Cryptix [Reworked] - Reflected Shadows [Reworked] EP

"Cryptix" was a Synth/Goth band, in which I played keyboard in the early 90s. Together with two friends of mine, we put together songs using synthesizers and drum computers and recorded them to tape. Around Y2k I came across those old recordings and developed the idea of re-recording them, using my current equipment and technology. Finally it took another 10 years until I actually did it and reworked six songs from our "Reflected Shadows" tape.

For our live shows I had produced individual intros, kind of sound collages containing noises, samples and sometimes hints to the songs we were about to play. Therefore I decided to make an intro for this little collection as well.

Common project of Ralf Beuermann (musician, actor, theatre director) and Ibo kai, which led to a number of pieces, ranging from remakes of existing songs from Beuermann´s (today non-existing) "Aquarius" project and completely deconstructed cover versions to totally crazy things with electronics, guitar and recitation of poems.
