Maike Zazie - Seismopsychollage [!7K Records 016 Promo]

Scheduled for release on the !K7 Music subsidiary !7K Records on March 20th, 2k20 is "Seismopsychollage", the new longplay outing created by German pianist and composer Maike Zazie Matern a.k.a. Maike Zazie. Drawn to oftentimes romantic piano etudes with a tender, (Neo)Classical and / or Chamber Music leaning attitude as well as inspired by literature and other lyrical works and the aesthetic idea of cut up / collage we see the young German artist creating a poetic dreamworld, built on a foundation of her own imaginative piano melodies paired with German lyrics of mostly naive and innocent nature whilst additional layers and fragments of text and speech appear, citing other voices and narratives, providing both a meta-level of conscious reasoning at times whilst at other points drifting way far into poetic realms. Quite an unusual album this that seems to be beamed into our reality from a more innocent past which could either be either defined by the innate curiosity of 70s hippie culture or esoteric healing and meditation movements springing to life in the 80s. Most fascinating, most unique, yet also most disturbing and hard to grasp or fathom with a logical, reality- and cyberreality-savvy mind of today.
