The story of NYC Nights

In September 2017 we got the wicked idea of why not spend a second holiday this year in New York. We had wanted to go several times in the last 10 years, but never had gone. We decided and booked on a whim and sure enough in October we found ourselves in the big apple. I recently had bought a cheap field recorder just to try it out and what an opportunity it was. This isn't just the city of light but of constant sound. You cannot escape it. From sirens to jackhammers to buzzing people. The sounds just engulf you and finally inspire the musician in you. I had to do something with it. So this idea was born. I first thought of using most of the sounds rhythmically but the project soon took on a life of its own. Sometimes the tracks developed out of the sound, sometimes an idea was complimented by certain sounds or just the idea survived and a track came from nowhere. It certainly is funny the way inspiration works. And so is life. In January the project stopped as I got stopped by my internal beat Maschine loosing its rhythm. This, in a way, at the same time stalled and sped up the project as I am currently forced to stay at home, which gave me plenty of time to finish the album. As is my fashion it spans from Rock to Jazz to Electronica. Some classical ideas and EDM are in there too. If I can find one listener who enjoys the whole album as I did I'd be very lucky.The mood of the album feels a bit melancholic at times, so I wanted it to end on a fun track. The track title is an in joke only my family and our friends in New York will understand(, or any parent with young children high on sugar.)

As always Listen, enjoy, tell your friends and foes about it.

Love, Markus

Musician, composer, songwriter, producer from Southwest Germany.

I mainly do instrumental music, but I won't limit myself to one genre. The current musical thread in my tracks is electronic ambient folk. But if you listen to my whole body of work e.g. on soundcloud.com/markus-adams-1 you will see that my taste and style are quite eclectic. So pick the tracks you like and enjoy them. ... more
