Nude With Amber Necklace

Monday, 01.22.2018 by Verena Zeiner

The greatest inspiration while creating my solo album was this woman: Paula Modersohn-Becker. A german painter, born 1876. She took on the challenge of living a life that was far ahead of her time.
One of my pieces is especially dedicated to her: "Nude With Amber Necklace". It's also the title of a painting by Paula Modersohn-Becker that is said to be the first nude self-portrait in art history depicting a female painter herself.
It was created on Mai 25th 1906, on her 6th wedding day, but far away from her husband, in Paris, where she repeatedly spent longer periods of time to develop her skills as an artist.
Independently - at least in spirit. Because she also realized that she will never be able to make it on her own financially. She went back to Worpswede, where she lived with her husband... And died in November 1907, 31 years old, about two weeks after giving birth to her first child...
Only after her death her family, friends and contemporaries recognized the fullness and quality of her life's work...

Solo Album Release

Thursday, 11.16.2017 by Verena Zeiner

What an amazing evening!
My solo-album-release-concert, also featuring solo sets of Emily Stewart & Stefan Voglsinger.

The album depicts a two-year period of exploration, search and confrontation with myself and the world around.
In seven pieces different places, times and pianos (and probably various sides of myself) meet each other, connected through electro-acoustic threads.

Recorded 2015, 2016 and 2017 by Alexander Yannilos.
Mixed and mastered by Alexander Yannilos.
Produced by Verena Zeiner and Alexander Yannilos.
Artwork by Irene Reichart.
