andrra: live footage from alex tv

2015 May

In april 2015 i joined Fatime Kosumi aka ANDRRA for a live one take video shoot in an empty club in berlin. A sunday morning with some dark electronic beats: we performed a rework of our single TEMENA for alex tv. you can watch it here. You might want to use headphones or proper speakers.

And here, once again, is the studio version. Even a bit heavier and darker. I produced this in december 2014.

music video premiere

2015 March

I am proud to present my first music video! I Felt Weird is now ready for you to stream below.

Maximilian Haslauer and Jonas Zieher created a mesmerizing handcrafted video for my track I Felt Weird from The Longest Year In History. While experimenting with moiré effects, Maximilian Haslauer and Jonas Zieher quickly discovered parallels with my musical work. Defined by Wikipedia as a “visually evident superimposed pattern created, for example, when two identical patterns on a flat or curved surface are overlaid while displaced or rotated a small amount from one another. (…) Moiré patterns are often an undesired artifact of images produced by various digital imaging and computer graphics techniques.” By manually moving printed patterns on transparent films the two designers consciously exploit this accidental effect. The footage was then edited digitally, retaining its organic feel to match the track’s sound. The result is a flickering audiovisual experience. Based in Stuttgart, South Germany, Maximilian Haslauer and Jonas Zieher study communcation design at the State Academy of Art and Design with a focus on image-making and illustration.

single production for andrra

2015 February

In winter 2014/15 i produced a nice deep track for the lovely voice of ANDRRA aka fatime kosumi. Her melody and lyrics are based on a piece of traditional albanian folk song about unwillingly being married to someone you don’t love. Together we turned this song into something dark and contemporary. You can stream it here.

The spaces we enter define the speed of our lives. The Longest Year In History maps out all of these spaces. Our apartments and the windows we look through, looking at clocked day-to-day routines. The club, where existence is eternal, in synchronized infinity.The trains we ride, letting go of the routine while we are being moved, indulging in a shift of time and space… Matthias Grübel provides the soundtrack for our twisted sense of time and movement. He plays Sehnsuchtstechno for the calendar inside your heart.
