Mar Malade are
Alexander Hauer & Michèl M. Almeida
»We wrote and recorded our songs wherever we felt at home. In the kitchen, on a farm or in an old children's room, where we found all sorts of dusty instruments - even “Bachflöten“ - we would use to fool around with. And before we could even think about it, »MAR MALADE« was there and really wants nothing else than to take everyone on a little trip to dream away.
All the instruments, all the sounds you hear on the record were played, recorded and produced by just the two of us.
Even the background noise of a bar in the Intro of »Marmalade« was created by our two voices and a table full of glasses and bottles. Every laughter, every argument, every entering-the-room you hear in these 23 seconds is one of us, pretending to be part of a little crowd awaiting some music to be gently played.
Just for the brass, we needed a little help from our friend CATT. And Paul Rundel played some wistful violins.«
