METAMORPHOSIS - in the studio

Bettina Wauschke (tuba), Jakob Ilja (electric guitar), Elyas Khan (percussion), Gregor Fuhrmann (cello) and myself on guitar just finished recording “Deine Tränen” for the Metamorphosis project.

It’s the first time any of us has played together! Spending a day in the studio trying to find “our” sound was a challenge in itself … and well worth it!

METAMORPHOSIS - in the studio

Back in Berlin, I go down to the old NALEPA studios to meet Elyas Khan.

He has started to work on “Solitaire”. I love talking music with this guy, he’s so full of ideas, stories, tunes and philosophy, he is as close to a Gesamtkunstwerk as one can get … check out his mixing desk!
