KNK // Vinyl Dubplate // Etoka Records

I`m really excited to share my latest project with you. “Knk” has just been released on Liverpool based Etoka Records, digitally and as super limited Vinyl Dubplate with hand printed covers, hand stamped and numbered.

About “KNK”:
“KNK” started more as a sounddesign project, since i wanted to provide my new sampler with interesting sounds and samples. All percussive elements are created with tape pops and cracks and hisses, which I recorded from old tapes, sampled and heavily modified, also click`n cut sounds with my 2 noise modules.

Combined with hypnotic chords these two tracks grew quickly a life of their own.
Only 10 dubplates so better be quick if you want to be proud owner of one ;)

The Moon – Sonic Soundscape Lab

My new album “The Moon” has just been released on Sonic Soundscape Lab. Available digitally and as cassette tape.

About “The Moon”:
The Moon” is a narrative journey and a vivid soundtrack. It is radio drama – as well as electronic track. The music is arranged around original radio messages from the Apollo 8 mission. Apollo 8 was the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth’s Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth.

A soundtrack to a movie never made, a modern version of a classical radio play with contemporary electronic music.

The cassette tape is a high bias ferro tape, duplicated by Analogcut Mastering Berlin. Hand printed, hand stamped and hand numbered. Booklet with liner notes. One Apollo 8 mission badge sticker. Packaged in a metalic silver zip lock bag, inspired by the space food packaging on the International Space Station.

I hope you enjoy the flight.

Naihehe // Digital album + cassette tape // Etoka Records

My first full length album has just been released on Liverpool based Etoka Records. It is available on cassette tape and as digital release.

“Naihehe” is inspired by huge caves around the world. Enormous echo spaces, cavernous spaces, versatile reverberation, natural surroundings and heavily modified sound and field recordings: from slowed down bat sounds to water and wind in caves to clicks, noises and slipping rocks.

Xars // Tape Release // Sonic Soundscape Lab

My new tape and digital EP is out now on Sonic Soundscape Lab, newly found sublabel of Superb Recordings.

I am still fascinated by the sound reverberation of huge underground caves, vast spaces, natural surroundings, as well as sound reverberation in human made architecture.

In “Xars” I develop the idea in the direction of deep and dubbed out techno, creating more architectural spaces, using sound and field recordings of big city spaces such as garages and cellars, as well as nature recordings.

I push more in the direction of using tape pops, crackles and interferences as well as click n cut sounds from my two noise modules to create significant percussive sounds as well as lots of field and sound recordings – from heavily modified nature recordings to garage door openers, steps, stones and glitches.
