Stadtstudio Projekt

In the summer, together with a bunch of wonderful musicians and a great team from Staufer Festspiele, I was fortunate to make the 'Stadtstudio'-project happen in Göppingen. We had a lot of fun and many beautiful interactive encounters with people form Göppingen. The videos gives some nice impressions. For more information visit the Stadtstudio-page.

'À DEUX' - Solowerk für Vibraphon

I'm very thankful that I was given the opportunity to write a new piece for solo vibraphone commissioned by Philharmonie Köln (KölnMusik). The piece 'À Deux' will be part of the new program 'Folie á Deux' of percussionist Vanessa Porter. It will be premiered on 20.09.2020 at Kölner Philharmonie.

'Zieh' Sie auf'

'Zieh' Sie Auf' is another song, produced during the lockdown at home. Although I'm not a big fan of wearing a mask, I think it makes sense and helps to protect yourself and others. Have fun watching!

'Dance and be Alright'

Here is the new video 'Dance and be Alright'. Feel free to sing and dance along and forget this current mess for a moment. Please share the video on Youtube, Facebook and Instagram, if you like it. Stay at home and stay safe!

'Use your Elbow'

With 'Use your elbow', I've tried to write an uplifting song in these difficult times to lift up peoples spirits. Unfortunately times are changing so fast that we are way past the 'elbow-time'. I'm still very happy about the many positive reactions to the video. That's why I'm already working on a new song. I feel that writing music can be my contribution to help the people out there forgetting their sorrows - at least, for a short moment. Stay tuned and follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Youtube, to see the new video, once it is out there.
