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.

ORIGIN is coming

ORIGIN is coming

Markus Adams new Album August 31st

Hi folks, recovery is going well and so is the next album. After some mixing and mastering problems as well as some problems convincing @routenote about the origin of the vocal samples, the release is now finally on its way to all major streaming sites.

The title of the album will be ORIGIN. I will tell you the origin story (no pun intended) in a later post.

If you want to have a sneak peek into the sound follow me on my social media. I already posted some snippets and will do so in the coming days.

Simply go to my link.tree for a shortcut to all my social media.

Cover artwork at last

The cover art was quite a challenge too. When it comes to making the final decision, I’m quite a lazy procrastinator. Even the final idea went through multiple iterations and took about 4 months to come to fruition.

Two similar ideas were shelved after the first month. Somehow they didn’t seem to fit my idea of developing something to remember.

If you want to have a listen to the sound of ORIGIN, just follow me on my social media. I already posted some snippets here and there, as well as some video stuff. I will do so in the days to come. Be sure to follow me on Spotify to get me on your Release Radar.

Thanks for caring, Markus.

You can’t miss these great remixes from…

The deadline has passed. Another milestone  in my humble career as a DIY musician is approaching the finish line. I reviewed all of the submitted remixes and have picked Andy as the Grand Prize Winner receiving Neutron (Standard) by Izotope and ROLI’s Equator. Congratulations!

The runner-ups are Millennium Mike and Chiapexx who will also be featured on the upcoming release. Thanks to everyone who collaborated with me, Check out their fresh remixes below:

The first prize goes to the first one to enter the remix competition. Just a coincidence? Not really. Andy is a real contender for the win every time. I liked how he took the themes and meshed them up just the right way. Thanks, Bro. Be sure to follow him on social. Links are found in his blend account.

Though I felt Andy’s was the most innovative of the remixes, they were all really great. So Enjoy them all. Thanks to both of you for putting in the time and creativity. Very much appreciated. Be sure to follow them on social as well. (see blend account for details.)
