The EP "Vienna Tapes" brings together eight selected [dunkelbunt] tracks and their instrumental versions from the years 2015-2019. It is the album of my mental and musical awakening in the realms of the Near – and increasingly – Far East: The journey takes off from the Balkans (Wish) to the Maghreb (Viens Avec Moi, L'Amour fidèle) and Kenya (Mia Kwa Mia) to the Arab Middle East (Space Walker) and then ultimately to India (Le Ta Jaoji, Velavan).

Alix Oder Nix's "Weit Weg" (Far Away) is the slogan and the motif of my new production, which got a kick-start with "Wish" during the refugee crisis of 2015/16. Apart from a conducive partnership with the American West Coast musician Will Magid (Balkan Bump), the "Vienna Tapes" draw substantially from the pool of international and globally active musicians in Vienna: Alix Oder Nix, the Berlin MC, a lyrical and performative matador; South Indian singer Anuradha Genrich and jazz singer / songwriters Lisa Cantabile and Mela Maria Spaemann; the rapper Cloud Tissa from Kenya and the Moroccan Raï singer Kadero Rai; finally the Rajasthan-born brothers Haider and Pintoo Khan as brilliant singers and percussionists ...
