Since September 2008 Annett Böhnisch complements thesoundofABAKprojectwith her acoustic guitar and enhances it with her highly imaginative arrangements .
Early in 2009 Krause and Böhnisch developed the idea to set lyrics of ancient German poets to music. Thus ABAK Projekts save these wonderful poems from oblivion by presenting them to a broad audience within a contemporary context. Poets as Ludwig Uhland, Joseph von Eichendorff or Arno Holz, titans of literature as Friedrich Schiller, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe or Heinrich Heine are honoured on this CD. To listen to the music of ABAK Projekt means to experience calm and serenity and to spiritually dive into a long forgotten ancient world.
