The first album of Christian Ruhm for his own fictional label was written around 7 smaller over-paintings, which were created earlier this year. The pictures are improvised versions of photographs CR took several years back in London as a follow-up to his „Personne“-series.
Both, the pictures and first sketches of the tracks were created simultaneously and the results of them are demanding and gifted with a strange sense of beauty at the same time.Also added were three bonus-tracks which were recorded at the same time.
