LP version. Milky glass stands for a semi-transparent, fragile barrier causing a diffuse glance onto life. It is about force, obsession, excess, consciousness, evolvement, liberation, reconciliation, inner conflicts, accomplishments, and the intercourse with these subjects that were decisive for the genesis of "Glass". The debut album of Aparde, Glass, is the attempt of a stylistic manifestation. Paul Camillo Rachel (Aparde) was able to give back the liberty to his musical output that he consciously subordinated, limited, and aligned. Glass sounds like a breakout; it's offensive, with deeper insight and attack, and passion. An unmistakable arrangement and atmosphere, accomplished through the usage of only self-recorded material. A kind of urban and conceptual field recording of sounds in all kinds of environments, selected and sorted by themes. Thus, for the title Glass, different kinds of glass were acoustically combined with other materials. Selected analog instruments and a reduced use of software resulted in a homogenized, warm, and classical, but specific character; Crystalline, organic percussion, vivid surfaces, sudden rhythms, and extent atmosphere, which distinctively scatter throughout and complement the stereoscopic sound image. The lone voice was out in a stronger focus. After a diffuse phase and adjacent relocation, finally resulting in the availability of their own room for musical and personal development, the songs here originated between the end of 2015 and mid-2016. Each song went through a lengthy process of development and many underwent a radical preadaptation around the start of 2017. The acoustic pattern of Glass became more and more distinct. The album was then finalized an early summer of 2017 in an old cottage in the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte, a very unique lake district in the north of Germany. The homonymous title track summarizes the atmosphere of the album in a comprehensible way. It is also the oldest title on the album. The topic was visually translated by literally looking through a milky glass: intertwined limbs of elusive bodies, diffuse and bizarrely aesthetic. "Mouth" features Anne.
