Der satan­archäo­lügenialko­höllische Wunschpunsch, Puppentheater Halle

I made music/sound for the beautiful Michael Ende piece Der satanarchäolügenialkohöllische Wunschpunsch, directed by Ivana Sajevic and premiering on 28th November 2015 at Puppentheater Halle.

The piece mixed 3D animation & multimedia elements, human actors, and puppets, and was played by Franziska Rattay, Sylvia Werner, Nico Parisius and Christian Sengewald.

I’ve made an “album” of the music I made for this piece:

There’s some more information on the Puppentheater Halle website.

Manifesto – Black Milk Impulses released on Metarecords

META 070

The music is presented as the accidental rumblings of a musical virus. The tracks tumble out of the speakers like an intoxicated businessman, but a close listen reveals that each piece is anything but inebriated…………..The joy of Manifesto is the sounds between the notes, sampled crowds, static and these interlude tracks of less than two minutes that contain the seeds of extended improvisations.

Mark Corroto – All About Jazz

At any moment, any of the three players seems entirely free to do as they wish, whether that be to inject a melody, a solo or a burst of rhythm; by some alchemy, that does not lead to a free-for-all or a cacophony but music that is focused, coherent and fluid.
