Like I have told you guys, I had to undergo another upper spine-surgery on Friday 3rd of July after my stupid fall the week before.
I knew this would be much more challenging than the 1st surgery had been ... . Both implants had to be taken out and be substituted by metal cages, plates and bone-substitutes. My vertebral body had to be restored as well.
Update 10th of August 2020:
I still have problems talking/singing/swallowing/breathing ... will need another check-up on this next week. It definitely sucks!
To cope with all this and distract myself from the current shit-uation in a creative way, I work on my new album "Sounds from Somewhere" which I hope to complete before I have to go to Rehab. Therefore I am in the process of rearranging and remixing some of the latest compositions.
Like in the course of producing my last album ...:
You might not find some of my compositions in this blog anylonger ... Sorry for this, but don't worry ... be happy! I have chosen them to refresh/rearrange/remaster for the upcoming album!
So far, I am really excited ... just have completed a new version of the former "Antares-Soundscape" and it really rocks! Promised!
There will be some completely new stuff as well. I have finished the master of my new, nerdy composition "The Dying of Water" (= working title) with my own real water-recordings, Vocoder/Synths, (real) Kalimba/Sansula and lyrics in Kiswahili, the latter being another of my favourite languages ...
It would be great, if you guys could support my compositions and survival with a donation!
More than ever I do not know how to pay my upcoming bills, as due to Corona and my spine-surgeries I was/am not able to perform live-music, -poetry and -rituals nor give readings ... but I do have a lot of additional medical bills to deal with. Therefore I'd be grateful if you could support my album-production and survival!

Shamanic Experimental: The Forest of Golden Amber ... Shamanic Drumming/Vocals/Synth ...
Some guys keep on asking, what I did to and with my drums .... Hey, guys, they are still with me and yes, they do feel just a bit deserted ... The reason behind is, that I still have some trouble to mix/master these traditional instruments in combination with "others", such as synths, as they are interacting and interfering with EQing and dynamics like comp and limiter in a very "special" (= rather unpredictable and stubborn) way ... But of course I won't give up on this, 'cause I am stubborn myself, YES! So here comes one of those current works/attempts ... hope you enjoy ....
Remastered 11th of May: So ... I've finally (?) arrived at a mastering "compromise": I love the Imager and EQing of Ozone ... especially if you are crazy about weird delays and reverbs ( ... ahem ... ), Ozone is great to deal with the different layered reverb-spaces .... But sometimes I need to tame Ozone to meet the loudness-requirements and my own visions of dynamics. This works perfectly with Logics mastering-tools (yes, one can set loudness-targets with Ozone, but I just don't like the resulting sound(s) and intensities ... got my own visions of which parts of a composition "should" be louder/more intense and which shouldn't).
