1k Recordings is proud to present Space is the Place. This is the first US release of this historic concert of solo and duo soundscapes by Tim Motzer and Markus Reuter—which was set in a massive soundstage in South Philadelphia in 2013. It was filmed originally for a 1k Sessions broadcast, and performed to a live limited seated audience. The concert begins as Philadelphian guitarist, Tim Motzer, and German touch guitarist, 
Markus Reuter, engage in evocative solo soundscapes that move into their stratospheric duo performance.

'Space is the Place'—invokes Sun Ra's famous mantra. The phrase is re-contextualized for spacious music in a vast space.

Recorded Sunday, October 6, 2013 at Studio A Soundstage, Philadelphia
