Keltenfürst | Epic Music | 2022
The Celts created burial mounds for their tribal princes in the Hallstatt period (8th – 5th century BC). In the middle there was a wooden burial chamber, around which a mound of earth was piled up. Around my hometown in the southwest of Germany there are about 30 such graves. Through agriculture, however, these were leveled over time. However, there is also a grave mound model in original size. I often pass it by. And so I had the idea of composing a track about an imaginary Celtic chieftain who lived, fought and died here 2,700 years ago. In the music video you can see the grave mound model.
Sailor´s Fate | Epic Pirate Music | 2021
„Darkness all around, fire in the sky, everything is lost, but you´ll never die“ – so the choir sings in this epic piece about this sailor´s life. As a pirate, he has won a lot, but also lost everything. His name will be remembered in songs and tales. Inspired by the great compositions of Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt, who wrote the soundtrack for the Hollwood-Movie „Pirates oft he Caribbean“. The story of Captain Jack Sparrow and his sailing-ship Black Pearl.
Heartstrings | Emotional Music | 2020
In autumn 2020 I began to compose a piece that describes the darkness and the threat of pestilence in the Middle Ages – an adaptation to the corona pandemic. I had the dark sound and tense chords – but I was still missing the melody. Over and over again I played the same tones. But they were not threatening, these sounded dreamy and sentimental. And so I stopped to work on “Pandemia” (for the time being) and composed “Heartstrings” suitable for the season.
Bran Castle | Epic Music | 2019
Dracula himself welcomes you in his castle. Today a ball takes place at Bran Castle, the so-called Törzburg. The orchestra plays to dance the night away. A glittering feast begins.
The piece changes after the intro of 4/4 into a fast 6/8 bar. It is time for waltz.
Call Of Eve | Vampiric Music | 2019
In 1723, the lady of the castle Eve disappeared without a trace. Since then, travelers have reported on a woman’s song that calls them into the old walls on stormy nights. One night we too hear the song. We follow the voice and enter the ballroom. The harpsichord plays as if by magic and Eve appears to invite us to dance …
Rising | Epic Music | 2018
„A hero will rise out of the dark. He brings back the light into the world“
This epic piece is divided into three sections: At the beginning, the world has been destroyed by war. Then there is a choir calling for a savior. Hope has come true and the expected hero appears. The rescue is accompanied by powerful drums, string orchestra and electric guitar.
The Secret 2018 | Epic Music | 2018
In 1999 I wrote the early version of “The Secret”. I used this simple midi file as a background music on my first website.
The story of “The Secret” is a treasure quest in dark places.
Here ist the version from 2018 with horns, symphonic orchestra and choire. Just for once you are allowed to fast-forward to 02:00, if you don´t want to listen to the whole song 😉 What the young woman is looking for in the video in the dark forest is up to your imagination. 😉
The Great Bell | Mystic Pop | 1999
In 1995, Coolio´s “Gangsta´s Paradise“ was a megahit. I like the catchy melody, the melancholic mood, the bassline and the beat. That was the base for “The Great Bell”. In this piece, I imagine looking down upon an old city from a hill. From far away the church clock chimes conveying the emotion of home and hope.
Ballad Of The Unicorn | Mystic Dance Pop | 1999
During a drive, America’s “The Last Unicorn” was on the radio. I remembered the cartoon I liked to see when I was a little boy. And so I composed this pop-ballad with dance-elements of the nineties.
Yeah | 1990´s Dancefloor / Eurodance | 1998
During the 1990´s, Eurodance had it´s great time. Dr. Alban, Haddaway, DJ Bobo & Co. were played up and down into the clubs. This inspired me in 1998 for the recordings to „Yeah“ with the typical piano- and drumsound. On my keyboard, the soundfile „Yeah“ was already stored – and so the composition has its name.
A-GoGo | Mystic Pop | 1998
An Agogo is a musical instument with two bells. This allows to play two different pitched notes. Not as the Vestigium-Agogo. In this composition, the Agogo-Bell is the melody instrument. I figured a walk through ruins with a torch in my hand. We came across the library with dusty books and rotten chests. Old – or in other words „a long time ago“. That sounds like our melody instrument and so is the title of the song.
To The Stars | Mystic Dance Pop | 1998
I tickled the ivories with a synthie-bell-sound. I played some chords note by note – and that sounds to me like sparkling stars. Maybe I spent to much time in playing computer games before 😉 But the idea for this composition was born.
