Melody template

During my sound design/music production apprenticeship we got a midi melody from our lecturer Michael Jakumeit and had to build a one minute song around it in half a day. This is my result, inspired by 80s pop like Nena.

Btw: It was mixed only on the headphones I’m using here. I didn’t go into the studio as well for this fun project.

Music video shooting

Christian Scheffer had a small music video production going and I was one of the main actors for this. I’m not really used to act in front of the camera, but it was an awesome experience and lots of fun. And yes, I had to shave my beard for it. The first time in 20 years I saw my complete face again, haha.

Thanks to opera singer Bettina Jensen, director Christian Scheffer and WAVE AKADEMIE. Also to Christoph Gehl and Svetlana Hofmann for the awesome camera work and to Niko Krรผger and Marc Sam for helping on set with light, equipment and just everything. I’m excited for the result.

“Produce Like A Pro” remix contest

Hi! This is my remix for the “Produce Like A Pro” contest for the song by “The Workday Release”. I used the vocal and acoustic guitar stems and built the rest around it. Let me know what you think. Enjoy listening. ๐Ÿ™‚

Take a look at the official group for the contest.

Additional info:
I made it in FL Studio. The main instruments are the American Grand Solo piano by Analog Lab 3, the Orchestral Suite by UVI, Autogun synth by Image-Line, TAL Elek7ro and samples. For mixing and mastering I used internal EQs, MLoudnessAnalyzer, Waves tools such as SSL Comp, J37 tape emulation, L3-LL and NLS channels for summing. Room effects are Waves IR-L reverb (IR of York Minster England/Church) and H-Delay (tape delay). I also used the CLA-76 and CLA-2A, such as the Kings Microphones on the vocals.

Rammstein – Deutschland

Last night I saw the video shortly after the premiere. I just watched it again. And I have to say, the power of sound and vision has given me wet eyes. Really. Apart from the fact that I look at the overall package also from production-technical perspectives, so for example the sound design at the beginning, I find a clear statement was set with a lot of (partly subtle) signs, with an artistic implementation, which I personally like very much.

I could write so much about it, but Read More

bilingual pages

Welcome world! I made my homepage bilingual now, English and German (see switch in the menu left). My English may not always be perfect because I’m not a native speaker. Please bear with me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m sure you will get every point I bestow on you. Enjoy exploring! ๐Ÿ™‚

Film shooting at Schloss Reichenow

I had a very cool image film shoot by Christian Scheffer including accommodation this week at Schloss Reichenow, a really exquisite location in a great environment with a nice team. Speaking of team: I would like to thank all involved for this cooperation. Among others, Peggy Wochatz, who will be the focal point in the finished film in addition to the location itself. Likewise Stefan Kochert (Director of Photography), James Dyar (light), Frank Schach (sponsor and initiator), Julia (assistant director) and Susi (mask and good soul on set).

Everyone was so motivated, professional and, above all, in a good mood, that I could not wish for anything better. This shoot was really fun and I’m glad to have met such great people again. Thanks also to my sound colleague Felix Hirte, with whom I represented the sound department. Once again a great cooperation.

When there are results, I will report it. Until then, stay curious!

Edit: Watch the final film HERE !
