We couldn't wait to give you a preview of what we will release in a few weeks, so here is a first track. The Lab session with Jochen Schrumpf was pure fun and inspiration. In the well-known "Lab" way of working, we started to play with each other without prior arrangements and set no limits to our creativity.

Caution! What you will hear is improvised music without any rules beyond the logic or inclination of the musicians involved. It may sound like fusion jazz, Avantgarde or noise to your ears, but listen deeper. There are stories hidden behind the curtain of your preception.

And why is this track named "Tears Of Gaia"?
According to the Gaia principle, living organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a synergistic and self-regulating, complex system that helps to maintain and perpetuate the conditions for life on the planet. Look around. There is something wrong. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life, the primal Mother Earth goddess. And it seems their children refuse the gift they were given.
