ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The cycle 'Magenta Emerald' - developed as trilogy - is a journey into the psyche and its contents are orientated to the concept of development novels of the idealism: Different layers of personalities, emotional worlds and live models are merged in one fictional person, who is developing by the search for sense - but here contrary to the classical examples without the goal of a morally defined and precise ideal. Musically "Magenta Emerald" is a mixture of music theatre and song cycle. The first part "Crisis" is about the adolescent longing for an Utopia, but it is also about doubts and faithlessness caused by the impossibility of those unrealizable illusions. And this contradiction in terms contains the central topic - the inner turmoil. The scenery is a fictitious coastal landscape, reduced to the essential. The never ending struggle of the extremes sea and land is used as a symbol of this inner conflict. Morus, the narrator of the story, dreams of his final and perfect Utopia, absolutely isolated from the world outside. In the first part the central figure, Magenta Emerald, tries to escape from that inner turmoil, but the protagonist becomes independent and she embroils the poet himself into the plot. So the dreamer is no more master of his dreams, at the end his Utopia fails and an indescribable ideal arises, an abstract and very private Utopia, which already fulfils itself in one's imagination. So there is no description of a perfect state like Plato or Thomas Morus did, but a single individual is shown under the impression of inner turmoil and brittleness of our time - in this case Magenta Emerald - who develops, passing ways and meanders, as a representative for a world model.
