Tobias Preisig - Diver LP / International Online Campaign

Tobias Preisig – Diver LP / International Online Campaign

There are definitely levels to what “deep” means in regards music, and this record from Tobias Preisig definitely set a whole new standard. This minimalistic ambient / drone record based around a solo violin was produced by Jan Wagner and released by Quiet Love Records. The results: BBC 6 Mary Anne Hobbes Recommends, BBC 6...
MONOH self-titled EP - International Online Campaign

MONOH self-titled EP – International Online Campaign

It’s privilege to see an artist finding their own voice. MONOH is a sitar player, traditionally schooled. With his debut EP, he decided to explore different shades of electronica, from ambient to more dance-floor friendly styles. The material was produced by Alessandro Giannelli of Egopusher. The EP was released by Quiet Love Records. Some of...
Product Design as Media Strategy /  Masterclass at BIMM Berlin

Product Design as Media Strategy / Masterclass at BIMM Berlin

I was invited by the kind folks at the BIMM Berlin to give a class on product design as media strategy. I spoke about how you can design objects – which are not CDs or vinyl – that can embody the spirit and key narratives of a release. If you do this right, the media...

Press Releases / Black Sea Dahu, Rosa Anschütz, VSITOR

How You Swallowed your Anger is the new single from Urban Folk outfit Black Sea Dahu. Picking up where the band’s critically acclaimed White Creatures LP left off, this syrupy ballad goes even deeper into the complex anatomy of a relationship, and specifically a break-up. The emphasis here is not on what the lover lost, but rather what...
Rosa Anschütz Rigid EP / International Online Campaign

Rosa Anschütz Rigid EP / International Online Campaign

Another gem courtesy of Quiet Love Records, produced by Jan Wagner. The only thing that I could criticise about this one, is the fact that it was just too damn short. Here are some of the media responses: Front page placement on Bandcamp New & Notable, Bandcamp Daily, xlr8r, NBHAP, ATTN Magazine / Resonance FM,...
VSITOR Keep On Running LP / International Online Campaign

VSITOR Keep On Running LP / International Online Campaign

Keep on Running is one of those records that I would put on the same shelf with Portishead, Radiohead, LOW, Tv On The Radio etc. – ie. the type of artists that don’t sacrifice depth in order to please. Hence, they make records that grow on you, ones that never seem to get old. I...
M4Music Zürich x Keynote on The Art of PR and Visual Development

M4Music Zürich x Keynote on The Art of PR and Visual Development

The kind people from Sonart and Indie Suisse invited me to give a keynote at M4Music on the importance of visual and audio visual content in promoting music. I really wanted to make a strong point that we are increasingly relying on the use of visual tools to promote music, arguably it’s all about content...
The Art Of Music PR & Visual Development 4 Day Workshop @ MusicPool Berlin

The Art Of Music PR & Visual Development 4 Day Workshop @ MusicPool Berlin

This was the first time I got to give an intense workshop on the subject: four sessions, four hours each. I wanted to see if it was possible to make artists actually do the work, real work, prepping a release from the point of view of visual strategy and content PR. The shorter format workshops...
Diskret (self-titled EP) x Online Promo

Diskret (self-titled EP) x Online Promo

This was the second time I got to collaborate with the kind people from Quiet Love Records, a new boutique label from Zürich bent on championing left field sound. What I love about Diskret is that they brought a sense of humour and a lightness of spirit to ambient music, traditionally a space for more...
Press Releses: Black Sea Dahu & HELY

Press Releses: Black Sea Dahu & HELY

Here are two of my favourite press releases that I wrote this year: BLACK SEA DAHU / White Creatures: White Creatures – the debut full-length from Swiss outfit Black Sea Dahu –  is the type of record that will rearrange your internal architecture and, ultimately, make you see the world and yourself anew. If you let...
Kaos Protokoll x Visual Development / Concept

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

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...
