This is not really an album (like with a topic, concept or similar) but more a collection of tracks from the same time period, hence the title.
The two parts of "Mind Over Matter" were produced with a laptop and headphones only, half of the tracks in a hotel in Frankfurt am Main, the other half in a hotel at the beautiful Schliersee in Bavaria.
I find these 2 hours and 20 minutes of music contain a certain amount of sadness, which is probably because I´m not at home, but only with a suitcase, the necessary stuff and my laptop. This opens up a special emotional space inside me, the feeling of not having a home, a safe place to be at and to retreat from the world.
Of course, this is vacation and besides that I always have a home in the transcendental and ethereal, but I´ve been temporarily homeless in this life, and the certain amount of sadness is probably an emotional memory from back then.
Thank you for reading, enjoy listening!
