For the guitarist and composer Hub Hildenbrand, music is essentially spiritual. It creates a space that eludes the faculties of the rational mind. This is particularly evident in improvisation. If you play alone, it is like having a dialogue with the void. You question, seek and listen attentively, like in a prayer.

To explore this space in a deeper way, that was what Hub wanted when he was drawn to the seclusion of a Uckermark country church to record his new album “MATER”. In five days, he created improvised meditations out of pure intuition over the idea of ​​emptiness as a symbolic placeholder for the divine.

"What the musician gets out of his old Gibson archtop is close to magic”
(Akustik Gitarre)
“This is a fine guitar album that sneaks into the soul without great virtuoso magic”
