Hub Hildenbrand, guitarist and composer from Berlin, calls his new CD 'Heimat' "audio film". You can hardly describe it better. What can be heard here in terms of associative music, in terms of sensual sound images, goes far beyond the usual concept of a trio. One must praise Hildenbrand unreservedly for having the courage to create this acoustic kaleidoscope, for the sheer limitless imagination that makes this cycle of artful instrumental short stories possible. Hildenbrand is a jazz guitarist, but does not use the typical clichés of the genre on this recording, but rather lives out his penchant for oriental sounds. The result is a musical concept that has never existed before: jazzy openness, spirited outbursts, collective improvisations, sound collages, long melody arcs intoned by guitar, bass and oud, harmoniously combined with pictorial motifs, alienated instrument sounds, shimmering Sound sculptures, mystical ostinatos, oriental microtonality. 'Heimat' tells a story, a dream, a journey through life. This recording is a total work of art that uses the structural means of modern film - flashbacks, overlaps, montages, dream sequences - to give the music such a comprehensible multidimensionality that you are fascinated by the listening pleasure and come out of this experience strengthened and inspired.
