The ability to manipulate temporal dimensions in a rehearsal space or studio recording allows the musician to seek and create a specific form of perfection. To seek this perfection is to be critical of yourself and your fellows. Repetition. Correction. Manufacture.

At the live performance it’s all different. Everything changes. Shortly before the tension awakens. It follows you as you take centre stage; quietly murmuring ‘There’s only one chance‘. As the music begins the tension shifts shape! Instead an energy weaves through the musicians forming them into a well oiled machine. Every member plays at full throttle, the energy reverberates through the audience; we feel it in a dynamic symbiosis of musician, audience and sound. It is joyful, intense and alive. It is live music at its best. Recorded live straight into analogue format this special release contains no post production editing. 

The lights fade, tension dissolved; the energy begins to swirl. We instinctively know it’s going to be a very special recording. This Studio Konzert is our interpretation of this delicate symbiosis; our own humble attempts to capture the extraordinary fleeting wildness of the live performance. It remains a dream of every musician to do so.
