With the great help of Tom Plate, who created the amazing cardboard set and also shot the whole thing - which was done as a one shot - and with the additional help of Gili Reichenthal, Jessica Dürwald, Johanna Landscheidt, Marc Seestaedt, Maria Jamborsky, Miriam Knobbe and last but not least Sarah Kretchmer - all of them dancing shaking and waving cardboard all over that screen.
And Andrea Roberts contributing with a very special piece of costume, which will be seen, when the video will be released in the end of January 2015.
Happy New Year!

The song 'Canary Bird'
April 4, 2017
After having played a lovely short tour with the boys and girl from Huck Blues, early this year and other shows with Black River Delta, Sam Densmore and the beloved Die Outlanders, featuring my best drummer man Gilad Reichenthal, I started working and rehearsing with Francesca Santangelo. I am happy to be developing arrangements and play joyous improvisations with this Italian drum maestress. She is working real magic on the Marimba as well as the kit and basically anything that creates a sound when you hit it. We gonna take all the time we need and want until we will present you a live programm.
Apart form that I have had the pleasure to create a poetry film with film maker Andrea Rüthel. Our experimental short will be screened on the 29 Filmfest Dresden on the 6th and 8th of April. Check out other upcoming events and I hope to see you, there!
Lots has been happening.. a short overview: the collaboration with Francesca Santangelo repeating, new songs are on the way to be recorded, also German ones, whoohoo! Our short movie "WIE" (collaboration with Andrea Rüthel) continues to travel through the galleries of the world, next hitting Chicago to be screened at the body + camera festival 2018 and Jersey City and Miami for Mana Contemporary. There has been a 2-channel sound installation done and shown in the exhibition "Page/ Figure" at KUB gallery Leipzig, carrying the title "I, Fuga", dealing with the narration of the self, repetition and reflection. Not only having been busy with sound and video art projects, there have been shows in Russia, again, revisiting the good memories, friends and musicians over there. For promotional purposes, this video was taken, where I do my best to quirk out a proper Russian sentence:
Happy welcome to the news...
In other news, there will be a show with Lord Youth in Leipzig, including a couple of our songs played in collaboration at a secret venue, hidden behind graffities and glass. Message, if you want to know the adress! Concluding with our promo pic for the event (portrait of me taken by Noam Rosenthal), many cheers.
