about

The songs on "Buru Haze" were written soon after the release of "From The City To The Stars" in 2014 (with the exception of "Windchild" which was written in 2009 and pre-dates Kanoi by a year) and recorded between January and April 2015 at my home studio.

They feature a more relaxed and spaced-out sound inspired by "Meddle" to "Obscured By Clouds"-era Pink Floyd and my interest in science-fiction literature old and new which I guess becomes especially apparent on the 14-minute closing track "A New Beginning And The Sprawling Sky", a song inspired by Ann Leckie's book "Ancillary Justice"!

To preserve dynamics this record is intentionally quieter than some. For full enjoyment simply turn up the volume!

Music and lyrics by Benjamin Kantschieder

Performed and produced by Benjamin Kantschieder at The Quarry between January and April 2015 except for parts of "A New Beginning And The Sprawling Sky" which were recorded live in Arnbach by Michael Pranter with Markus Huber playing drums and Stephan Pranter playing bass

Artwork and design by Benjamin Kantschieder

Special thanks to Patrick Mühlburger for "lending" me a bass when I started this project in 2010 and didn't have the money to buy my own!
It has been featured on every single Kanoi recording since then!

Track Name: Naeco II
step outside
and see the fire
dancing on the waves

desert, wind,
lost within
the calling of the waves

travel on
night has come
and he has lost his way

step outside
see the fire
dancing all the way
Track Name: Buru Haze
one down, five to go
gun them down in the afterglow
throw them down and out into the fire

two down, four to go
shooting stars in the afterglow
pull them down and burn them in the fire

four down, two to go
you will be reaping every sin you sow
cut them down and feed them to the fire

five down, one to go
your face is hidden in the afterglow
throw it down and out into the fire
Track Name: Windchild
windchild
you're swaying with the wind, child
your laughter and your sad eyes
haunt me in my dreams

fireflies
the fire burns and lights the night
I wish the dawn won't arrive
to steal you from my side

she makes shells
and crystal towers
she collects
the moonlit flowers

she may dance
wherever rain falls
out of reach for the world

and she waits for the time when
winter dies in the summer light
golden rain from silver clouds falls
and marks the day of changing fate
Track Name: Song Of Distance
spring rain on a desert flower
and an ocean of sand
two weeks on the dusty road
with the sun overhead

I don't know how it began
but I guess I know how it ends

starshine, I'm feeling fine
and the rain clouds have gone
two months on a dusty path
with the moon looking on

I don't know how it began
but I guess I know how it ends

maybe I'll fit here
maybe I'll stay a while
birdsong in my ear
calling me into the wild

sunlight, the day grows bright
and the path leads me on
two years with a tired mind
and the trace of a song

I don't know how it began
but I guess I know how it ends

maybe I'll fit here
maybe I'll stay awhile
birdsong in my ear
leading me into the wild
maybe I'll stay here
maybe I'll sing a while

cross the ruined land
where the ocean ends
keep on singing
keep your innocence

cross the ruined land
the secret in your hands
keep on pushing
keep your innocence
Track Name: By The Sunrise
rain falls on
but it will be gone
by the sunrise

a new day comes
and she will be gone
by the sunrise

wait for me
by the sea

the river flows on
and still she belongs
to the sunrise

I picked up another one
found it out of sight
picked it up and now it's gone
pleased to hear you're fine

the sunlight on the Citadel
the moonlight in her eyes
starlight on the mountainside
hidden in her mind

rain falls on
but it will be gone
by the sunrise

a new day comes
and she will be gone
by the sunrise

wait for me
by the sea

the river flows on
but still she belongs
to the sunrise
Track Name: A New Beginning And The Sprawling Sky
watching through the eyes
of another one
waiting for the sun

watching through the mind
of another one
waiting for the gun

I've been around here far too long
the world is turning and I'll be gone
a new beginning and end to come

look up and see the sprawling skies
there waits another way to die
another gateway in the dark
a ship is sailing to the stars
