Absence. The Moments in which you are not mentally connected to the surrounding world - this is where the album is supposed to take you. It is a place for you to get out of your daily routine and take a moment for yourself. I always enjoy these moments, when you are completely disconnected, can be on your own and just enjoy a deeply satisfying feeling of ease. I hope this Album can take you somewhere similar.

Everything you hear is just one guitar and almost exclusively one takes except for tracks 7, 10 and 12 which are looptracks and arranged for this album.

Recorded at Soundrange Studios, Bendorf, Germany.

Guitars used: Andreas Cuntz CWG23s acoustic guitar
Aristides Instruments 080 electric guitar

This album wouldn't have been possible wothout the help and support of many beautiful people. Special thanks go to my parents who are always there for me, believe in what I do and support me in every possible way.

Thank you to my brother who is the best musician I ever had the pleasure to play with and who is the most encouraging critic of my music. Thank you Katja, Andreas Cuntz for building me this outstanding instrument, Pascal Langelaar and the whole Aristides crew, Berthold, Hermann, Julian, Likhwa, Tobi, Bodo, Christian, Anton, Jacky, Matt and all my bootcamo buddies, Brian and Daniel, Alina, Lea, Sarah, Markus, Joshua, Bob Gore for always beeing there although you are so far away, and Thomas Sieb.

And last but not least thank your for purchasing this album, your support means a lot to me. It took me over three years now to release it, with many ups and downs along the way, but finally you are holding something in your hands that I can say I am standing behind it with all my confidence. Showing one's own compositions to someone else always means showing them a very personal part of you. So I hope you enjoy this album and have a good time with it.

All the best, Janek
