NYC Nights – Cruising Through The Night – Full video released on Youtube

Dear friends, Hi folks,

the final full video for NYC Nights has been released on Youtube. This one was the frist graphic video I did. The idea was to create a NYC City scene and move it slowly to the scene shown in the full album cover. I feel it turned out to be quite nice. I did it all with quite simple tools. Using Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements as well as the free tool  Inkscape.

The whole idea of creating a graphic video and  slowly creating a cover scene for the new album took quite some time. Decisions are never easy and I hope you like the outcome as well as the underlying tune. Cruising Through The Night was the first track I created for the album and set the tone for one half of the more jazz rock inspired tunes.

I am currently working on more video ideas, probably based on the photos on videos from our trip to NY. Looking forward to your opinions. Post them here or  on my social media.Thanks for listening and viewing anyway.

Markus

NYC Nights – New Album Out Now on Bandcamp

Today I released my next full album on bandcamp. It is a concept album describing the emotions and impressions I had when visiting New York City in October 2017. This is a pre-release. The full release on all major streaming sites will follow in the next days.

The story of NYC Nights

In September 2017 we got the wicked idea of why not spend a second holiday this year in New York. We had wanted to go several times in the last 10 years, but never had gone. We decided and booked on a whim and sure enough in October we found ourselves in the big apple. I recently had bought a cheap field recorder just to try it out and what an opportunity it was.

New York isn’t just a city of light but of constant sound. You cannot escape it. From sirens to jackhammers to buzzing people. The ever humming sounds just engulf you and finally inspire the musician in you. I had to do something with it. So the raw idea was born. I first thought of using most of the sounds rhythmically i.e. for making beats and but the project soon took on a life of its own. Sometimes the tracks developed out of the sound i.e. the Jackhammer wake-up service, sometimes an idea was complimented by certain sounds i.e. street sounds and accelerating cars or just the idea survived and a track came from nowhere. It certainly is funny the way inspiration works …

And so is life. In January the project stopped as I got stopped by my internal beat Maschine loosing its rhythm. (heart attack) This, in a way, at the same time stalled and sped up the project as I am currently forced to stay at home, which gave me plenty of time to finish the album. As is my fashion it spans from Rock to Jazz to Electronica. Some classical ideas and EDM are in there too. If I can find one listener who enjoys the whole album as I did I’d be very lucky. The mood of the album feels a bit melancholic at times, so I wanted it to end on a fun track. The track title is an in joke only my family and our friends in New York will understand(, or any parent with young children high on sugar.)

So as always Listen, enjoy, tell your friends and foes about it.

Love, Markus

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

Stonehenge

Back from vacation – #NWMEDTEMR finally available on all channels

Back from a great, refreshing and inspiring vacation in South England. Went to see some great ancient sites like Stonehenge and Tintagel. The weather was spectacular. The hotels were let me say “british”, especially the meals, but you can live with that when you wake up to a seaside view as refreshing as the one from The Queens Hotel 

After a week of making no music at all I will return to the keyboard and hope to use that great inspiration for some new tunes.

During the vacation my new album #NWMEDTEMR = No Wise Man Ever Dared To Enter My Realm was finally made available on all channels. You can stream it on Spotify or  here

And if you want to buy it go to my shop or to your favorite download portal.

Google Play Itunes Amazon Music

Have fun.
