National Anthem

I cannot remember exactly. I think it was a documentation about the USA related to the president elections in 2020.

A big challenge was to transform a three-four time into a four-four measure.

This was the fastest work I did till this time. I finished it within 10 hours.

Under the Mango Tree

A TV station broadcasted all James Bond films.
The first one (“Dr. No“) contains a scene with Sean Connery and Ursula Andress had a scene where she sang this song.

This inspired me to create this dance version. I took the original vocals from Diana Coupland. It was my first project where I used vocals in this way.

Fake News

I saw the discussion of the two candidates of the election for the president of the United States Donald Trump and Joe Biden on TV.

The next day I sat in my studio and worked on a new song. It should be something faster. Some hours later I had the basis of a nice melody. I saved my project and had been asked for a name. I remembered the confrontation on TV and entered “Fake News”.

From this time on the name persisted until I finished the song.

Last Day of Holiday

It was raining outside so I had time to do some creative work in my studio. I composed this track on the last day of my holiday.

Bring the Bass Back

I cannot remember where I got the inspiration from exactly. It was more experimenting with new features of my DAW.

Maybe got the idea during walking through the nature to leave the fourth kick away.

Falling in Love

This song is dedicated to my beloved wife for the twentieth wedding anniversary.

I got the inspiration while I watched Columbo “No Time to Die”, the only episode with no murder. This tune started at the beginning during a wedding party.

I also crated a version with the original vocals of Elvis Presley.

Flying Over Water

It was a rainy day. The rain pounded on the window.
I sat in my studio and played arround with some chords. Maybe the rain inspired me for this track.

Baby Elephant

During the Corona crisis our government in Austria published a lot of rules. One of them was to keep distance to each other of one meter – like the size of a baby elephant.

Several months later I saw a new ad about how to behave during holiday season. A police man explained to check before travelling if it is possible to keep the distance while I could hear an elephant trumpeting in the background (a great idea of the advertising agency).

A view hours later it rained and I started composing a song with this trumpeting elephant in my mind. I found a free sound sample and built around the music.

You can buy this track here.

Tequila

It was a documentation I saw on TV where this song was played for a view seconds. I could not get the saxophone melody out of my mind.

A view hours later I sat on my keyboard and tried to play it.

The outcome is this dance version of this famous Mexican-flavored rock and roll instrumental written by Danny Flores in 1957.

Back To Normality

The Corona crisis changed all our lives and our behaviour how we live together.

In Austria we are going back to normality slowly.

This motivated my to create this song.
