The Recording Session
The music you are hearing on this soundtrack longplaying record is the result both of an experiment and a dream. For many years, Doc had dreamt of what he labelled the "Analogue Superheroes Dinner" - a get-together and conversation of leading personalities from both worlds, digital and analogue. Thinkers, creators and entrepreneurs meeting over dinner to discuss where and how the two will merge. And for years, Doc was looking for the right, special venue for this event. When he discovered the empty but fully functional Südbahnhotel, he knew he had found a perfect, sufficiently magical place.
And the experiment began. How could we capture this on film? How to make it a unique evening? How to make it make sense? Ideas started flowing freely; most not sounding particularly possible. But that was the point, wasn't it?
In the end it was a banquet with 18 guests talking animatedly around a long table, filmed live, by candlelight only, on 35mm Kodak film. As Sascha Peres and his 45-piece orchestra performed what would later be the magic soundtrack to the cinema documentary "An Impossible Project", recorded live and unrehearsed, on that single day at the deserted hotel.
The four songs performed by LA singer Haley Reinhart are a special treat. It only came together because of digital. We found each other via the internet, just seven days before.

Allow us to proudly introduce Giulio, master of our small screen print manufactory.
He took on the delicate task to meticulously convert some carefully selected still frames of the documentary into rasterized images which exposed onto light-sensitive screens thereafter. With this screens he then printed every single cover and every single insert by hand.
As a result each end every coverprint is a one of a kind original of no other kind with a very warm texture. We really love how this very sensitive nad fragile technique perfectly matches the character of music and are pretty confident...
...that this record will become one of your very favorite vinyls. A perfect music to accompany your next impossible projects.
