This music was recorded beginning of march 2020 at the conservatory of arts in Zurich together with accordionist Yordan Kostov and sound engineer Bojan Ugrinovski. The unique open and spatial acoustic sound was predestinated to combine it with the artistry of the painter Gerald Meißner.
It's a cycle of six landscapes from color and sound. Enjoy!

Music can connect people and cultures. The musicians Yordan Kostov (Macedonia) and Andreas Günther (Germany) first met in Shanghai.
There they performed music together with local musicians in small groups and big free improvised orchestras like Huangpu Divers or Paperkillers.
Since then they follow the idea of playing concerts around the world featuring international artists. In 2018 Yordan and Andreas played concerts in Macedonia, Bosnia, Germany and Japan. In every country they featured local musician to perform their music together with them.
The album Extravaganza Fantasi was recorded 2018 in Berlin on May 21st at the Golden Wall Studio from famous audio engineer and producer Mario Fister. Together with local musicians Daniel Meyer (electric guitar) and Leo Henry Koch (drums) they recorded a mix of composed and improvised songs. The artwork is made by Friedrich Drescher.
