about

WORLD OF QUETZAL was an album I recorded in times (1992) where I had to somehow overcome a hard period in my life. No money for any kind of equipment. Hardly for living. I was desperate not being able to work on my music. As so many times in life I was lucky to find a small label not far from where I lived. CMS Rec., owned by Christoph Hausmann, a manager and musician and his companion Martin Stark a keyboard player. Two producers that gave me the chance to work on my ideas without any pressure.

Harald had dealt intensively with the topic of the Aztecs and worked out the specifications for this album. It was important to connect the roots of electronics with world music and the mystical meaning of the Aztec gods. First, various environmental noises were recorded in environment out and inside the studio rin order to create a basic mood. All percussive elements were recorded live by Harald. Nature sounds were also triggered via the drums.
