Ableton Live Workshop @Art & Maker Hamburg

Ich freue mich im Rahmen des Events Arts & Maker einen Workshop zum Thema Ableton Live und Produktion im Bereich Techno/House anbieten zu dürfen.

Der Eintritt ist kostenlos, wer das Gefühl hat das er etwas mitnehmen konnte ist aber gerne eingeladen eine Spende in den Hut zu werfen.

Der Workshop richtet sich gleichermaßen an Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene, ich werde den Nerdtalk auf das nötigste zu beschränken und allgemeine Fragestellungen und Arbeitsweisen vorstellen die auch genauso auf andere Plattformen anwendbar und für jeden verständlich sind.

Dazu gibt es einen ca. einstündigen Vortrag in dem Workflows und Konzepte eine professionellen Produktion vorgestellt werden. Dabei gibt es unter anderem Einblick in eine fertige Produktion die wir dann gemeinsam Analysieren.

Beatproducing Workshop at “Rapgewühl”

This Weekend i´m going to host a Workshop about Beatproduction at an great Event in northern Germany, Rapgewühl.

My Topics will be Workflows, Sampling Techniques, History and Production Issues from a more “oldschool” Perspective. Furthermore i will deal with the challenge of how to apply these techniques to todays productionenvironments.

As excited as i was about this event i even took time to produce a “retroesque” In
strumental in true 90´s Fashion which i will present in the Workshop, Scuffle Jam. A Second Example will be an Bambaata/Flash soundalike i created some Monts ago for a French Publisher.


I am more than happy to have the talented Producer Dennis Schnichels (SideStepSounds) on my side to show off his impressive skills on the NI Maschine.

Bring your Breaks and well´get down !

Plastic Age

When i was asked to be part of this project i immediately felt that it´s going the be a special one.

After meeting the very talented visual-artist Oleg Fatkullin it instantly showed the we shared an aesthetic vision and i really liked his sketches for his project Plastic Age.

The Main purpose of his work was to show off his abilities beyond the average needs for commercial projects, furthermore i came two the idea to offer the whole thing to Plasnoa young business enterprise making europes first online store only with products that don´t use any plastic at all.

Too see the result, see the video section.



Gamesoundcon 2014

Thanks to the nice people at Scorbit i had the opportunity the attend this years GSC at Millenium Biltmore, Los Angeles. Lucky as i was, i won a ticket in their sound-design competition.

What was more than a pleasant surprise at first, turned out to be an overwhelming inspiration.

Not just that there where amazingly entertaining speakers, such as Dave Swenson who gave insight in his works on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Certain lectures, such as the one given Dr. Perry Cook on Real-time Physics-based Sound Synthesis just blew my mind and everybody else’s. Especially coming from an academic background of multi-media composition i was not expecting to hear a speech on physical-modeling algorithms and filter models in the context games, my appreciation for his scientific efforts could´t be any higher.

Besides numerous excellent workshops i participated in the FMOD sessions with Stephan Schütze, who really got the listeners attention by his impressive enthusiastic approach and innovative thinking.

Brian Schmidt gave some great Speeches and presented himself as an excellent host of the event, but what made the event really special was the interesting mixture of people attending. I was able to make some great contacts, meet a lot of talented and friendly who i hope to see again very soon.

California, i will be coming back !
