On the 20th of october there will be a concert at the ‘Sasel Haus‘ for which I’m distributing some orchestrations. One part of the evening will be Igor Strawinskys „L’histoire du soldat – Die Geschichte des Soldaten“ together with the actors Victoria Trauttmansdorff and Wolf-Dietrich Sprenger.
For the other part, the visitors could choose their favorite classical works and I adapted them for Igor Strawinskys Septet-Line-Up. For more info, click here.
New Website – Welcome
I think it was in 2017 when we played at a little private event and I met Johannes Töws for the first time.
He was one of the guests and it turned out that he was an illustrator. I saw some of his works and fell in love with his drawings immediately.
I told him:’ Johannes, there will come a day when I’ll contact you and we’ll work together’.
Last year I decided to refresh my website.
The basic idea was to have much less unnecessary personal information.
The visitors should see nice paintings with lots of funny little details which conjure a smile on their faces.
Of course Johannes was the first choice for this ‘assignment’.
We decided to first brainstorm – each for his own – to find a common thread for the site.
When we talked some days later we both had the exact same idea.
We wanted to tell the history of music in 6 pictures – starting in a bygone era, ending in the mañana.
Johannes wanted to add 3 main figures (they don’t have names yet). These are the little blue, green and yellow chimeras which can be seen in each picture. They evaluate together with their instruments and environment.
Most people don’t have time nowadays. But if you do have, take some minutes and explore Johannes’ fantastic work of art please.
