Sensational: exciting LICHTMOND worlds of sound and image - now also available in 3D LICHTMOND presents the worldwide first animation music Blu-Ray in 3D in 7.1 + 5.1 surround sound - release date: 01.07.2011 (Blu Phase Media/Alive!) In cooperation with Boy George the track “Save Me” is coming up „The project of the brothers Martin and Giorgio Koppehele is an artistic synthesis“ - commends dpa, „A fabulous entertainment package“ - says the DVD Magazine, „The sound is overwhelming“ - rates Stereoplay. The ambient pop project LICHTMOND was released last year on Blu-Ray, DVD and CD. LICHTMOND also performed live at the Night Of The Proms Tour Germany, won high praise from the press, reached # 3 of the German Blu-Ray- and DVD charts and was already awarded with the international Impala silver award. The producers and creative brains behind LICHTMOND, the Koppehele brothers from Munich, are now even going a big step further causing a sensation in the music world: at 01.07.2011 LICHTMOND will be released by Blu Phase Media/Alive! as the world-wide first animation music Blu-Ray in 7.1. and 5.1 surround sound in fantastic 3D, in which you can “immerse into” in the true sense of the word. „3D is on everyone’s lips and an own 3D edition of LICHTMOND is the realization of a dream for us. As we had already created the complete image world for LICHTMOND together with our Spanish animation team Imago-D studios, we had to convert that into a fascinating 3D world. For this purpose it needs - among the vision of three-dimensional worlds - especially a high computing power to create a true, stereoscopic 3D version. Now some objects like the flying fish positively "grow" out of the 3D TV while vast landscapes spread out backwards in an incredible depth. True 3D image is the perfect extension to the LICHTMOND worlds of sound and shows the possibilities of what is creatively feasible in the music domain.” Together with pop legend Boy George and John and Emily Themis Giorgio, Martin, Suna and Gabi Koppehele wrote the song „Save me“. It will be released as a bonus track on the 3D version of LICHTMOND. LICHTMOND are already working in their studio on the „LICHTMOND 2” - album which will be released in early summer 2012. "I would trade a billion shining stars for a single kiss from you" - Very beautiful, insightful love poems, catchy ambient pop and chill-out songs weaved into enthralling tapestries of sound as well as captivating and fascinating 3D animated imagery - that is the magic world of LICHTMOND. The viewer is whisked away to an enchanting universe of fantasy the minute he enters. “LICHTMOND has all of the experience and creativity and is the lifeblood which we have gained in music composition and production", the Koppehele brothers say. "Therefore it is a very special project for us." The artists first created the magic tapestries of sound. They formed the basis for the melodies and the English lyrics which Suna Koppehele, Giorgio's wife, composed for them. Gabi Koppehele, Martin's wife, wrote the German love poems for them. "The concept is a journey through electronic worlds of sound, coupled with fascinating voices of the guest musicians and the imagery - music for all of the senses. And the love poems are the "breath". The poetry correlates with these worlds of sound and should take the listener and viewer along on a journey. A trip which whisks you away from stress and daily life into your own poetic, magical world". LICHTMOND consists of Martin Koppehele (e-bass and esraj), Giorgio Koppehele (synthesizer and electronic instruments), Thomas E. Killinger („The voice“: recitation of the poems, piano) and Saskia Philipps (vocals). Further guest musicians are Meera Fé (vocals, esraj, oerhum), Karen Kassulat (vocals), Suna and Gabi Koppehele (vocals) as well as guitarists and drummers. LICHTMOND is an open platform which could be conceivably joined by further guest musicians on the next LICHTMOND album. No one less than Martyn Ware, founder and member of “Human League” and “Heaven 17” and a producer for Tina Turner, produced a remix of the LICHTMOND title “Frühlingstänzerin” ("Spring Dancer"). Dirk Hohmeyer, organiser of the Night of the Proms Germany, had introduced Martyn Ware to LICHTMOND. Inspired by the electronic ambient sound, the English producer legend spontaneously stated he is willing to take on "hands on LICHTMOND”. Together with the Spanish animation team Diego M. Bonati, Imago-D studios, Giorgio and Martin created some kind of parallel world for LICHTMOND: an „Earth 2“, on which many things are similar to our earth. However this „Earth 2“ is orbited by two suns, wherefore completely different forces of gravity dominate there. So you can see hovering trees, strange flying fish, bubble-like volcanoes, surreal objects and much more in fascinating 3D technology. This world is unaffected by humans and the viewer can enjoy it calmly. Together with the music the pictures should transport beauty and clarity - a pleasure for the soul. Each song gets its own world: „The beautiful thing about the LICHTMOND 3D animations is that you can move within the created world completely freely.” www.lichtmond.com

CD – DVD – Blu-ray – Live Tour
LICHTMOND is produced in full 1080 HD resolution and with a genuine, discrete 7.1, 5.1 and 2.0 surround sound in 192 kHz. An absolute unique acoustic and visual highlight.
The fantastic optical dream worlds have been newly created by the Spanish animation artist Diego M. Bonati, Imago-D Studios, Madrid, exclusively for LICHTMOND.
The modern, sensual ambient pop of LICHTMOND is a unique experience because it is presented live with the sound landscapes of Giorgio & Martin, the charismatic vocals and the visual dream worlds. The sensitive love poems of LICHTMOND, written by Gabi Koppehele, with reference to different cultures, form a charming contrast to the sound landscapes of ambient, mystic and German electronics.
