Ebbe is an improvisation-based album recorded during a concert under a weeping willow tree during the brightest days of the year. The German word EBBE stands for ‘low tide’.
Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the moon and the sun, and the rotation of the earth. During a low tide, the sea is at its lowest level and its depths become more visible.Aware that at some point the tide will rise again, I now contemplate the marine treasures, the crabs, shells and sand patterns before they’ll disappear once again .

This record is a folk-doom sonic bouquet of improvised loop-based solo sessions, recorded during the coldest and darkest days of the year. It is a concept album on breaking through the sense of abandonment when a loss is experienced, as well as on the process of embracing one’s own grief as a step towards integrity.
This music was recorded live at the Contact Meets Contemporary dance festival in 2017.
The music was made in response to and for the dance. The recordings are rough and could be considered unfinished. What completes them is the relationship to dance. We hope that they will be useful and inspirational for further live exploration. With this in mind we often allowed for time in the recording, time for things to evolve, transform or disappear.
