I met my friend Markus Reuter 30 years ago on a Guitar Craft course with Robert Fripp. We played in a trio with Leander Reininghaus for a few years during the mid-90s, and together with Tobias Reber we even started a record label for algorithmic computer music at one point 🙂
Markus has become a world famous professional musician, composer, music teacher, and instrument designer in the meantime. I felt honored when he interviewed me for his new interview podcast series.
We chatted for more than 90 minutes about my music of course but also about my take on spirituality (and the meaning of ‘spiritual inquiry’) and my life.
In September 2020, sound artist Johannes S. Sistermanns visited me to make an interview for a radio feature about my music.
The feature was on air on January 19, 2021 in SWR2, a German radio station. Big thanks to Mr. Sistermanns for this thoughtful and sensitive musical portrait!
I talked (in German) about my music, what inspires me, and how I usually let it happen on its own, instead of trying to control its direction – and I wondered what the broad range of musical styles that can be found in my output is like for listeners.
Find out for yourself. The music presented in this hour contains abstract computer music, Turkish folkrock, minimalism, ambient, psychedelic rock music, and more. If your brain is wired similar to mine, you will enjoy this. Even if you know some of my music, you will probably hear things you didn’t know.
