Bruno Amstad in memoriam!

In the midst of the preparations for our upcoming tour in Switzerland, our singer Bruno Amstad unexpectedly passed away an January 25, 2024. 

For over 25 years he was an integral part of our musical universe, with his voice, his sparkling creativity and his generous heart. He leaves behind a huge gap, both as a musician, as a human being and as a central part of Garden of Silence.

Our first impulse was: "We're canceling everything." After many conversations, despite our deep sadness, we have decided to carry on with Garden of Silence as a tribute and out of gratitude for our precious time together. Especially in these times, we want this music to be a source of hope.

Bruno is irreplaceable. It was immediately clear to us that we had to find new sonic facets to translate the music. 

We are truly grateful that Karin Streule and Klaus Gesing could join us at such short notice and will be taking these new paths with us! Both are outstanding artists who, each in their own way, have a deep connection to Garden of Silence.

We warmly invite you to join us for a special evening. 

Let's come together in a celebration of music and life!

Garden of Silence - Video documentation

I am very happy and also proud to be able to announce the new beginning of this project featuring some of my favourite musicians and long-term collaborators. 10 years after the intended premiere we could finally present this music in its entirety and celebrate the legacy of a truly unique artist. Watch this short documentation of the rehearsals and concerts - and stay tuned for more!

Solo - new live video released

Very excited to be a part of the inspiring platform Live Music From Sweden. A single camera, handheld recording of my miniconcert at the "Swedish Jazzbrunch" during Jazzahead 2022. Filmed by Mårten Nilsson under the old wooden roof at Kito Vegesack (DE).

In the light of all that is going on in the world around us, it is such an immense privilege to be able - and allowed! - to meet an audience in concert!
I can only hope that music has the ability to reach deeply beyond (hu)man-made borders of gender, race, religion, nations, economics or politics. 
Aspiring to make every note count and to create and share beauty on this planet.
