MOSAIC Fensterverse Und Nachtgespinste CD
“Fensterverse und Nachtgespinste” is an expressionistic EP by MOSAIC which mirrors Valkenstijn’s wide-ranging taste in music. He cites EA80 and Einstürzende Neubauten as his most important influences, who on this record are cited and re-imagined in a most unique way. Breathing an air of urbanity and contemporariness, all songs included on this record are musical interpretations of poems by Cologne-based writer Ulrike Serowy. Serowy’s poetry is infused with a rough romanticism which can only sprout on the threshold between reality and imagination, between this world and the world behind the veil. Her language, both dreamy and compelling, invokes images of urban and non-urban landscapes which have found their aural inkarnations in Valkenstijn’s haunting compostions.
