13 Ghost Stories - An interesting project from Jean Marc Lederman

"13 Ghost Stories". "You can come back to earth for ONE day, as a ghost. What do you do?"

On March 1st 2019 a really interesting release will come out from Dependent Records. 

"13 Ghost Stories" is the idea that is coming true, of Jean-Marc Lederman. Jean-Marc Lederman is a keyboard player and producer, know from his work with several bands like Fad Gadget, The The, Gene Loves Jezebel, The Weatherman, Ghost and Writer.

Jan had a question.

"You can come back to earth for ONE day, as a ghost. What do you do?"

And he asked that question to 13 artists, each one with different influences and background, coming from 10 different countries. Their answer to this question came in a form of lyrics, which he then combined with the appropriate music from his musical universe. The answers were as different as the vocalists who participated in "13 Ghost Stories": From Elena Alice Fossi (Kirlian Camera, Spectra*paris) to Mark Hockings (MESH), RASC (Rotersand), Darrin Huss (Psyche) or JP Aston (Jene Loves Jezebel) and Agi Taralas (Our Banshee).

The compositions range from light and friendly relaxed synthpop, over melancholic dark ballads to disturbing experimental soundscapes bearing automated 'ghost messages'. 

In addition to the musical performances, Julianne Reagan (All About Eve), Rodney Orpheus (Cassandra Complex) and comic writer Christina Z. (Whitchblade comics et alia) contributed short stories to Lederman’s concept. These appear in the limited edition of "13 Ghost Stories", a 36-page hardcover artbook limited to only 300 copies, also featuring haunting ghost shots by graphic artist Erica Hinyot, inspired by the famous photographer Albert Renger-Patzsch. A bonus CD of the artbook contains 7 more songs ("7 Emanations").

13 Ghost Stories will be out in two editions on March 1st. The one is "Jean-Marc Lederman Experience - 13 Ghost Stories Book 2-CD" including a bonus disc (2CD in hardcover book 18x18 cm, 48 pages with 7 bonus tracks and additional short stories,300 copies available) and the second is  "Jean-Marc Lederman Experience - 13 Ghost Stories Digipack CD".
