Welcome to my new website. I copied the last posts of my old blog here, but can´t copy the comments. The old blog will be available soon as an archive link, too.
And to all who bought “Foundation”: What´s your favorite track?
Yesterday evening i finished the mastering, Kai Hoffmann finished the cover design and everything went to the production house. I just now controlled the printing data and gave the final “go”....

Values are the foundation of society.
Dear friends of energetic and emotional electronic music, it is my pleasure to tell you that i am working on a new CD for you. For now there is a dozen of ideas that might become full songs - or not. My deadline is so inhumanly close, that not every work will get finished meaning i can´t tell you how many songs the album will have. Definitely not 13. Maybe much less. But: It will be available next year. Let me rephrase that: It will be available NEXT MONTH
Planned release date is end of january - only six weeks from now…
I also intended to document my progress with videos, but due to the very limited amount of time i haven’t manage to do so… maybe next week…
Although i have always gathered music ideas in the last two years the main catalyst for that upcoming selection of songs is my expanded analog modular setup. I even did drums with that chaos of cables. I also went much further with my concept of “meta sounds” leaving typical EDM schemes of separated synth, pad, bass and drums behind me… i had drumloops or even modules triggering pads and modulating bass and sent everything through a filter that was audio modulated by an oscillator that followed the cords… just as an example… toying around.. and:
Finding my voice
Today, with supercomputers in our hands and access to tens of thousands of sounds by a mouse click the hunger for fresh, unheard voices to use as an artist is stronger than ever in me… and if everyone is doing it the simple way resulting in sounding like all the others - fine for them, but not for me… to be clear: I don´t want “complicated” i lust for diverse, unheard, complex - thats a big difference… but soon you may hear and can judge for yourself if you like…
to be continued…
