New photos: Stills from Maximilian’s short films
»To capture my bliss, I started to film myself with a compact camera. Back home in Berlin I edited a little movie from the material and called the short film KASTRUP. Having already decided to travel to Kastrup at least once a year, about 11 months later I shot exactly the same frames that I had filmed a year before at this Danish spellbound scene of my cure and created a one-to-one copy of KASTRUP, called KASTRUP #2.«
Spellbound Scenes of My Cure – The Short Films
»Someday I’ll forsake your land for good · And hope you’ll understand · Don’t cry for me, I know I’m on my way.«
»To Liu Wen, The Opposite House, 3 a.m.«
First single »To Liu Wen, The Opposite House, 3 a.m.« out November 28th
»And I’ll be holding onto all your sweet disclosures · All your unspoken clues that keep alive your mystery · I’ll be trying hard to understand your beauty · And your gracious spirit that triggered off my healing.«
Spellbound Scenes of My Cure - Front cover artwork
»And I remember a beauteous, alcohol-deluded flash · When your sunlight laughter dulled my pain · When ordeal and longing let loose my heart · When your understated passion showed.«
New album »Spellbound Scenes of My Cure« out in January 2015
»When I arrived in Kastrup, it was snowing, and this newly fallen snow seemed to have covered my chaotic past. Everything was white, clear, plain and infinite, and when I walked on this bleak village’s paths, my previously sinister mood had evaporated. I felt sheltered and embraced by this Danish night, unattainable and untouchable.«
