Kaos Protokoll x Visual Development / Concept

Nothing beats working with dear friends! How to put what we did with bandleader Benedikt Wieland into words? We worked on translating his ideas into visuals. We defined a clear narrative for the entire release, one that connects the music, the visuals, the press release and the strategy and hence creates a cohesive work. We...

Jan Wagner x Creative Direction x Music PR

Hands down, this is the release of the year for me! And it was such a great joy to be able to work on something so fragile and personal. I am also honoured that Jan had made space for me to focus his visual output. From talking with him I knew that he wanted the...

Egopusher x Online Campaign x Creative Direction

Some jobs are just hella fun by design, and rolling with the fellas from Egopusher (Alessandro Giannelli & Tobias Preisig) was definitely that. The highlight was being able to help the extremely talented visual artist Benjamin Muzzin to create a semblance of a narrative in his video for the song Flake (to outline a series...

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...
Lucia Cadotsch x Online Promo x Speak Low Renditions Cassette

Lucia Cadotsch x Online Promo x Speak Low Renditions Cassette

This was definitely one of the highlights of 2017. Lucia’s music is very rich and original by default, but the cast of collaborators on the Speak Low Renditions did things to her compositions that are plain hard to put into words. Lucia made it a point to enlist some of the most uncompromising and unique...
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...
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...

Bass Sekolah – Creative Direction and Promo

Bass Sekolah make music in the jungle, quite literally, as they’re based right outside of the Seremban National Park, in Malaysia. I got a chance to help them sort out their image and launch their first single entitled Lighthouse. I wanted them to have an urban look, but with tropical inflections. For the cover I...

TRUE – Creative Direction and Promo

I’ve been working with this talented duo for a hot second now, mainly on promo. With the latest release, I stepped in to streamline their look and to create effective promo tools on a shoe-string budget. Needless to say, all of the ingredients were already there: a great looking band with a strong sense of...
Robots Dont Sleep Trailer + Video

Robots Dont Sleep Trailer + Video

It all started with a pitch against Partizan. Pol Ponsarnau and I were pretty sure that we wouldn’t be able to beat their proposal which, we were told at the time, was favored by both the band and the label. I thought that our only chance of knocking them out was to go for something...
Colors Fade Exhibit

Colors Fade Exhibit

The event took place at HHV Selected. The event was a celebration of the release of the RQM Colors Fade EP and featured a very personal painting by artist Remed (thank you brother). The image was applied directly to 1oo 7″ record covers. After the show, the records were sold separately, which means that the...
