Forss Ecclesia – App Launch & Release Party @ Berghain Berlin (May 2nd)


Ecclesia is the latest release of electronica artist Forss (musician and entrepreneur; co-founder of soundcloud). In collaboration with and designer Leo Lass this audio-visual album was created. Here is a sneak peek of the iPad App (see video below) and some exclusive stills of tracks #8 and #10, which I worked on a lot. I was lead programmer on the app (which also includes the event visuals), and I’m pretty proud to announce that on May 2nd there will be a big release party at the Berghain in Berlin!

Repair / Updates


Whow, quite some time of inactivity here… Yet, stuff has happened. Alexandra and me are blogging Berlin-Updates and -Experiences on

We just came back from the ARS Electronica Festival (Tagline “Repair”), which was great this year. Be shure to check it out if you can. It was great to see Dorian Concept and James Blake there, two guys whose music I really love (former I have worked with once, latter I have taken music from for another piece of animation). David O’Reilly is about to release his new short, The External World, which I am eagerly awaiting to watch. Mount Kimbie in Session at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide show this week, also really enjoyed this one. Seen Nosaj Thing at the Icon Club a week before, was nice too. Musicwise, so to say, everything is fine, and I’m also looking forward to some big dates in Berlin, too.
