A first vocal-centric track “Grüner Frosch, schwarzer Mops”

Well not exactly vocal-centric as in “with lead vocals” – but there’s a five-voice vocal section which even Richard Strauß might be proud of. Further components include cello and glockenspiel, and then there might be some synth, and either a harmonica or a melodica?

Still not a proper title for this track – but at least, there’s now a properly performed sax part in it.

“Aqua Negra” – from the Eclectic Blah archives

This track is 7.5 years old, is an edit of the coda of a 12-minute-track, and brings back nice memories of Eclectic Blah and Salon Erna. The highlight for me here is the drumming – read on for details!

Another track idea – which came from the #twitterchords project.

New Track: “Sid’s Impeccable Design”

A new track, honoring the memory of Eighties’ lofi digital synths, mainly the name-giving MOS Technology 6581 Sound Interface Device.

“Microambient”: Music is what happens…

…when you’re busy making other plans. Read how a short, nice, ambient track came to be rather accidentally.

Let’s look at some numbers, shall we?
