CD re-release on Zoharum!
The visual art of my wife Birgit Schweimler has been a key source of inspiration for over two decades. Her paintings gave the covers of my first 3 solo albums their very distinctive look and perfectly catch the moods, textures and tones of the music.
I regularly contribute to exhibitions of her work with sound installations or live performances.
Visit Birgit's webpage for her view on our mix of "sound & colours".

Music for exhibitions
Continuous generative soundscape "Blue Shimmer" for the kunstVOLL exhibition (Dießen, March 2021).
Multiple asynchronous looped strings of randomised samples and notes are triggered from a Synthstrom Deluge sequencer. These events are then echo-trailed with an Electro-Harmonix 95000 looper and the resulting stream is reverberated with a Strymon Nightsky pedal. The soundscape is therefore highly aleatoric and statistically not repeat in our lifetime. At any time, unique surprises may occur and disappear again forever...

In 2001 Fragminder released a single player board game "Fragmind" which was based on analytical deduction methods used in molecular biology. To promote the game, an electronic PC-based version was also released for which I designed the interactive event-noises and soundscapes.
The 1 hour track below (Fragmind - recycled & expanded) is a further exploration of the sounds I made for the game.
