This is beautiful.
“Nachts” is a home recording experiment by Janek Sprachta, an EP recorded and completed in one day. The idea: A room full of instruments, a handful of microphones, 24 hours at hand and the goal to craft a piece of music that incorporates all ideas that spring to mind. The music on this release is coming from a rather neo-classical branch of Janek’s diverse creative background, having played in various bands and projects over the years, covering a wide range of the musical spectrum. “Nachts” is a departure from his band activities in many ways, all is improvised from scratch, carefully layered and condensed into four pieces of instrumental nature.
The EP is out now, you have the choice between a beautiful handmade CD-R edition or a digital version here.
This is an acoustic version of my song “Hideouts”, I recorded it in my flat in Berlin the day the Hideouts EP was released. Please enjoy!
Enough work for this week. Cheerio I say, cheerio I sing. This is the fourth and last song to be written for my EP “Hideouts”. A farewell to the past.

From Sivaofficial’s Audioteque:
The origin of this song dates way back to our winter tour in February 2008. After a concert in Bremen we were about to sleep in a big room above the club, the club owner gave us the keys and turned down the lights. After he left we decided to get back on stage at 3 in the morning, to play together. So the lights were turned on again and we started to play whatever came to mind. Suddendly the guitar part emerged and we played it for half an hour straight, trying to find the right parts to complement it. After the tour we recorded the guitar on an old folk guitar (soon to fall apart) and the recording process started from there. The first part of the song was created in summer ‘08, during the album sessions in early ‘09 we completed the song, adding layers of instruments, drums and vocals to it. It describes the idea to start anew, after something went horribly wrong in the first place. Wanting something almost too much is often the reason why it does not work out. Finding a balance is hard. You have to learn to sense when to step back or take control during a process and remember to leave some space to let the ghosts walk in the room. Whatever is the agenda. The best things sometimes occur when you let go, don’t they? The original title of the song was “All The Right Moves In The Wrong Place”, which describes the good intentions being sometimes put into the wrong manners to achieve something. It also payed tribute to the various elements and influences of the song, bringing Electronica, R & B, Post-Rock and a bit of Soul together. It almost became the title of the record we were working on but that’s another story… At last minute we decided to shorten the title of the song, making it more open.
