Civitas Urbanus (new album release)

My new album "Civitas Urbanus" is offered as free donation-ware at

Album notes:
2007 is an important year. For the first time in human history more  
people are living in cities, compared to living in other areas on the  
planet's surface. I let this amazing fact inspire me during the  
difficult task of cutting down one year of musical exploration to  
less than one hour.

The twelve instrumental pieces are all solo perfomance work, played  
on the instruments Alto Traverse Flute, Tenor Sax, Fretless  
Sustainiac Guitar, Stratocaster Twang Bar Guitar and Akai EWI 4000s.  
EWI stands for "Electric Wind Instrument" and is to be played similar  
to a sax or a clarinet. I play both the EWI's built-in synthesizer  
sounds and use it as a MIDI controller for virtual instruments  
provided by the software Logic Pro. Most songs were created and  
recorded as instant improvisations with the real-time sampling/ 
looping software Mobius. I personally regard also Mobius as my  
instrument, since I'm really experiencing that I'm playing Mobius  
with my foot controller board while also playing the above mentioned  
instruments with my hands.
