50 Snapshots is completed and online

Posted by admin on July 3, 2016 – 15:04

This year 2016 I created a “catalogue” of my instruments and sonic possibilities as a multi-instrumentalist. For that purpose I recorded  several short snippets with each and every instrument I own and play, performed solo or accompanied by other instruments, but one instrument at the time clearly in the spotlight.
The full set is available for streaming in a dedicated Soundcloud playlist here:



I took pictures of the actual instruments when possible (there’ll be a couple of snapshots using my favorite samples, the rest is actual instruments I own).
