Music and visuals

Music

I am a bass player and (occasional) composer. At the moment, I have two bands.

Ego Super

Ego Super is a psycho-rap-rock band. As the genre description suggest, the music (and lyrics) are inspired by (clinical) psychology. My band members are friends with whom I studied psychology and with whom I also played in other bands before. I am happy that we are still making music together although we unfortunately don’t live in the same city anymore. Our most recent (2021) release is called “Kaviar Katharsis”.

You can find out more about the band on their website.

Kaviar Katharis video

This video gives an idea about the band. The track is about excess and decadence. I am the actor in the green dress. The singer is my friend Daniel and the guy in the grey robe is my friend Pit and the drummer of the band.

Concatenate

My second band is called concatenate and it is a duo with my wife, Marta. She plays cello, and I play electric guitar. We compose and play instrumetnal music of various styles, ranging between Neue Musik, and Jazz, Folklore, and dreamy atmospheric music. In 2021, we released our first album “U+1F407; U+1F990”.

quadratisch rekords

In 2008 or so, I have founded a music label together with friends. It is called quadratisch (the German word for square-shaped) rekords. If you are interested, visits the label’s website.

Animation

For some years, especially through the first years of my PhD, wenn I discovered dataviz and programming, I produced square-shaped animations that were based on mixing filmed material or videos from internet with data-generated visuals (e.g. based on stochastic processes such as random walks). I have created a sub page here to show some of the material. Be careful to make sure you have a good internet connection for the subpage because it creates some traffic.
