Photos and stories from Markus Wormstorm’s “Not I, but a friend” album launch in Bishopscourt last night.

One moment you feel like you’re riding on the back of a Brontosaurus on your way to an unknown adventure. The next, you feel like you’re spiralling down a wormhole into another dimension. Somehow the soundscapes of Markus Wormstorm capture an essence of another world trapped in one’s own mind, especially with Inge Beckmann’s voice reading excerpts of his novel in one’s subconscious.

Last night, Orms Connect was present at Wormstorm’s album launch, “Not I, but a friend”. Not sure how we arrived at the abandoned mansion in Bishopscourt, we found ourselves walking down a crooked path, lit by candles in brown paper bags. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly blonde girl with “have an album”.

So many people in such a free space – the most beautiful view one could imagine. In the pit of beautiful nature, with ambient lighting and intriguing music, artwork carefully placed on the abandoned walls, and motion art playing in the dark room next door, it is clear that Wormstorm is a man of many talents – bringing different dimensions together.
