Aukai was born of composer/instrumentalist Markus Sieber’s desire to create music that could work in tandem with film, video, theatre and the visual arts.
2018 sees the release of his latest album ‘Branches Of Sun’. The compositions on the album also grew out of Sieber’s love affair with the ‘Ronroco’, a plucked string instrument from Argentina.
“This album and project has a lot to do with memories from travel ” explains Sieber, “ I wanted to create a sonic space where music guides the listener into some imaginative inner journey.”
Which explains why he came up with the name Aukai in the first place; it’s the Hawaiian word for a seafaring traveler, the sort of person who seeks out the stillness in uncertain waters. In the case of Sieber’s new record, that meant spending a winter holed up in a mountainside cabin around Colorado’s La Plata Canyon. Basic tracks were then cut in Lichte Studio Berlin and brought into full relief alongside cellist Anne Müller (know from her collaborations with Agnes Obel, Nils Frahm), violinist Bogdan Djukic, pianist Angelika Baumbach, programmer Alexander Nickmann, and longtime collaborator Jamshied Sharifi .
