New Video: The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle

In June 2009 my family and I spent a wonderful day at the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. Trauttmansdorff Castle is very close to Merano, Italy (South Tirol). I took my Canon HF 100 and tried to catch some of the beautiful scenery, plants and flowers. The background music I played myself and recorded it with Cubase AI 4 and free VST instruments. If you like the music, you can download a shorter version of this song from another blog entry.

The original Vimeo page of the video is here.

Have Fun!


Song “Another Chance” released


I just released a new Smooth Jazz song “Another Chance”. If you like Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Brian Culbertson, Lee Ritenour etc., then I would be interested in how you like my song. Since I want to use it as background music for one of my recent movies, I made it a bit longer than the usual 3-4 minutes. I played everything myself and used Cubase AI 4 as DAW and free VST instruments from xfactor. You can download a high quality wma (12 MB) or a medium quality mp3 (5 MB).

Have Fun!
