Ikarus x Music Video x Creative Direction

We’ve been sitting on this one for quite a while. It was originally a part of the visual concept for the Ikarus Chronosome LP. The key idea on this project was to base the entire CI on the splintered, jagged visual grammar of installation artist Clemens Behr. Clemens not only contributed the collage which was...
Creative Consulting x Online Promo x For Band JPTR

Creative Consulting x Online Promo x For Band JPTR

One of my key contributions to this project was quality control. I helped the group focus their ideas, kill a few half-baked videos and, on occasion, pushed an edit that extra 10 percent (ironed out the flow, resolved the “3rd act” etc.). But the thing that I’m most satisfied with is being able to help...
Ikarus - Visual Development

Ikarus – Visual Development

I’m really happy with this one. Apart from the results – which are amazing and have been well received by the scene and the media – what I loved most about this project was being able to work with Olivier Baumann and Clemens Behr (and bringing the two of them together). Both of them are...
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...
Visualizing Music Workshop 2.0 for Music Pool Berlin

Visualizing Music Workshop 2.0 for Music Pool Berlin

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. I started with the history of  visual development and music marketing. Then, based on concrete examples, we explored how visual tools can be used to create and reinforce an...

Paraesthesia Corporate ID

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...
Kaos Protokoll Image Development / Overhaul

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...
Len Sander x Image Development

Len Sander x Image Development

As a part of the image development work for the band Len Sander, in addition to producing and directing their video, I also got to handle the creative direction for their press photos. My main objective was to create a cohesive triptych, one with an iconic feel – a set of images that would function...

Ungrowing by Len Sander is the first music video produced via initialsLP, and also a taste of more video content to come soon. The piece was shot with a talented team; at the creative core: cinematographer Ludwig Linnekogel and editor Gregory Norton. The video features krumping dancer extraordinaire Armando Lil’ A Shala, supported by the...
