Edenbridge - Two Members Launch Acoustic Project


Voiciano is the new acoustic project of the Edenbridge singer Sabine Edelsbacher and Lanvall (grand piano, acoustic guitars and other string instruments, percussion). Voiciano is based on acoustic instruments exclusively, mainly the grand piano. However many other instruments like acoustic guitars, hammered dulcimer, kacapi, bouzouki, mandolin, saz and diverse percussion instruments are appearing. Sabine and Lanvall were also able to get some great guests for the album. Most of them are longtime friends. The album Everflow will be released over their own label in Spring 2014.

Furthermore, a real string orchestra can be heard, the orchestra "Junge Philharmonie Freistadt". The music was recorded nearly exclusively without any click tracks, that means without any predetermined tempo, which accentuates the liveliness and soul of the songs.




Lanvall says: "The idea was born after our Edenbridge promotion acoustic show in Vietnam. In 2010 Sabine and I flew to Vietnam for a 10 minutes show case, to perform 3 songs on the 1000 Years Hanoi Festival. The simplicity of the whole process concerning the rehearsals and the show were pure fun for us. You just request for a microphone and a grand piano, enter the stage and perform. When we came back, I went through my files and piles of sketches of numerous ideas, which remained unused to this point. I was astonished how many great songs I found in layouts in this acoustic form. This inspired me immediately to write completely new songs additionally."

Sabine adds: "I always had the idea for a solo project with more balladesque songs. Voiciano is exactly, what I had in mind. In Voiciano my voice gets more room in all its nuances, this is what I enjoy of course. Furthermore I will bring myself in into the lyrics. The mystic atmosphere of our songs will remain of course - I think we cannot do it differently - it's a part of us."

Lanvall continues: "After the huge production of the last Edenbridge album The Bonding, it was extremely important to gain distance musically and be involved in something, which is different. The reduction in the music and the process to record much of the music live, gave me tremendous joy. I believe that everybody who loves Edenbridge, will love Voiciano too, although it shows us from a completely different side. When I began to arrange the songs I was immensely touched by the feeling and the souls of the songs. This inspired me to learn new instruments like the hammered dulcimer, which can be heard in a couple of songs and creates an own mystic atmosphere."

"Voiciano is a project among our main band Edenbridge, to live out this faible for acoustic music. All songs would also work with just vocals and piano in the live situation. I think that after this album I will also be really inspired for a next big Edenbridge album!"

After Forever 1th album, 3th and the mortal, old tristania, even Nighwtsih , this band, and more, why 80's thrash or so called true metal bands stick to one band or fiev, but not many side projects and active bands same time, look at MS news ''x band launches side project''

only good side project I can name at this moment is Demons n Wizards and Avatarium (since its not leif's main band)

You cannot generalize just with three examples. Nightwish does not count in this discussion.
Some musicians need side projects, they need and want to express themselves musically, otherwise than before.

Theatre Of Tragedy had great gothic sound in the 90s with Liv Kristine in it, it's not even the same band anymore...
