“Digital Sunrise” is released

After two years in the making my new album “Digital Sunrise” is released today.

It is the result of two years of work and experimenting with different styles in instrumental music.

My studies took me from the early electronic sounds of the ’70s to the House beats of the early ’90s to the more recent emergence of the post-classical music coming out of Northern Europe.

You can buy and listen to the album in my Bandcamp store.

Hope you enjoy it.

My new album “Pheonox” is released

After more than a year in the making my new album “Pheonox” with a new collection of ambient tracks was released this weekend.

The inspiration for the tracks came from a variety of sources – modern dance, films and soundtracks, theatre plays and ethnic music – that create a blended soundtrack accompanying our daily lives.

Listen to the album in our Bandcamp store.
There you can also download two tracks – “Illuminated” and “Heliocentric” – for free or buy the complete album.

Winter 2012: new songs, a dance and a new film project

Lots of activities happening this winter. I am close to finishing three new songs that I will be posting soon. Just finalising the melody and the lyrics for:

  • Hurricane
  • Black Feather
  • Emerald Sun

Also I am working with a new group of artists on a dance project for the Melbourne Fringe Festival. It is a group of very inspiring and dedicated artists and I am looking forward to working with them. Check out their website:

And I am back to working on film music. Together with a very talented film maker from Brazil I am working on the music for a documentation. Watch this space…

“Overload”

My next track is called “Overload”, a dark instrumental that could be used over the end credits of a movie. I sampled the beat from Led Zeppelin’s classic “When The Levee Breaks” – the synthesizers are a mix of different sequencers from the 80s that fit pretty well with the core beat. The voices are taken from the air traffic communications of a major airport overseas. You can listen to the track in the music player on the right – enjoy !

“Luck Of The Draw”

The second track is finished. A nice laid back tune with an electric piano, some strings that slowly build up and a Spanish guitar at the end. I used an electric guitar with a Wah-Wah effect throughout the song. The voice took me some time to record since I wanted to use a reverb effect to strengthen it a bit. If you ask me what the lyrics are about – I just took a piece of paper and wrote the first words that came into my mind. Enjoy the track – it is no. 2 in the music player on the right.
