Ki Records, von der haardt, silent green und MARS I Küche & Bar present
Picnic concert with headphones
In front of the old building of silent green, a green lawn invites you to linger. It is the perfect backdrop for a nice picnic and a great stage for great musicians* who can't wait to play live again. We'll equip you with high quality headphones and a picnic package, you bring seat cushions and blankets - and together we'll finally enjoy a concert at silent green again!

- The concert will take place outside if the weather permits it - in case of rain we'll take it inside. The decision will be announced on the day of the event from about 3 pm.

- Please arrive in time to avoid long queues. From 6 pm on, the lawn and beverage sales are open for you and we hand out the picnic packages.
- We start early and end early, so that the lawn is empty at 10 pm for the sake of our neighbours.

- We recommend using the Corona Warn App of the Federal Government.
Lys, Christian Löffler’s newest album, serves as a sequel and contrast to Graal, its predecessor. Whereas the latter is the result of a six-month period spent largely on the road in between live shows, the former is a studio release in the truest sense, recorded and compiled in the serenity of Löffler’s home studio.
While produced within four walls, Lys’ grounding comes from what lies beyond them – Graal, Müritz. This isn’t the first time Löffler has drawn on his home surroundings for his art: the woodland refuge formed the basis for his 2012 album, A Forest. Lys, however, captures something even more fundamental in nature: light.
“I realised that the light is different in the north of Germany, and this became an overall theme for the album,” Löffler explains. “Before I had Mare, and Forest, and now it’s become light,” hence the album’s title, meaning “light” in Danish.
What unifies these songs is the process behind them. Waking up early, Löffler would head for a run in the nearby woodlands before settling in his studio for 8am. He’d cast his mind back to the early morning and reflect on how the light had changed, marking the passing of time during the day – the passing of seasons in a year, and the constant change of everything there is. He’d observe how the light would trickle into his studio, in between the leaves from the trees just outside, casting shadows on his instruments and paintings, giving colour to his world. Inspired by the inherent beauty of this process, he found himself painting these patterns and then communicating his feelings in his music.
