"And here she is: my first solo CD Fades was created in the autumn/winter of 2004 with the finishing touches added this past spring. Initially I had no aim to publish these tracks and the idea to release them on an album only emerged towards the end of production when I listened to all ten tracks successively. Over the years my understanding of the word 'fades' changed and lost its connotation of vanishing love: a DJ mixer has a crossfader and a channel fader, sounds fade in and out and bam! All of a sudden fades were the life and soul of the party. So here are ten songs: often fragile and melancholic, somewhere between techno and indie rock, outlines and pop, with pathos and humour, at home with both the Siberian vastness and German narrowness, rooted in the high life of metropolitan Berlin and the dolce vita of provincial Regensburg. My brother Hannes plugged in the Moog, I unpacked my guitar and bass and my machines marched along with the tunes. Have fun listening!"
