ADR returns after 2 years of Silence

12/07/18 at Cans Venue & Lounge

Last week was very special to me. After 2 years since our last show, we played as Alter Der Ruine.

The energy felt of anticipation, both from us and everyone that attended. I felt everything open up as the night started, and it only kept pushing from there.

For me, there was a bit of awkwardness at first. Mainly because I was tapping into something primal and emotional that had not been tapped into for some time.
After the first few notes those awkward feelings swept away, like a wave of relief knowing that I was finally in this place again.

We were joined by Randall Swindell (SWINDY, Ensphere, The Shift) who provided a whole new element to our live experience with bass, guitar, and additional keys. In my opinion this was the best we have ever sounded live.

Music was/is the gap between everything else. It fills spaces in conversation, underscores a drive, provides context for escape and empowerment. It’s β€ͺthe Beach Boys‬ as much as it is a white noise loop or wind in a forest. You experience it before you can define it. That is the love of sound and music.
