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

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.

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
