|Martin Kohlstedt Tag Limited Vinyl LP
At first Martin Kohlstedt wanted to be an inventor, after that an astronaut and later physicist. Now he is a musician and recorded a solo piano album. "Tag", the german equivalent for day, signifies a haven, a desire and announces musically what will come next. It is similar to a cinematic play and determines itself by the drive for definition and clarification. After lessons in interactive piano, composed film musics, connections to several projects of the Zughafen (Erfurt) and expeditions into electronic music together with the Marbert Rocel collective, Martin Kohlstedt released his first solo album "Tag". It is an intimate insight into the nights, in which the musician came to terms with all the occurences of his life. Reduced to one piano, sketchily painted compostions and emotional landscapes came into existence. The beauty of his detail-arranged figures, the barren mathematical shaping of individual sequences and an extremely minimal approach, turn into an undertow. "Tag" is motion and super slow motion equally.
