Freigeweht, free blown?

When I first heard some this album it was on the radio and the announcer said the word loosely translates into set free by the wind, which sounds much better.

However you take it this is one of those intersections between Eno (Brian) style ambient and jazz. It's a very atmospheric album musically. Bruninghause makes good use of the synthesizer (model unknown) and a lot of his piano work is very textural. And since in addition to a drummer, he is accompanied only by Wheeler playing flugelhorn and Hoff on oboe and English horn, perhaps "free blown" is sort of a tongue in cheek joke.
