    about / credits

    about
    Simon Spiess has already released four trio albums, one of them with meta records (“After All”, 2013). This time, on “Reflections For Future”, he ventures out on his own, just him and his saxophone.
    While living in Paris in 2014 Simon Spiess was practicing a lot in a church near his apartment. Being in a new environment Spiess reflected a lot on music and being a musician. The result can be heard on "Reflections for Future". Imaginary images, recollections and visions were the basis for many tracks on the CD which prompted the compositions or free improvisations. The CD was recorded in a church in Mannheim which Spiess chose for its acoustics: the church room ideally helped bring to life his idea of sound development interchanging with breathing and silence.

    about(german)
    Simon Spiess hat bereits vier Trioalben veröffentlicht, eines davon bei meta records (“After All”, 2013). Mit „Reflections For Future“ wandelt Simon Spiess auf Solopfaden. Als Spiess 2014 für einige Zeit in Paris lebte, übte er viel in einer nahe bei seiner Wohnung gelegenen Kirche. Durch die neue Umgebung angeregt, dachte Simon Spiess viel über Musik und das Musikerdasein nach. Das Ergebnis davon ist auf „Reflections For Future“ zu hören. Imaginationsbilder, Erinnerungen und Visionen bildeten den Ausgangspunkt für viele der Kompositionen wie auch der freien Improvisationen. Die CD wurde in einer Kirche in Mannheim aufgenommen: der Kirchenraum war für Simon Spiess ideal geeignet, seine Vorstellung von Klangentwicklung, Atem und Stille zu verwirklichen.
