This is where the fun starts
As promised here is the first song of the wonderful "Beyond Tellerrand 2014" conference. This time I didn't plan on remixing the talks into music. But master doodler Jon Burgerman personally asked me for a take on his talk promising me to "sanction it". I was only familiar with that term in connection with South Africa in the 80's. "No, no, he said, I mean I will promote it." I didn't have much of a choice after that. So there you go:
The Only Way To Test A Theory
The Boy is back in town
It's been a while. A year to be exact. Again I had the honor to be a part of the excellent "Beyond Tellerrand" conference. It was a sold out show, woo hoo. Due to his busy schedule my partner Fred applied for a leave of absence which I graciously granted. Yes, I'm such a nice guy. This means this time I did it all by myself.
Thank you for all the great compliments during the two days. Jon Burgerman kept asking: who is that strange guy with the computer and headphones by the side of the stage. Someone finally resolved the confusion: he is sampling the speakers and turns it into a live mix. So Jon walked up to me and kindly asked for a remix of his talk, promising to spread the word via his various world wide accounts and thus guaranteeing fame and fortune. How could I resist.
So that's what I'm working on right now. And to quote Mr Burgerman himself :
the only way to test a theory, is to do it!
2 songs / 7 days
Excitement! We've just finished our album "Beyond Tellerrand". Now we are ready to launch. Over the course of a week we'll be putting two songs per day on the web via soundcloud. After that we'll make the whole album available as a download.
2 songs / 7 days -> Let's go!

Almost Ready To Roll
We are working feverishly on our first album. We had the pleasure of being a part of the "Beyond Tellerrand" conference, sampling the speakers and coming up with ad hoc compositions. It's these tracks that we are finetuning right now. We are very excited.
While the lyrical starting points are subjects like web, design and coding, the songs have turned into far more. Now we are talking about life, the universe and our dreams. It's interesting how words have their own way when they are mixed with music.
Check out the the recap video of the conference with music from the upcoming second album (that's right):
