Info zu Anno 1972 - Written in the Sky (Remastered)

Demon Thor war in den 70er Jahren, trotz nur kurzer Existenz, eine der aufsehenerregendsten kontinentalen Rockgruppen: erste deutsche Band in der legendären »Musikladen« TV-Sendung, erster Auftritt überhaupt im Circus Kronebau in München, Musikawards aus Frankreich und England, weltweite Veröffentlichung der beiden LPs bei United Artists.

Die Gruppe war eine Fusion der Schweizer Rockszene zwischen Tommy Fortmann und Krokodil, sowie den Sängern Geff Harrison, Peter Bischof und Oliver Freytag.

Das Album enthält Titel aus den Alben Anno 1972 und Written In The Sky. Produziert wurden die Titel in den Dierks Studios von Dieter Dierks.

"Written in the Sky" ist ein gutes Beispiel dafür, dass auch wenn auf einem Album aus der ersten Hälfte der 70er Jahre ausgiebig ein Mellotron zum Einsatz kommt, das Ergebnis nicht automatisch klassischer Prog ist. Mellotronenthusiasten können hier natürlich wegen des Titelstücks trotzdem zugreifen." (, Achim Breiling)

Thomas Fortmann
was born in Switzerland and became a successful songwriter during the 70s. He wrote his first hit at the age of 16, which was followed by over a hundred titles released in more than 27 countries.

Famous German rock stars such as Udo Lindenberg, Love Generation, Jürgen Drews and others, as well as British artists such as Alexis Korner and Italian singer Daniela Davoli have recorded his songs. He composed the music for the musical Tell (1977), which created a scandal in Switzerland. The record made it into all German-speaking charts.

At the age of 26, Thomas abandoned his career as a rock musician and dedicated himself to further studies in composition and instrumentation. This period formed the foundation for many chamber works, Lieder, two Symphonies, Concerti, an Oratorio and three music-plays. He received scholarships and commissions from the towns of Zurich and Bern, the Swiss government, the European Union, the Opera of Zurich, Open Opera St. Gallen, Mozart Festival Trento, University of Houston,

Connaissez-vous Basel-Riehen, Espace Nuithonie Fribourg, Salerno Pianofestival, InterHarmony for Carnegie Hall and many others.

In the mid-80s Thomas and his family moved to Tuscany where he founded the Accademia Amiata and its Festival “Toscana delle Culture”.

The music of Thomas Fortmann does not subscribe to any particular school of thought. He studied the various composition techniques, but maintained a critical point of view towards them. This led to the development of a notably personal style, often uniting different, sometimes even contrary impulses of the modern. Formalistic concepts seem to serve him mainly as a method of transportation and as a play-ground, resulting in very original ideas. It is, however, always important to him, despite the frequent use of complex structures, to directly communicate with the listener and make an emotional impact.
