Pressetext:

Seit frühchristlicher Zeit begleiten in der abendländischen Welt Szenarien vom Ende der Welt und dem sich anschließenden neuen Reich die Vorstellungen vom menschlichen Dasein. Wesentliche Inspirationsquelle war hierfür die Offenbarung des Johannes.

Weltuntergangsphantasien und ihre bildlichen Darstellungen waren in allen geschichtlichen und kunstgeschichtlichen Perioden aber auch Metaphern, die aus aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Zuständen heraus genährt wurden. Darin wurden Ängste artikuliert und in Bilder gebannt, es wurden aber auch Zukunftsvisionen entwickelt. (…weiterlesen)

I present to you: MK_ultra: “MIND THE GAP”

MK_ultra - MIND THE GAP - CD cover

Producing this album was a pain and a bliss at the same time, and you can hear that, I believe. It took me 3 years. Parts of it where recorded in Poland just before a very intense time in my life and it seems this album reflects these very trying experiences I had thereafter. Initially thought of as a 2nd part to the antecedent album-maxi-ep “The Rift” it more and more turned into something more conceptual. It became a story, a dark fairytale and it is supposed to be listened to in one go, as an album – old school. And even if its mood is often grim, it tries to get to a point of peaceful acceptance of the beauty of our existence – it has a very simple message I guess: “Things will not last forever, so do not waste your time and energy.”

I want to thank adamned.age, Thomas, Yola & Thiemo for helping making this possible, and I dedicate “to Kate” to Katja Becker, “lost at sea” to Yola Icho and “this mans story” to myself and all people who dare to make mistakes in their lives. Mostly I thank Sulamith, whom I love, for her beautiful pictures and her patience.

U9

U9 (2 KATE)

Filmed in the underground & subway during the severe frost period of the 2012 winter in Berlin. Temperatures dropped to minus 15° Celsius during that time. Many Homeless people (nearly) froze to death, while government buildings stayed empty, heated to a cosy 20° C – for nothing.
