2006 hatte ich einen riesen Crash und so sind ein Haufen meiner Tracks leider für immer verloren gegangen und die Kopien die ich auf DVDs gemacht hatte waren nicht mehr lesbar Nun habe ich von der Frau meines verstorbenen Cousins, die CDs, die ich für ihn gebrannt hatte wieder bekommen. Die Qualität der Tracks sind nicht besonders, da ich 1998-2002 noch nicht soviel Erfahrung hatte, wie man einen guten Mix macht

Empfehlung: MARQUETTE – Into The Wild

MARQUETTE - Into The Wild

Studio Album, released in August 2020

This is the newest release in the PPR series of “introducing accomplished german music artists to a wider audience”.

Although Markus Roth is by no means a new or unknown name in his native prog scene. As keyboard player and occasional guitarist he is a member of not one, but two bands, both very different in style: Horizontal Ascension (melodic prog/rock) and Force of Progress (instrumental prog/metal/jazz fusion).With his third outfit MARQUETTE, he combines the styles of the other two bands, giving a harder edge to the tracks featuring vocals and reducing the number of notes played in the instrumental tunes, thus making Marquette more accessible to a “mainstream” prog audience. While the 2015 debut “Human Reparation” was a two-man project with a number of guests, INTO THE WILD has become more of a group effort, with Markus Roth still composing all the songs, but vocalist Maurizio Menendez providing lyrics.

INTO THE WILD was inspired by the life of Christopher McCandless, who travelled through the US with minimal equipment and no money, in a quest to become one with nature, but found a tragic death in the Alaskan wilderness. Story and music stand as „an example of the consistent search for oneself, for one’s own identity“ (Markus Roth).

© Bam Dorner Productions 2010 In der Zeit hatte noch einigermaßen gut Flöte gespielt, was aus heutiger Sicht nicht mehr behaupten kann. Müsste täglich 2-3 Stunden üben, aber dazu fehlt mir die Lust und Energie. Man wird nicht jünger —————————————— At that time he had still played the flute reasonably well, which from today’s point of view cannot be said any more. I would have to practice 2-3 hours a day, but I lack the desire and energy for that. One does not get younger
