Interview at Radio Rheinwelle

Radio Rheinwelle
On March 11th, 2012 I was invited to the studios of Radio Rheinwelle, a local radio station for the area I’m living at for an interview. We talked about my work as a composer and about the premiere of a Magnificat composed by me, which will take place on April 29th in Bingen (More about that very soon in another post). It was great fun and I hope the listeners found my ramblings interesting as well.

If you speak German, have a listen:

Musikmesse 2011

I will be at Musikmesse this year at the booth of SoundFactory Tonstudio, where I have the pleasure to be working right now. I think Musikmesse is a great venue to talk to fellow artists and to find out what’s new on the table.
You can find me on the showfloor Thursday and possibly Friday, too.
See you there!

Sibelius 6 Workshop at the PCK Mainz

You’ve heard about that strange „Sibelius“ a lot of times, but never really gotten around to check it out?
Or are you a seasoned Sibelius user, but have not (yet) upgraded to Sibelius 6?
Maybe you indeed use Sibelius 6, but have felt there was more?

Wait no longer!
On Saturday, 01/29/2011 from 4 PM, there will be a Sibelius 6 workshop at the Peter Cornelius Conservatoire Mainz, hosted by yours truly.

We will deal with a lot of topics, including:
- Introduction to Sibelius 6 / Sibelius 6 First
- Writing your own scores
- Composing with Sibelius
- Creating scores for ensembles
- Use in education
- Creation of demo recordings
There will also be time for some BYOQ (Bring Your Own Questions).

Admission is free, so please come and see for yourself. You can send me a message via the contact form if you want to attend, and I’ll make sure you have a seat :)
Please register on the Facebook event page.
