The tracks of “Music for plants”are based on a live improvisation with electric guitar and a looping machine. Jan Grünfeld has recorded the music in the summer of 2014 on a huge balcony of an old villa in Bad Muskau, right at the German-Polish border – a very arcadian place! The music is free, like a suntrap. The plants grow better with Jan Grünfeld’s music! But not turn up too loud! And do not forget to water!

Born in 1992 in the Tuscan hills,
he grew up drumming on everything,
and playing drums as a little crazy rocker with several bands.
He then fell in love with ambient music and acid techno,
from which it takes lifeblood today,
after years of research of its own musical identity
feel the need to publicly express his love for drum machines,
synthesizers and soundscapes!
After having told of cities without sun, at night, when smog vanishes, one’s gaze is searching again for a corner of nocturnal skies, it searchs stars and planets where the mind can project itself, where it could still transcend.
Looking again at the Moon, and dreaming of sidereal trips, how not to think about Apollo 11’s contentious challenge, about Neil Armstrong and companions., about their long round journey to the satellite, and back, and above all about their trip ‘inside’, conquering their inner space , as J G Ballard would say?
That’s Armstrong, a six-acts trip, six scores to get lost, a music aimed for motionless travellers.
«The brand-new Crossworlds recording – “Day and Night” – exchanges ethnography for a family setting. Mikryukov informs us that: “The LP was conceived as a present for my daughter. Initially it was to be published on vinyl, with the two sides given over to daytime and nocturnal themes. Everything was recorded over the course of two years, from February 2013 to February 2015. The album contains both our own, original material and some lyrics by Lesya Ukrainka. The result is a fairly strange, yet organic mixture of folk, academic music, downtempo tendencies, and experimental elements.”»
