about

Jochen Tiberius Koch, a German musician who made a Schole Record debuted in 2018, will be releasing his second full album.
His previous album was produced from the inspiration from the best American non-fiction book “Walden - Life in the Woods”, and his new album is also produced with the similar concept.
This album tells a story about the history of “Astoria”, a hotel built in 1915 located at Leipzig, Germany. The building was damaged during the war and air raid, but it has been refurbished brilliantly then became as the most beautiful building in the country. The music tells a story, how it was affected from the political issues and survived during the period of division and reunification of the country, until the closure of the hotel. Also, this story also can be read from the CD booklet.
As compared to his previous work which he used the classical instruments as a composition, this new album gives an impression that he adds some electronic sound into music, and the selected spoken words from each singer creates one and only worldview structured with thoroughness. This helps to introduce the aesthetic senses of this hotel for those who don’t know its history.
