…living in and dreaming of…

about

The Songs on the album “The addicted” have for the most part a longer history. First recorded in a home-recording studio in 2009, they have changed their face over the years until they were recorded in 2017 and 2018 with Emilio Madeo on double bass and Gustavo Telesmanich on drums in Rosario, Argentina. Some of the songs have a more recent history and arose while on bicycle trips, about which you can read in the blog section. The recordings were made in the house of Emilio and at the Long Play Records (Rosario, Argentina) by Martín Valci.

 

The Line-up of the recording:

Emilio Madeo: double bass

Gustavo Telesmanich: drums

Matthias Erdmann: guitar & vocals

Kimey Gómez: saxophone (“Smile”, “What brings you here?” and “Queens and kings”)

Rocio Giménez López: piano (“Living in and dreaming of”)

Andrea Passerini: vocals (“Queens and kings”)

Francisco Batista: solo guitar (“The addicted”)

 

If you’d like to support future recordings, you can purchase the songs at bandcamp (coming soon).

This site is a place where you can read about a world tour by bicycle. There were concerts along the way and you can view the route here:

Berlin – Sydney: 2009 – 2012
Mexico – Argentina: 2013 – 2015
Tour d’Europe, Lisbon to Edinburgh: 2018 together with Andrea Passerini who also participated on the album on the song “Queens & kings”.

 

Why this blog is called “living in and dreaming of”:

I once wrote following lyrics  to a song:

“Heaven can wait ’cause i have hardly enough

of this world i am living in and dreaming of”

The world you are living in and the world you are dreaming of.

The bridge between the realist and the optimist.

The need to understand what there is and the corage to belief what there might be.

The lines in between the two are blurred and these worlds are interconnected and interacting.

    Hei Matthias
    Wow, du bist ja schon um einiges weiter gekommen! Fährst du als nächstes nach Oman, und dann mit dem Schiff nach Mumbay, oder weisst du überhaupt welchen Weg du gehst?
    Ich erinnere mich immer wieder gerne an unsere gemeinsamen Tage von Griechenland nach Istanbul. Und natürlch den Halumnikäse 🙂
    Viel Freude und einen Schutzengel wünsche ich dir
