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. πŸ˜‰ 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.

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! πŸ™‚

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 atΒ 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:
