Description

    Stephan Micus is an extraordinary musical traveller, exploring the world, collecting instruments and then creating his own musical worlds from them.

    This is his 23rd album for ECM and on each one he composes the tracks, plays and overdubs them to create unique and exquisite pieces of chamber music.

    The ten tracks on ‘White Night' particularly rely on the sound of various sub-Saharankalimba (thumb pianos) and the oboe-like Armenian duduk. There are two purely solo tracks, ‘All the Way' on a kalimba from Botswana and ‘The Moon' on Armenian duduk, while ‘Fireflies' has 22 overdubs of Indian whistles, Micus's voice and other instruments.

    "I dedicate this album to the moon which has always been a source of magic in many cultures," says Micus. "Music too is a source of magic which is where the two connect."

    Aside from his 14 string guitar, Micus plays instruments from Armenia, Tibet, India, Egypt, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, Botswana, Namibia and Ethiopia, most of them in combinations never heard before.
