produced by Manfred Eicher


I always have loved the city of Bremen. But I have only been there a few times apart from the look out of a train‘s window. I once wanted to be a student there – all the passionate left thinkers – but the lottery of fate chose Würzburg. One day, early in the 90‘s, I met Paul Bley in a big hotel, not far away from the „Weserstadion“. A very fine interview we had, and, en passant, he talked me into selling him my then famous Sennheiser microphone which had cult status among musicians. It didn’t take long to turn into a collector‘s item. But listening to „Ruins and Remains“ was not about nostalgia in the first place. Much more it has been (and will be for some time) a special variation on the experience of getting lost in music. The album was recorded in August 2021, at Sendesaal, Bremen. Don‘t even ask about the places it sent me.
