Ghost Rider – Feinstaub ist dein Staub

The newest Marvel Comic movie on the market is Ghost Rider. I have to admit, that aside from one story in “Gespenster Geschichten” that I read about 15 years ago, I have never taken the time to really read any comics about this character, although I peeked into the early volumes at one point or […]

Kraftwerk – Das Model (Schrodt & Bucsics Cover)

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] A great song originally by Kraftwerk, covered using a Gameboy, a C64 (both played Markus), a MC505 and a Virus B (played by me) as vocoder, with the lyrics performed by Markus who kept forgetting the words…;) A lo-fi cover of a great old song.

One Must Fall 2097 Menu Theme Remix

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] One Must Fall 2097 was and still is a great game, with the community at www.omf.com being one of the greatest game community I know of…even though it is a quiet after the limited success of One Must Fall: Battlegrounds, which I consider to be a really good […]

Alesis M1 Active Mark 2

Ahhh…my dear speakers. A little on the bassy side, but incredibly crisp sounding and (if you let them) LOUD! These for producing and getting the feel for a track, and just listening, and the HD515 for the details and fine-tuning. Yay! (That in between is my Kyocera FS-920…a fine black/white laser printer with cheap toner.)

Above the Purple Clouds

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] This is an original dance track that won me a compo in my times at Trax in Space. The site is no longer alive, but it has hosted my songs for a few years and had a nice community with lots of enthusiastic trackers and musicians. I miss […]

Liquid Skies

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] A downbeat track, with lots of harmonies and an erratic beat…written during troubled and melancholic times…a very prominent flute theme and moody strings.

evolution MK 361C

This is my cheap yet very useful and complete MIDI control keyboard. I use it for experimenting an recording lines, but for experimenting my electronic piano is a little more intuitive. It has 61 keys and 16 MIDI control knobs, and of course a pitch bend and a mod wheel. Sufficient for now, but might […]

Play My Game (Prodigy Tribute)

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] I like The Prodigy. I like them a lot. So much, I wrote a track, and then realized I had used the harmonies from “Breathe” subconsciously…I could not pretend I did not, so I decided to dedicate it to them. The recording got a bit long, but this […]

Omega 2001

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] A quite long time ago, a friend and I had a really nice series of parties called “Omega”…it must have been around seven parties or something we did, most of them quite big. Of course we had a hymn. Of course we did a remake of that hymn […]

Sennheiser HD515

I love these headphones. They have an incredibly clear sound image. I just wish they were a little heavier on the bass, but they’re great for creating brilliant soundscapes because they are incredibly clear in the high frequency areas.
