New year, new music?

As you may know 2018 was a year of disasters for me. Not only was I hospitalised with having had a heart attack, I still suffer from cardiomyopathy. But I am recovering and almost back to form. But by far the worst thing happened in September when my music harddrive, yes the one with all my instruments and my music went down. Sure I was backing up most of the files,and the instruments could be restored. But what I didn’t know , was that the backup was corrupted too.

I set all my hopes in a professional recovery service, prepared to shell out some serious money to get it all back, but all my hopes failed. Yep. Almost all the production files of my tracks since 2013 are lost. Thank god, only two current, unreleased tracks were lost. The tracks up to 2016 are on an old PC I will copy some time in the future. Some are backed up on blend.io. And I’m currently downloading them. So, until December I was on a forced production hiatus, as I had only very basic tools to work with, and underwent some medical rehab treatment.

But once black Friday came the Itch was back. I replaced my Maschine MK1 with an MK3 and stocked up on some synth. You can never have enough plugins …

So I’m back to making music but for now searching a theme for the next album. I’m sure the spark will come soon and I’ll be back on some late night sessions fiddling over some Bihar beat … Until then I wish all of you a very good start into 2019 and health for you and your hard drives.

PS: I am now backing up daily on a separate NAS harddrive and checking the backup integrity also daily.

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.
