Captain Entprima - Chill & Relax

As the Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts approached more and more socio-political topics in their development, our ecosystem began to totter. Entprima was supposed to stand for “Soulfood”, and dealing with the unpleasant topics of our world does not always nourish the joy of living. So we had to develop counterweights to this. Now “Ambient Music” is not new territory in the world of Entprima, because already in the first story “Spaceship Entprima” there was the music producing coffee machine in the diner of the spaceship, which already produced ambient music.

However, the genre has now become huge and fragmented into dozens of different styles. A look into the encyclopedia WIKIPEDIA gives a nice overview of the history and the current state of the genre. After the first production of Captain Entprima we don’t know where the journey is going, but the purpose of the music is clearly relaxation and meditation. The artistic development will show which music we ultimately consider to be best suited for this purpose.

After the second production we will also create a release note for the already released first EP “The Blue Cavern”. Until then, we recommend the homepage of the artist unit Captain Entprima for further information. Afterwards you will of course find links to the streaming services for this EP already here.

We like to name our offers “Soulfood”

Apart from our stories and music releases we still have one or two things to say. These messages are sometimes interesting for one person and sometimes for another. We don’t want to divide it up thematically and call it “fanpost”.

If you are interested in our world of thoughts, it won’t bother you to find out about things that don’t directly concern you. At least we hope so.

Die Geschichte von Oberförster Karl-Heinz Flinte - Horst Grabosch

Die Geschichte von Oberförster Karl-Heinz Flinte

A new story by Horst Grabosch from the “Heroes of Work” series. This time the focus is on the profession of forester. Of course, Karl-Heinz Flinte does not fit the stereotype of a forester. On the cover, he looks more like a climate activist. But that is exactly Grabosch’s twist. The three episodes reveal the diversity of the activity. Flinte also occasionally shoots a boar when necessary, but he also suffers with the weakened trees and cares for the forest’s human visitors – after all, that’s what he’s paid to do. Just as with his music, he sits between all chairs, but the chairs always represent only a limited view. Grabosch always chooses individual themes and musical genres for a song, but in the process they form a whole picture over time. This picture is irritatingly diverse in terms of pattern formation. Perhaps this is precisely how Grabosch demonstrates our general lack of acceptance of the complexity of the world. But he always keeps his humorous wink.

Die Geschichte von Bademeister Adelwart - Horst Grabosch

Die Geschichte von Bademeister Adelwart

With the story of pool attendant Adelwart, Horst Grabosch presents the second release from the series “Heroes of Work”. With three episodes in this maxi-single he pays tribute to people who daily make their peaceful contribution to the functioning of our world. All three contributions of German poetry and musical eclecticism have the same jazzy base and vary in the small poems in German that form the song lyrics and in the soloistic elements. We are once again surprised by the variety of styles in Grabosch’s songs. There is jazz in this song and the jazz trumpeter, who was internationally successful many years ago, shows how to integrate styles when you have practiced them yourself.

Die Geschichte von Krankenschwester Hildegard - Horst Grabosch

Die Geschichte von Krankenschwester Hildegard

With the story of Nurse Hildegard, Horst Grabosch opens a new box of his imagination. With three episodes in this maxi-single, he pays tribute not only to professions that are socially important, but even more to the people who daily make their peaceful contribution to the functioning of our world. All three musical pieces have the same musical base and vary in the small poems in German that make up the lyrics of the song and in the solo elements. Other tributes to other professions have been announced. The series is entitled Heroes of Work. We are looking forward to more humorous episodes with new musical styles, as we are used to from the eclectic Grabosch.

Der Preis des Wollens - Horst Grabosch

Der Preis des Wollens

This downtempo track sets to music the poem of the same name, which deals with peace of mind. The academically trained musician speaks the text himself over a charming chord progression and poetic electronic sounds. Sophisticated but pleasing “Deutsche Poesie”.

LUST - Horst Grabosch

LUST

Quite a thick one! Horst Grabosch doesn’t leave it at a music album, but writes a book to it – unfortunately in German. But we have to accept that, because it is his native language. We already know the music from the singles, but it is so catchy and profound that you can listen to it more often. The book should increase the pleasure even more, because it describes thoughts and feelings about each title. Therefore, we think the title “LUST” is quite appropriate.

Mother Tongue and Discrimination

Quote: No German-language title in the Top 100 of the Official German Airplay Charts 2022.
BVMI Chairman Dr. Florian Drücke criticizes the fact that not a single German-language title can be found in the Top 100 of the Official German Airplay Charts 2022, thus setting a new negative record for a trend that the industry has been pointing out for years. At the same time, the study shows that the variety of genres listened to, including German-language music, continues to be great. In the music offer of the radio stations this is not reflected however. The fact that songs in German don’t play a particularly big role on the radio is not a new phenomenon, and the industry has addressed and criticized it many times over the years.

Meditation and Music

Meditation is increasingly being used unfairly as a label for relaxing music of all kinds, but meditation is more than relaxation.

Eclectic Electronic Music

After a long search for a suitable genre or term for my recent musical productions, I have found in “eclectic” the appropriate adjective.
