Aukai
Game Trails

Aukai is the music-making moniker of German multi-instrumentalist Markus Seiber. Game Trails is his third album. He plays the ronroco, a small guitar with an intense and dramatic feel that, according to Seiber, can transport you to far away places. He is aided by strings courtesy of Bogdan Djukic, drums from Miguel Hiroshi and vocals from Lisa Morganstern. Game Trails is an album that fills you with the desire to disappear off to far away lands. 

Aukai
Reminiscence

Fresh EP from Markus Sieber’s project Aukai. Careful and minimal instrumental pieces that accompany Sieber’s Ronroco (a kind of mandolin-esque instrument) with numerous other great musicians using harp, cello, violin and more. Short pieces that linger in the mind, highly considered but free-feeling. On aukaimusic.

Aukai
Branches of Sun

Markus Sieber -- born in East Germany, 15 years prior to the dismantling of the Berlin Wall -- delivers his sophomore album as Aukai, 'Branches of Sun'. Sieber spent a month holed up in the Colorado Rockies; each day crossing a frozen lake twice, to and from his studio in a cabin in the mountains. The result is an album rich in beautifully sensual, textured tones; featuring piano, cello and Andean ronroco / baritone charango -- a guitar-like instrument in the lute family. Once again Sieber has proved himself a master of delicate, dappled, emotional music.

Aukai

German composer/producer Markus Sieber assumes the Aukai moniker for his debut LP after moving away from his recent career in acting. He manages to channel the drama of his last profession through cinematic, orchestrated acoustic ambiences evoking the feeling of travel and memories of time spent in natural surroundings, all of this subtly enhanced by electronics. Enticing!
