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,...
"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...
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...
Dubokaj "Alpine Dub Re Dubbed" LP Promo

Dubokaj “Alpine Dub Re Dubbed” LP Promo

I love working with Dubokaj. This time around I got to promote his LP of re-Dubs and versions. This one was clearly cut for hardcore Dub consumers, so I reached out to the scene and the media that supports it. Here are the results: xlr8r, Reggae France, Dub.com, So Low Bass, Fat Kid On Fire,...
Robot Koch "Particle Fields" Online Promo

Robot Koch “Particle Fields” Online Promo

It’s always great to work with Robot Koch, and even better to see how he develops as an artist. On “Particle Fields” he joined up with composer, violinist and string arranger Savannah Jo Lack and together they created an epic score to an imaginary film. It’s music you listen to alone and with headphones on,...
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...
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...
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...
Bass Sekolah - Creative Direction and Promo

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...
