Clean Start – aka the Dishwasher

So this one evening I go to the kitchen to grab a drink and the dishwasher is running.
And it’s making this crazy, complex, watery beat that actually gets me dancing (not my first drink 😉 )
I run and get my handheld recorder and record this:

Which inspired me so much that I had to sit down and make it into a track. The dishwasher is slowly fading in from 0:30 to 1:00 and then runs through the whole track as the fundament for the beat.

Thanks @ my old bandmate Buchi for recording that faaaaat metal guitar!

Downstream Voyage – Ambient&Chillout Mix

A musical journey downstream from the spring in the mountain, cascading down the hills, flowing through thick forests, deep caves, wide meadows, growing into a wide river that finally reaches the ocean.

I created this mix as musical score for a very special fractal zoom – I was fed up with all those ultra-fast zooms on youtube, so I decided to do one in slow motion and 4k, so you can actually appreciate all the details that make fractals worthwhile
Here’s the video, enjoy! – watch fullscreen and switch to 4k even if your monitor doesn’t support it, helps with the bad youtube compression! 

White Rabbit (remixed) – Deepdream Animation

My take on one of my all time favourites: Jefferson Airpane – White Rabbit.
A remix I created around 1999 – recently enhanced with a very special fractal deep dream zoom video. (more info below)

Since Google released their #deepdream algorithm I’ve been totally fascinated with the images you can generate.
The principle is futuristic but simple:
You take a computer version of a neural network (like our brain) and train it to recognize objects in photos.

Sonnentanz – Deephouse Album

This album came to life in the summer of 2006 when I discovered the Berlin underground minimal techno scene with their illegal park parties each weekend and also starting my festival career at the beloved Fusion Festival.

Relaxing & deep minimal beats to let your mind drift.

Metal Remix: Samsas Traum – Wie das Ewige Meer

I’m always interested in exploring new grounds. So when Alexander Kaschte from the german band “Samsas Traum” approached me to do a Remix EP I just went for it.
Definitely not my usual style, dark and aggressive – but I love it, very special.

Highlight:
Track Nr 6 – So wie die Wellen
I actually built a custom didgeridoo to fit the key of the song 🙂

Caprecious Beats – Hiphop Album

The reason I can make a living from producing music is because I have no real genre boundaries – kind of an “audiowhore” 😉
This doesn’t help building a career as famous musician, after all people prefer a reliable and familiar output.

But hey, that’s how I roll. So this one time – just to see if I can – I produced a track in the one genre that I probably like least. The Hiphop Track “Keep your Head up” was born in an afternoon.
Lo and behold, a few years after I released it in a stock music library the online shoe shop Zalando chose it to be the main song for one of their TV-campaigns!
Damn! Out of my 300+ tracks it’s the one and only hiphop track that I ever made to reach a broader public?!
I decided to use the momentum and created this album within 2 weeks (including some older tunes that kind of fit the genre).
It was a nice experience & the most money I ever earned with a single track.
But unless my audio-whoring ass gets paid a shitload of money again, I won’t work on Hiphop anymore.. no offense, just not my taste 😉

Personal favourit: Track 3, “Caprecious Beats”
