Postcard #3: Songs for the Breathless

Album Description

Cologne. A room. Over time I collected quite a bunch of instruments. There are strings to be plucked and wooden sticks to blow air into, things to be hit and things to be shaken, millions of ways to set some kind of material into motion, to make another resonate with sound. If people ask me which was the first one I picked up, I tell them it was the recorder. But actually, if I want to be precise, there was another one before. In fact, the first cords I ever made vibrate were right in my throat, the first body
I made resonate my own. Before I could even think of ways to hold or play another instrument, I had already discovered I was equipped with one: a voice. It still took a long time to get to know it and befriend with it. You have to go through the unsettling, dissociating experience of hearing your recorded voice for the first time, and believe me, you won't like it. You have to face its flaws and maybe learn to use turn them into benefits. Finally, at a time when the weight of my guitar would feel wrong in my hands and the strings of my banjo were only alienating, I sat down in a corner of my bed, stripped of all musical protheses, and decided to finally attempt to make as much use of my one very own instrument as possible. Over some time, a little collection of purely a-capella songs evolved and is now being released into the world. credits released 12 December 2012 Written and recorded, mixed and made by Julia Kotowski
