Like a Rolling Stone

The “MORPHING” project was a great experience for me and I think it worked out pretty fine. I´m looking forward to presenting the program in Vienna next year 2013.
THIS you have to see:

The music is performed by JazzWerkstatt Wien New Ensemble and young digital animation artist Nikolai Maderthoner made this film by himself over the last year. I think it´s an incredible work. This man is 19 years old and designed everything in this music video. Please share!

The nee. EP “The Truth is on Fire” can be ordered now. Get your physical copy here:

I´m very much looking forward to a Jam Session taking place at legendary club Blue Tomato on December 4th. I´ll play the opening set with great musicians Judith Ferstl, Herbert Pirker and Sixtus Preiss. With us will be physician Stefan Nimmrichter from the Quantum Nanophysics Group. We´ll mix improvised groove music with a lecture about quantum physics. That´s what I like! Come join the jam!

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:
