Our new record “YES WE DOES” is out!!! 5/8erl in Ehr´n – Soul from Vienna
Enjoy our new video “Alaba – How do you do?” Here it is:
I´ve co-written this song, along with several other tracks from our new album. You can buy and order it here. It´s been a pleasure making music with this band for 8 years now. We played two CD-Release concerts at brut in Vienna on October 8th and 9th. The location was sold out on both evenings and it was a very touching experience for us.
Here´s a picture taken by Rania Moslam:
The CD looks like this:
And this is my schedule for the next months:
Playing basketball is my second life, and when I´m not touring, rehearsing or composing, I spend my free hours with our newly founded team Vienna Basketwolves. We participate in Vienna´s Mixed Basketball League and it´s a lot of fun training and playing games with these nice people:
That would be it for now. All the best! Bye!
What we do in life echoes in eternity. Here you are. What I do some time soon:
Watch again – 5/8erl in Ehr´n special performance at Amadeus Austrian Music Awards 2014 at Volkstheater Wien. I wrote the arrangement for this special ensemble with drums, string quartet and choir – “Stö jetzt kane Fragn” is the name of the song. Enjoy:
Here´s what we looked ike on the magenta carpet with our borrowed tuxedos:

So, this is a very special production for me. For the first time in my career, a record featuring only my compositions is being released. I have to thank the wonderful Jazzorchester Vorarlberg for giving me that chance and putting so much work in performing and recording my music.
I´m really satisfied with the musical performance and mix and master of the CD and would love to get some feedback from you. Please listen, there are over 2 years of work in that recording, from composition process to scoring and arranging, rehearsals, concerts, recording, mixing, editing, graphic design,…
CD RELEASE concerts will be April 21 at Theater Kosmos, Bregenz and April 22 at Porgy&Bess, Vienna.

We, JazzWerkstatt Wien, organized a little flash-mob in front of the Austrian parliament. We played 18.000.000.000 notes in 10 minutes to protest against opacity. This is a little documentary by “Rosa Atom”. Enjoy!
Das haben wir mit 5/8erl in Ehr´n im Wohnzimmer aufgenommen….zum Akandemikerball 2014, hier mehr Info wer sich nicht auskennt:
As 2013 is coming to an end, I finally enjoy some time at home in Vienna to do some studio and composing work again. The last two months were incredibely intensive and I toured a lot in Austria and Germany.
But now all my attention belongs to the “MORPHING” project I am doing with the fantastical Jazzorchester Vorarlberg. As I mentioned here before, I wrote 90 minutes of electroacoustival music for big band and live electronics. The program was premiered in 2012 and we subsequently played some shows. This summer we began recording the music and we had our last recording session in October. Right now I´m editing the audio material and adding electronics. In January I´m going to mix the files with my longtime fellow Werner Angerer and the album will be released in April. Although it´s still a long way to go, I´m already very happy with the recordings and the material I´ve got from the great musicians. Here´s the band, photoraphed by Rania Moslam:
Believe it or not – this will be the first album release featuring only my music and I´m really excited about finishing this record!
Another record I was working on in the last year was finally released: Valérie Sajdik´s “Les Nuits Blanches”. And here it is:
It´s been released on CD, Vinyl and Digital – listen on iTunes and buy/ order it at Valerie´s office: firstname.lastname@example.org , + 43 1 440 56 71
