The music on ‘The Garden’ was created with the Super 8 films (https://youtu.be/IdHePjYqu-A) by independent movie director Derek Jarman (1942-1994) in mind. These films show Jarman at his most visually courageous and creative, using prisms, filters and superimposition to produce rich colour and artistically bold compositions. The transient images, isolated like paintings, are the essence of Derek Jarman and his visual vocabulary.
‘The Garden’: tribute to a great artist.

‘A Hereditary Monarchy’ is made of a classic piano music with distorted microphone. Complex and multi-level qualities contrast the grand piano melodies. The six movements of this album merge a decadent interwar feeling with an electrified dystopian ambiance.
“…reminds me of the world wars and the hereditary socialization problems of people. Like an innocent person in a war. Like a child who does not understand the world and his parents. It means for me that an end of a classic closed community, the healthy thoughts fighting with the narrow minded scene or a hopeless and neverending sadness.” argues Gergely.
The Reisebüro86 is a deep, sensitive and personal approach of the noise-soundart. Always experimental and totally dark sounds with guitar, effects, flute, keyboard, looper, microphone and small metal strings and springs and other special objects. Normal’s Improvised free musics fill out his strange and weird visual world.
