Spiracles In My Head

I don’t know the numbers & statistics too well, but it started on january 6 & it ends today on march 6. If one sums up those days in between, you get more or less 60pages filled with spiracles out of my membrain. Pretty much straight from the [more]

‘It is not from space that I must seek my dignity, but from the government of my thought. I shall have no more if I possess worlds. By space the universe encompasses and swallows me up like an atom; by thought I comprehend the world.’ Blaise Pascal, Pensées [more]

2H Party People

People in nightlife tend to believe they have power over time so day and night time are irrelevant. There is only party time or no party time at all. Like a never-ending loop on a record, turning around & around, up & down, creating 45 monotonous revolutions per [more]

Running Men Stumbled

The richest people of our time – let’s say last year – made their money with computers, software, mobile phones, supermarkets, chemicals, textiles, real estate & investments in all kind of areas. I don’t know what that means but I also don’t see the difference between 1 billion [more]

Oy Oy Oy

start the track. push the sirens on your device so they can hear you scream – at least in the inside. They say money is in the air, so they send wired balloons into strato-spheres to make the world wireless. This is un-negotiable because nobody can and will [more]

So let’s keep the spirit alive. De-celerate & con-template for the time being. Celebrate tomorrow for it may never come. Reflected shadows of the past for yesterday’s new quintet has vanished into lounged horizons filled with too many impressionists. It’s time for true melancholy (sic!) & true detectives (sick!) to clean up [more]

Acid Test

I Have you ever heard of the Acid Test? “Also know as the ‘quick ratio’, this is the ratio of a COMPANY’S liquid ASSETS (like cash, bank balances, and easily salable SECURITIES) to its short-term debts, that is, the money it must repay other people in the not-too-distant future. [more]

Of Mine Worker & Mine Owners

You get up, do what you’re supposed to do, organise yourself & yourstuff. You get sleep, food or shelter, make love, music, work-out, clean up your bullshit & some other person’s dog shit. You check your social life by browsing & scrolling your humble fingers up & down, [more]

Sweet Day Dreaming

Have you ever dreamed the dreamers dream? I know a place close by, where dream and reality verge to each other like day and night time. It’s hard to differ but also pointless. Either you’re having lucid dreams or reality is like a dream itself. You can choose one [more]

Ministry Of Silly Talks

Have you ever paid to argue about any thing? Not the suffi kind of paying for receiving (I know, every good or bad thing has its price before hand). I’m talking dead presidents for an argument or two. Have you ever learned moves without behaviour? Or hanged yourself [more]

It seems like pure schizophrenia when I go into the desert for a week to visit my father (more about this later), make plans and play music and then show off such a stillleben filled with all this plastic & carbon before even leaving. One might think my head [more]

The Elderly & The Lost

Western society has this spleen with getting old or dying by negating the obvious eternal ending or transition of one’s self into a holistic entirety. Usually the most obvious approach is through clutching on adolescence like some rich girl at her gucci bag she got for her sweet [more]

The first coincidences I had with classical music where on sundays, connected to the smell of freshly baked plaited loaf (or just zopf). I was around 9 years old more or less and the strings and harmonies did not yet talk to me but subconsciously transmitting those unique [more]

It was already yesterday when I began this flaschenpost about all those bigger and smaller ideas and thoughts in my head. I tried die deutsche Ausdrucksform but could not finish my mental Autobahn express ride (either I was too ermürbt or too unbeholfen). Still, I love the german language for so [more]

The Boat Party

I remember very clearly how it felt not being able to decide whether to sit or lay down, smoke cigarettes or eat any thing, go outside or stay home in my dungeon. It wasn’t really the best time of my life. now it’s a different animal, different time [more]

IDM Wave w/ Max Bunt

IDM Wave stands for Italo Disco Minimal Wave. And it looks like this cover. but even more important sounds like those videos further down. Quality dance music as usually in Ladybar but this time only from a certain period of time. To be more precise: the 80ties (don’t [more]

Sixtythousand Times

time is of the essence but not a credit. it’s just here for you and me. and the big ones and the tiny ones, until we all get a different part in this übermächtigen uhrwerk being, where most parts are already designed by nature. and if it ain’t [more]

Don’t stop reading when you think I’m going into this whole realness thing again. Or Black & White. I’m just writing. Trying to find voicing words like decoding an unknown language, written on a role, hidden in a canvas(!) & understanding only by assembling without knowing what I’m actually construing. Damn, Saul.

Of Lovers & Leftovers

I commercialize my thoughts by expressing one after another. When I have commercialized myself hollisticaly into this infinite allness, the rest of my wrappings will be blown into the wild and open sea where we will all meet again in an area of vasted vastness, filled with glorified [more]

Drum Diaries

Recently I asked a drummer slash producer about the best jazz drummer there is, dead or alive. I can’t remember what he said but I still recall that most of the mentioned players were already gone. But still, some of them are alive: Take Chris Dave (used to be [more]

Remember the scene in Adam’s Apples, where Ivan Fjeldsted (Mads Mikkelsen) is asked by Adam (Ulrich Thomsen) about his son and how he’s holding up with it?

Riverside Shadow Boxing

Deeper Underground

What is undeground if the world goes down? A question that popped  up loomed inside my head two years ago. Don’t know whether it had to do with the Maya or the fact that everything related to electronic music became ‘deeper’, ‘darker’ and more ‘original’ or ‘straight forward’ than [more]

JZM & ASS

If there’s a divine jazz quintet somewhere up there in outer space, I imagine Sun Ra, Mrs. Coltrane, Mr. Monk, Mr. Gillespie and Mr. Byrd leading the rest of the players and welcome the other vibrating musicians arriving in soundscape new heavens. ‘It go Halle Berry or hallelujah‘ [more]

Impulsive Behavior

Let’s start with the beginning. The impulse that becomes an idea, the idea that turns into form, form that is filled with more of the named-above. 60 days of virtual insanity and the hope that it might get deleted for ever or at least vanish after a sixth [more]
