Barbara Morgenstern celebrates the release of her new album on Saatsakt this Febuary at Silent Green. The new record, In anderem Licht, was recorded by Guy Sternberg at Hansa Studio with an ensemble of strings, wind instruments, grand piano and a full band who will join her for this special release concert.
She mixes these ingredients in her special Barbara Morgenstern way. A kind of contemporary ambient pop in the tradition of John Cale, Mark Hollies or Robert Wyatt. This is exactly how the music will be presented live. After spending the last few years composing and performing theatre music with Rimini Protokoll, it is now time for the pop stage again. In the very best sense. Be there when she presents her epic minimalism for the first time as part of Sonic Morgue.
Hagen is a place of transit. A city in the Ruhr area that is regarded as the gateway to the Sauerland. As far as pop history in Germany is concerned, Hagen will leave a lasting impression forever: Nena, the Humpe sisters, Julia Hummer and last but not least Barbara Morgenstern. All deriving from Hagen. But as it goes for all transit cities, they all had to leave this place to refine their art and become famous.
Barbara Morgenstern moved to Berlin via Hamburg, got introduced to Gudrun Gut’s label Monika Enterprise via the „Wohnzimmer“-scene and quickly became a celebrated sensation with her unconventional sound between electronic, songwriting and folk. The pop experts hadn’t heard such enchanted music since the Canterbury sound (only the Canterbury scene didn’t know any techno yet and was quite a men’s club). It is not surprising that Barbara Morgenstern cooperated with her declared fan Robert Wyatt in 2008.
