I’ve just released my new album “Ousia”. It came about in the past year 2020 that was probably extraordinary for all of us. I am happy about the diverse encouragement I have received so far for the musical results and I would be happy if it releases you from your current state for some time and lets you drift away. I also hope to be able to present all of this live in due course, but more about that another time. After the album there will be a few surprises, just drop by from time to time. The pre-orders will now be packed and sent in the next few days! Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the creation of this album and who support it!
With Ousia, Joachim Spieth presents the third long player on his label Affin. The follow-up album to “Tides” creates imaginary spaces, translates ephemeral impressions and condenses them into cinematic soundscapes. The eight pieces illustrate an intense and emotional journey that creates expressive relationships between external and internal perceptions. In addition, the piece “Mutuus” reveals an enchanting and so far unique collaboration between Markus Guentner and Joachim Spieth, after the two musically shaped Wolfgang Voigt’s first release of the compilation series “Pop Ambient” more than 20 years ago. The album will be available as a double 12 ”, a limited vinyl version including a printed booklet and digital formats.
