Special request:

For our young friend Anna it was the first encounter with soundmakings of this kind.
She got intrigued.
We kindly ask soundgatherers to introduce her to some more
by sending her mp3´s on a cd.

Of course you can send chocolate and flowers to all the ladies to show your appreciation
BC is a lady; Andrea isn´t, but his girlfiriend is.

The guys smoke cigars.

This cd

Was recorded in the artist residence of the Circolo Cosmopolita Allosbando at Castiglione del Terziere in Tuscany (Italy) between the 10th and 19th of May.

The editing and mastering was done in Innsbruck (Austria) between 1st and 5th of June.

are free to do so. We kindly ask you to contact us.

Internet/radiomakers can use tracks and send it on air. Please let us know when and where the ether was filled with our sounds.

Should this cd fall into the hands of a representative of a big corporation than also he/she is free to use it for private use.

Ours is: big corporations should not be greedy.

Behind the tracks

The äppfelchenstory on willkommen im kasparhauserhaus was inspired by
the movie Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle - Kaspar Hauser by Werner Herzog in which Kaspar Hauser (played by Bruno S, who has a very typical voice) got into a filosofical dispute about the free will. Kaspar finds out about a kluges äppfelchen – a clever apple – hence the reference in the story to not such a clever apple who got married to a knife and lost its skin.

The voice on liebe and kleine haustiere is by Barbara Gessner.
The phone she was connected to and the words she read were Rinus´.

Toilet music is specially composed for use in a public place, by which we mean the bathroom.

You only need to put two speakers in the bathroom, connect them to a cd-player which has a mp3-function. Put the repeat-function on and let go.

Those who are interested in a composition exclusively for their bathroom,
should contact us or somebody else or eat beans every day.

Chacha is the cat singing along with us.

We can send a more detailed information
on the making of ciao jazzclub
We don´t include this information here because it will change
the image of the sounds.
