Kathrina s. East is a german author, singer, composer, and part of the artist duo Cataract of Dreams.
If you just came from the catod.de homepage, you have now found the part of the site that is mainly about photography. You can always return to the CatoD homepage via the dropdown menu under “Links”.
If you found this page by changing the language of the kathrina-east.de to English, here’s a little information: Kathrina tries to provide as much of her content as possible in German and English. Unfortunately, our language skills are far from sufficient to adequately translate artistic texts. We, therefore, ask for your understanding that this page is available in English only to a limited extent.
Have fun looking around!
To get a finished piece of music it is not enough to write and play it.
Recording, mixing, and mastering have to be done as well. In 2020 we decided that we want to do this ourselves, to be less dependent on other people or the amount of money we are able to spend on professionals. As a consequence, we began with covering some simple and copyright-free songs to train our recording and editing skills. The results can be found here.
Nachtschwärmers Abendlied (Music)
‘Nachtschwärmers Abendlied’ is a short, atmospherical arrangement based on the eponymous poem by Kathrina. Right now it is only a composition, but we plan on recording and producing it on our own.
According to plan, the piece was to be published as early as fall 2021, but the “Spiegelbilder” exhibition and the corona pandemic have caused some delays. A new date has not been set yet.
Until then we provide two small snippets to get a glimpse on it. So far it is a Midi-File, so all Sounds are auto-generated and will be replaced later on.
