As a record release party for her brand new album, Doppelstern, Barbara Morgenstern will give another intimate and enthusiastically charged live performances at the Roter Salon in Berlin this October where she will be joined on stage by many of her collaborators including Justus Köhnke, T.Raumschmiere, Gudrun Gut and Tonia Reeh.
Three years after her previous English-language album „Sweet Silence“, Barbara Morgenstern is in possession of a marvellous new metaphor for a shining new principle for her work. The concept was actually a hint from Justus Köhncke, who appears on this pre-album EP „Beide“ right with the very first track „Übermorgen“ – thus forming a wonderfully bright double star with her. This vocal duet can truly be described as a physical phenomenon, which shall soon also accompany us in the ether, in other words: On the radio.
Then over to the next star, Robert Lippok, with whom Morgenstern has crossed paths on numerous occasions over the course of her career: They seem to dreamily revolve around each other elliptically. Their interaction on the piece „Scrambler“ therefore requires no words, as this electronic instrumental clearly shows.
“Gleich ist gleicher als gleich“ took shape in the studio of the musician Lucretia Dalt, previously of Barcelona, now in Berlin, and appears on this EP – like with „Übermorgen“ – in a longer version than on the upcoming album. Finally, „Kein Weg“ was created in the studio of Schneider TM, and is the most intense and kraut-oriented track on this EP.
Nine more of these double star manifestations will follow later this summer on the „Doppelstern“ LP, each of which originated in different studios, across continents and across neighborhoods. The mixes for all the tracks were completed by T.Raumschmiere, which brings high coherence to the most diverse of constellations. It holds together well – one might even say: Almost like a solar system.
