music

  • 19. April 2020

I record an perform solo as well as in collaboration with other artists and projects. Generally I prefer improvisational approaches to fixed structure most of the time but not always. I have never been a purist and I’m pretty sure that I won’t become one. For my own musical projects I rather play and record than produce or change things afterwards. Mostly.

solo

Here are some of my solo recordings and performances. Most of them can be downloaded from my netlabel page in the internet (archive.org)

livestream for 3rd anniversary of EXPERIMENTIK

I’m a regular visitor and occasional performer on Seiji Morimoto’s EXPERIMENTIK in TIK Nord in Berlin on every third Wednesday. This performance was streamed live from there without audience due to the actual restrictions.

collaborations

I play and played in a couple of sort of regular bands as well as spontaneous, ad hoc or one of collaborations. Here’s a little selection:

.alter

.alter is a theme based improvisional duo with Matthias Koch on drums and me on bass and pedals. We’ll publish an album in the near future.

Here is our actual press text:

.alter is a Berlin based collaboration aiming to propagate sports music as an olympic discipline all over the world. They think themselves a perfect support act for nearly everything, from long distance philosophizing to other demanding exercises like mind reading, lovemaking, cooking or competitive dining.

They might have started the now so popular sports music genre accidentally, taking the glam out of rock and gluing some mojo onto pop thus enjoying both kinds.

Mr. Koch and Mr. sender are always looking for nice clean spots to drip their sweat on and neatly wipe it off afterwards, giving the world a pretty nice shine whilst sporting a pretend intellectual approach and outlook.

Sports high!
