Swiss Synthesizer Museum LP Unconditional Countour

The Unconditional Contours album which I made in a residency at the SMEM Swiss Museum for Electronic Isntruments in Fribourg last year  is going to be released for the general public around 2 october. This LP was released last year November already for backers of the museum crowdfunding plan but will now be available in the recordstores.  

Anyways…The SMEM has an amazing collection of more then 5000 synths, keyboards, organs, drummachines, fx machines and more…ranging from a 1930s NOVACHORD to an ELKA Synthex and everything in between. The cool thing is that you can book a date in their playroom and play/record/freak with a selection of the collection yourself. For more information on visiting the collection and booking the playroom check out their website

You can preorder the vinyl and digital here

The Second Audition Movie

I did the soundtrack for this Dutch movie called ‘The Second Audition’ directed by the Iranian Dutch director Pouya Gourabi. Its very arthouse and you probably need an IQ of 200 to make head or tail of it. If you are in the USA you can watch it on Amazon here the rest of the world has to wait a bit or maybe you can download it on TORRENTZZZZZZZ

The synopsis goes something like this: After a failed audition for a theatre play an actor is offered a mysterious job in which he has to tail a woman from a well to do family.

I also play a very little role in it! Performing a scene with my Hohner KS49 keyboard (Which is a German version of the CASIO HT700) in some kind of ‘theatre grottesco’  with Guy Schmerzlabor doing some weird stuff. More info about that keyboard and sound snippets here

Here is a trailer of the movie:

Sammy Osmo Schaduw Horizon album reissue on double vinyl LP

My 2008 Sammy Osmo – ‘Schaduw Horizon’  album is going to be reissued by the London Utter records, coming out in a fancy 2xLP package with lots of extras such as inserts, sticker and a foldable chess set!

Originally released in 2008 on the Strange Life label on a CDR this ice cold Yamaha DX7IID drenched spywave album was very much influenced by real locations in the vicinity of the The Hague dune studio where this was recorded. 

The album has been remastered then transferred and cut by Helmut Erler at D&M. It is housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve that opens to reveal detailed stories behind each track, while the entire back cover is a life-size chess board for any budding Alberts wishing to play a game. A special ‘confidential documents’ envelope completes the package and contains a map of the abandoned zoo, a top secret letter including coordinates of the locations featured in the story, DX7 schematics, foldable chess pieces and a ‘Schaduw Horizon’ sticker.

Pre-order your copy here on the UTTER bandcamp, or the Phonica recordstore, it should be out somewhere in August! Its also available digitally on my Legowelt bandcamp here for free/pay what you want in the meanwhile…
