WAR and Audio Visual Shows






Beograd 1999

Doing audio visual productions and shows was for me always about telling something. Belgrade had a strong impact on me when we had this gig in an post industrial area, with the roof coming down and yellow letters indicating that the building used to be a clinic before the war. It was a great show with some highlight. There was this amazing combination of Peter Kirn doing sound and Roy Datom aka Abduct doing Visuals. Also Noitu was blasting. And I enjoyed a lot playing the masterings of the upcoming studio album and the new visuals. But there was one thing that took my special attention and it was not possible to not see it everywhere around: Belgrade was bombed in 1999. It was in the media back in that time. But let’s rewind it without the brutal neutrality of the mainstream media. This is what happened to my live conceptual music in Belgrade with this Serbian band (Marko Jevtic and others) and two weeks later when improvising with my good friend Moritz Haberkorn from I do War, too. But without killing people.



LTP @ Roböexotica 2013 Vienna

Just short. Enjoy the mixes and of course the new track and music video that I produced short before the event because of the massive inspiration from the set list I had at hands.
The robots were amazing too. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures from them. Was too much occupied by robot arms serving drinks and steam punk mechanisms doing things that you could not even imagine, and playing the set of course.
