DAILY MIRROR is the musical collaboration of Wolfgang Muthspiel (composer and guitarist) and the Norwegian singer/songwriter Rebekka Bakken. Based on english texts of the Austrian poet Bernd Hagg and extended with lyrics of Rebekka and Wolfgang, the music is composed specifically for her remarkable voice and persona, accompanied and sometimes illustrated by a first class jazz combo.
It lives in a stylistically open place, where formal and melodic virtues of the pop song meet the differentiated sophistication of a modern jazz band: Chris Cheek on saxophones, Scott Colley on bass and Brian Blade on drums.
For Bakken and Muthspiel the project is a meeting place for their musical preferances and differences. The lyrics often deal with internal conditions of daily life.

DAILY MIRROR marks a new phase in the musical lives of the Norwegian singer/songwriter Rebekka Bakken, (born 1970 in Oslo) and the Austrian guitarist/composer Wolfgang Muthspiel.
Rebekka Bakken came to New York in 1995, working with her own bands and compositions in various New York venues. Her unique approach to songs emphasizes an emotionally charged communication of the text, using many shades and colors of her voice while creating a collection of personas on stage. More than merely singing a song she becomes it, taking the listener with her on a compelling journey. Parts of here extensive songbook are central to the repertoire of Daily Mirror.

 
 

In the words of the London Times, "Wolfgang Muthspiel is in many ways a quintessential 1990s musician, combining a flawless technique honed by classical training with a restless musical imagination as likely to derive inspiration from Bach as from the blues or the Beatles." His highly personal musical language embraces openness with a compositional structure beyond derivatives. This language reflects Muthspiel's various influences-from Messiaen, Glenn Gould, Bach's lute works, renaissance choral and Austrian folk music to Miles Davis, Prince and Bill Evans.
In November, the first recording of DAILY MIRROR was released on "material records", followed by 3 tours in Europe.
A remix project called DAILY MIRROR REFLECTED was released in September 2001.
