Ideas to give away #01

I mean, you could... it would be fantastic if someone... I want to know what happens if...

At some point I started writing everything down. Like everything everything... That's a great way to keep a clear head. To work well it requires to sort all these ideas, inspirations and tasks. It helps you think more freely and to be creative because you have less subconscious ballast.


And that's why there's a list on my computer called "Someday/Maybe".

It now has over 250 entries...

And since reduction makes you happy and giving away makes you happy, I start with both...


If there is an idea for you, take it, put it into your context, transform it, use it as an opportunity to develop new ideas...

And I would be happy if you let me know to see what happened ;-)



#01 Organic Visual Arts: You can drip ink in water and film that and it looks great.


What would happen if you projected on clear water in a dark room and added a drop of milk?

#02 Perform "I Am Sitting In A Room" live in the forest

In this concept composition, a spoken sentence is recorded and replayed and directly recorded and replayed and re-recorded and...

Through this the resonances of the space are amplified more and more

I would be interested to hear how different natural spaces sound when you explore them like this. Forests with their beautiful echo and a wonderful mixture of vastness and cosiness are especially suitable. What does a monoculture sound like? What does a jungle sound like?

#03 Putting A Megaphone-Driver to a Tuba

For this track I built a feedback loop into the tuba. A very small loudspeaker can bring sounds into the mouthpipe, I attached a microphone to the bell.

The whole thing runs into a feedback loop: the sound I put into the instrument is played back directly and amplifies its resonances.


I can manipulate the frequency of the resonance with my hands above the bell. This is how the melody is created at the beginning of the track...

The signal is very quiet and limited by the small diameter of the mouthpipe... So for this piece decided to sample the sound an play it back in different speeds and colours.

I wonder what you could do with a pressure chamber loudspeaker that can also produce low frequencies loudly.

Have fun and feel free to tell me if you like the ideas :)
