Cook & Stans:
The 2 friends from Germany produce various styles as they seek new challenges.
At the moment they're focusing on more chilling melodic, progressive, chill stuff with special melodies.
They try to compose music that is pleasant to the ears. They focus on keeping the song interesting over time and on creating beautiful melodies.
Cook & Stans try to present you mellow synth sounds.
Their music is meant for traveling(especially through big cities), after-party, relaxing, background, enjoying...
The music should take you on a journey.
The name „Cook & Stans“ is derived from the 1990 computer-game „Monkey Island“.
In this game Stan is a boat-dealer who‘s very passionate in selling his used boats and he talks and talks without a chance to stop him.
That reminded us on how „Stans“ from „Cook & Stans“ always tried to talk „Cook“ into buying new expensive equipment and software.
Later we named „Cook“ Cook, because he‘s a bit harsh and critical on their tunes. And in every episode of Monkey Island you meet a very angry cook.
About the friends:
„Cook & Stans“ first met at the basketball-place of their small town. The two soon developed a strong friendship lasting until today.
Both studied at university for quite some time.
This leads to the habit of a very scientific approach to music:
They‘re reading books, searching the internet, analyzing music, watching tutorials and discussing new problems and ideas on the phone (musical, but also real-life problems).
One of their most favorite topic since 2010 is of course music.
(Although Stans started much earlier).
Cook & Stans talk about how to improve sound wise. But the both also discuss composing-techniques from classical to jazz, or contemporary/electronic-music techniques.
Arrangement questions or equipment investments are also important to them.
When with their girlfriends, you can often find them with headphones in front of their PCs.
Outside the house, while on the way, they‘re listening to their tunes for issues to fix.
There are rumors that even at work they are thinking about how to improve.
