Workflow Insights

After a longer abstinence from blogging, I see it as my duty to report a little about my current projects and work. Of course, the last weeks were not characterized by doing nothing, but a pretty dense workflow accompanied me daily. 

The topic “Artificial Intelligence” is progressing breathtakingly and as far as I have the time, I am working deeply into the topic and try to combine the incredible new possibilities with my skills and work routines artistically.

I’m taking an approach based on mixed-media – which means combining Photoshop, Procreate on the iPad as well as Stable Diffusion and Midjourney into a design mix and trying to perfect a fusion of all the techniques at my disposal.

Currently, I am working on a photo book on the theme of “Women and Worlds of AI”. This work is taking up a large portion of my artistic life, but is also incredibly fun and enjoyable.

In addition, I have recently released several texture packs for 3D artists, submitted various stock photo works, and also released orderable everyday products with graphics by me. I must stress that I have to arrange this alongside my main job as a teacher and educator – which means my remaining free time has shrunk to a minimum.

Of course, sound design and experimental music are still big points in my artistic life and learning various electronic musical instruments and synthesizers costs me just as much time and effort.

Unfortunately I don’t have enough time right now to finish and release the long overdue three music albums with Chris Wittkowsky, which we recorded and mastered over the last months. 

Hopefully this will change in the next weeks. After all, I have to finish a term paper and prepare my lessons at school at the same time. In summary, that means – full workload, but also some artistic satisfaction.

Between the Years – What´s going on?

Time between Christmas and New Years Eve became rather silent here at my studio excepting some jams with Chris and visits from my family. School is in holidays and they were pretty needed by me for relaxing, regeneration and new thoughts.

New instruments like Microfreak from Arturia and Digitakt from Elektron were my Christmas goodies for this year and i am using the cocooned winter time for welcoming them in a stately way.

It will need some time to get fully inside this mighty instruments which brings a lot of fun, spice and joy into the studio workflow.

Also we are planning and sketching up the upcoming Art´s Birthday in January 2022, celebrated by Pomodoro Bolzano as every year since a long time now.

This shows our invitation card for the voice calls. And here comes the original invitation from Max´s official art-mail:

End of Summer 2021 – Some Conclusion

During this high temperatured and almost cocooned summer i found time to explore and study a lot of my collected and new bought sound-gear. There were so many gaps to close and learning curves to rise – time ran away fast and without any boredom.

With Chris i met weekly and we were able to record a lot of jams and project-sparks for our planned two albums, which will be released soon.

Also a few times the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse rehearsed in a very minimal summer edition – not many of us had time to meet. The few who arrived virtual had great moments together and Björn´s screenshot shows that in a wonderful way.

Max came back from his summer travelling and we met as soon as possible to talk about more virtual and cyberspace related art projects in the near future.

For Max´s and Frieda´s POZOR UTOPIA finissage we had to plan realtime visuals on the virtual building and performance space into Second Life.

One variation of my Novae performance seemed to fit well for that project and i had a nice virtual simulation meeting with Max.

And as a final summer activity i produced with Max and Chris an synthesizer based experimental new track with vocals from Max – completely live performed and recorded on this moment. So this summer is now successfully and officially finished for me.

In this music-video all latest impressions and emotions are weaved together – nothing more to say at the moment.
