Artist Relations and Communications for MNTN

Artist Relations and Communications for MNTN

I’m really happy to announce that I was  just appointed as the Artist Relations and Communications Manager at MNTN. MNTN is a software and audio engine that literally made immersive / 3D audio production and playback available to just anyone producing music. It’s easy to use: it works with just about any music production software,...
Phall Fatale - Visual ID

Phall Fatale – Visual ID

It was great to work with this eclectic bunch. What the individual members of the group accomplished in the past is part and parcel of music / Jazz history proper. I was contacted by the kind folks at Irascible Music to make a  full image over-haul for the group, and to create  a strong and...
Dubokaj "Alpine Dub" - Visual ID

Dubokaj “Alpine Dub” – Visual ID

I love to see when an artist arrives musically and settles into his/her bones proper. And this is what happened with Dubokaj’s “Alpine Dub”, which dropped recently on Mouthwatering Records. It started out as a side project, as a soul remedy of sorts and took four years to make, and million versions till it was...
SAD Feat. Slum Village & Djemeia LP Campaign

SAD Feat. Slum Village & Djemeia LP Campaign

Mouthwatering Records always brings them good releases to the table. This one is not really typical for them, as it leans more into that 90s live Detroit Soul sound, but it’s still great. The production is solid, played by a tight outfit, and it also happens to feature  the latest configuration of the Slum Village...
Tim Aminov "One Lone Survivor" Video Premiere

Tim Aminov “One Lone Survivor” Video Premiere

The kind folks at Sonar Kollektiv contacted me to help them with the premiere of the video for Tim Aminov’s “One Lone Survivor”. The deal was that I hit up 30 of the most coveted blogs and secure a high profile premiere for the clip. Finally, the clip premiered via Spex Magazine in Germany and...
Smpl Thngs: Music vs Illustration

Smpl Thngs: Music vs Illustration

This is a project that I started with my dear friends: singer songwriter Graciela Maria, and illustrator / painter Maki Shimizu. The idea was to get together for a series of one take recording sessions, at which Maki would also illustrate the music on the spot. The final recordings featured cello arrangements from Simon Houghton....

After hosting the panel about independent music videos for Music Pool Berlin, I was invited back to give a workshop on the art of visual development.

This is the final design for an event entitled “Paraesthesia” which we organized with the Taucher Sound team. Our crew included: Leonard de Leonard, Johannes Scherzer, DE KJ, Simon Houghton, Gianpaolo Camplese, Grace Nicholas, and Richard Schulz.

Take Berlin "Motion" Music Video

Take Berlin “Motion” Music Video

What do you do when almost all parameters are preset by the artist (locations, styling, performance style, choreography etc.)? You work on the style of presenting the footage. This was the case with the video for Take Berlin’s single “Motion”. We had a couple of days to shoot this and a limited amount of Super...

‘Visualizing Music’ Workshop

I was invited by the kind people at the Scweizer Musik Syndikat (The Swiss Music Syndicate), a government funded organization supporting musicians, to give a 4 hour workshop about  visual identity development for artists and specific releases, in the context of a greater promo strategy. The workshop covered: the basics of branding, the history of...
Oskaar 'Never Met You' Online Campaign

Oskaar ‘Never Met You’ Online Campaign

I love working with driven artists, as a campaign is only as good as the tools that you have to work with. Oskaar definitely delivered: from a very focused concept artwork, to the jump off video featuring a collaboration of performance artist Fa’vela Punk, creative directed by Daniel (Samo) Bolliger . The whole package was...

Kaos Protokoll Image Development / Overhaul

This is the direction that initialsLP will be taking more in the coming years; I’m planning to do more image development jobs and concentrate on promo tool development and new ways of presenting music (multimedia and object design). This particular project was about a full image overhaul for the Jazz outfit Kaos Protokoll. I had...
