A musical short trip through the darkness!
Love, pain and loss – are close together and have already produced many devotional, melancholy and angry songs. Mark Benecke, Germany’s best-known criminal biologist and convinced goth, and Bianca Stücker, singer and multi-instrumentalist, have taken on three of these on their third joint musical strike and interpreted them in their usual unusual way:
The deathly longing “Gloomy Sunday”, around which a lot of legends entwine, has been given an electronic-abysmal garb with melancholic dulcimer speckles. The traditional “I am stretched on your grave” recalls a dark fairy tale with nyckelharpa, Tagelharpa and flutes, and on “Back to black” a harpsichord provides the groove.

Remixes by sound artist Bishop and the dark electro project Form Follows Function round off the musical short trip through the darkness in a danceable way, visually it is refined by an atmospheric photo by artist Chelsea B.

“They’ve done it again! After their joint EP success We Want It Darker, criminal biologist Dr. Mark Benecke and multi-instrumentalist Dr. Bianca Stücker are dedicating themselves to music together again. Their new work “Songs of Love and Sorrow” captivates the listener with three dark pieces!”
