SCHAEFER "Mosaik 127":

Schäfer is the solo project of the Cologne-based musician Lukas Schäfer. Coming from playing Drums, he increasingly dealt with electronic sound generators and modular synthesis. With Mosaik 127, Schäfer presents an album with ambient music that convinces with sensual dynamics, contrasting depth and artistic independence. Chains of associations and mind games form the conceptual foundation. It is a mosaic – every single part is significant and has its origin in the architecture of the Church of Johannes XXIII situated in the Berrenrather Straße 127 in Cologne, Germany. It was here that the musician realised that ambient music would become an important part of his artistic work.

The album begins with Valentine, a four-tone steamroller that seems to come out of nowhere. Then the introverted Bolzano contrasts, followed by Still with its character-strong arpeggio and a fulminant kick drum. Bielefeld was created in collaboration with the writer Juliana Kálnay, and in the following Somerset Schäfer recalls his childhood holidays in the southwest of England and creates a shimmering soundtrack for flowing days. The finale is 1 for N.F., a piece inspired by the Berlin musician Nils Frahm.

Mosaik 127 is a concept album whose mosaic pieces fit together like the colorful glass elements of the windows in the Church of Johannes XXIII. This is also evident in the album’s artwork, which constitutes a strong visual layer in the overall design of Mosaik 127. The digipack with its recycled tray and 12-page leporello booklet creates a generous haptic added value that literally plays into the hands of fans of analogue music and artwork.
