Recording finished 05 // June // 2021

We finished the recording of 10 new pieces for the upcoming album Skills.
The new pieces are written for 3 French horns, Tuba and String quartet.
I had the pleasure to work again with Mondeana Quartet from Leipzig.
Among the wonderful brass players was Jörg Brückner, who is one of the best French horn players, I have ever heard.
I am now collecting ideas for the visual work, that will accompany the single releases and the live concerts. The Icelandic visual artis Mani M. Sigfusson will join the team once again, after our collaboration on I Eat the Sun and Drink the Rain.
Thanks to a succesful Kickstarter campaign, I was able to make the most out of this Corona standstill. Thank you very much to all supporters! The releases of singles from the album will start end of September this year. The album has to wait until February 2022.

crowdfunding for new album 17 // March // 2021

I just started a Crowdfunding campaign for my new album.
It will be called SKILLS. I would like to kindly ask you to become part of this new journey. This is, what SKILLS it is about:
I have always been fascinated, by human's ability to refine and master crafts -
sometimes to adapt to a changing world, sometimes to create art, sometimes just for its own sake. I dedicate SKILLS to this fascination.
Up until now we have been able to share our art thanks to the support of everyone, who has bought tickets to our concerts and listened to our music.
This musician-audience relationship has been an incredibly productive one throughout the past years, but this last year has highlighted that it is also a fragile one.
This is why we put SKILLS on the crowdfunding platform ‘Kickstarter’.
Please have a look and learn more about the idea behind it.
With your crucial help and involvement, we can realise it together, and I look forward very much to sharing it with you when it is complete.
