We, Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross and Volker Regner, would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Lothar Gärtner, who passed away after a long illness on Saturday the 3rd of December 2005.
Lothar was a true lover of music and had a strong vision of what he wanted to release on the three record labels he founded: the well known German independent Strange Ways, Sireena and more recently his new company Phantasmagoria. All of these labels were committed to releasing high quality independent music which Lothar personally believed in.
We thank him for releasing our own CD Deep Horizon in 2004, and it is a CD we are extremely proud of. Without Lothar it wouldn't have been possible.
We miss him greatly and would like to express our admiration for a man who did so much to further the cause of independent music. His legacy will live on in the music he championed.
