This is, IMHO, the best Kobayashi Maru ever got until now. The arrangement is cool, the beats are groovy and the lyrics... The lyrics... At one evening I sat down and I collected sentences that were running around the media in those days, changed and mixed them a bit, and finally got a wonderful piece of nonsense. read more »

Man - did I have a bad time when I wrote this bad excuse for lyrics or what? Here you have the perfect example for a guy with wayyyy too much time on his hand, really bored and depressed. After all the girls are ignoring him all the time...
Today I actually think the tune is a bit ridiculous - especially because the arrangement comes really close to a “The Klinik”-ripp off... ;-)

And another one of those “I wanna be a dark gothic artist” - kinda tracks... Instead of writing lyrics I this time simply read a passage from an old catholic book, telling the simple folks how baaad it would be to go to hell and suffer for all eternity. read more »

You see - there was some room left on this CD after I cut five minutes out of Lux, so here we go... ;)

As written above Deep Space was recorded in '92. The equippment at that point still was really minimalistic (I just had started to use keyboards and a sequencer, and I bought my first FX-processor). But the track itself turned out really well - even if you compare it to newer arrangements. Let’s do a quick walktrough: read more »

Vengol 1, recorded in 1991 on a friend’s Yamaha DX-7 synthesizer, was my very first tune done with midi. Before that I only had programmed my tunes on different tracker programs either on the Amiga or the C64. This one wasn’t recorded with a sequencer though, I planted notes with the mouse in Sonix, using it’s extremely limited midi functions.

Still using Sonix, this tune marks the next step: My very first own synthesizer, in this case the Roland MT32. Multitimbral, multichannels, an own delay-processor... I still love to use this little black box, it has a very warm sound. read more »

Maral is the last real evolutionary step I did until recording Evolutions itself: Moving from computer-based interfaces to a real sequencer and keyboard. It’s from the same tape as the uncut recording of Evolution, done in 1993. At this point I was allready using the Wavestation and the DR660 drumcomputer.

... and the next step: Just before I started using real sequencer-software for the first time, enabling me to do real-time recordings, I bought my first Keyboard, the Yamaha PSS790 and a great FX processor: The Boss SE50. read more »

Before we get to the main feature: This second version of Vengol was done on the MT32, just to try what it would sound like... It’s here to round up the first part of this CD.

This is another weird one. The lyrics are some random dialogue from a kid-sci-fi-novel.

This one’s a small homage to Laibach’s and Test Dept.’s way of using classic elements in their works. It’s nothing special but it still sounds nice. :)

A little tongue-in-cheek take on old style crime movie music.

A random sound collage about the vastness of empty space.
