How would you summarize this past year on artistic and personal level?
I had some very nice trips for 1000SCHOEN concerts. NINA (ALLSEITS) and me traveled to Ostrow Wielkopolski near Poznan´. Played at a Festival in an ex-Synagoge. Together with JÜRGEN (FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM) I was in Kaunas (Lithaunia). Great trip! I played in Hamburg for two times. Lots of fun! With MELVIN (we are VIBRÆ) had interesting times in Bochum, Dortmund, Osnabrück. There will come new stuff in January 2014 on NITKIE RECORDS. 1000SCHOEN – Paintings at the Nightsky. And there will come stuff of me on MACIEJ’s Label, ZOHARUM.
What album you listened to most often this year (not necessarily released in 2013)?
Not especially cds. I heard stuff of MAIN, NURSE WITH WOUND, some dark ambient stuffs, SUNN O))), sometimes Witchhouse music.
And best trip? Most beautiful or magic place you visited this year?
I had some, please look to point 1). AWe were also in Goslar, Dresden, Berlin, Münster. JÜRGEN had a great gig in Oostende/Belgium. We were there together. WIM from Silken Tofu organized it in a bunker-area directly at the coast of North Sea. The German Atlantikwall was the concert location. I’ll play there next year… Oh, not related to music…. right… We made a sweat lodge this year near Görlitz. That was good.
