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.

New album “No Wise Man Ever Dared” will be released worldwide on august 7, 2017

This is a promotional teaser video for upcoming album release on august 7, 2017 : NO WISE MAN EVER DARED … TO ENTER MY REALM.

I’ve been working on this album for half a year now or if I am honest in parts this album’s origins lie in part in my musical upbringing as a child of the seventies and eighties and to the other part in my eclectic musical taste that rages from Oldfield to Jarre, from Prince to MJ, from Gershwin to Sheeran, from John Williams to the Chieftains … well you get the drift.

Some melodies date back about 25 years, while others e.g. the main 30 minute track originated this year (with some seasoning from older compositions of mine). Since I began to make music again 5 years ago I drifted to this album very slowly … my first release, the EP NOW on the blend.io label gave me the confidence that others might actually like the music I make … and if you do, stay tuned for august 7, … or get your taste on

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
