Dieter is a Hamburg based electronic musician and bass player with his origins in Punk; his list of tours and releases – national and international – is awesome. Wilfried is a Wuppertal based bass player with his origins in Krautrock and Progressive Rock. After a long break he started to play music again in 2007 at the age of 50, concentrating on free improvisation.
They met at the Sound Art Festival in Augsburg in 2020, where they were teamed up to play in a trio with Sascha Stadlmeier. On this occasion they decided to record this album – Fernweh.
