Back in Vienna, I immediately started working again. We rehearsed with JazzWerkstatt Wien New Ensemble, then played a Session Opener at Blue Tomato, before we went to Bern, Switzerland. We played at JazzWerkstatt Bern, a very nice festival and musicians collective and got very good reviews for our “show”.

Have a look at my Dates page. Many gigs coming up in spring!
Another little project I was working on was “A Tusky Tale”. My fellow student at DUK “Music for Film & Media” Simon Osterhold asked me to help him composing music for a short animation movie. It was supposed to be a “chamber orchestra – ballroom style” soundtrack. Simon started out composing the head theme and I did the sorrowful middle part till the end. It was fun working together and although we didn´t have budget to record real musicians (we programmed everything) it came out really nice and sweet. Here´s the film:
So far, so good. Ciao!
