released January 1 / February 1, 2016 | Materiaal Series, Part III & IV | This music takes you on an airy exploration in this piece composed in the moment and recorded live on the historical campus of Princeton University on WPRB’s Program ‘Music with Space’ on October 17, 2015.
Bernhard Wöstheinrich has an unmistakeable gift that shines brightly again in this piece, improvised and recorded live during his last US tour. Bernhard will take you along on a winding journey through his daydreams of celestial travel, then wandering through more Earthly city streets, searching… a moment in a swank nightclub, a glimpse of gritty intensity… then into an emotional inner journey of pure serenity. Come along and travel with Bernhard. You’ll like where he takes you.
Relax, listen and float along as a kite, floating lazily on a breeze near a serene lake. Let yourself stall, falter and fall momentary, and trust that Bernard will catch you and raise you even higher on the coming current of air.
Bernhard will not disappoint you nor let you fall.
