Breakdown On Paradise Blvd. – DVD (limited release)

breakdown on paradise blvd.

we did the show in early 2003. recorded the material in 2003 in amsterdam at studio le roy.

I mixed everything at realistic sound and it sounded too good to be true. but after that I was off to other projects so quickly that the material ended up sitting in my studio for all these years collecting dust.

in 2008 I packed the project on my bike and headed to msm studios in munich to let them see and hear the material. the music was finished. only the visual material we used at the show was as raw as it was 5 years ago.

they listened only for a little bit and said it would be a shame to release it in just stereo sound. if it was to become a DVD, as I had suggested, it should be surround mega double triple fat sounding! ok, I gave them the thumbs up and a couple of weeks later they let me listen to what they’ve done. I was blown away! to have all the little sound effects created on two computers combined with acoustic bass and a voice (hester boverhuis) from heaven in surround sound is like being the main character invented by william burroughs himself.

the video material ended up being a 40 minute video installation that’ll flip all your senses!

the DVD it now out on filmbaby.com

una sera come un altra – shortfilm

carlo magaletti asked me to write music for his theatrical short film “una sera come un altra” in 2008. after fooling around with a couple of musical sketches that didn’t work with his idea of the film, I picked up the bass and just played some improvised soundscapes for him. within 2 minutes we found what he wanted.

so we experimented with sounds on the bass and finally went into the studio to record a theme we liked together with ulrich wangenheim. we basically chose one theme and improvised with it, giving it a new color everytime we played it. we recorded at realistic sound in munich with florian oestreicher.

finally I went back and built some beats around one of the improvisations for the end credits of the movie.

carlo showed the film in july 2008 at an art gallery in munich. it will go out to some film festivals and we’re curious how it will do…

I also have to mention the fabulous lead actress katja lechthaler, who plays the role of a woman who is getting more and more terrified by the shalowness of her surrounding companions.

I’ll keep you posted!

let’s get it on tonight

the 2005/06 recording „let’s get it on tonight“ is my first collaboration with new york rapper jus nyce. it is being promoted during the soccer worldchampionship in germany in 2006 and receives about 59000 online hits.

let's get it on tonight

let's get it on tonight

the site it was promoted at was called “wet-tshirt-worldcup” where you could let girls from various nations dance to the song, pour some water over their shirts and all that sort of fun.

the site is no longer online, though…

I recorded the song in a friend’s basement in brooklyn and for the vocals we went to famous quad studios on time square.

I did two versions of the song, each with different backing vocals. one version features dutch singer aafje, the other new york singer mia rebel who is crazy cool!
