about

Unshriven is a concept album, or, more precisely, a station album: 11 tracks shape 11 stations. Two parallel levels (reality and metaphor) tell the stories of two travellers. The first level reveals the story of the 17-year-old, seriously ill girl. The second level is the accompanying metaphor: it tells of Sputnik's journey through colours, emptiness and darkness, of its homesickness and its attempt to return home. 
An ambivalent construct of hopeful, melancholic melodies and raw, destructive energies creates the emotional sonic images that make the last journey of life comprehensible. Distinctive ambient sound layers, acoustic leitmotifs and dynamic sounds from time and space are accompanied by the voiceover of thanatologist Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross.

Track Name: Vanish
beyond reason
beyond time
beyond my mind
pure like we started and
tainted as we leave - leave the spot
Track Name: Fellow Traveller
The promise of something thats beneath the clouds
My mind is twisting as I touch the gloom
Dead frequencies call me to come home
With a glimpse of an eye gone forever
I wander through dust I’m on my way to start
To see what’s before to see what’s coming
An anchor dropped as I started to live
Solar waves welcome me as their fellow traveller
Track Name: Primus Inter Pares
From the depths of space I saw myself
With darkened eyes I feel the shadows of my past
The dark matter coats me
Inside this astral cocoon I transform, becoming cosmic dust
Transmitters sending my sound of solace
My waves are absorbed by your burrowing heart
Transmitters sending my sound of solace
My waves are absorbed by your burrowing heart
I slowly renew myself
To live again
In your hearts
Will be my shelter
To stay and evolve
Forevermore you‘ll float with me
Like falling leaves
Love flows as my breath fades
First among equals
Track Name: Stay
Why stay
No reason to do so Stay
Please Keep the pain away
Tall and stable
Long ago
Broken self
Ruffled ego
Trapped in skin
Chasing secrets
Pretended love
All i need
Why stay
No reason to do so
Why stay
Keep the pain away
I stay
The reason to do so
Is you
Track Name: Mère
This world's a treasure but now I’m leaving
In the rays of light I swallow the cracks of the sky
I’m on my way home [3x]
From universe heights
I've descended to say
I searched and found what I am
As they accept - me as one of them
Track Name: Unshriven
Falling
The sky is not the limit
Peace, my heart
Nurtured by the endless dark
I think how my shape will rise
The soul that asked for shelter will forgive
Shelter
Standing in line with the ones you loved
Shelter
Saying goodbye to a world that fades
You
Running away from the ones I loved
I drop my
I drop my heart, unshriven!
