Homegrown music with a healthy dose of whimsy

What does "aging gracefully" mean to you?

Is it something that happens automatically? Is it something that others do for you? Is it something that can be avoided? Did you claim an eponymus URL hoping that the domain would eventually be bought by a wealthy retirement community for a five-figure sum, but in the meantime you wanted to do something with it?

The album "In Würde altern" was created in the Corona summer of 2020 - the idea of compiling a solo album with numerous guest contributions from long-time friends and companions had been simmering in the back of Aachen musician Moritz Schippers' mind for a long time. Due to the pandemic-inflicted loss of all performance opportunities, projects and social contacts, the time and peace were suddenly available.

While three pieces were created completely from scratch during this time, most already existed in various stages of completion. However, with many inspiring contributions from musicians who had been on stage with him for more than 10 years, each piece was completely revamped. The album is a kind of retrospective of the first decade of Moritz Schippers' musicianship - have the songs aged gracefully?
