Stephan Micus | Panagia | ECM 2308



Stephan Micus was born in Germany in 1953, but has lived in Mallorca for many years. His first ECM album, “Implosions”, was released in 1977 and since then he has created 19 more using instruments of every kind collected on travels all over the world – winds, strings and percussion, including bells, gongs, stones and flower pots. He composes, records and mixes the albums in his studio in Mallorca. Micus is a one-man universe of sound and his music is very powerful and quite unique. “For me a CD is a journey,” he explains, “I am like a guide and I take the listeners on a trip, passing through different landscapes and emotions and then I bring them back”.
