Info for AMzer

Die Celtic-Folk-Rock-Legende Alan Stivell verbrachte viel Zeit im eigenen Studio, um „AMzer“ zu entwickeln, seine Hommage an die Zeit, inspiriert vom Wechsel der Jahreszeiten und von Lyrik aus unterschiedlichen Kulturkreisen und Epochen, von japanischen Dichtern des 17. Jahrhunderts bis zu zeitgenössischen bretonischen Autoren. Was dann unter der Mitwirkung zahlreicher Musiker auf dieser wunderschönen Aufnahme aufgenommen wurde – mit Flöten und Percussion, natürlich mit Stivells Harfen, mit Gesang und gespro- chenen Texten und besonders mit dem vorsichtigen Einsatz von Elektronik – kann sich mit Fug und Recht Avantgarde-Folk nennen.

Alan Stivell
originated the concept of Celtic Music and was responsible for popularizing it. Nevertheless, the term remains restrictive in the eyes of the general public. Despite the wealth and breadth of ‘CelticMusic’, which is dear to Alan Stivell’s heart, it does not encompass all of the aspects of his music, for Alan Stivell is definitely a believer in cross-over music. He is and has always been for blending cultures and musical styles. While Alan Stivell popularized modern Breton and Celtic music, he is widely considered to be one of the forerunners of severalmusical genres: Folk-rock or the Ambient movement and especially World Music, with his seminal album ‘Reflets’ in 1970.
