Between Harvest and Recording Studio - The fruits of a newly defined Artist Residence
SPRINGSTOFF releases Papenwohld Artist Residency No2 compilation.
The album features a variety of musical directions and blends: from sunshine, dance and joie de vivre by Alai K (Kenya), sociocritical lyrics by David Häußler aka form (D), Future Pop sung by Yule Post (D), a 90s pop Throwback by Yulie aka VEE 303 (D), cinematic instrumental music by the Hamburg pianist Tom Gatza, a series of electronic tracks by Berlin multimedia artist Valquire Veljkovic that invite you to dance, to shifted jazzy chords and bars by the Berlin Jazz saxophonist and composer Paul Berberich (D).
'Riddle' (released 15.03.2019 via Springstoff) - a driving relaxed neo-soul track and the first single of the compilation, fits perfectly into this versatile oeuvre. Composed by Christine Seraphine aka Sera Kalo (USA / D) and Jörn Bielfeldt aka JBXDR (USA / D), it is an attempt the result of the creative process wherein the unknown serves not as a barrier, but rather the starting point and incentive for the emergence of something new. Sera Kalo takes the familiarity of a simple pop frame and lush jazz harmonies to bring structure, direction and clarity to the story of a wondering mind looking for inspiration.
Releases are coming soon…
So happy to share the trailer for the documentary film about the Papenwohld Artist Residency No2 .
We are still speechless about the magical time we had during the 2nd Artist Residency in Papenwohld. We thank all who supported us, as well as all visitors on the day of the open door or at the final concert. Here is a small impression from our time in Papenwohld. We are in the middle of finishing all preparation for the releases. Updates will follow soon.
