“milkwood… how might that sound?”
Be prepared.

“Behind VOIDE is the Cologne-based musician and composer Axel Schmidt.”

After many years as a drummer and percussionist in various bands and projects, he has dedicated himself to his musical roots under this project name.
Influenced by his enthusiasm for melodic structures in early music, northern folk and jazz on the ECM label, he gives the music of Voide equal space and yet creates tangible closeness and intimacy.
With the album “Milkwood”, he has created piano miniatures that are united by a multi-layered, melancholy undertone and that bridge the gap between ambient music and neoclassical music.

The artistic approach and the album title are inspired by the radio play “under milk wood” by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and its interweaving of different voices and speech melodies, images and onomatopoeia.
