Synth Talk

This is the Sound-Studio “Tiefklang”

german for “Low Tones” or “Intruding Sound”

The name stands for two reasons: First I like deep, hypnotic bass sound in music, bass has not to be only for poor accompaniment.

and secondly: music is at its best when there is a deeper meaning, music for symbols, guided by spontanious feelings.


                 Below the apparatus: I´m a hardware fan of the machines of the 70ies and 80ies.

Every function comes from a machine, every knob results in a change. sometimes virtuals, sometimes transistors; even mixed together, but all fine hardware to feel it in your hands.

And: every synth has its own unique sounding such as the legendary Moog, Roland, Korg, Yamaha and PPG Sound, newly a Virus, a Nord and a Korg´s MMT too.

In common most synths sound universal today; very sorry to Fantom, Triton and Motif...

All tracks I was playing mostly live and improvised on Stereo 24/96, analogue Tape or on Multitrack
