On May 2nd, 2014 Michael has performed live at Freikonzert, Stuttgart/Germany together with Alexander Sting. They played their music open air in front of nearly 1500 people and showcased their way of improvising using fragments of tracks previously released on labels such as Tales From The Inside but also used completely new music. This video contains a 5 minute snippet of our this performance. Please excuse the video quality – the first camera has broken down during the event so we had to rely on low quality footage.
With 16 releases so far Michael Knead has put his name on the map of both Electronica and Progressive House music. With this new EP he is showing a very personal style using his own voice (Inner Voices), a Piano and a variety of other acoustic instruments, for example a Viola (Disrupted) which he records, edits and enhances using self-programmed beats, synthesized textures and fragmented, sometimes alienated voice samples (Clouds). Some tracks are progressively arranged, some have an inherent song structure. The result is a 5 track EP that works like a small album. A musical journey into the artist’s subconsciousness and an emotional trip for the listener. This album shows Michael’s approach to a very unique style that does not fit into any predetermined genre.
