► "Stroke" ... Preview of a new track

 Hey ๐Ÿ™‹‍♀️

A Happy New Year to all!
A new year, a new preview of an upcoming track of mine. The name of the track will be "Stroke". As always, it should be said that this is ONLY a preview and an alpha version. This version of the track, does not present the final version!

I have to go again now ... In the evening, God of War will be released for the PC. I will play that ๐Ÿ™ˆ I'm really looking forward to this game. 

Finally, I would like to say that I am still working on many other track at the moment. Some are "finished", others rather not. But I'm not satisfied with the result of the "finished" tracks. And so I just take my time and try to improve them a bit more. Please understand this. Thanks ๐Ÿ’™

► I wish you a Merry Christmas

 Guten Morgen ๐Ÿ™‹‍♂️

The year is coming to an end, and we are still in the Corona Pandemic. It's so sad ... ๐Ÿ˜ง And we just can't get out of this horror ... It was a tough year for me. When I turn on the TV, all I see is stupid people doing stupid things or seeing a conspiracy in everything. Where is it going to end ... *sigh* I hope Santa doesn't bring you any presents, you stupid, stupid people ... ๐Ÿคจ

Well, enough of that now. What happens now in the last days of this year? I kicked a lot of my followers on Twitter and even Instagram. Yes, I did! I'm not really active on Instagram anyway, and before I even opened the account to the public, I already had a few followers. As soon as I opened this account to the public, I lost almost all followers again in just a few hours. I am very happy to have lost these people. Because even if I had presentable content, you probably wouldn't like it. I already know this from twitter! And shortly after, I launched a major attack on Twitter and kicked out almost all of my followers! You have been following me for years and no matter what I post there, you have never once reciprocated. Not a single comment or like or whatever!! Away with you!!!

So, now I feel better ๐Ÿ˜Š

As I have written several times, I work hard on myself and my music. Unfortunately, I get very little or no feedback on my music. This often hurts me very much and is also not very good for my well-being. How often have I sat here thinking; What am I doing here? Who are you doing all this for? ...  I've really released a lot of music in the last few years. Sometimes good, sometimes very good and sometimes not so good music. I know I'm not Virgill, Chris Huelsbeck, kb, Hunz, etc. Nevertheless, I have already received many compliments from Virgill or even SagaMusix. And that does me so incredibly well. ๐Ÿ™‚ And then I think to myself, "I guess you're not that bad after all." But then I release a track and there's absolutely no response to it. Not even real downloads. And again I worry. What I'm doing wrong and what I could change. I fall privately again into deep depression and self-doubt. It's a back-and-forth ...

I'm working on a lot of tracks right now. I don't know yet if any of them will ever be finished. As I have written several times, I am working on a complete switch from Schism Tracker to OpenMPT. For me, it's very hard, and I don't know yet if it's all SO good. But I think a change could do me good. Even though I'm not 100% sure yet. I owe a lot to Schism Tracker. I just love this program. On the other hand, OpenMPT is more complex and offers me much more possibilities in the future. I just have to keep working with this program and invest a lot of time. That's also one of the reasons why I haven't released another track after Night Air

In the meantime, I have already published a few small previews of my upcoming track. Even though the track is now 100% finished, I still find little things I want to change. I would have loved to show you this track before the end of the year. Please forgive me if you don't get to hear a new track from me at the end of the year. ๐Ÿ’™

But now I have written much more than I actually wanted to. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It has also become much more private than I wanted it to be. Please excuse this.

And as always ... please excuse my bad English!

I wish you a great Christmas and stay healthy! ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿง‘‍๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„☃️❄️

► When will a new track be released?

 Hallo ๐Ÿ™‹‍♀️

Almost a month ago, I shared with you the latest status of a new track of mine. In that message, I also posted a 1-minute preview of the track at that time. I got 2x feedback and was very happy about it. ๐Ÿ˜Š I have not been very active lately. Neither here on my website nor on Twitter. There are several reasons for this! For one, I am just learning how to use OpenMPT. You won't believe this, but I had a VERY hard time switching from Schism Tracker to OpenMPT. I created my own keyboard layout for OpenMPT, as well as my own color scheme. Both will also find their way into one of the upcoming versions of OpenMPT! And that makes me very, very happy. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope to help many people who, like me, are struggling with the switch from Impulse or Schism Tracker to OpenMPT. You can download a small taste of the color scheme or keyboard layout here.

Another reason is that I'm really busy in my private life and don't have the time I'd like to have to work on new music. Although the track you already know on the 1-min preview is actually finished, I can't release it at the moment. I still find something I can improve. I want to present you a really good work this time. And as I said, I'm still working my way into OpenMPT. Whether I will release this track this year, I can't promise you at this point. 

I hope you are not too disappointed in me. I will get back to you before Christmas.

Sorry for my bad English.

PS: My Instagram page is now open for everyone. I am not very active there ๐Ÿคจ

► What's new?

Guten Morgen ๐Ÿ™‹‍♂️

What's new?
Recently I had published here several small previews of a new track of mine. This track is 98% done, and it turned out really great. ๐Ÿ˜Š You probably remember my friend SagaMusix.de, right? He gave me (once again) many helpful tips that I tried to implement in my track. Thank you so much!

As I said before, this track is now 98% done. There is still a lot to do. I'm still working on some samples/instruments. It still needs some "fine-tuning". Whether I will release this - or any other - track before the end of the year, I can't promise, unfortunately. ๐Ÿ˜’ I just don't want to give you false hope or make any promises. I also have many other things to do in my everyday life. The hobby (music) has to come a little shorter at the moment.

Also, I want to do a lot of things differently in the future in terms of my music. I really get into OpenMPT a lot and always learn something new. In the past I have released many tracks. With some of these tracks, I now wish I had put more work into this one. I want to work harder and do an even better job in the future! That's something I'd like to do. That's why I might release fewer tracks per year, but I'll release better ones ... I hope ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope you understand that.

Since I don't have a finished track at the moment, there's a little surprise from me. Another little taste of another track of mine. This track is still at the very beginning and can be compared to an alpha version. Please note that this track does not represent the finished version!!

And since I'm sure you're already excited about the track, to which I've already published a few small previews here recently, I'm now giving exclusive insights into this track, which is now (as I mentioned above) 98% finished ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I hope you like what you hear. Enjoy the 1 min preview!

And now? Can you imagine now how hard I try to write even better tracks? I really hope you enjoy the two previews of two new tracks. You can contact me at any time and give me feedback.


PS: Sorry for my bad English. ๐Ÿคฆ‍♂️

► Night Air - my contribution to The Sound of SceneSat Volume 6

 Yo ๐Ÿ™‹‍♀️

And here is my track: Night Air - my contribution to The Sound of SceneSat Volume 6. I thank the whole SceneSat team for inviting me again. I am very proud to have been part of it.  Night Air is based on my track The Remains of the Day. I wrote The Remains of the Day in 2019. Originally for a team from a university in Norway for their short film. There is nothing more to say at the moment. I think I'll give you the link to my new track now. I hope you will enjoy this. 

More information about Night Air can be found on the following page:

Yours faithfully,
