Hi all,

I just wanna present my latest dark ambient release: Ostalgie

In German culture, "Ostalgie" is nostalgia for aspects of life in DDR. It is a portmanteau of the German words Ost (east) and Nostalgie (nostalgia).

This creates a great mood. Excellent work.
I visited my friends in Leipzig a few years ago, and I could sense the "Ostalgie". In fact, I brought home a poster celebrating the beauty of industrial design in the DDR.


@farkas thanks so much for listening. ostalgie is an interesting concept that need to be discussed in deep

Hi Mebitek,

To be honest with you... the video is pretty scary :-( Your music makes the tension heavier and from a "dark" point of view it certainly fits well to the video :-)

Music as well as the video are impressive from an art point of view, though I am glad those times are over...

Thank you very much for sharing this (it might set people to think, again...) and kind regards, Garfield.
