My Patric Catani for Pit People Soundtrack contribution for The Behemoth surely was the most extensive and complete video game collaboration I did so far. For almost a year, I played around and gathered musical influences that would underline their countless crazy characters fighting in a world that struggles with time and space confusion, caused by the green blood rain of a giant teddy bear.

Needless to mention that the given scenario offered me a huge playground, experimenting freely with combining all possible and impossible genre crossovers. It happened that banjos meet kossack choirs and italo disco grooves fusioned with baroque english horns, western elements mashing up with electronic monster funk and rockabilly pirate chants collide with trap music beats, fairy voices and scatting swing choirs sing along with hardcore techno hoovers.

Hundreds of thousands of plays and excited comments from Pit People fans around the globe showed that I was on the right track to underline the spirit of the game.

When I had an opportunity to play my game soundtracks at PaxEast Boston in 2018 and several other game music related occasions, the question for me was if I shall “only” play the original songs, or if it might make sense to stir things up once more to make the concert material more stringent and have danceable versions that could rock bigger dancefloors. I decided for option 2 and it was a truly exciting journey to explore the reign of madness again, mashing up the Pit People and BattleBlock Theater material into one big concert.

Whilst on this release you obviously find the results of all the Pit People rework, I will also put out my BattleBlock Theater remix release and a live recording of the whole concert in the near future.

Thank you all very much for your support!

Special Thanks to Maximum Guitar (Youtube.com/user/maximumguitar) for his great collaboration cover version of Goblinbling!! Make sure you check his Youtube channel!

Performance at Museo del Synth Marchigiano | Macerata

I play a performance at the Vintage Synthesizer museum in Macerata / Italy on the 25th of october 2018. I will bring my own Siel Synthesizer, but will have access to some of the legendary vintage string machines and synthesizers that were produced in the area of Macerata and Civitanova. The festival happens from Oct 19th until Nov. 4th and looks packed with super interesting shows.

check the link – here –

 

Infotext (Italian only)

Museo del Synth Marchigiano e italiano è un’iniziativa unica nel suo genere, che nasce per valorizzare e diffondere la conoscenza di un’importante settore della nostra economia e cultura industriale. 

Saranno esposti più di 100 strumenti vintage: sintetizzatori, tastiere, organi e batterie elettroniche di tutti i più rilevanti marchi italiani (che erano al 90 per cento dislocati nelle Marche) per la prima volta tutti assieme. 

Strumenti che hanno contribuito a fare la storia della musica, elettronica e non, ed alcune rarità assolute. Il “museo” non si rivolge solo al passato, infatti è anche l’occasione per una ricognizione sulle produzioni attuali con la partecipazione di gran parte delle aziende attualmente attive sul territorio regionale e di quelle nazionali che fanno riferimento al distretto marchigiano, attivo anche nel fornire servizi e competenze ad ampio raggio. 

Le due settimane di svolgimento si articolano in concerti, seminari, incontri, tavole rotonde che hanno lo scopo di promuovere la conoscenza della storia e delle realtà attualmente vive ed operanti.

DAS IST AUCH UNSERE BAUSTELLE | HUMBOLDT FORUM

Ich habe musikalisch und als Mixing Engineer mitgewirkt bei dem Projekt Werkstattrundgang von Petra Larass, Barbara Falkner und Jadranka Kursar.
Zu sehen und zu hören vom 14. Oktober bis 16. Dezember.

Hier der offizielle Infotext des Humboldt Forums:
In acht Modulen ermöglichen Installationen aus Film, Sound, Performance, Bildhauerkunst und Collagen sowie Objekte aus den Bereichen Architektur und Alltag eine spielerische Erforschung der wechselvollen Geschichte des Ortes und eine interaktive Beschäftigung mit dem Humboldt Forum. So können Besucherinnen und Besucher in einer modernen Kunstkammer eigene Vorstellungen von Sammlungen umsetzen, in einer Zeitmaschine die Geschichte des Ortes erkunden, in einem eigenen Forum den Begriff Freiraum definieren, durch Tanz und Bewegung das Gebäude des Berliner Stadtschlosses bzw. des Palastes der Republik animieren oder mit Bild und Ton in eine Baustellensymphonie eintauchen. Zudem laden lebensgroße Adler aus Gips, Silikon und Sandstein zum Ertasten und zum Kennenlernen von handwerklichen Prozessen ein, Klanginstallationen und grossformatige Filmdokumentationen lassen Klangräume erleben.

Die in den Themenräumen präsentierten, sehr individuellen Aussagen und Herangehensweisen der Projektbeteiligten werden in der Ausstellung durch Kurztexte zahlreicher Autorinnen und Autoren ergänzt. Mit den persönlichen Einblicken der Kinder und den Statements von Intendanten, Architekten, Ausstellungsmachern und vielen anderen Experten bietet die Ausstellung eine Gesamterzählung aus unterschiedlichen und überraschenden Perspektiven.

The Thing at Biennale Karachi / Pakistan

Honored to be part of the Biennale Karachi / Pakistan.
My third collaboration with the artist duo Bankleer lead me to do Scifi Music with the musicians Shahid Ali Palna, Yousaf Bashir Khan and Zulfiqar Ali for an art performance dealing about a fallen Meteorite (The Thing / Das Ding). Very happy about the results and I will for sure release the songs at some point. Many thanks to Goethe-Institut Pakistan and Karachi Biennale Trust for supporting the idea.

Der TV Beitrag wurde zum Erscheinen des neuen Playstation-Spiels “Wipeout Omega Collection” produziert und es wurden nur zwei Sätze von mir benutzt, jedoch findet ihr hier ein etwas ausführlicheres Textinterview:
