Information

DE: Mit Schwarzmond zeigt moonbooter zum ersten Mal seine dunkle Seite. Wie bereits auf „The Wave“ vereint das neue Album klassische elektronische Klänge mit der Neuzeit. Bewusst gibt Bernd seine Vorbilder im Booklet des Albums preis: J-M Jarre, VNV Nation, Daft Punk, Michael Cretu und Klaus Schulze.
Und tatsächlich fallen beim Hören geschmeichelte (?) Gemeinsamkeiten auf. Trotzdem trägt jeder Song die eindeutige Handschrift moonbooters. Und das ist auch gut so. Mächtige analoge Klanggebilde bauen sich stetig auf um dann plötzlich in sich zusammen zu fallen oder in einem weiteren Höhepunkt aufzugehen. Dominante Beats untermalt mit seidenweichen Flächen glänzen in den Ohren. Harte E-Gitarre neben sanften Beats mit vielen unterschiedlichen Melodien kann eben so nur moonbooter. Es scheint so, als hätte Bernd alle synthetischen Sounds der vergangenen 40 Jahre auf diesem Album vereint. Kleinste Details, hohe Dynamik und das Gefühl, selbst Teil der Musik zu sein, machen Schwarzmond zu einem besonderen Hörerlebnis. Ja, Schwarzmond ist ein „darkes“ Album. Aber richtig finster und eiskalt wird es nie. Wenn man die Nacht liebt, so muss dies auch nicht sein.

 

EN: With “Schwarzmond” moonbooter shows us his dark side for the first time. As on "The Wave", the new album combines classical electronic sounds with modern times. Bernd consciously named his idols in the booklet of the album: J-M Jarre, VNV Nation, Daft Punk, Michael Cretu and Klaus Schulze. And in fact there are several similarities. Nevertheless, each song carries the clear handwriting of moonbooter. And that’s how it should be. Powerful analogue sound configure constantly, then suddenly drop down into pieces or rise up to an other climax. Dominating beats accompanied by silky soft pads are shining in the ears. Hard electric guitar in addition to gentle beats with many different melodies is only moonbooters style. It seems as if Bernd had unified all the synthetic sounds of the past 40 years on this album. Many details, high dynamic sound and the feeling of being a part of the music make Schwarzmond a special listening experience. Yes, Schwarzmond is a "dark" album. But it never gets too dark and cold. If you love the night, this does not have to be.
