I got the invitation to write a text to accompany T.ON's music in their album "T.ON plays Matthias Muche". The result is a poem inspirerd by the piece Gleiter (english version below). You find the poem in the booklet, too.
Ge-leiten, leiten lassen, geschehen lassen. Wo ist der Mehrwert für diese Zeit fragen sie -
Sie, wer? Zeit, Tod, Geld.
Rhythmus und Takt. Dem Schema folgen. Zeit, mehr, Gier, Ziel.
Wohin geht es?
Sein lassen. Erleben, fühlen, eintauchen. Sein.
Zeit machen, Zeit lassen, Zeit geben, Zeit nehmen. Ziele erreichen, Erreichen, Siereichen, sie reichen mir etwas.
Gabe: Zeit, Sein – im Raum. Stille.
Hell und Dunkel, ein Spektrum.
translation by Alex Englander
Be led, let lead, let happen. Where is the added value for this time they ask -
you, who? Time, death, money.
Rhythm and beat. Follow the scheme. Time, more, greed, goal.
Where does it go?
Let be. Experience, feel, immerse. Be.
Make time, allow time, give time, take time. Achieve goals, achieve, leave, you leave something to me.
Gift: time, being - in space. Silence.
Light and dark, a spectrum.

I created a surreal short story inspired by Emiszatett's music that is printed in their booklet for their album "Physis".
When I awoke I felt different. Something had changed. I needed a few moments to realize what was happening. My movements felt strangely homogenous but they had a sweetness to them that made my worries about it disappear. I was one and one was many. I started moving forward. First carefully and tentatively, then more playfully. What was I? I enjoyed every sensation attentively in a rush of a golden hurry. I felt more alive than I had done in many years. I realized that I was moving vertically. I thought: Maybe I am a vineyard snail? The thought loomed. Though it didn’t matter anymore. My new senses were too overpowering. – Then I got stuck. The soil beneath me began to melt and it was gone within a second. I swirled around, or perhaps just my mind did. When the soil beneath me reappeared the landscape had changed. It smelled like the meadows of 1996 that I often visited as a child. I took them all in and in and with every breath more in. In; until I entered their innate forest. It was wild and brave. The wind blew heavily and creatures appeared that I had never seen before. But I felt safe and I allowed the branches of the trees to take me to their roots. Slowly and with care they drew lints in their meadows. I observed the scene, no, I felt it and I got sucked into it until I only saw, smelled, felt as if all colors were mixed to brown.
