SUPERBOOTH 2021 – Special Report in 4 Episodes

Four days of electronic superpower are over. Superbooth 2021 was THE event, we all waited for so long. After 2 1/2 years it happened again in Berlin and it was a full success. Nearly 140 companies presented their latest instruments and innpvations around the field of electronic music. And I was in the middle of that field and filmed like a whirlwind with my camera and captured everything I could get: interviews, music, the atmosphere and good mood. You can watch my impressions in four very long episodes of FREAK-OUT-YOUR-SYNTH on YouTube. Click on the videos to jump over…and take some time watching it.

More Freak-Out-Your-Synth here 



Hello together,

I am happy to announce the third episode of my synthesizer tutorial series FREAK-OUT-YOUR-SYNTH.

In this episode I present the Prophet-10 analog synthesizer from SEQUENTIAL.  It is a beauty and a beast in one instrument. After a short introduction I present the several modules, like the oscillators or the very versatile filter module. It is like a life demonstartion. The sound was directly recorded during the film session. The video ends with a brandnew episode of ONE-SYNTH-ONLY In this video you can see the Prophet in action. I recorded a complete piece of music with this synthesizer only.

So enjoy the video now, leave your comments, like it and subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Have a good time

Making-of Kaleidoscope – FERNE ZIELE featuring Korg M1 Workstation

Hi Guys,


a new video is online in my YouTube series MY STUDIO ALBUMS.

In part 1  I’ll speak about the making-of my third solo-album KALEIDOSCOPE, which I had composed, performed and produced in 1989. I also present the Korg M1 Workstation that I had used heavily during my recording-sessions and in my concerts. AND…I’ll speak about some nice memories from that time. The whole thing is followed by FERNE ZIELE in full album length accompanied by some rare video footage from my concert 1989 in Dresden where I had played some tracks from this album.

Wie erst jetzt bekannt wurde, ist der Mitgründer der “RockinBerlin” Website und Mit-initiator der Gedenktafel für das “Electronic Beat Studio” Bernd M. Radowicz am 27. Februar 2021 nach langer Krankheit verstorben. ich habe ihn im Januar 2020 zum ersten mal kennengelernt. Den Kontakt hatte Thomas Kessler, der Gründer des “Electronic Beat Studio” hergestellt. Nach beinahe einem Jahr, am 04. Dezember 2020, haben wir uns zum ersten mal persönlich kennengelernt. Wie für uns alle, so war es auch und vielleicht gerade für ihn ein großer Tag. Ich bin glücklich darüber, dass er das noch erleben durfte.

As just become known Bernd M. Radowicz, the co-founder of the “RockinBerlin” website and co-initiator of the memorial plaque for the “Electronic Beat Studio” passed away on february 27, 2021 after a long illness. I met him for the first time in january 2020. The contact was made by Thomas Kessler, the founder of the “Electronic Beat Studio”. For almost a year, on December 4th, 2020, we met personally for the first time. As for all of us, it was perhaps especially for him a great day. I am happy that he was able to experience that.
