one of my favourite places in stuttgart. busy and romantic, sweet and dirty as well.
2. backyard memories (12:37)
children love to play in my backyard, bringing back my own childhood. asking myself
with roedelius “gibt es sie wirklich die zeit, die zerstörende?“
3. westside, 4am (5:49)
open the window in a sleepless night. feel that emptiness inside.
4. schwarzfahren (8:45)
the trains in stuttgart are always in time but very expensive.
5. schwabtunnel (14:32)
connects the west with the southside. very old and with strange resonances, love
6. sonett (4:08)
a short poem at the end. it’s about my itchy feet.
the urban tapes (2012)
all tracks recorded live onto two track between march and may 2011 with a diy modular
synthesizer in my room in stuttgart/germany. guest appearance from my trusty philicorda
organ on track 1. field recordings for track 2 and 3 done out of my kitchen window.
mastered by jochen stegmeier.
