this gig was a bit strange coz a shadow was hanging over it like a haze in the morning.two days before Huw Lloyd Langton has died and I wrote the same day the gig was a new song which was dedicated to him named *Frozen Tears*. was the only time in my whole life that I was singing a song with tears in my eyes. And also I have played a song with german lyrics. *Die Augen der Sonne* (the eyes of the sun) which I wrote a long time back instead the liner notes of the same named own book with short stories.
And I've played with a new sound system; used five similar amps for the synthie sounds and also a stereo P.A. for the drum machine and the vocals. was difficult to record it so I used four microphones which were placed somewhere in the room; on stage and also in front of the stage.and also lineouts of two mixing desks. Maybe I was a bit louder as usual...and maybe a bit stranger as usual. Had a bad cold and needed a Grog before I could start to sing. the sound of the songs on this album is untouched that means I was only adjusting the volume of the single channels before I merged them into a stereo signal. If I think to some of the gigs I had in 2012 in France I think this solution was much better as leading the signal out of the mixing desk into the recorder.
Another shadow on my soul was the passing of Andrew O'Hara, an old friend who has died November 20th also of Cancer; two days after his own farewell party where I had played also a long set. so this album is full of dedications; *Frozen Tears* for Huw Lloyd Langton, *For Andrew* for Andrew O'Hara, *Silvermoon* for Douglas Adams, *Atomic Sun* for Sonia Mota and Helia Oliveira, *Neptun's Agony* for the whales and their long dying, *Welcome to my heart* and *Out of the dark* for Raven, one of my Muses, *The Reign the King lived in for a long long time* is dedicated to Syd Barrett, the King of Spacerock and *The Foggy Dew* to Maire-God bless her!!
Also very unusual was thatI have also played two songs from an album which was before 2000. *Black Swan* was originally on *Armageddon rock* and *Broken Dreams* Originally from *Music to wake the death*, both were released in 1999.
Also I have played some songs of albums which aren't finished yet; still working on the *elements*
After the gig I felt tired and a bit nurned out, had some wine with the organiser and slept in a hotel.. drove back when I felt well enough to do that.
It was the 78th gig of Schroedinger's Cat that year and a week later there was the last one in Solothurn, Switzerland. think after all those gigs I have found my special sound which I call *Symphonic Kozmikrock* based on Synthieguitar with two synths and spherical noises from outer space. So Schroedinger's Cat is going on- it seems forever.Even I know nothing lasts forever, It took me 9 years to come back with full power. In February Schroedinger's Cat is excisting 24 years..And I feel like playing for another time like this. Have fun ;-) wherever and whatever ypou are, if human, ant or Alien or whoelse. Love and Peace for all of us!!!
