A first „Real“ Track
Chords, Atmos, lots of drums - and a nice melody. I think, I‘ve just finished my first track now! Check it out on SoundCloud! I hope this brings a bit of summer feeling to you!
I’ve tried Something Different…

Spring time is coming and it is time for the beach: here is my first song with chord progressions and a change of scales. Looks like I‘m making progress...
My first Cowbells!

Hello World - Update
Hello World, I have made some progress on the sound of my first song - for my ears, the notes seem now fitting much better.
