Fjorden

Format: CD
Label: Monika Enterprise M16
Distribution: Morr Music
Distribution US: Forced Exposure

I was pleasantly touched by Barbaras debut album of autumn 1998 "Vermona ET 6-1". With organ as her main instrument, the work was like an homage to the Czech organ of the same name, through without the trash quality. In that album Morgenstern melded warm analog sounds from the past and nineties beats in a techno-design of song writing, home recording and electronica, without retro-lounge-cuteness either.
Afraid of musical borders? - not Barbara Morgenstern!
You could have called that work Indietronic, but the term didn`t exist at the time. Even now, two years later, it won`t fit. yet it comes to mind, because `Fjorden` has obviously been recorded with new equipment and new technique.
Still working out of her own studio, using sampler and sequencer in her instrumentation, Barbara Morgenstern tells us stories. Her wonderful, heartbreaking voice, adds context to the beats and sounds. "Fjorden" comes across as familiar & intimate.
This album is a clear step forward, without throwing the past overbard. "Fjorden", with its warm analog sound, is like a good friend visiting - rotating in your cd player. You are not alone. Barbara Morgenstern is there with her music. And it`s wonderful that she`s there!
