Chuck Van Zyl has published a beautiful review of DISINTEGRATION on "" website.

Please read here:

Knowledge alone is flat and lifeless, but may become meaningful through the accumulation of experience over time. Bernd Kistenmacher will tell you that this path to knowing is long, and permits no shortcuts. His album Disintegration (62'46") offers eight electronic listening studies, informed by his decades long involvement in Spacemusic. Each piece exhibits a distinctive mood and atmosphere which keeps us well within a chilled space throughout this journey. Rhythms and slow beats do emerge in a few places, but the overall feel of Disintegration is that of contemplation. Beneath changeless constellations synthesizer strings build out and hold, as bass laden drones bulge with portent. Then later, like a spark in the open air, glittering modulations spray and dapple their sonic particles in echoing trails. The wheels are stilled, leaving room for the rushing of metal drones and slowed adagio synths. The ambiance softens, as the delicate lilt of an ascending voice reaches us from out of a diffuse celestial realm. Bernd Kistenmacher has learned how to reprogram his own mind. He forges together the vocabularies of technology and art, memory and music, literature and mathematics, electronics and emotion in his search for the perfect language - a cognitive language in which he can truly think. A language that is more expressive than anything we have before encountered. Waiting for a sign in the sky, or a word from the stars, Kistenmacher has taken the way of the thinker - and never loses sight of the cosmic wonders he is trying to capture, or of the nebulous mysteries his audience is trying to fathom. Disintegration can be as warm as the sun on the skin, or just as easily become like the dark light holding grinding galaxies. An exploration of sound mass, where the collective textures of instruments are treated as one single entity, his music breaks out with forlorn voltage.

Liebe Freunde,

am 21. Januar 2017 wird etwas besonderes passieren. Ich will nicht einmaliges sagen, denn ich hoffe, dass diesem Event noch weitere folgen werden. Am 21. Januar 2017 werde ich zum ersten Mal mit dem fantastischen Duo LICHTMOND im LWL-Planetarium in Münster auftreten. Das wird ein Abend, wie man ihn sich nicht bunter in einem Planetarium vorstellen kann.
Im ersten Teil des Abends werde ich solo auftreten und Musik meines kommenden Solo-Albums DESINTEGRATION vorstellen. Dazu wird das Planetarium all seine Register ziehen und Euch auf eine herrliche Reise durchs Universum mitnehmen.
Im zweiten Teil werde ich Euch LICHTMOND vorstellen. Giorgio und Martin Koppehele (aka Lichtmond und ihreszeichens Klassiklounge heroes) werden Ihr neues Projekt THE JOURNEY vorstellen. Alles mit Fulldome Animationen aus dem aktuellen BD-Release, in Surroundsound und, und, und...
Die Zugabe werden wir dann gemeinsam zur Musik von LICHTMOND bestreiten. Und Autogramme gibt es am schluß der Veranstaltung im Foyer an unserem Merchandising-Stand.

Was noch fehlt seid ihr. Kommt nach Münster und verpasst nicht dieses besondere Konzerterlebnis.

Hier geht es zur Website des Planetariums und zu den Tickets.

Wir zählen auf Euch. Bis bald

You can not imagine a more colorful and powerful event in a Planeatarium.

In the second part I will introduce you to LICHTMOND. Giorgio and Martin Koppehele (aka Lichtmond and also "Klassiklounge heroes") will introduce their new project THE JOURNEY. Everything happens with Fulldome animations from the current BD release, in surroundsound and, and, and ...

The encore will then be shared with the music of LICHTMOND. Signatures of us will be available at the end of the event in the foyer at our merchandising booth.
