Garden of Silence

It is with great sadness that we had to learn about the unexpected passing of Bruno Amstad, former singer of Garden of Silence, a project initiated by Swedish bass player and composer Björn Meyer. 
The musicians of Garden of Silence have released this declaration: 
"Despite our deep sadness, we have decided to continue Garden of Silence out of gratitude for the time we spent together and as a tribute. We want to bring music into the world as a source of hope right now. Bruno is irreplaceable. So it was immediately clear to us that we had to find new sonic facets in order to be able to implement the music. We are pleased that Karin Streule and Klaus Gesing will now be taking these new paths with us! Both are outstanding artists who, in their own way, have a long-standing connection to Garden of Silence." 
I feel honoured by the invitation, and will play in memory of all the dear souls we have to learn to live without.
