The photo is taken during a recording session for a new Jazz album by Gutfleisch-Schürmann-Frey feat. Hendrik Meurkens called Roundabout. The recording took place in one of those recording joints which may look a bit improvised but is able to deliver a nice quality recording. What I like about the picture is that I could somewhat organize this crazy space and show the musicians in what comes to a decisive and unguarded moment where they all showed a different expression or gesture triggered by listening to the take. The picture gives a glimpse about the work and emotions going on behind creating something which ultimately will be judged by the feelings the music is able to transcend and evoke.
