Entertainment for the Braindead Tour mode is.. on! And oh, what a day for traveling! All the way south to Munich today, for a last show with this awesome fella John Smith, and after we had snow in Hamburg and rain in Berlin, the weather gods are up for something else again. Who would've thought!
I brought a healthy breakfast, coffee and a sunny mood, you can bring some friends tonight if you're in the area...

Entertainment for the Braindead After a snowy gig night in Hamburg, I'm watching John Smith soundcheck in Berlin. Backstage at PRIVATCLUB Berlin even the Christmas mood is taken care of. See you tonight!

Entertainment for the Braindead And there they are. Funny to hold these in my hands.

And by the way: it struck me how many of the names on my list of orders so far are familiar to me – because I've scrawled them onto old lists and envelopes before, sometimes more than once, years and years ago. It's a beautiful, exhilarating feeling, knowing that some of you out there have been with me for so long now,a bit like distant travel companions, still supporting new steps I take. Really, it feels very reassuring and I am beyond grateful for that!

Entertainment for the Braindead Finally! Picking up the CDs right now... Package delivery in Berlin is an adventure, so they made two extra rounds in the logistics nebulae and were then delivered to Friedenau instead of Friedrichshain - which is on the other side of town. But hey, other people pay to do weight-lifting at the gym, right? 
Anyhow, here they are, and you can order one on Bandcamp now, or grab one at a concert. Thanks to those who already ordered - mail is gonna go out on Wednesday!0

Entertainment for the Braindead So yeah, now, well, it's official - and I don't really know what to say for now. I'll say stuff later, because this release has triggered quite some general pondering, and I feel like I should explain some things. But later. For now: 

You can look me up on the usual streaming sites, but actually, the best place to go is bandcamp:

Entertainment for the Braindead A little excursions today, to We Make Waves, a conference (and festival) for women, trans + non binary people in music. It felt good to share and  discuss other people's experiences, insights, questions and see how much good vibes and solidarity there actually is amongst the creative folks, and how easy it can be to connect once you overcome your shyness. Thanks to the people who have put this up! Whoever is in Berlin and interested: workshops, talks and performances are also continuing tomorrow!

Entertainment for the Braindead This was last week at Y2K17 International Livelooping Festival Santa Cruz - performing a song accompanied by Jorge Medina aka. MIDI Pipe.
Captured by Sandra Taylor. (Thanks for all the wonderful pictures, Sandy!)

The snapshot sums up something that is crucial for the spirit of these events and the community: Jorge and I met during the Livelooping Festival in Mexico earlier this year, now we both played again in California. (And besides, I'm playing the gorgeous 12-string guitar of my dear looping friend Rick Walker.)
 As people who are using loop samplers as what I call the band substitute for the socially awkward, (almost) all of us are lonesome cowboys on stage. Makes it even nicer that it's not a rare thing for spontaneous jams and collaborations, even across genres, to sprout from exactly that. Well, to cut a long story short, I'm really grateful to be part of this group of people.. <3

Entertainment for the Braindead Back home from California.
It was lovely to bask in the sun before diving into Berlin's winter, lovely to see the desert again, wonderful to meet old and new friends down there and be reunited with large parts of the loop family. Weird and nice to have a place on the other side of the world where you feel like you belong, and a place in the hearts of people that are scattered all over the world but will meet in different places from time to time to celebrate friendship and music.

Here's a video from my performance at Center Stage Theatre in Santa Cruz, where the Y2K17 Loopfest headliner's concert took place. A huge thank you once again to Rick Walker and all the people who contributed to this!

Entertainment for the Braindead Being on the legendary stage of The Range in Slab City was a particularly touching experience for me. Thanks to Builder Bill for the invitation and for all the slabbers who came out on a Friday night. I will now continue my cruise to the desert until the Loopfestival in Santa Cruz begins..

Entertainment for the Braindead A rainy Saturday afternoon in Mönchengladbach.. I made music and soup for Luisa, André and Dave of MG Kitchen TV and got this cool video in return!

Featuring two songs of my upcoming EP "SUN" that will be released on November 17th! And, well, my recipe for pumpkin soup (in German). Hope you enjoy.

Big thanks to Lulugraphie / Luisa & André Sole!

Entertainment for the Braindead Tonight I'm in Trier, tomorrow I'll be in Mönchengladbach, cooking pumpkin soup. MG Kitchen TV have this great format where they let artists play a track and then have them cook while being interviewed. The recipe will be available, too..
(I tested it last week, see the image below)
