'À DEUX' - Solo piece for vibraphone
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 .
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!
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.
