DEADLINE by Stolle and Member

Us two not quite old men met at Stolle's place to taste some single malts and get sentimental about our pasttimes. We also managed to record some new stuff. This is a rough mix of an instrumental piece we did. More to come, maybe.
Enjoy!

MIRG - Basar



Dear listeners,
today we continue posting music we recorded last autumn during our workshop at Reuschberg Academy with our most beloved project MIRG.
This time you get live improvisations recorded at the kitchen as well as in the chapel (the grass is always greener, dylan, no tears and MIRG Basar), heavily edited by Stolle who has worked his way through hours of stuff.
As always, everybody plays everything, though you can bet it is Marcus playing frenetic percussion stuff, Member wailing on electric guitar and Stolle singing (mostly).
A special mention has to go to the ukulele Marcus brought with him, which we happily used in most of the sessions, as well as the handy pocket synths we are so fond of right now.
Enjoy!

STOLLE: bye bye 4-track

This is a new single by Stolle, celebrating my good old 4-track-taperecorder which is supposed to retire now, for I finally managed to get my first digital multitracker. I'm not quite sure yet if this will be an improvement, because I really loved recording tapes, the feel and sound of it - I guess I'm an analogue guy.
Side A is called bye bye 4-track and also features my new korg pocket synthesizer.
Side B, Down, comes from the first session of Ralf und Stolle, a new project. Ralf is an old friend from my hometown who started making music recently and played the breathtaking beautiful organ on this one.
Hope you like it!
luv, stollllllllllle

MIRG: Ghost-Track

Dear listeners,
today we are continuing with a new track from our most beloved project MIRG. This hour-long multitrackrecording is the result of a concept which aimed to feature the chapel of the Reuschberg Academy prominently. It was almost 20 years ago when Lay De Fear made their first sessions in this very place, we did not play there for several years and were really stunned by the outstanding sound of this room, as well a the spiritual vibes it has, so we did a great bulk of the sessions at this place, more recordings are to come soon.
So now, join us in experiencing unique Reuschberg Chapel Magic!
Get it here .

Luv, Stollllllle & Member

AMERICAN SON, by Stolle

This is a solo recording by Stolle, done live as a tribute to Lou Reed. Marcus and Member were gone shopping, looking for terrible things no one could possibly eat, ever, so I took the opportunity and recorded this thing.
After doing a basic drone on my Toy-Keyboard I established a groove with the Korg Monotribe, then messed around with the oscillators, went on to do two vocal loops and finally did a guitar freakout, trying to play like Lou did in his heyday.
Enjoy!
