"MY CLOUDS" Those "clouds" darken the light and the point of view from time to time. During the poorly lit season or because of diverse life events. Ultimately, everyone has his own "dark clouds" and in the best case - one makes peace with them.

"FOR A WHILE" Everything is temporary - live, love, pain. Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things. There is a quote: "Do not cry because it's over - be happy because it was beautiful" This is kind of intention of the song.

"WOLKENGRAU" In times of permanent sensory overload and daily blogs and tweets with loads of nonsense. In this times a longing for reduction, essentiality and consciousness is growing. A new morning, new Possibilities, fresh thoughts - a bit escapism is allways good.

03:26
"IN CIRCLES" ...is about the circles of life and the (often late) realization that not everything always goes farther and higher. Despite that, to fulfil oneself and keep life exciting is maybe the highest form of art.

about

With UTOPIAE german musician Konrad Schubert presents his very own music project. He draws on the one hand from years of musical experience and dares on the other hand more than one step into the unknown.

One could, of course, grossly UTOPIAE situate in the genres of singer-songwriter, folk noir and postrock/indie. But in his shades it seems much more: It's an attempt to omit without missing, to express without to crush.

The focus is on acoustic instruments - voice, guitar. No big symphonic superstructure, no rockband and no loads of electronic gadgets should influence the expression.

"I like it when the intention of a song is already noticeable with minimalistic intrumentation." he said.

As much as necessary, as compact as possible - could it get to the point. Therefore, there are also quite percussion, strings, Harmonium or even a Teramine in the songs.

But it is true - nothing is an end in itself.
