One morning I woke up to the sounds of a curfew. A thousand sirens bathed the streets in blue. I fixed up a shot of caffeine, which chased the bats from my head with bitterness alone. In last weeks jeans and shirt and got out into the street, slipping by the men in riot gear. My heart made a little leap when I saw you standing by the the old Volkswagen. We exchanged a hasty kiss, your lips tasting of lipstick, mine of yesterdays drink. Without looking back we crept out of the city, bypassing the roadblocks by sheer luck and your gallons of charm. In a flash we reached the seaside and left the car behind.

Here is a sketch from the video the lovely Orca is doing for my “Song of the Sea”. Can’t wait to see it in motion!
Something wicked this way comes.
What’s in my backpack? All of this!
Ciat-Lonbarde Sidrax Organ, now travelling with me.
Here is something I have been working on since spring, the score to the play “Königsdramen”, opening 3.10.2014 in Bonn, Germany. This is a little teaser featuring a snippet of me going mad on my grandfather’s violin.
I picked up this lovely Marantz PMD222 tape recorder and turned into a tape delay by putting it on the aux of my mixer and its output into an extra channel. This way I can eq the echo and create feedback, which can be tamed by the internal limiter. Of course, you are limited to two delay times, slow and normal, but still a rather nice and organic echo. Watch your speakers, it gets loud!
This Saturday, my dear wife Nikoletta will open her space “König Otto" at the Sudhaus of the KINDL in Neukölln for one night of debauchery and sound. Be there at 18H to witness the surprising installation in the Kesselhaus by Roman Signer and stay for the DJ set by Falco Teichmann. Even if you don’t like art or music, dance to stunning architecture in a cathedral of beer.
You know you have a good job when it requires you to have two circuit bent Early Learning Centers. Both bends by Bogus Noise, whom I can heartily reccommend.
The cover of my new record Collision / Contact. First time in ages I did the artwork myself, but I like how this turned out. I can get lost in it.
It got dark quicker than usual tonight. The moon is glowing faintly over the railway, illuminating the yellow chalk circles on the street that mark the early morning shoot-out. A “P” stands for pistol, “H1, H2, H3, H4, H5” for bullet casings. Very efficient yet almost childlike in the way it is scrawled on the pavement.
Today we dine at the gallery, its a birthday, or an opening night. We are not sure. “We’ve got flowers, but better bring some oscillators, you never know”, my wife said as she was putting on a touch of lipstick. I nodded and packed an echo, too.
Collisions / Contact was commisioned for an exhibition that never happenend. But there was a cake, so that’s allright.
