    • Recording The Forest (2009)
      • In summer 2009 i went into the forest with my guitar and my zoom h2 recording device to record an album called ‘Raw Timber’.

      • the basic idea was to bring my guitar, an item made from wood that also used to be a living thing, a tree, back in the days, back into the woods and play amongst her brothers, choosing this most appropriate environment to breathe new life into the dead material. the money raised with the sale of 50 handcrafted cds was donated for a rainforest project. – eftb

    • Postcards:
      • In the last few years I have travelled more than ever before in my life. Physically, in terms of seeing foreign countries, walking through wastelands, kissing new friends goodbye in distant airports, as well as mentally, gathering new experiences and insights.. and sometimes I managed to record those journeys, let some of those moments curdle into sound and song. those acoustic artefacts of different points in time and space now lie on my desk like postcards that I bought and lettered yet never sent. – eftb
