Finally the 2nd full length of one of the most talented ambient / electronic artists of today.
“It's rare that I'm able to give an album my fullest recommendation without trepidation. (...) Bersarin Quartett is one such album. There's nary a misstep, every potential danger has been avoided and smoothed out to present the optimal audio experience for your dollar. (...) Something this good can't possibly be real."" The Silent Ballet (8.5/ 10).
Almost all reviews concerning Bersarin Quartett’s self titled debut album chorused this paean.
Four years later he’s back with his long awaited 2nd album called “II”. After turning Bersarin Quartett with 2 befriended guest musicians into a band project in 2011 and some successful and interesting live experiences in several countries it was time to bring the fragments of songwriting of the past years together to a new 13 tracks journey.
Someone mentioned 4 years ago “This music could be written on a lonely island or onboard of a spaceship looking on our planet. Time becomes a new unit and feelings become more weight.” That’s exactly the feeling Bersarin Quartett still conveys in 2012.
References to Stars Of The Lid, Ulver's Perdition City, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore and Cinematic Orchestra are fully justified.

Carlos Cipa is a 22 year old composer/musician residing in Munich (Germany) where he is currently studying composition.
Carlos discovered his passion for music very early in his life. At the age of 6 he began taking classical piano lessons with various renowned teachers.
Ten years later after he started playing drums he became more and more interested in composition and improvisation.
In the following years he made lots of experiences in many music styles like jazz, hardcore/punk, indie rock and orchestral music.
Influenced by ERIC SATIE and CLAUDE DEBUSSY his piano music impresses particularly because of its intensity and great attention to detail. It's not only enhanced by his classical background and symphonic film music works, but also by the experiences he made as drummer in different bands.
Besides the piano he is interested in all different kinds of instruments, as experimenting takes an important role in his work. Not playing just traditional concert rooms Carlos so far shared the stage with marvelous acts Like Moritz Von Oswald Trio, Murcof, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Rivulets, This Will Destroy You Or Library Tapes. After he finished his works on final versions of his compositions Carlos Cipa joined the German experimental music label Denovali Records early 2012. His debut full length ""The Monarch and the Viceroy"" now sees the light of day.
