In June 2020 Michael Rother packed the trunk of his car full, making sure to include a selection of his favorite instruments and other effects, and set out on a trip from Bevern-Forst, where he has lived on an old farm since 1973, spending a half a century writing momentous pieces of music history, at times solo, and at others in collaboration with other artists (Hans Joachim Roedelius, Dieter Moebius, Brian Eno et al.) His two-day drive took him to Pisa, but it was not a vacation. Rother will stay in Italy and live there with Italian music enthusiast Vittoria Maccabruni. The two musicians crossed paths back in 2005 while Rother was touring Italy with his friend Moebius. 15 years on, and now as a couple, they are embarking upon a remarkable musical partnership, utterly unpretentiously bringing together stark contrasts in As Long As the Light, challenging each other, blending and completing one another and creating undreamt-of forms via musical dialogue. These new perspectives shape the sound worlds they concoct and give rise to something unique.
