Mindspeak biography
MINDSPEAK is a progressive-rock-quintet based in Vienna, Austria, consisting of VIKTORIA SIMON(vocals), SIMON NAGY (bass), ALEX CLÉMENT (guitar), CHRISTOPH KASPAROVSKY (keyboard, e-organ) and GABRIEL LAHRMANN (drums). The age of the musicians ranges from 19 to 23, while the sum of the individual members' tastes in music adds up to an even greater spectrum. This melting pot of various inspirations and playing techniques results in a very distinct and individual sound that can't be traced back to a single influence or genre. 'PICTURES' is their debut album on which the band has been working on for over two years.

The drums were recorded in studio, all other instruments and vocals were recorded by MINDSPEAK within two weeks in a home studio in Tyrol, Austria. Not least through the professional mixing and mastering the final product can now not merely be showcased as a "student project" but as a highly qualitative, representative concept-album. Pictures' resents nearly an hour of intensively played progressive rock; combining eclectic and original song-writing, resulting in a both balanced and fresh sound altogether. Multi-vocal singing alternates with pulsating instrumental passages; frequent time signature changes and rhythmic playfulness give distinction to the sound and still leave enough space for catchy tunes.

The story told by the lyrics is seamlessly interwoven with the music throughout the whole album. It tells the subjective conflict of a woman with both herself and her societal environment, seen from a very personal perspective. In both life and death she permanently feels confronted with insufficiencies of herself and is longing for a way out. Through changes in atmosphere and reoccurring, often adapted and altered motives, the music on 'PICTURES' attunes to the story and blends in perfectly.

When we read a good story, we create pictures with our minds. When we think about life, we have pictures in our heads, be it moving or stills. When we die, pictures of our lives flash before our eyes until our very last breath. A story of living and dying - pictures.
