Dear friends and listeners,
I'm really proud to announce my first release on VKRS Dissonance netlabel. It's also the first release on Dissonance, which is really awesome. Thanks Kev and Darragh for this honour!

But the MOST IMPORTANT thing is, that ALL revenues of this release will be proceeded to the Japan Red Cross Relief Fund!

Unfortunately they guys are experiencing troubles with their website and in order of keeping up the fundraising for Japan, I will sell it here. It's the same price as on VKRS and of course, all proceedings will go straight into the donation pool for the Red Cross via VKRS.
Purchase this 3-track/20-minutes EP for JUST 1 EURO and help the Japanese people. Every support is welcome!
Words about the EP:
The catastrophic earthquake in Japan in March 2011 was an uninvited inspiration for the three songs on this EP. We go backwards in time: "Phantom Plant" is what will happen to Fukushima, either as a ruin or a grave in a concrete coffin.
25 years ago, this is what happened to the sovjet nuclear power plant "Lenin Number Four" in Chernobyl. Everybody was shocked and angry, but no change in paradigms have been noticeable.
Why? Because politicians, economy and we, the consumers, demanded for cheap power and big profit. Everything was justified with a supposed insignificant "Restrisiko" (German euphemism for "remaining risk"). Maybe we really believed or wanted to believe, but reality is not negotiable and now we have to deal with another phantom of our civilization for thousands of years.

IMPORTANT audiophiles info: the tracks you hear on this page or in a Bandcamp player widget are (intentionally) mutilated to death by a very very poor mp3 encoding. The original audio files, which you can download after your purchase, sound much better. If you don't have any money to spend, just e-mail me and I'll send you a free download link for the album.

There's one thing that keeps me making music: It makes me happy.
This understanding was covered up by many irrelevant hopes and ambitions. Such as fame, acknowledgement, pride, earning money etc. Or opinions of how music has to be or what it should be good for. Nonsense.
Music must make you happy.
