In the album ZEITFREI the mesmerizing timbre of the classical soprano voice of Maraile Lichdi interweaves with an acoustic and electronic world of sound.The songs are characterized by the concept of the ambivalence of the temporal in music. In the lyrical, sketch-like texts, always vague and associative, the topics of transience, vanity, disorientation, loss of control, alienation, farewell, sorrow and finally the invincibility of time but also the resilience of man, are reflected in polarising musical levels. These poles are represented in the unstoppable and directed passages of time, to be heard on the one hand in melodies and melodic fragments and on the other in repetitive and ecstatic sound fields. The inescapability of time is thereby confronted with the ancient desire of man, the utopian ideal of overcoming finiteness by overcoming time itself. The dream to be, and to stay, free of time.
