Matthias Wichtrup is influenced by many musicians from different genres, especially Progressive Rock and Folk. You will find Classical elements as well as Rock and Blues in his music, with some pieces featuring very complex compositions and a variety of different atmospheres, spaces, and colors. Other songs are ballads performed solo on a piano or acoustic guitar, and others are straight Rock tunes with driving guitar riffs or Symphonic-Rock elements.
This Instrumental Progressive Rock piece opens with light percussions and soft sound collages. The main part focuses on wide keyboard improvisation before it opens into a world of open spaces and atmospheres. In the final part, the guitar joins in and brings it to a powerful final.

A beautiful ballad written as a tribute to the artist's father. Soulful and melodic, peaceful and tender. Poignant and caring music, expressing love and feelings of depth and nostalgia for a life lived well. Solemn, stirring and graceful, remeniscing and taking a look back to better times.

Art Rock Instrumental piece that begins with beautiful thunder, rain, lightening and light percussion.

A song about changes. People are changing all the time and sometimes they don't even notice. The song contains ballad parts and powerful instrumental parts with guitar and synthesizer sounds chasing and each other. Male Vocals, Rock, Progressive Rock
A beautiful song that Matthias wrote for his son. Full of love and tenderness. Lovely for scenes depicting a father singing to his son about the important things in life, and of an undying love. Promise-filled and melancholic and about what waits ahead in life. Male Vocals, Rock, Soft Rock
