Information

In the continuously advancing landscape of contemporary classical music, composer Henning Fuchs proves to be a pioneer with his latest release, COCOON. He combines a variety of genres and cultural influences to create a world of his own on his third album for the Berlin-based label Neue Meister. The album deals with farewells, transformation, and new beginnings - musically, it is a unique combination of neoclassical elements and nuances from world music, pop, and jazz. The boundaries of musical conventions are transcended here. Henning Fuchs, who worked for the composer Max Richter for five years, brings his cinematic composition experience to this work and creates pieces that call for inner reflection and contemplation.

COCOON takes the listener through the highs and lows of transformation in an uplifting and enchanting way. While the songs are closely interlinked, each one represents a moment in the process of change: saying goodbye (THE WORLD IS GREAT), suffering (THE STRAIN), doubt (LOVE IS), separation (SEPARATION), tears (TEARS OF THE PAST), transformation, missteps and confusion (LOST AT SEA), letting go (LEARN HOW TO DIE), happiness and love (LOVE IS - REPRISE). When the cocoon opens, there is no longer a familiar path to follow (THE WAY OUT). With the new, the metamorphosis reaches another level. Liberation is joy and uncertainty in one, equally accompanied by magic and sadness (LEARN HOW TO DIE).

COCOON is a metaphor for the current global changes that we perceive differently. Whichever external path you choose in the process of change, "it is the inner attitude and the will to change oneself that determines whether the cocoon produces joy or suffering; whether the butterfly that hatches from the cocoon can fly - or not." summarises Henning Fuchs.
