Music

I was fascinated by music since I can think. I learned several instruments as a child at school, which helped to get a feel for the general idea. Later I took lessons in playing the guitar, although I never managed it to any degree of perfection, maybe because I just did not devote enough time to it. I also learned to play the Didgeridoo, which is a very fascinating instrument which requires circular-breathing to play it properly. Later, I started to learn how to play the traverse flute and piano.

Instrumental recordings

Digital stuff

On the other hand, my interest in music is not limited to instruments in the classical sense. I also like to experiment with electronic (digitally or analog generated) music. I also own two speed-variable turn-tables and quite an amount of european underground tekno records. I ocassionally spin in public, although never for profit, always Just For Fun.

Events

It is very rare that I actually find the time to do record spinning in public, but if it happens, it will get announced here:

The archive

Following is a list of recordings of various experiments I did in the past.

Music theory

Nurishing the cognitive aspects of music is a very important part of improving ones knowledge about the field. Music theory can get boring after a while, especially since the topic is seemingly endless. However, dabbling in it from time to time can really help you in the long run.

I currently recommend the Music Theory book on WikiBooks as a really great and comprehensive starting point to deepen your knowledge in this area.

Accoustics

At some point in your musical development, you will have to deal with some peculiarities around accustics. I am no expert on this topic either, so for now I can only offer a very useful link to a comprehensive article about Acoustic Treatment and Design for Recording Studios and Listening rooms.
