Behind the Gardens, Behind the Wall, Under the Tree...

"This album marked the start of our adventure, the entry into this very different world of sound. The title is like giving someone directions: "You will find us behind The Garden, behind The Wall, under The Tree..." Recording this album we worked completely cut off from the world, in the cellars of the Sinus Studios in the historical part of the city of Berne; they are more than 300 years old. In the shelter of this creative "womb", it was easy to lose track of time and space."
