album info

« With just a couple strokes he takes the audience to a shady, magical forest where even the most incredible visions can come true. » quoted der Bund about pianist Peter Zihlmanns performance. True to this motto, he and his musical companions Patrick Sommer (b) and Andreas Wettstein (dr) take their listeners on their latest album How about life ... on mars?" right from the first bars on a journey into their own multi-faceted world of sound. While writing their songs, they were inspired by the current hype surrounding Mission Mars, the ambitious aspirations by several organizations to colonize the Red planet. Just like the journey to the moon in the 60s, this mission is representative of mankind's irrepressible urge to completely devote themselves to dreams and imagination and to strive for their fulfillment at any cost. However, is it not the  although sometimes completely transfigured  idea of something unsatisfied or unfulfilled that is much stronger than the actual experience of it? Does not the fulfillment of a dream incorporate the simultaneous destruction of this illusion? Or to put it in other words: Would Karl May have been able to write his novels of the Wild West if he had ever really been to America? True to this motto, the three Trojans choose to remain faithful to their earthly existence in order to focus all the more on musically exploring their own dreams and those others while keeping in mind that it is probably best to let them be illusions.
