Schmiede



In September, Jos asked me to come along to the Schmiede in Hallein, Austria. The whole event was an extraordinary experience and would be enough for something like 5 Posts here, but as usually, I was waaay too busy to post anything. It always makes me wonder how the hell people manage to have their documentation up 5 minutes after they've done something, but since all the creativity lifestyle guides on The Internet constantly advise me to not compare myself with others, I will stop pondering on the issue now.

Thing is: I played a gig there which was an awful lot of fun. Later people told me it was a bit too loud, but the place had the weirdest acoustics and there was no technician to take care of the sound, blablabla, whatever.
Fortunately, Jos and Anselm agreed to film the whole gig, and even more important, edit the footage afterwards.

Jos made a short clip of one of the 'songs', which I decided to call Borkage:


Anselm edited the whole thing into a 55 minute concert film:


I love how both managed to decently capture the intensity and randomness of what is der Warst.

Uh, Yeah, great stuff guys. Thanks a lot.

Weehl



I've done a few recordings recently. This one is my favourite so far. The new sound is slowly coming into shape. I can't wait to properly test this stuff live!

This is probably the last thing I will have uploaded to Soundcloud before I'm gonna have to think about a different platform.

Autumnblips.



I have posted it elsewhere on christmas, but I completely forgot to post it here. Oh well, happy chinese new year then...

Here is the recording of my gig at autumnblips at Panke in Berlin.
A few months after this gig, the memory battery of one of my gameboy cartridges died, thereby erasing two years worth of songs. The idiot that I am also hasn't really taken care of backing up anything since then. Some of those songs I have not even recorded. I will never be able to play, let alone hear them anymore. No one will. They will be fading ghosts in the back of my brain that will haunt me whenever I get reminded of a particular melody or a beat or whatever...

Everytime I touch my Gameboy now, or actually any portable gaming device, it burns LIKE HELL!!!!. I will have to learn to love it again, but right now the disappointment is overpowering.

This was the last real 'official' recording from this particular cart. It feels very important to me, because it kind of sums up what I've been doing in those two years. And it shows me that it's time for a change in program. The Gameboy has dominated my set for quite a while now and in a way, I have started to let myself be limited through that.

So, a few days ago, I built a new Lab, And from here on, I think my sound will be a bit different again. Looking forward to a new challenge.
