“Music begins where words are powerless to express. Music is made for the inexpressible. I want music to seem to rise from the shadows and indeed sometimes to return to them”. Claude Debussy Ten years ago I lost my Mother and earlier this year my Father also passed away. I couldn’t express my regrets, my deep pain for their lost in words. I composed this album containing my feelings I wasn’t able to express in any other way. May they rest in peace! credits released August 4, 2018 About this album> “Truly marvelous expression of sentiment and...
Andreas Meyer: Irrgarten I

Andreas Meyer: Irrgarten I

Andreas Meyer was the name of an alternative project of the man behind the Nord project – Sztakics Istvan Attila. The purpose of this project was to make a tribute to the autor’s german ancestors and to explore deeper and deeper the pure Berlin school style, in the German way: with a German project name, with German titles in the purest German electronic music style. Irrgarten I is the first part of an imaginary journey in a garden where nothing is what it looks like. Imagine yourself in a (musical) labyrinth, with mirrors and reflexions… To be continued....

First album of Nord in 2018, “The Tree of Life” The tree of life (2018) by Nord is inspired by an ancient Hungarian mythology; Életfa or the Tree of life which is considered to be the center of the world. And like in his last albums, Sztakics István Attila keeps on going and even accentuates his bend towards a fusion of progressive rock and of an EM of the Berlin School style which seduced his new legion of fans since The Hidden Garden of Semiramis. Genesis dipped into Opeth and\or Strawbs marinated in Dream Theater, Nord uses more and more his electric guitars...

I was always fascinated by the Time. From where it comes? Where it goes? Can we really measure it with those complicated mechanisms? Maybe only our memories make us to “feel” the passing of time faster and faster…. May be there is no time at all … only eternity. This is the reason why I did not mention the timing of the tracks on the cover of this album. However, Bandcamp mentioned it automatically. This album is a sequel to my other album titled Pendulum. I explored using music those elements which were not or could not be included in my before...

Having a past in rock music, being a member of several rock and metal bands during the past decades (Tempest 1991 – 1993, Semaphore 1993 – 2001, Mercedes Band 2006 – 2014), and after releasing some pure electronic music albums in the near past, I made with this album a journey back to the sound of rock music blending it with the sound of synthesizers. The songs are created with synthesizers around berlin school/new age style themes and after it the rock themes were recorded using (real) electric guitars. The album is about the Wonders of Humanity and...
