these pages are about my new album bravo, which just has been released on the netlabel tonAtom.net.
During the last 7 years I played around with the guys from ne:o mostly and we released three nice records together. But along the way I did music just for others and me, too. And these works now appear on my first solo-album.
I did most of these songs, especially the remixes, in the last 3 years. The idea to put them on an album came six month ago.
mondeo is my newest remix and I was very busy with it last winter. I made it for the fantastic Keyboard Rebel from Manchester who were on a little tour through Germany together with ne:o in November 2009.
morning crisis is the oldest song in this collection. I mixed it in 2008 for my friends from Milesmilesmile [Dresden] who had their 10th anniversary that year.
bells & lids was previously released in 2009. It came out on a compilation with conceptual backround at tonatom.net. A bunch of musicians were told to produce songs exclusively from a special sample pool, without altering the samples beyond recognition using effects. [tonAtom.103]
stacy is a homage to our first computer we [ne:o] used to make music. Atari's stacy laptop. The song of the same name was built with this machine. Over a long period of time only one session-tape-recording of this track existed, which then I used as a foundation to rebuild the song.
riot is my first protest song.
supergroove is a so-called session-song, created in only 5 weeks. Via internet I asked people to participate in a virtual jam-session, to play to a basic loop and to send me ideas. Actually i hoped to have many more participants than 2, but in the end i am perfectly happy having Mike Bray [Keyboard Rebel] singing and playing the piano and having the mysterious Mari Aura singing her lovely o-e-o on this track.
ichabs reprise is an interpretation of the ne:o-song ichabs.
Have fun listening
