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.

MORPHING – phase 1

I´m totally into composing music for Austria´s ensemble “Jazzorchester Vorarlberg“. The programme I came up with is called “MORPHING” – it features my work as a composer, Mieze Medusa performs Poetry-Slam, Andreas Harrer is showing short films and of course the wonderful musicians of the ensemble striking up:

The premiere will take place in Bludenz on November 8, followed by a gig at “Altes Kino Landeck” the next day. I´ll come up with more information and a video trailer soon. Last night I finished one tune for the programme “Les Salces”, which is also my first experiment with graphic notation. The orchestra will play along with Ableton Live, so they have to follow my arrangement. I printed out all the waveforms and wrote the music next to them… I think it´ll work out fine, but I´m very curious how the musicians will manage that task. Here´s the score:

Bye!

Undercover of the Night

In May, the “JazzWerkstatt Wien New Ensemble” premiered it´s new programme “…plays Max Nagl”. Filmmaker Martin Schiske filmed the concert and produced this little promo video for us. I hope you enjoy! The composer is Max Nagl and we arranged his music with our electroacoustical ensemble sound – using live-electronics, sound spatialisation, electronic devices, special micings…
See and hear what we did and how we sound like!
