NEXT LIVE PERFORMANCE AT “WINNIE’S SCHWINGUNGENPARTY”

On June 30st 2012 I will be performing at “Winnie’s Schwingungen Party” in Hamm, Germany. It’s a gardenparty organized by Electronic Circus and I’m sure it will be great fun, as usual. I have been visiting the parties over the last two years, on which the last time more than 100 visitors showed up. It’s one of the best EM events around.

I’ll be the opening act of the event, which means I will be starting my performance at 14:00 in the afternoon. So be there in time if you’d like to see me performing.

To order tickets, please send an email to party(at)electronic-circus.net . You will be informed about the address and how to reserve your ticket. Don’t worry about the cost, as it will be more than worth for the great food and entertainment you’ll enjoy in return. 🙂

THE PLANETARIUM CONCERT “THE EVENT HORIZON” AFTERMATH

My performance at the Zeiss Planetarium in Bochum last Saturday was a great success. I had great fun performing, and the full dome projections were fantastic. Thank you all for being there.

Special thanks go to Klaus-Dieter Unger for the stunning projections and the wonderful support during the day. Big thanks to my friends Zhen and Jan-Cees. Without you this whole event would not have been possible. And a warm thank you to Sylvia and Klaus Sommerfeld of Schallwende e.V. Thank you for inviting me to perform at the planetarium. It’s so far the best experience I had in my life.

Photos of the event can be seen here at the Schallwende website.

NEW VIDEO:”TIMESCAPES”

Please check out the new official video for the track “Timescapes”. “Timescapes” (‘Singularities’, Groove Unlimited) is inspired by just looking outside of a moving train and watching landscapes passing by. I figured that it wasn’t the landscapes that I was looking at, it was the movement of time.

I get this similar idea when looking at images through a Viewmaster viewer. Those amazing 3D pictures are beautiful timescapes in which you can easily imagine yourself wandering about.
