autumn in the city

in this summer's late afternoon, we say bye bye for a while
with a last show in zurich on october 8th at bogen f at the three label night of ikarus / oh sister / a tree in a field records, sharing stage with yuri member and wavering hands.
facebook event
bogen f

there's a lot of talking about music, mantras, tapes, diapers, dreams, books, luke skywalker, raclette, and a silent quest for the right tone for the right words.

but then I find that it's best to -- leave it alone -- for a while.

hope to see you on october 8th, refugees welcome.



we're playing at el lokal zürich on the 20th of june. hope to see you there!

I was asked to contribute a song to the zhdk master publication of my fellow transdisciples barbara naegelin, magnhild fossum and patricia nocon. 'bewegig' is the result of an experiment on a associative writing about movements, featuring jonas zollinger on bass synth and vincent glanzmann on everything else. we recorded and mixed this on two nights in early may. click on image below for a listen, download on bandcamp.

27.06. luzernerfest, radio 3fach bühne
31.07. zur plage der nation, radio stadtfilter, aussichtsterrasse bäumli winterthur
14.08. festival arcades sion

'oh so d'höll' was written and performed and recorded and mixed on two days in may 2014 by mr home alone doomenfels. just like in the good old days.
