A pride of lines

My patreon page is up and running. I even have one first patron already (a great big happy shout-out to you, right there)! On the page I’ve created an assemblage of sections (called tiers) with different topics, which access can be bought to with money. In one of these sections, for example, I put everything about a book of poems I am making, documenting even little steps. Another section will feature an interview with the engineer, who built and designed the monitor speakers I use. And there is also sections about music: digital, physical, past, present, future, finished, unfinished, identifiable, unidentifiable. Obvioulsy, I’m not going to balk at any bonanza type of turn of events caused by a stampede of friends of friends or wealthy aunts of friends of friends or music loving colleagues of wealthy aunts of friends of friends… storming the place. But what is actually more important to me, is that I think I kind of like the concept of it. It’s a collection of works, stories, parts of processes that happen anyway and that might be interesting to someone sometime.




Dear Folks,

’bout 5 years have gone by since I last put out a song or video let alone played a show. However, the project never stopped existing and I never stopped writing music. Half a year ago I started writing a new album and it will still take a long time until it’s finished but I’ve decided to share with you some of the process for as long it lasts. Saying this, here’s the first bit of information that strikes me as worth sharing: The musical project you’ve come to know as Annalena Bludau, is no longer called that. Its new name is Brknln. Whatever platform you might be trying to search me out on* – those are the letters. Here’s some links to save you the typing:

BANDCAMP for old songs now and new ones eventually.

INSTAGRAM for snapshots and hashtags.

PATREON to join the club.

Thank’s for reading! I’ll be back soon.


*you might be wondering: And Facebook? What about Facebook? Isn’t she doing Facebook?? Actually, I am. But Facebook hasn’t allowed me to change my name, which is why I am not using my artist page at the moment.





Touring/future touring

After successfully finishing Nicolai Schorr’s record release tour in October, successfully financing and producing my new album via Startnext (with the indispensable help of Franziska von den Driesch, Christian Heinz, Alexander böll, Nicolai Schorr, Jari 1 and Lennart Thiem) and rather successfully playing one last tour of the year 2013, I decided to give myself a break and call it a successful one. The year, not the break. Then again… the break was pretty successful, too… . Anyway, I will be on tour again at the end of March and beginning of April 2014. Nicolai Schorr will be my band! Then after that we’ll just go on touring until the middle of April, switching roles. I hope to see you somewhere out there! If you would like to book either one of us for a show contact us at swotfr.booking@googlemail.com and we’ll work something out!
For show dates check the future!

Fall-Tour 2013

Dear all,

in mid-October my friend Nicolai Schorr and myself will be on Tour in Germany. We will be visiting many cities, to be announced in more detail in the SHOWS section of this page soon. There are many things special about this tour. Firstly, this tour is all about Nicolai Schorr’s first official album release. The release he is releasing is called ‘Release’. It will be out on October 18 2013 on the Hamburg-based record label Insular Music. Consequentially, our October-venture is his Record-Release-Tour. Secondly, I will be supporting Nicolai, not only by playing my own set of songs but also by playing drums on his set! To name only two.

I tell you, you shouldn’t miss it. I mean, I miss a lot of things people tell me not to miss, but don’t miss this one. Check out the SHOWS section and find the city you live in or if that doesn’t exist a city close to yours and choose:
