Ralf Krebs: classical guitar, electric guitar, effects, bongos, pandeiro, percussion Hans Georg Conrads: violin, viola on 'Summer' The basic idea is to incorporate my approach on percussion and electric guitar to accompany my solo guitar compositions and arrangements. Before I started to play the guitar I studied latin percussion. So I decided to dig out my expertise on bongos and pandeiro and recorded the percussion entirely on my own. As a student I experimented with digital delay and effects to produce ambient soundscapes on the electric guitar. The title tune Berlin is a reminiscence to this sound. Raymond Bossa is a reflection of Brazilian music, inspired by the excellent percussionists I played with in Berlin. Muerte Del Angel, Milonga Del Angel and Verano Porteno: What can I say? Except bow to the genius of Astor Piazzolla. Summer: This composition is originally released on my first record 'my room", but with the string arrangement by Hans-George it turned out to be a totally new tune. So I renamed it and put it on the CD. Ray's Space is an homage to virtual places. Prelude is by Francisco Tarrega, a piece every guitar student works on. I perform it on electric guitar with delay. This creates a truly new age feel. Estrellas: This title is an homage to my major influences: Al Di Meola and Astor Piazzolla. It contains the milonga 3,3,2 beat in the A-part and some 5\8 measures a la 'cielo e terra' in the interlude after the bridge. Club Sophie was composed for my quintet 'Lindroth & Sonntag'. I experimented with different scales around an A-tonality and voila: the wired head was born. Abandoned captures the feeling when you are left by a person you love, first the melancholy but later transforming into hope. Feel So Good: I listened to this title from the beginning of my musical life: I got the 'Hollywood bowl' recording at age 13 and it completely blew me away! This excitement has never disappeared through all the decades I listened to this recording. Petit Prelude: I was really touched by the French movie:'La Mari de la Coiffeuse' (France 1990) and composed the melancholic, chanson-like waltz. The intro and outro is a Lenny Breau harmonic technic, also one of my major influences.
