Aigues Vives

Water Of Seasons

The group started as a rock band in the early seventies. The musical style covered a broad range form classic to progressive rock and was inspired by bands such as Jethro Tull, Camel, Yes, King Crimson, Cream und Genesis.

After some shake-ups, a re-orientation took place and henceforth, Aigues Vives acted as a folk and folk-rock band and played their original compositions with acoustic and electric instruments.

The music of Aigues Vives is very unique. The songs don't have the established structure of popular folk and rock music - verse, chorus, bridge - but are more epic and progressive, even though without proliferating solo sections. The music is characterized by calm acoustic instrumentation and three and four-part vocal harmonies.

In 1981, the album Water Of Seasons was published by EWP/Aarton Music. Credits:

  • Karl Beck: bass, vocals, 12-string guitar
  • Roland Enders: electric and acoustic guitars, vocals, bass
  • Hendrikje (Coco) Horn: flute, panpipe, vocals, percussion
  • Franz Kremer: flute, acoustic guitar, vocals
