MELOPHILIA I – Dawnsongs

This album has a long history, as I wrote some of the tunes already in schooltime, others as a student. In autumn 2006 my brother became father of his first daughter, and I decided to record some of those tunes as lullabies using a software piano. I gifted them to the parents as well as to other family members.
Though they all liked the music and its atmosphere and ordered a lot of copies to gift them to their friends in turn, I disliked the sound of the recording somehow. I found it too clean; gentil, but unbroken in a way. A record label in Cologne offered me to publish the album, but in the end I bottled it up.

About 12 years later I began to play some of the tunes in concerts and noticed that the music touched me in the same way it did then and the audience loved the pieces as well. In the meantime I had found new ways of arranging my recordings, and I had the idea to publish those tunes alongside with other pieces focussing on melody in th same way, so it became the first album of the Melophilia cycle.

I treid to play all the arrangements as simple as possible to let just the tunes speak for themselves. I hope they speak to you as well.
