New track: Music for Meditation

I was looking for some background sounds for meditation and I couldn’t find the right one for me. So I said to myself: “Why not write something by yourself?” The result is something I originally wanted to release as Graham Loop, because again there is a lot of automation and randomness. But in the end I decided to release it as Lagomorpha. And for free.

New track: “River”

I’m very productive at the moment. Last week I’ve finished a track called “Dance With Somebody” for my Alter Ego Graham Loop and now I’ve finished another new track! It’s called “River” and you can listen to it on YouTube. For the first time I’ve uploaded a track to amuse.io, which is some kind of virtual record label. They have an app, where you can upload your music and your artwork and they publish it on Spotify, iTunes,… FOR FREE! And if they think the music could be a commercial success, they give you a record deal. Sounds like an interesting concept. I wanted to try this app and so I wrote “River”, which is now waiting for its approval. Let’s what will happen.

Instant Download for Patrons

But until they upload it to the stores, you can download the track from my Patreon-Page. It’s “Patrons only”, so if you join me on Patreon, you will get this track.

And you can watch the video with the music in it on YouTube. Hope you like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Epic track for Eintracht Frankfurt

“Eintracht Frankfurt” is a huge german sportsclub. They’ve celebrated their 50.000st member with a really nice video which included my music. A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to join this project and of course I said “Hell yes!”. ๐Ÿ˜‰ He wanted something epic. With strings and drums and horns and all those stuff that gives you goosebumps. And what makes Hollywood-Movies feel so… Hollywood-ish.

Something for the stadium

The result is this two minutes long video which premiered last weekend at a big event in Frankfurt. They also released it on Facebook and on YouTube and they play a shorter version before every game at home and in the halftime. Pretty cool! Now I have something in common with the great Hans Zimmer: He played live at the Commerzbank Arena in Frankfurt last summer. And now you can hear my music there, too! And yes, I’m a little bit proud because of all of this. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, here it is, with an epic soundtrack with lots of strings and drums and horns. Enjoy!

And if you’re more into my electronic stuff: Have a look at this 12-minutes long track for my Alter Ego Graham Loop.

Dolores O’Riordan

A few minutes ago I’ve realized that I’ve met Dolores O’Riordan in 2002. The memory came back when I saw a photo of Dolores which I shot during her visit at the radio-station where I’m working. It’s so sad that she’s gone. I really loved their music, especially the early songs “Dreams” and “Linger”. “Dreams” is my alltime-fav of the band. I love the drums in this song. When someone wrote me yesterday, that Dolores O’Riordan is dead, it felt like a part of my youth has died. Her voice was always around me during an important time of my life. Thank you for lots of nice moments which I always remember when I listen to your music!

Okay, it’s going on and on: Today I’ve added some SEO-Stuff to this website. I hope this will attract some more visitors to my website. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve added schema.org-code to the homepage and to the discography-pages. Let’s see if Google will be impressed and decides to rank my page better.

Something from the good ol’ days

While I’m doing this nerd-things I’m listening to the new album by “Der Dritte Raum“, a fantastic techno-artist from the golden days of clubbing and techno. He’s celebrating his 25th anniversary with a remix-album. Time flies. If you don’t know him by now, you should definitely give his music a try!

Yes, it’s pretty cool to code a website completely on your own and to play around with some HTML-Frameworks and stuff. But in the end: It’s much easier to run a website with a CMS. And that’s why I’m back at WordPress. With my old Layout from 2015. And it feels great! ๐Ÿ™‚

And if you don’t know what to do next: Take a look at this nice video. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Techno-Video: “Spending My Time”

Okay, it’s 3 months old, but this News-Section is new so have to fill it. And that’s where my “new” video comes in: I’ve created an experimental techno-track called “Spending My Time” last december. It’s based on a sample from swedish Pop-Band “Roxette”. But don’t worry if you can’t hear it in the track: “Spending My Time” is only BASED on this sample, but the sample isn’t in the track.

I used the fantastic “Flesh” by Tim Exile in this track. Most of the work was done with “Flesh”. A very inspiring tool! If you thought about buying it: I can only recommend it! I had a lot of fun writing this track with it.

Experimental Techno

“Spending My Time” is a Techno-Track: Very Four-To-The-Floor, absolutely danceable and very catchy. If you heard it once, you won’t forget it. It starts very minimal and evolves over the time. The visuals, I used in the video, are from the fantastic Beeple. I really love his work! You should visit him atย http://www.beeple-crap.com.

“Spending My Time” is available on iTunes, Spotify and all the other platforms – and of course on YouTube. And here it is:
