October 14, 2015: ∆D album "Second" is available on all major distribution platforms.

I recommend getting the album in lossless format (FLAC encoded) via this link on bandcamp.

 September 24, 2015: ∆D album "Second" release date is sceduled for the 14th of October!!

 Finally it´s finished. After a nearly 6 year endeavor the album „Second“ concentrates on the classical form of program music: To capture the mood and feelings of photography, drafts and copper engravings.

 Partly analytically focussed on the subject, partly metaphysically: To fetch the inner feeling presented in the arrangement of the scene, the stand of the beholder - the one who creates the moment in his spirit.

The album keeps its original dynamic response due to intentional abandonment of loudness maximization.

11th of August 2012 - ∆D´s news for fall 2012


Not the most often updated site on the web...but, hey...yes, it´s still alive like myself (at least I think so). It´s been over a year now since I shutdown my social-media activity on facebook and myspace, yet some unerased info blog here´n there is still accessable. As the web forgets nothing and only ranks news by public demand I still persue my policy of information privacy so I avoid bombing you with newsblogs every hour ;o).

We had a couple of shows with Darkseed in the last weeks and we´re glad to be back on the road, even if the concerts are rather scarce and larger touring plans are currently unrealistic. After the summer break we plan to record at least an EP with our new "voice" Mike and hopefully get to play the long anticipated show in Kiev in November.

My project Eyes Turned Skyward will see the seventh full-length CD release in winter this year, so watch out for news on the upcoming release date.

And where´s my baby? Yes, my new solo album "Second" is still in cradle of creation and I want to share some thoughts with you about it here. You may have witnessed that I first intended the album to be released in 2011 and then postponed the date a few times. How so? Well, I´ve composed enough material for a double-CD release but the main thing I still hold it back is a very personal thing: It just doesn´t feel right now, not right for me. As an artist I´ll ever strive on to refine my work and to cut free the details of my vision. In the last 18 months I retracted from nearly all personal bonds to get my head free of things misleading me. As to the parallel to Nietzsche´s "Zarathustra" I´m still up in the mountains enjoying the time without company. Still the chatter of the masses in the marketplace won´t attract me.




27th of April 2012 - ∆D with Darkseed @ TIC Club (Muehlheim a. d. Ruhr)


On monday the 30th we´ll playing a concert in Muehlheim @ TIC Club. Stay dark, inner circle members...we´ll see you there...

6th of June, 2011: Social-network-shutdown


Today I feel that the time for a decision has come. From today on I´ll shutdown my facebook and myspace social network for different reasons. For the ones who care, here are a few words why.


First of, we should be aware that these global acting companies like facebook and many others are storing our personal data and when using these platforms we gain them the legal rights to profit from this data. In near future we will also see commercial movements of these companies with products only few can imagine yet. All the overflow of information leads to an intelligent filtering system for information. These "bots" are fed with information now and when the standard user will face the problem of how to distinguish vital information from spam even in his social network the day has come for these companies to sell us their new "Bots" and "Avatars". These will be our online alter-egos, our information scouts, the nanny of the digital infantiles, and for most of us polished status-symbols in the world of bits and bytes. These lines sound like being taken from different sci-fi movies or worse, but yet in every fiction lies a theoretical future. For myself, I try to form a world which is different from where it tends to lead now.


The information I get everyday when using these networks is mostly unreflected profanatory pseudo-news. Most of the people aren´t even aware the every character they type or every video link they share redundantly is stored information and costs energy and computing power. It´s nothing more than environmental pollution. We could shutdown quite a few power plants if we keep the bullshit for ourselfs.


I think that we´re nearing the parting of the ways. The one who acts responsible for themself and the world and the ones which do not.


In the end, there´s another very personal point for me to cut this line: Very few people contact me directly and consistantly and even fewer get to see me. These chosen ones are called my friends. Real friends.


This website will be updated as usual so you can keep track of my work and passion.


For the ones who want to contact me you can still use my email






May the 4th, 2011: Huh??


Quite a long time without update. Well, still breathing. At last. Certain things keep you busy for a while and not every seed you sow can be harvested in the way it´s planned. Spent the last weeks checking the songs for "Second" so far, tweaking here and there but this baby will still need a while. And reading a whole lot of books kept me from updating the virtual reality. 


With Eyes Turned Skyward I will have a small club-gig on the 18th of June here in Munich, location and more to follow.

3rd of February 2011:


The pain returned. After weeks of distraction and imperfect sketches, thrown-away lyric sheets and discarded arrangements my muse found me again. Picture#14 is currently in a rough state but carries all the massive metaphorical parallels needed for the interpretation of my chosen model: One of Albrecht Duerer´s masterpieces, the engraving "Melencolia I". Praise you, fellow one...good to feel you here...we´ll get it whole again...someday...




1st of January 2011:


Thank you all for your mails and well-wishes on new year´s day. Here´s a short snippet called "Distant Bounds". Even if we are scattered all over the planet, and some far beyond, we´re aware of each other. Keep it on.
