Back to the Moon

BACK TO THE MOON is an Electronic Music project including guitar sounds and vocal parts. The man behind this project is Jürgen Drogies from Bremen, Germany. After first experiences with bands as a pupil Jürgen founded "Thirsty Moon" together with his brother Norbert. Between 1972 and 1980 five albums of this group have been released by the legendary "Krautrock"-label "Brain". 1981 the two brothers started an 8-track recording studio for demos and for the development of new ideas. With the purchase of a Moog Prodigy and a Roland Juno 60 synthesizer Jürgen’s passion for electronic instruments began. His first hardware sequencer was the Roland MC-202. A Commodore C 64 computer with a MIDI-interface expanded the capabilities and was replaced later by the Atari ST and after that by the Apple Macintosh as digital audio workstation. During the 1980ies and 90ies Jürgen composed and produced music for commercials and collaborated with various artists. As a composer he participated on some successful songs by singer/songwriter Dirk Busch who was also his partner in writing the German lyrics for the animation film “Anastasia” in 1997.  In 2006 four LPs by “Thirsty Moon” were re-released on CD. That was the cause for Jürgen’s wish to create his own musical project. The compositions were developed on the computer and after a long break he returned to playing electric guitar and also recorded some vocal parts. In reference to the old band “Thirsty Moon” the project was named “Back to the moon”. The first album “Dreamcatcher” mainly concentrated on space themes and was released in 2007.

Although this is not a concept album the subject is running like a red line through the whole production. Beginning with the ironical "Wave and smile" and ending with the sound collage of "Street View" which is also a tribute to Thirsty Moon's "Big City". No wonder sometimes gloomy sounds appear. BACK TO THE MOON is using mostly synthesizers and sampling technology, but the electric guitar and some vocal parts also belong to the powerful and diversified sound of the whole album.
