String Guitar” from 2009 can now also be heard on Spotify, but also on many other streaming services (e.g. iTunes, Youtube…).
