This CD is a compilation of live-openings by Markus Reuter, recorded during the spring European tour of The Crimson ProjeKCt. Originally this was not supposed to be released at all. Since the music pieces, which the virtuoso Stick Man Reuter conjures up on his Touch Guitar, but such a harmonious whole together, they have decided to make each up to the point where the two drummers Mastoletto and Tobias Ralph enter, an album. Thirteen venues, thirteen women's names for these tracks. "Kandi" is as spherical-electronic as an ambient Steve Roach piece and rushes along like a spaceship. "Patricia" could be the soundtrack to a mysterious occult thriller or David Lynch movie. In "Veronica" or "Michaela" a sawing electric guitar tone between Robert Fripp and Mike Oldfield is allowed to drive the soundscapes. The music is above all vibration, sounds that beat over you like electronic thunderclouds. Abstract sound paintings that capture you.
