WORDS: Hans Nieswandt
•−• Yes, double stars do exist. They are a reality.
•−• They appear in the firmament — sometimes as an optical and sometimes as a physical phenomenon. Two celestial bodies, working in relation to each other, circling around each other, responding to each other. Both in a delicate balance. In the German language this rare astronomical occurrence is called a "Doppelstern".
•−• Yet the double stars at issue here have not fallen from the sky, even if it sometimes sounds like it. Barbara Morgenstern — the great Berlin composer, lyricist, musician and choir director — has conceived them, formed them and let them rain down upon us like a meteor shower.
•−• Three years after her previous English–language album "Sweet Silence", Barbara Morgenstern is in possession of a marvellous new metaphor for a shining new creative principle. The idea was actually a hint from Justus Köhncke, with whom she also forms a double star. The concept has resulted in a great new album.
•−• In various studios and different constellations, across continents and neighborhoods, a veritable solar system has come into existence. Let's listen into it!
•−• It shimmers. Unbelievable. So many facets.
•−• Each piece is unique due to its double star constellation. Let's call them by name: T. Raumschmiere, Hauschka, Gudrun Gut, Justus Köhncke, Corey Dargel, Lucrecia Dalt, Julia Kent, Coppé, Tonia Reeh, Richard Davis, Jacaszek.
•−• And each piece is connected to the other through Barbara Morgenstern and her songs. Let's also call them by name: Was du nicht siehst. Meins sollte meins sein. Too much. Übermorgen. No One Nowhere Cares. Gleich ist gleicher als gleich. Facades. Aglow. Schieß den Bock. Lost in a fiction. Den kommenden Morgen.
•−• Barbara Morgenstern's song titles by are already poetry when simply lined–up alongside each other. And as complete lyrics in collaboration with the aforementioned partner stars they shine sometimes brighter than a supernova, and other times as delicately as a firefly. Between song–craft and krautrock, electronic listening and dance pop, an entire glittering galaxy of sounds and songs unfolds in front of us. That’s Barbara Morgenstern's "Doppelstern".
