Bohemian Rhapsody

every year i have the masterplan to try out something new. this years plan was to finally learn to play the piano. after 20 years of being a 1 man band with almost full playback i wanted to do shows where i would just sit on stage with a piano and play everything live. my goal: i wanted to be able to play bohemian rhapsody till the end of the year. the rehearsal started surprisingly good and after a few months i already had a repertoire of 15 songs of my own that i could play just by myself but no bohemian rhapsody of course... and then in summer came the invitation to do a 1 hour liveshow for Zündfunk that would also get fully broadcasted. they told me that they also had a grand piano in the studio, immediately i was obsessed to do an all acoustic show for them and rehearsed like crazy, almost every free minute in july but after a few weeks i caught a bad carpal tunnel syndrome on my left hand and had to give up the project and return to the good old singalong to playback technique. as an revenge my ipod let me down during the live broadcast: there was a crucial moment when the broadcast started and my ipod suddenly was just dead and had to get rebooted ( top foto ). still there was a wish to do shows in a different way: when i did a concert for dockville festival in hamburg in august i decided to sing a personal song to each guest. i thought it would be nice to have an intimate situation like in a small boat. to my own surprise i found a boat and brought it there( bottom foto ) and then i sat with 1 or most of the time a few guests and sang them right in the face. in the end that show went on for over 7 hours . But still here is also the usual kind of shows. For my summershow in valentinsstüberl not only did i smash 3 microphones but also my beloved kaossilator just passed away. thanks to my nice audience member lo i have a new one now. i love my audience.
