Project ONOMA started. Updates on my Instagram.

On the first of January I embarked on a new musical journey. I started project ONOMA.

The challenge: create an instrumental album with at least two tracks, 20 minutes each, for a release in mid-August. The title is the Greek word for name. Cheesy I know. But it has a very musical ring to me.

In August 2018 I made the opening theme, while just doodling on Machine, in 2 days, bounced it to Google drive to listen to it on my mobile. When I wanted to start working on it again the next day, my music hard drive crashed and I lost all of the midi files related to it and most of the midi for my backcatalogue. Just the bounced file and the tweaked Maschine beat survived. As I also lost access to my plugins, I couldn’t restart the work until I had built up my PC again.

I almost had forgotten about the track. In December I started to clean up my Google drive an rediscovered it, liked it and had the idea for the challenge. And so the new year’s resolution for this challenge was born.

By now I am well into creating the first track, the A-side. The style is eclectic as always. It definitely has vibes from Oldfield and Jarre. A little Markus is in there, too. Shifting from Rock to Folk to Pop to synthy Techno.

I started an production update series on my Instagram. Soon I will be uploading some sounds. Stay tuned for it.

But the project is not only a musical one. I also decided to streamline my visual appearance on social. I will focus on Instagram and started by trying to find a more coherent style for my posts. I hope you’ll like it.

This is all a evolutionary process. I hope the final product will find an audience.

Stay tuned, listen, enjoy, like.

A late but very Happy New Year to all of you who made it around the sun again.

Hi Folks,

another trip around the sun is over and the new journey of 365 days has begun again. And again we all have time to mess up our lives for the  940 million km (584 million mi) trip. Anyone asking: “Are we there yet, already?” Well, having traveled almost 46 billion km and intending to make it 100 I wish you all a very pleasant,eventful and fun trip. There are no meteors in sight, so the only ones to mess up the trip are we ourselves. So let us all work together in friendship, peace and love to see another silly ball drop again.

Best wishes to all the people of the world.

Markus

Merry Xmas everyone

Hi folks,

I just wanted to you all a quick update on the new EP and its shaping up very nicely. The tunes start to line up and it seems the EP might turn into kind of a concept album. Meanwhile I put up a new video, showcasing one of the themes… albeit not in this form This is just kind of a christmastune-like version for you to enjoy while buying your copy of my recent stuff, which by the way is still on sale if you buy the whole collection.

As always thanks for listening and have good time and a great start into next year

Album content still growing towards planned release in August

This track dates back about 25 years. Its origin lie in my first attempts to create something folksy, irish, celtic sounding. Had the midi for years and updated it once in a while with better sounding VSTs, made it more rhythmically coherent and tried to up the harmonic content by writing second and third voices for the strings

You can download the track already from my bandcamp shop
